Learning in Year One this half term: In English we are learning the story of ‘The Runaway Chapti’ we are learning it off my heart and will be writing a retell of the story adding in different adjectives, interesting sentence openers and conjunctions. Then we will be moving on to writing letters where we will look at ‘The Jolly Postman’ and the children will be writing their own letters and also posting letters to themselves at home! Finally, we will be working on instruction writing and they will write instruction based on planting. In Maths we will be securing our learning on multiplication and division and learning about capacity. In Science we are learning about plants related to our scented garden topic-growing our own ‘pizza garden’ and investigating the different parts of flowering plants and their uses. In RE we are continuing to learn about the Jewish religion and making comparisons to Christianity. Our Topic this half term is ‘The scented garden’. Let’s tiptoe through the tulips together and discover the sights, sounds and smells of the garden. This half term, we’ll find out how to look after plants, ask the experts questions and appreciate the flowers. We’ll write a letters to a garden centre to find out about taking care for plants, follow instructions and write instructions for planting their own garden. Discovering our green fingers will be fun when we plant and tend a pizza garden of herbs. We’ll also learn about the different parts of a plant and create our own ‘planting and growing’ action rhyme. Our senses will help us describe and sort a range of smells and we’ll make beautifully scented products. We’ll look closely at a wide variety of plants, create detailed, observational drawings and press real flowers to use in collages. At the end of our project, we will have become plant experts!
