Welcome to Autumn Term in Year One! The first half of the term we have had a huge focus on fine motor skills and phonics and you can really see the impact this has had on the children's work! We have enjoyed extra PE sessions and the new guided meditation and yoga. We are watching newsround daily and having some brilliant discussions about the topics it brings up. 


Our first display was a collage self-portrait with our names written in rainbow paints. We then went on to make another display later in the term based around our learning about what an onomatopoeia is. We enjoyed making fireworks and shouting out an onomatopoeia as we painted them. Have a look below at the displays!

In RE this term we are thinking about the creation of the world and the Christian creation story. Below is an example of the art we did about what we think is wonderful in our world.

We also learnt about the celebration of Diwali and made some beautiful collages.

In literacy we learnt the story of The Little Red Hen off by heart and drew out story maps. We then made our own different versions of the story and wrote them in mini books. We are all now authors and illustrators.
