We have been super busy in Year One Blue!
It’s hard to believe that our first term is coming to an end!
Year One is full of so many new and exciting learning opportunities. We are learning to have a go at writing on our own, read tricky words, count in lots of different ways, visit specialist teachers, work as a team as well as remembering to be a kind and caring friend to everyone. We know that we are all unique and will grow in many different ways this year!
We have spent time learning about the places and spaces around our community as well as the people and services that help to keep our community ticking. We worked with our friends from One Gold to create a Community Mural celebrating our knowledge.
Our Community Expo was a huge success! Thank you to our mums and dads who volunteered their time to come and share their occupations with us! We had a fabulous time! There may be a future hair dresser, teacher or police officer amongst us!
Lots of our activities encourage us to make our own choices and celebrate our own ideas and creativity. We have created so many lovely pieces of work from our family portraits to our pictures of extra special family members to paintings of what we would like to be when we grown up to help in our community! We love art!
We have enjoyed our Easter discussions focusing on the significance of Lent and the concept of New Life. We created amazing butterflies with string, black paint and water colours as well as some beautiful symbols of the Cross using natural and collage materials.
A huge thank you to all our families who celebrated our learning during our Open Night! We were very excited all day to show off some of our activities!
Despite having had a huge term…we can always make time for a tea party with our friends!
We wish all our families a safe and restful holiday!
See you in term two!
