Hello Year 1,

I hope you all had a lovely weekend.


It was lovely to speak to lots of you on the phone last week. I cannot wait to see you all return to school next week for one last week altogether. The blog has been very quiet this week. Please remember to share your news and work on it.


Keep up the hard work and I will see you all soon.


Have a good week.

We will then compare the difference between an ocean and a sea. In this lesson you will need a pencil, a piece of paper or an exercise book and your wonderful brain. Let’s get started!


How do we hear?

In today’s lesson, we will be learning about sound. We will be specifically looking at how our bodies allow us to hear sounds. We will then learn that not everyone has the ability to hear things and we will look at what deaf people may use to hear or communicate.


To create a sculpture focused on reuseable materials.

Today, we will be creating our own sculptures using reusable materials from our homes! Our inspiration will be from a British artist called Michelle Reader, who is known for her unique sculptures made out of reusable materials.
