Come and share a book with your child in Year One
On Wednesday 18th June we visited Tamworth Castle. We found out about life in the past – the clothes, the food, the armour and the weapons that knights used. We even had a turn at being knights!
Find out more about Tamworth Castle and Warwick Castle at the following websites:
On Thursday 1C visited the Ecopark as we began our new topic ‘Plants and Trees’. When we were there we looked for lots of different types of plants, using a chart to help us try to identify them. We also drew some of the leaves and flowers that we came across.
Can you recognise the plants which these leaves came from?

This week in 1C we have been finding out about the work of the artist Jackson Pollock. We have read his autobiography and we have talked about some of his paintings. We have created paintings by rolling marbles through paint. We have layered paper over balloons to create papier-mache. We have layered different materials to create collages.

Today we all went to the farm to find out about different animals. We fed and touched some of the animals. Which animals did we see? What food do they eat? What are their bodies covered with? Which ones provide us with eggs, milk and wool?
Sometimes it was a bit smelly but we found out lots of information and had lots of fun!
