This term our topic title is ‘We are weather forecasters’. It is a Geography based topic where we will be looking at where we live in contrast to other hot and cold locations around the world.
The children have enjoyed learning about the different countries of the UK and have carried out some research about each country including famous landmarks, the capital cities and foods that are traditionally eaten there.
We have talked about different countries that some of us have visited and have shared some photographs and experiences from Lapland, India and Africa.
In English, we have used the Jack and the Beanstalk story and innovated the ending with our own ideas. In D&T we have made moving, slider pictures for different parts of the Jack and the Beanstalk story.
We have also read the ‘Anna Hibiscus’ stories in English which has provided us with lots of information about what the African culture is like.

Trip – Weston Super-Mare
To introduce the Year 1 topic ‘Now and Then’, the year 1 children visited the Victorian seaside town of Weston-Super-Mare. They visited the Weston Museum where they looked at photographs of what Weston was like over 100 years ago. The children also handled lots of old and new artefacts and talked about how the objects have changed from ‘then’ to ‘now’. To experience a typical Victorian, beach holiday further, they enjoyed a delicious ice-cream and a donkey ride along the beach. Since their visit, they have also learned about how school life and toys have changed over time.
After learning about how the Victorian’s watched Punch and Judy when they visited the seaside, we decided to make our own puppets. First we designed our puppets by drawing and labelling them. Then we used different materials to make and decorate them. We experimented with different methods of fixing the materials together including; staples, glue and tape.
To close our Now and Then topic, we held a Victorian day. We all dressed up like Victorian children and took part in activities to experience life as a Victorian. We made a Victoria Sponge cake and learned about how this was one of Queen Victoria’s favourite sweet treats! We also experienced a Victorian exercise drill session, a school handwriting lesson and played games, which the Victorians played including charades, and the slipper game.
