Term 2

Wow! 1LA have had a busy Term 2!

Our theme this term was, “What is amazing about African Animals?’ We found out lots of fascinating facts!

In Science, we have learnt how to describe the features of different animals, classify animals, recognise different animal adaptations AND identify if animals are carnivores, herbivores or omnivores! We have learnt lots of facts along the way, ask us something about meerkats or lions!


In Maths this term, we have been learning all about shape, money, fractions and measuring.

In English, we read some excellent books including Siba and Saba. We loved this story as it helped us to think about our hopes and dreams just like Siba and Saba. We also enjoyed ‘Giraffe’s Can’t Dance’ where we learnt the story and retold it from Gerald’s point of view.


Take a look at our wonderful Art Work. This term, we created some African Animal prints. We had to design our own tile, carve it out and then print it. We then used our prints to create the wonderful weaves you can see in the pictures!

Term 1

1LA have had a fantastic start to Year 1! It was a slightly different start to the year but we have settled in really well following our class charter rules – ask us what they are!


This term, we have been learning all about ‘ourselves’. We enjoyed creating our own self-portraits and reading our story “What makes me a me?”.


We used the story to help us write letters to our teachers telling them all about ourselves. We also enjoyed reading Peace At Last and re-told the story with our own characters.


In Maths, we have been using the numicon to show our understanding of number and now to add and subtract too!
