January in Year 1!
Term 2 January 2019
We have had a great start to our new term with a jam packed January! We loved sharing our Christmas Diary homework projects during the first week back.
We have been keeping warm doing lots of sports including a penguin obstacle course with Miss Amelia’s class.
We had a lovely trip to the Reina Sofia which has been so helpful when we have started talking about different materials for our science project. We were able to see lots of different materials being used in the museum and have been learning about metal, plastic, paper, wood, glass, rock and water; how it feels and looks.
In art we have been learning about Monet and looking at some of his famous impressionist paintings. Last term we learnt all about how to draw our portrait but this term we are looking at landscapes. We recreated our own versions of Monet’s famous garden paintings using finger painting and then using cotton wool buds for the smaller details.
The School Day of Non Violence and Peace is celebrated each year on the 30th January. To mark this day we watched a presentation and then discussed ways in which we can be peaceful in the classroom as well as throughout our lives. We created beautiful white doves as a craft activity and wrote inside our ideas about what peace is.
