A very warm welcome to Year 1
Adults in the classroom
We are enjoying the topic Australia! We have been locating it on a map, learning about all the differnt animals and we even had a visitor who was a native Australian. Book week will also creep up on us and we will be making and writing our own books. On world book day we will be dressing up as animals from stories and will be meeting Helen Cooper, an author and illustrator famously known for the story Pumpkin Soup.
In English we have been exploring traditional tales, the last of our traditional tales will be Goldilocks and the three bears. We will be taking this out of the classroom and visiting the Chiltern Open Air Museum where we will be undertaking their workshop including, making porridge on a fire.
This term we are also learning about the history of airplanes and how they have developed. We may even have a air hostess who will come and visit when she is not too busy helping out the pilot.
