Term 1: Amazing Animals

Amazing Animals



Welcome to our first term in Year 1!

We are so excited to have you join us.


Our topic this term is science-led. We will be using our science skills to identify, name, compare and group common animals. We will also explore what it means to be a carnivore, herbivore or omnivore and how the World’s habitats are interconnected. Our findings will then be published in a book for the school library! Watch this space for updates!


Literacy and art come together with elements of history, music and PHSE to explore colour. We will be experimenting with how colours are made and how the colours and sounds around us effect our emotions.

Battle of Britain Art Exhibition and Day

Griffin class you did us proud on Battle of Britain Day! You worked so hard on your art and on your costumes. Well done and thank you. 


The children's artwork was a culmination of their work on colour through art week, mixing and discovering primary and secondary colours, alongside their shades, tints and tones. The children learned about Wassily Kandinsky and how he was inspired by music, colour and mood. They then related that to images and sounds from the Battle of Britain, to show their own versions of his 'Concentric Circles' art work, each choosing to reflect colours and emotions that stood out to them from that time.
