  Year 1 Curriculum Plan

 1S Class Highlights

1S have had an
amazing Spring term, filled with Art, Science and Music!

 

Tomorrow’s World Day

 

We have loved
our whole school topic, Tomorrow’s World, and enjoyed a range of activities on
Tomorrow’s World Day where we were inventors for the day. We had a carousel of
different activities that used different skills; making a foil bridge strong
enough to hold a toy, blowing bubbles with a straw, using lolly sticks and
playdough to create 3D shapes, using paper, glue and a paper plate to create a
marble maze and using water, oil and salt to create a lava lamp.

“I loved
playing on my marble maze. It was so fun!” said Maiwand.

“The bubbles in
the lava lamp were fun to watch. We used salt to make the bubbles,” said Satya.

 

It was a
brilliant day!

 

Celebrating Holi

 

In RE this
term, we have been learning about the Hindu festival Holi. We learnt about how
Hindus celebrate and why. Part of their celebrations include throwing coloured
paint at each other and singing and dancing. 1S loved this idea! We went
outside and threw coloured paint onto paper.

“It was so cool
throwing paint everywhere!” said Lennon.

“We made a big
mess on the paper!” said Angel.

 

Enfield Partnership Festival

 

Year 1 were
invited to join Enfield Music Service’s Partnership Festival this term. We
visited Firs Farm School where we met with children from Firs Farm, Galliard
and Meridan Angel schools. We sang a range of songs together and each school
sang their own additional song to the other schools. Highfield sang ‘Tomorrow’
from the film ‘Annie’ and the children’s singing sounded beautiful! We all had
a wonderful time singing and dancing.

“My favourite
song is ‘Tomorrow’ because I liked doing the sign language,” said Oliwier.

“My favourite
song is ‘The Penguin Song’ because the actions are funny,” said Tzoana.

 

 

1S can’t wait
to see what the Summer term brings!
