Meonstoke CE Infant School

Nurture, Grow, Flourish

Year 1


Year 1 - Autumn 1 2021

This half term we are learning about Harvest.

We have used The Gigantic Turnip and Oliver's Vegetables to write speech bubbles and a letter using the personal pronoun "I".

We enjoyed learning the songs Mary Mary (in a round) and The Gigantic Turnip (altered to match our text). We also learned the poem "How does your garden grow" and The Little Red Hen Rap.

In Geography we found Mr Men hiding on human and physical features around the school grounds and we used our knowledge to find more features on a walk to the church. We made a list of what this told us about how people spend their time in Meonstoke.

In RE we have learned about celebrations in our own lives and linked this to Harvest and creation.

In PSHE we have been learning about our relationships and how to manage our feelings.

In science we have learned what the different parts of a plant do and which parts we eat. We have started to think about flowers making seeds and fruits to make new plants.

In maths we have been focussing on numbers to 20 and have learned about parts and wholes.
