During the Summer term we will be exploring some ways that flowers are portrayed in art.  We will be learning about the work of a range of artists, focusing on Franz Bauer, Claude Monet and Takashi Murakami. Children will use a range of materials and techniques to creatively  design and develop their own work.

For their daily bag, we politely request that children bring in a flat book bag rather than a rucksack as the space in the cloakroom is limited.
Pie Corbett’s Reading Spine is a core of books that create a living library inside a child’s mind. It is a store of classics and essential reads that help children engage at a deeper level and enter the world of the story.  Please follow the links below for the reading spines for each year group.
The Year 1 children in Haddon Class also take part in daily phonics sessions. We follow the 'Little Wandle' program to enable the children to learn their letters and sounds. More information for parents can be found here.
In PSHE, the children have thought about how they should treat their VIPs. As part of this, they have tested and evaluated their own collaboration skills, whilst completing tangram challenges.
Who has been stealing the milk? An unknown local animal has been stealing milk from outside houses!  In order to solve the crime, we have used our skills to classify animals, investigate (fake) faeces and analyse footprints. 
What an amazing visit from Jungle Jo!  The children learned even more about how we can classify animals whilst getting close to a selection of Jungle Jo's animals, including a tree frog and a hissing cockroach.
