Welcome back after the summer break and welcome to Year One!
Wow a new class, a new teacher and new exciting Foundation Phase topics that will engage all pupils and develop their skills.
Our topics this term are: ‘Pop-Up" and ‘"Remember, Remember"
For our first topic we will be looking at Traditional Tales. At the heart of this project children will learn how to write and re-tell traditional fairy tales, and learn the additional skills of using verbs and pronouns in their own writing. We will be studying many different fairy tales including "The Magic Porridge Pot", and having a go at writing our own version of the story. We will be making porridge and writing instructions. We will be designing and building shelters for the Three Little Pigs, and the children will learn about the properties of different materials. The children will be able to develop a role play area of their own choosing. We will be going on to look at The Gingerbread Man, and describing the characters within the story.
After half term we will have a new topic - "Remember, Remember". More on that later.
