Welcome to Year 1 with Mrs Wilde and Mrs Bolton.
Autumn Term 2016.
This term we will be learning about hot and cold climates. We will be learning about where a meerkat lives (hot desert) and comparing it to where a penguin lives (cold desert). As we are learning about ourselves and different animals we will be going on a trip to Chester Zoo to look at how animals live in different habitats and how they are adapted for the different climates that they come from.
Year 1's Roald Dahl Week.
As a school we celebrated 100 years of Roald Dahl. Each class focused one of his many books. In Year 1 we read Esio Trot! We spent the week creating our own tortoises and learning how to look after a real pet tortoise. We even had a very special visitor- Hedwig! Hedwig is a Horsefeild tortoise, just like Alfie (the tortoise in Esio Trot).
We are learning about dance during the Autumn first half term. Our focus for our dance lessons has been 'The Rainbow Fish'. We have been moving our bodies to make different shapes and movements, like the characters from the story. See if you can spot the sea creature we are trying to be!
