Y1 Showstopper 22.11.19

This half term Year 1 have been doing RE for the first time. We have been learning about Christians and what they believe in, as well as discussing some of our own ideas about God. We looked at some artwork that some Christian people have drawn to show their beliefs about God – and then we did our own.

Holly, Harvey and Brody produced some lovely pieces which I have decided to share:

In their English lessons, Year 1 have been learning the story of The Gingerbread Man. Once the children knew and could tell the story really well, they used the structure of the story to invent their own version of the tale.

Joe Joe changed the characters and used a ‘mountain planner’ format to plan the sequence of his story, and then drew a story map to visualise the events of the story, which he will use next week to write the story out in full.
