Year 1 Autumn 2

Year 1

This half term we have had fun in our Art lessons finding out more about colours
We learnt which colours are the primary colours and after looking at paintings by Piet Mondrian, we used these to make our own fantastic owl pictures.
Then we experimented by mixing the primary colours to discover which secondary colours we could make.

We have also been researching the Great Fire of London. We started by thinking of questions we wanted to find the answers to. Then we used a variety of sources to discover the answers. These included non-fiction books, paintings and the internet.
Now we have learnt lots about the Great Fire of London, here are some of the questions we found the answers to.

In R.E. we have been thinking about candles; how candlelight makes us feel; how we use candles in celebrations and how we sometimes use candles to help us remember people and events. We learnt how important candles are for the Hindu festival of Diwali and how they are used by Christians during Advent. We then made our own Christingles.


In Literacy we have been getting into the Christmas spirit by looking at Christmas poetry. We have created our very own Christmas poems using different verbs with the -ing suffix.
