All Aboard the Year One Express! During this half term Year One will be learning about George Stephenson and his creation of the train. We will use the terminology of the past, years ago, months ago and recently to order events on the children's lives. They will then compare their timeline to that of George Stephenson. We will compare how trains are powered and the way that train travel has changed over time.
We will enjoy reading a number of stories related to trains including Thomas the Tank Engine and watching clips from the Polar Express to inspire our writing. We will be creating our own stories about a Runaway Train and creating posters to stop it escaping again!
This half term leads us into Easter and we will be learning about the Easter Story. Linked with this we will be cooking in the classrooms as part of our DT Learning. The children will each be creating a nest egg cake as well as building a box from a net to put the cake in. We will also end term with our Spring Hat Celebration.
The is lots of learning to be had in Year One so make sure to jump on the train with us as we depart the station!
