Welcome to Cedar Class!
Welcome to the autumn term in Year 1! We hope you had a fantastic summer. We are settling into the new start of the school year and we are looking forward to lots of fun filled activities over the course of the term.
Our topic this term is 'Ourselves'. We will be looking at our bodies, our senses and how we grow. We will also be looking at explorers and inventors in history, taking a walk around the village, and also looking at belonging (RE) and friendship (PSHE). Please keep checking our page as we will be updating it and adding pictures of how much fun we are having with our learning! Please also look at the main school website for key dates happening this term .

One World Week - Italy
Cedar class have been learning about Italy during One World Week. We had a look at some of the famous buildings and we had a go at making some of these with Lego.
We looked at some photos of Venice and we looked at how they travel in this beautiful city. We know they use gondolas as a mode of transport and we had a go at making them with clay. We have also used water colours to make our own pictures of Venice and a gondola on the canal.
Cedar class have looked at the Italian flag and we were able to make our own flags. We also made a collage using the colours of the flag. Some are on display in our classroom.
Cedar class also learnt about the Sistine Chapel and how Michelangelo painted the ceiling. We had a change to draw our own pictures in the style of the famous artist himself!
The class have been designing their own kebabs and wrote some instructions about how to make them. The children made their kebabs and ate them afterwards. The kebabs were delicious.
