Exciting news! We have received a letter from a local Castle asking us to help them write an information text for visiting Year 1 pupils. We will be researching different castles, its features and writing own information text.
We will be recognising and using language related to dates, including days of the week, weeks, months and years.
We are learning to tell the time to the hour and half past the hour and draw the hands on a clock face to show these times.
In addition, we will sequence events in chronological order using language (for example before and after, next, first, today, yesterday, tomorrow, morning, afternoon and evening).
We will be introducing the pupils to what history is, investigating significant monarchs in British history including King Henry VIII and Queen Elizabeth I. Then we will compare different types of houses from these periods of time to modern day houses.
Linking with our history topic we will be looking at and creating our own portraits. We will be researching and comparing different artists including Picasso, Paul Klee and Andy Warhol and discussing the different styles. Then we will be making our own versions.
We are learning about special symbols and objects within different religions.
We are learning that household products, including medicines, can harmful if not used properly. In addition, we will be learning about rules that keep us safe, for example road safety, swim safe and internet safety etc. We will be learning about people who help us, how we can ask for help and what privacy means.
