• On the move - year 1 -

Autumn 2

This half term our topic is ‘On the Move.’ Click on the link to our Topic Letter to see what we have been learning.

The children were exploring and reading a variety of texts related to our topic. We also created topic themed writing areas in our classrooms, where the children had the opportunity to write in their chosen genre about transport. The children became transport historians and have looked at how transport and technology has changed over time. They were able to order transport chronologically on a timeline and make comparisons with transport today.  Using their artistic skills the children created some pencil sketches of transport. They then developed this further by using charcoal for shading and depth.

In our English sessions we have looked at a number of stories related to transport. First, we learnt a cumulative tale developing our knowledge of verbs and nouns. We then looked at recounts based on our trip to Brooklands museum.
