Ourselves

This term our class topic is 'Ourselves!' We will be digging deep into our local area, recognising similarities and differences within ourselves and appreciating the wonderful city that we live in- Liverpool! 

English- we are exploring books written by a local author, Jude Lennon. We will learn about non-fiction texts and create a leaflet on Liverpool. In year one our main focus is to support children when writing sentences in a variety of different contexts. They are encouraged to use finger spaces between words. Children should try their best to use full stops and capital letters correctly. We will also be introducing them to a variety of different punctuation. We give children a purpose for their writing and hope to get them excited to put pen to paper!

Geography- we are exploring the local area, maps and directions. 

History- We will be comparing Liverpool to then and now, looking at timelines and our personal history. 

Science-  we are focusing on seasonal change. Within that we will discuss changes, learning new seasonal vocabulary and photographing different as many different weather photos. We will discuss the changes in trees and find out why its getting darker. 

Art- we will be exploring the famous Liverpool skyline. We will also be creating some twig pictures and twig sculptures. 

Maths- this half term we are focusing on numbers within 20. We will count, read, write, identify, represent, double and half, and use comparative language. Also we will learn about addition and subtraction within 20. Augmentation and reduction. We will represent and use number bonds; read, write, interpret and solve one-step problems.

PE- we are strengthening our motor skills and practising gymnastics. 

PSHE- we are discussing about responsibilities, who is who in our family and caring for ourselves. 

Music- we are learning rhythm in the way we walk and the banana rap!

Computing- we will be using the iPads to explore Purple Mash, create pictures and how to stay safe online. 

French- we are learning about how to introduce ourselves and toys. 

School values- respect and determination. 

 

"Today you are you, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is youer than you!"

 

We are very excited about our class trip on 13th November to The Museum of Liverpool. 

 

"Think left and think right and think low and think high. Oh the things you can think up if only you try!"

MGL World

MGL provides schools with solutions that support the creative and dynamic use of technology. MGL came to visit our class on Friday, it was so exciting! We used an app and a special icon t-shirt to look inside the human body. We also used apps called bee bot and blue bot to create an algorithm. We used our problem solving skills to program toys and reach a destination so that we could move onto the next level. MGL will be visiting our class fortnightly until Christmas to really make our class topics come alive with the support of innovative technology.
