Autumn Term 2 in Year 1

 

As we enter the second part of the Autumn term and the weather changes, we enter a 'winter wonderland' in our year 1 classes and find out more about cold climates. We start our journey in the Arctic and investigate the environment, habitats, animals and people. Please see below for a summary of the activities we have planned...

Cold Climate Landscapes...

 

Thank you so much to everyone that has sent in a fantastic cold climate landscape. They look amazing in our windows and really add to the feel of our 'Winter Wonderland' topic. We have thoroughly enjoyed looking at and talking about them and it has proved to be a great way to kickstart our topic! Thank you!

 

Winter Wonderland Fun...

 

We absolutely LOVE our new Winter Wonderland role play areas. We get to be Arctic explorers looking out for Arctic wildlife. We spot and identify paw prints, keep a tally of the animals we have spotted and take care of any that are injured. We also measure,weigh and tag any animals we find. We find time to cook fish on the barbecue and fire and, of course, remember to wrap up warm whilst reading our non-fiction books about the Arctic. Every day we record the day, the temperature and what we have spotted. Who knew that exploring could be such fun?!
