This term Year 1 have two exciting topics to keep us busy. Before half term we will be looking at ‘Ourselves’ and then after half term will be learning about ‘Toys’.
To start our ‘Ourselves’ topic the children are going to be thinking all about themselves! The children will start the topic by having a trip to our local area and visiting our local park and shops. After that, they will be thinking about their school- the location and what it is like. We will also be learning about the human and physical features of the local environment. To finish off we are also to talk about what makes us special and present our ideas to our friends.
After half term, we will be moving into the 'Toys' part of our topic learning. Firstly, we will going on an exciting trip to learn about toys from the past. In the following weeks, they will learn about how toys from the past are different to toys today and consider children in the world that might not have toys. To finish our topic we will be taking part in the Christmas shoe box appeal and be making up shoe boxes for children who don't have toys.
