Welcome to Year 1

Hawthorn Class Blog

This week, our guided reading has been about the story Giraffes Can't Dance. We learnt about Gerald who had a problem. He was bad at dancing but worked really hard and kept going and managed to dance in the end. He was showing this term's school value which is resilience. We have been thinking about how we can be resilient. 

We have continued our learning about toys and our non-fiction books are very nearly finished! We learnt about action figures and then we got to bring in our favourite toy from home. We wrote the final page of our book about them.

We have been doing more work on our class artist Andy Warhol and are making our own pop art pictures on our favourite toys.

In English, We have been learning about dollies and we were looking at the different materials they were made out of. We loved learning that dolls are over one thousand years old. We also got to bring in our own teddies from home. We loved talking to our friends about our teddies and we wrote down information sentences about our toys. We learnt that teddy bears were first made in 1903 by Teddy Roosevelt and they even had wood shavings inside them.


In math, we have been learning addition. We got to write our number sentences and we use counters and number lines to find the answer.


In the afternoons we have started our Art lessons. We have looked at the artist Andy Warhol and his pop art.  We drew pictures based on pop art by drawing round our hands and painting them in bright colours.‚Äč
