Welcome to Year 1 Mozart Class!
What a fantastic start we have had, settling into our new learning environment. However we are no longer called year 1!
This week each class was given a new class name. We were all given a challenge to guess our names. We are now called Mozart class.
The staff helping us in Year 1 this year are;
Miss Bell (every morning)
Miss Hall and Miss Clulow (Afternoons)
This half term our topic is The Romans. We are kick starting this next week with a special visitor coming to see us on Tuesday!
This half term (Summer 1 2018), Year 1 have been studying the topic ‘Treasure Island’.
To set this topic off we had a pirate themed day; dressing as scary pirates with new names such as ‘Captain Treasure’ etc. We took part in a treasure hunt and learnt new songs.
The topic has involved learning about the history of piracy. The children created fact-files about Blackbeard and other famous pirates. Our most recent piece of writing was an explanation about ‘How pirate ships work’.
We have really enjoyed being creative throughout this topic; creating our own treasure maps and role playing in our pirate shop.
