Year 1 Newsletter

Year 1 have had a very busy first couple of weeks back at school. We love our new topic, 'Oh I do like to be beside the seaside!'. Our classrooms have transformed into seasides with lighthouses, beach huts and shells!

In Art we are learning about an artist called Rachel Bennett who creates beautiful seascapes. Over the next few weeks we will be creating our own seascapes using painting and collage techniques. 

We visited the Immersion Room to be surrounded by a gallery of Rachel Bennett's artwork and looked closely at the colours used. Following this we returned to the classroom to experiment with colour mixing. We mixed blue and white, blue and yellow and blue and red to see what shades we could make!

In Science we have been learning about the seasons and we went outside to look for signs of Spring! We found blossom, buds and lots of insects.
