In year 1 we are teaching the children to be independent learners by following an enquiry base learning approach, we begin with a topic and discuss what the children already know. The children then come up with questions to find out what they would like to learn about that topic. They are then grouped based on the subject they are most interested in:
This half term our topic is 'The Olympics'
We have three groups: Types of olympics, Logistics and History.
Each week the children will be taught to research and investigate answers
to their own questions.
Just a couple of reminders:
*P.E. is on Monday and Thursday afternoons, so please make sure you
have your kit with you, don't forget something warm for outdoor P.E.
*Remember your book bags everyday, so we can make sure that you
are reading with an adult in school as well as at home.
Let's see how many "leaves" we can collect!
As part of science week we had an animal workshop. Sophie brought in a variety of different animals – Reptiles, amphibians and mini beasts. We met, were able to touch/hold and learn all about, a gecko, scorpion, salamander, millipede and a royal python.
Test your knowledge about animals with this game:
Can you find the mammals?
