Year 1 – Goldfinch Class

Welcome to Year 1 – Goldfinch Class

Term 1

Our topic this term is ‘If you go down to the woods…’ We are reading stories about ‘Percy and the Park Keeper’ and using these to learn how stories are structured with a beginning, middle and end. We are also learning about characters and story settings. As part of science we are learning about animal habitats so we are visiting our school wood to look at where we think animals may live and why. As our class names are birds we are designing and making bird feeders in the hope that we can encourage some of our feathered friends to visit us. We are writing instructions to make sandwiches and bread and enjoying eating these!

Term 2

Our topic this term is ‘To infinity and beyond…’  We will be learning about space and the planets that are in our Solar system. We will also be using books by Claire Freeman (Aliens love Underpants) to take a light hearted look at who or what may live on planets other than Earth.
