Welcome to our Year 1 class page
Autumn Term 2020
Mrs Mortali is our class teacher.
Mrs Kanani is our TA in Year 1.
As part of a broad history theme, Year 1 have been learning about 'childhoods' including those of important and historical black figures in history. They learnt about Bob Marley, Lewis Hamilton and Ruby Bridges. They also listened to many black artists throughout the week including poems by Maya Angelou. In art, they learnt about black history in Australia and America and painted aboriginal art and created their own totem poles. These are the pictures of their beautiful work which is now on display in school.
For the children's history topic this half term, children have been learning about childhoods and how they have changed over time, including toy crazes, homes and schools. They have designed and made their own toys and in school created toys out of card, exploring different folding techniques and using lots of fine motor skills. They made helicopters, rolling toy dogs, snails, flapping birds, pecking birds and cup and ball toys. They learnt that toys used to be home made and made out of wood and metal whereas now most toys are made of plastic and use batteries. They really enjoyed playing with their toys!
