We are learning the story of The Enormous Turnip in Year One. On Monday we looked at some turnips and passed them around the class. Some children thought that the turnips stunk! Other children noticed the smooth feel on the outside and how the turnips were a bit wet inside! We are always developing our observational skills and using real-life experiences to inspire our writing.
On Friday we made fruit salads!
We took care to wash our hands and talked about why this is important. We also talked about touching other people's food and how this can be unpleasant for others. The children enjoyed investigating the fruits, some of which were new to the children. We then enjoyed a fruit salad of banana, apple, kiwi, yellow plums and strawberries. Yum!
Today we had our first Outdoor Learning session. Before we went outside we talked about the weather and we looked at the clothes which I had brought with me. The children helped me to choose wellies for the wet grass, a warm jacket and a waterproof coat. After the children got changed we went out to our lovely outdoor classroom and sat on the benches to listen to the activity. Today I challenged the children to work together to create a waterproof tent for the teddies to spend the night in! The children worked so well together and shared ideas and tried different methods. Some camps even had a 'campfire'!
These are the topics that we are learning about in Years 1 & 2

In Year One we would like you to really focus on reading with and to your child every day.
If your child would like to stretch their brain further then they can try the spellings and maths homework below. If you complete these please bring them to school so that we can celebrate your child's home learning!
