Welcome to Year 1! All of the grown-ups in Year 1 are so excited to begin our new learning journey together.
Our topic for this half term is 'Transport' where we are going to travel into the past to discover how vehicles have changed, since the first hot air balloon all the way to the invention of the car!
We are going to be reading some really exciting stories in our English lessons, including 'The Hundred Decker Bus' by Mike Smith, which will help inspire us to create our own imaginative vehicles. Will the vehicles have a balloon to help it fly or lots of wheels to help it race really fast? Once we have designed a vehicle, we will use our newly learnt skills of adding adjectives and finding nouns, to create our own leaflets and stories to share the adventures our new vehicles will go on.
Starting in Year 1 is an exciting adventure as we will all be able to learn and discover new subjects we haven't explored before. We will be creating science experiments to discover how the weather changes across the year, developing our computing skills in our ICT lessons and creating our own music pieces using a range of different instruments.
We are looking forward to discovering so many new exciting things together and we can't wait to see what other exciting learning opportunities we have throughout the year.
