Welcome back! Our theme this half term is ‘Interdependence’ and our key question is ‘Who do I depend on and who depends on me?’. To support us with our learning we will be exploring the story books ‘Bubble Trouble’ and ‘The snail and the whale’. In Science, we will learn about our bodies, specifically the 5 senses we depend on and how some animals depend on us. In English we will write the sequel of Bubble Trouble and create our own adventure story using The Snail and the Whale to inspire us.
Welcome back! Our theme this half term is ‘Sustainable Development’ and our key question is ‘Do I understand the origins of what I have?’. To support us with our learning we will be exploring Fairtrade and the Roald Dahl classic ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory’. During Fairtrade fortnight, we will learn about fair-trade and celebrate the people that grow the food we eat. We will use ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory’ to explore the origin of chocolate and create a persuasive piece of writing encouraging Willy Wonka to use fair-trade chocolate to make his treats.
On Friday 19th October, Year 1 walked to Alexandra Park to meet the Ugly Duckling. We went on a bird hunt, then fed the birds and finished off with an autumn walk. Click the picture to the right to scroll through.
Welcome back! Our theme this half term is ‘Values and Perceptions’ and our key question is ‘Can I understand that people have different values?’.
Here are some photos of the learning that the children took part in over the last half term:
To support our learning of ‘Values and Perceptions’ next half term, Year 1 will be visiting The Lowry Theatre to watch the live show of ‘Stickman’ on Thursday 6th December 2018. This will be a fantastic and exciting opportunity for us and will support the children with their learning.
We will be travelling to and from The Lowry via the Metrolink. We will leave school at approximately 9.15am and walk to St Werburghs Metrolink stop; here we will get on to the Metrolink’s direct line to Media City. Once at Media City we will have a walk around Salford Quays and have our lunch. We will then attend the 1.30pm showing of ‘Stickman’ at the Lowry. Once the show is finished we will board the Metrolink and walk back to school. Please collect your child from the playground at the later time of 4pm.
Next half term we are learning about the Ugly Duckling as part of our Diversity theme. We would love to take the children to Alexandra Park to see the ducks in their natural environment. As the seasons are changing, we would also like to take this opportunity to explore the signs of autumn.
Welcome to a new year at Manley Park! We hope you have had a wonderful summer and that you
are ready for an exciting half term in Year 1. Our theme this half term is ‘Diversity’ and our key
question is ‘Can I recognise the beauty of different people and places?’.
