Welcome to Year 1!
Our learning journey topic for the first half term is ‘We’re Going on a Journey!’. We will have the opportunity to explore our very own Gilbert the Bus in school and then design, create and evaluate our own 3D models of Gilbert. In geography we will undertake map work, learning to identify the 4 countries of the United Kingdom and we will use different media to recreate their flags. In history we will look into old and new forms of transport.
During our second half term our Learning Journey topic will be ‘A Toy Story!’ where we will be designing toys with moving parts, and looking at old and new toys and placing them in chronological order
