Art in Year 1
There is a focus on drawing and painting during autumn term and developing those key skills we need to be able to do this effectively. We are looking at the work of Alma Thomas and Wassily Kandinsky to spark our curiosity and interest!
This term we are focusing on our fundamental movements. This is movements such as running, jogging, jumping, hopping, galloping and side step. We participate in team games that enhance these skills along with throwing, catching and team work. 
European Languages Week!
We learnt some Spanish greetings such as hola, adios and gracias! We prepared and cooked 'potatas bravas' and 'tarte de manzana' using our own edible playground to pick the fruit and vegetables.
