Half Term Information Autumn 2 2023

This half term, Year 1 have been very busy practicing and performing our Nativity play, 'A Twinkly Nativity'. The children have worked very hard to learn their lines, songs and dances. We had to work very hard to use loud voices and speak clearly! We have also been learning about all sorts of different transport. We found out how transport has changed since Victorian times and we wrote a story about a 100 decker bus! This linked really well with Maths and solving problems.
In Science, we learnt about materials.  We loved exploring and discovering what the properties of materials are and what materials can be used for.  We all took part in a floating and sinking experiment.  We predicted what may happen when putting different objects made from different materials into water.
During this half term we had 'Anti-bullying week'.  During our PHSE lessons, we focused on what makes a good friend and how we can be a good friend to others.  
We have worked very hard this term and we are all looking forward to our Christmas break. We are also excited to come back in January and get into our new topic!
