Autumn Term

Published on 24th October

My School and Me!

In our topic this half-term, year 1 have been learning about ourselves, our school and our community. We have been explorers and some of our favourite activities have been using and making maps. First, we explored our school grounds, working out where the different features were, creating a plan of our grounds. Then we went out into our local community and used our map reading skills to think how we were going to get to different places. We spotted local landmarks – road signs, bus-stops, the church, the park, the roads where some of us lived and even where Mrs D’Auria posted her letters! We really enjoyed creating items to make a large map on our wall and added photographs of ourselves in our favourite places. We also used digi-maps, our on-line mapping software, to add labels and photos of the places that we found on our walk. We’ve learnt so much about creating and using maps. Next stop after half-term – mapping the UK!

Year 1 Stick Man

Autumn Outside

As part of our science learning this term, year 1 have been exploring our school grounds for signs of autumn. We put on our wellie boots and went into the wild area on our field. We waded through the long grass, crunched in the leaves, hunted around our bug hotel and delved into the undergrowth in search of different shaped and coloured leaves, seeds that had fallen from the trees and the perfect sticks to make our giant stick-man with!

Year 1 Gingerbread People

Gingerbread

Published on 24th October

Year 1 have been reading the story of The Gingerbread Man, so we decided to make our own. We weighed the ingredients, mixed it all together, rolled out the dough, cut out the gingerbread men and then Mrs Pascolutti cooked them. Luckily, they didn’t run away so we were able to decorate them with a lot of different toppings. Then we ate them all up! They were DELICIOIUS!

The children had a fabulous first day at CYE, despite the slightly damp weather. They either sailed or built rafts or kayaked or assault coursed - they have really thrown themselves into the activities and the staff have been impressed by their positive attitude and teamwork!
