Year 1 (Class 4)

Welcome to Year 1
(Class 4)


We began the year in Class 4 with our topic on Superheroes. The children enjoyed making capes and masks and going out on a Superhero search around the school site. They posed as Superheroes and painted self portraits that are now brightening up our classroom walls.

In Science, we all learnt about how our Super Senses help us to find out about the world around us. We tried to identify well known smells and tastes without looking.

We investigated how sound travels and saw how sound waves made the rice jump. We used our hands to touch and our eyes to play a memory game with objects.

In History, we enjoyed learning about the life of a real Superhero, Florence Nightingale. We used role play to understand what it was like in Scutari Hospital.

Across the year we will use our visits to Forest School to learn about the different Seasons. This term we went out on a search for signs of Autumn. We used some of the things we found to decorate our Autumn crowns.
