In Year 1 we have been working hard practising our carols for the Christmas concert. If anyone would like to practise at home here are some useful links:

Term 2 - Around the World!
This term Year 1 have been really enjoying our topic 'Around the World'. We have taken a whistle stop tour around the world, conquering a continent a week!
Week 1 we delved into the African Savannah producing some fantastic Art work in the style or Gloria SSali. We used wooden sticks and paintbrushes to create our dotty animal pictures.
Week 2 we visited the wonderful world of Asia. We practised our dance skills by learning some Bollywood moves. We also learnt about Chinese culture and made some fantastic Carp Kites.
Week 3 we stayed closer to home and learnt all about Europe. First we did some map work and learnt about where all the different parts of the UK are. The teachers then really enjoyed preparing a delicious food tasting. We tried Greek olives, German sauerkraut and even Polish sausage! Some we found yummy, but some tasted yucky!
Week 4 we learnt about Oceania and produced some Aboriginal artwork. We also had fun learning about all the different animals and insects in Australia. One of our favourite parts of the week was sticking our tongues out and learning the New Zealand Haka!
Week 5 was North America week and we had a sports focus. We decided to try our hand at basketball skills, working well in our teams passing and bouncing the balls.
