Welcome to Year 1!
Class Teachers: Mrs Irwin, Miss Terry, Miss Watson
Year 1 is a very exciting time for children and we make it even more exciting by organising special events throughout the year.
At Southey Green, we promise to provide our children with 6 unique experiences in each year group. We call these 'Southey's Super Six.' These tasks give our children something to look forward to each year and in places, provide an opportunity that the children may not have had previously.
Take a look at our topics for this coming year. We intend to teach the children a wide range of skills alongside an array of knowledge for each unit. There may be slight changes throughout the year depending on weather, availability and other opportunities that arise.
Our Learning in Year 1
In our Animal Magic topic for science, we named and identified different animal types and we have been able to sort them into categories. We have expanded our vocabulary this half term and we have confidently used different scientific words. We learnt about the human body and labelled our different body parts. As part of this topic, we know which part of the body links with our 5 senses. We even tasted different delicious fruits and described how they tasted. Yummy!
Food and Nutrition
We have designed, made and evaluated our very own fruit cheesecakes! We learned about how to keep clean and hygienic and how easily germs spread with a glitter experiment. The results shocked us all,
We then went on to learn about the different food groups and types of food such as vegetables, carbohydrates and proteins.
Following on from this, we moved on to designing and then making our very own fruity cheesecakes. In the cooking room, we practised the skills of chopping and mixing.
Our cheesecakes tasted delicious and my teachers loved them too!
