Curriculum Overview 2019/2020
Take a look around our classroom!
Here are some pictures for you to see some of the exciting things the Year 1 cohort of 2019-2020 got up to.
There will be more information about academic year 2020-2021 coming soon.
We have been looking at Florence Nightingdale. We discussed why she is remembered today and why she is known as the ‘Lady of the Lamp’? Then we looked at our school values and identified the values shown by Florence Nightingdale.
We made our own models of Tudor houses and put flames on them to represent houses burning in the Great Fire of London. We discussed why they burnt so easily.
This week we have been busy making our class decorations for our school Christmas tree. We choose to make our own small trees by wrapping green wool around cardboard triangles. Finally we stuck on coloured pom poms finishing with a large pom pom and loop at the top to attach them to the tree.
Great Fire of London Artefacts
This week we had a museum loan of artefacts showing the equipment used by firefighters in 1666. The children enjoyed handling and talking about the items, explaining how they are different from modern day fire equipment.
Children in Need
The children enjoyed decorating biscuits for ‘Children in Need’. Thank you for your donations.
Yellow class have been busy making poppies from recycled plastic bottles to decorate the trees in the church yard. It made a wonderful, symbolic outdoor display for Remembrance Day.
Jewish Harvest - Making a Sukkah
Harvest Festival at Church

Our Class Charter
As a class we decided that we want our classroom to be safe, fair and happy. I asked the children who is going to make this happen. We agreed that this is the responsibility of all of us. We all have to agree to do things to make sure that the classroom is safe, fair and happy. We created our own class charter which is used to remind each other how to behave in school. The children coloured themselves to help remind us that we have all agreed to follow the class rules.
During Art week the theme was Architecture. We looked at the famous building 'The Leaning Tower of Pisa'. Take a look at some of the amazing art work our children have produced this week.
