Autumn Blog

A long term has flown by quickly and already Class One and Two are settled into their new classrooms and routines.  In September the children enjoyed reading ‘Wombat Goes Walkabout’. We wrote a letter to Wombat and we wrote a recount describing who Wombat met.

During the term Class 2 performed their class assembly reflecting on how we can help each other.

We worked hard to produce some wonderful work for our Art Exhibition, which was based on inspirational women. Class 1 chose to focus on ‘Emily Earhart’ and Class 2 produced their artwork based on ‘Marie Curie’.

In Religion, the children have impressed us with their love for God’s world and with all the beautiful things in it that they notice and enjoy.  We have found plenty to thank God for!  The children have responded to the Creation story by ordering the events of the seven days. We also made promises to ensure we look after God’s world.

In Science we have been learning about ‘Seasonal Changes’, the children really enjoyed going on our seasonal walk, looking for signs of autumn.

 

In our topic, ‘Changes Within Living Memory’, Year One explored how some aspects of our everyday lives have changed over time.  To begin, we compared our daily lives with similar experiences for people in the recent past. Pictures of our parents, grandparents and teachers showed us some similarities and also some differences.  The children thoroughly enjoyed hosting a coffee morning for parents and grandparents to find out what life was like when they were in school. They also had the chance to play with some real old-fashioned toys. When we got back to class, we talked about the interesting things that we found out.
