Mr Waine is the teacher in 1 Haydn and Mrs Nelder and Ms Hazell are the teaching assistants.
Autumn Half Term 2
1 Haydn has had a busy half term. In History we continued to look at life in the 1950s and especially enjoyed learning about how their toys differed to ours. We also learnt about the Queen’s coronation and were extremely surprised when she came to visit us and answered questions we had about her. We have also continued to look at non-fiction texts in English including some lovely balanced discussions about the seasons that were written using knowledge learnt in science.
We have continued to encourage creative writing and have retold some great stories such as Grandad's Island and The Robot and the Bluebird. Creativity has been plentiful with our Nativity rehearsals, music lessons and our explorations of colour, tints and shades in art, which helped us to create some beautiful ‘splash’ art based on the work of David Hockney.
Autumn Half Term 1
Year 1 have been very busy this half term. In science we have been learning about Trees, exploring different types, including coniferous and deciduous. We created some wonderful artwork, showing seasonal changes. Our history topic allowed us to explore our family tree, and learn about the recent past. We worked hard to produce our own family trees. Our Maths Through Story and Creative Writing lessons have allowed us to apply our knowledge and understanding of English and Maths in different ways. Dance lessons have provided lots of fun.
