 Please see the Parent Information Leaflet below to see what we are learning about this term.

Animal Habitats
This term so far, we have been learning about habitats! To help us with our learning, we have been on a school trip to Newquay Zoo which we really enjoyed. We learned about a range of animals and their habitats, including some who change colour to camouflage themselves! 
Christmas
Thank you to everyone who came to see our play 'Penguin Pete'. We hope you enjoyed our singing. We have had our Christmas class party and watched a show to celebrate Christmas at Pondhu.
We wish you a very merry Christmas from Year 1.
Science
In Year 1 we have looked at materials in science. We have labelled objects in the classroom to see what things are made of.
Our Senses
In the first half of the Autumn Term, we have been thinking about 'Ourselves.' In Science, we investigated our five senses and played games to explore each one. Following on from this, we did a senses walk during Trailblazing and record what we could see, hear, smell, touch and taste.

Makaton
We love learning Makaton in Year 1. It helps us to communicate with everyone in our class. So far this year, we have recapped all of the signs we learnt in Reception and have learnt a few new ones, too. Can you remember how to sign family, friend, field and playground?
English
We have been learning the story of the first Christmas. We have been focusing on using capital letters, full stops and finger spaces. We even did an assembly to celebrate our hard work.
Overnight Oats
While learning about being healthy, we had a go at writing instructions for and making our own Overnight Oats! We had a lot of fun and then ate our Overnight Oats for breakfast!
Playful Learning
We have enjoyed lots of playful learning time during the first half of the Autumn Term. We have been talking lots about our right to a healthy lifestyle and good healthcare when we are poorly. We decided to turn our first role-play area into a hospital!
Maths Learning
We have really been enjoying our Maths learning. We have been thinking more about numbers to ten and creating number bonds using the 'part, part, whole' method. We love doing Maths in lots of practical ways and are looking forward to using our new Maths Boxes for the rest of the year.
