Welcome to Year 1

This half term our topic is Dinosaur Planet.

In art we will be using different materials to create dinosaur collages. ICT to create our own images and we will become dino dentists using salt dough to make our own dinosaur teeth.

In ICT we will be practicing how to log on and log off the computers using our own log-in.  We will be learning how to use the internet safely and we will be using the internet to gather information about a dinosaur that interests us.

In Geography and History we will be finding out where fossils can be found in England. We will be looking at what the earth was like millions of years ago and learning about who Mary Anning is. 

In science we will be looking at what Dinosaurs ate, how they moved and their similarities and differences. We will be doing lots of sorting and learning the words herbivore, omnivore and carnivore. We will explore fossils using magnifying glass and sort them into different types.

In music we will be learning a dinosaur song. Then we will choose instruments to accompany our lyrics. We will use a variety of instruments to experiment with beat, rhythm and tempo.

P.E. will be on a Monday and Wednesday we will be doing games and dance during our P.E. sessions. Please remember to have you P.E. kit in school (polo shirt, shorts, plimsolls, trainers and jumper).

Please can you child bring a coat to school everyday, this will ensure that we are ready for whatever the weather may be.

Thank you,

Mrs Hall
