Year One trip to The Museum of Liverpool

We had a fantastic time on our trip to the museum. We learnt how we can identify if a toy is old or new, then we even got to play with them! We really enjoyed Little Liverpool and learning about our city. For more photos, please visit the SeeSaw App!

Curriculum Information Map

Below is the curriculum information map for our summer term...

Kandinsky Khaos

This term we have been studying the artist Wassily Kandinsky! We have been researching him and finding out lots of interesting facts. We have then been practicing our skills and experimenting with shapes and colours. The photographs below are of our final piece we created. We used a long sheet of fabric creating Kandinsky styles all over. We then painted it with fabric paint being sure to stay with the style of Kandinsky. We will hang our Kandinsky fabric on the KS1 corridor, so be sure to take a look when you're visiting our school. 

Year One Visit to their Local Green Space

We visited our local green space by using our geography skills by following a map. We observed the weather and added this to our weather journals. We then became scientists and used our senses to describe the environment. Then we went on a mini-beast hunt and recorded our findings. Finally we had a play in the park!

Year One trip to Garston Library

Year One took a trip to their local library. We were on the hunt for non-fiction books and found lots! We then browsed the library and chose a book we like to check out. We each have a library card now and can check books in and out of the library as we wish.
