In Autumn 2 term, we will be learning all about Great Britain including its countries, surrounding seas, capital cities and famous landmarks. 

This week we have had great fun recapping key concepts in our geography topic. To do this we used a fun interactive game on the ipads called Kahoot. In our co-operative learning groups we completed a quiz (the children chose their own team names!) 

We have been locating the countries in the UK in our topic lessons. Click here to play a fun game that locates the countries and capital cities in the UK! 

In our first lesson we looked at a map of the world and located where the UK is. Can you find where the UK is on the map?

Changes within Living Memory

In the Autumn term, our topic is going to be changes in living memory. Please take a look at our curriculum overview to see what else we will be learning! 

In our topic lesson, we looked at sources from the past and made comparisons to today! We really enjoyed looking at how technology has developed and comparing TV's, mobile phones and alarm clocks. Did you know that in the past someone had to use a 'knocker' on the window to wake people up?! 

In our design technology lessons with Miss Walton we designed, created and evaluated our own  model cars. We had great fun and could not wait to take our models home!

Welcome to year 1! The children have settled in extremely well over the past two weeks and have enjoyed learning about the causes of the rising temperatures in the Arctic in our 'Go Green' fortnight. They completed some excellent projects over the summer holidays. Thank you!
