Nile - Year One
In Year 1 this half term, we are continuing our ‘What would Little Red Riding Hood find in the woods?’ topic. We will be focusing on learning about different woodland animals and birds and being able to label the different parts of the animals/birds bodies in Science. During our English lessons we will be writing traditional stories and information texts about woodland animals. Our class novel this half term is going to be ‘Fantastic Mr Fox’ by Roald Dahl. During Maths lessons we will be focusing on addition and subtraction within 10, shape and place value within 20. In Design Technology we are going to be baking biscuits for Little Red Riding Hood to take to her Grandma and we will also be selling them at the Christmas Colour Fair. In Art we will be creating woodland animals made out of clay and we will be looking at the art work of Andy Goldsworthy. Our trip to Sconce Campsite will be on Thursday 22nd November where we will take part in lots of activities including, den building and a campfire!
