Year 1

Our first topic this year was Marvellous Me, in which the children shared all the fabulous things that make them special; this has been a great topic to help the children learn about their new classmates. 

The children have enjoyed a visit from Zoolab, where they got to handle a range of exciting creatures such as giant millipedes, African lands snails, rats and even a huge tarantula.  The children were taught about how the creature’s senses and bodies had key similarities to our own human ones.  The children have also enjoyed a local nature walk where they have collected nature’s treasure in handmade scarecrow bags, tying in with our science objective to learn and observe about the changing seasons.
