Welcome to the webpage for Year 1 Bees and Butterflies.
We have had an exciting start to the term. The children are settling in well and getting used to new routines.
So far this term we have been looking at traditional tales and enjoyed listening to the stories of The Little Red Hen and Jack and the Beanstalk. We will then be going on to share alternative versions of these traditional tales. In science and are going to be planting beans and observing them as they grow. In history, we are learning about significant people who have made a lasting impact on our world today. We are going to be looking into the life and work of Florence Nightingale. We will be looking at maps in geography and creating some of our own as well as locating where we live. In art, our focus artist is Van Gogh and we have been looking at how he used colour in his work. In RE we are looking at God within Understanding Christianity and how Christians believe he demonstrates his forgiveness through the parable of The Lost Son. In music we are learning about hip hop and practising clapping in time to the pulse.
