Welcome back Year 1!     

We hope you had a great break and have maintained a healthy lifestyle whilst enjoying the sunshine! We're very excited about this term as it's packed with fun learning.

 

Our imaginative topic for the term is called Rio de Vida.

Topic Rationale:  “Developing International Awareness” 

Principle: Our World 

UNCRC Right: Article 22: The Rights of Refugee Children 

 

Come on... Get your dancing feet, step to the samba beat. Shake it, shimmy, hands in the air, wave your flags in the cool night air. Come join the party down in Rio.

 

Let's go down to ‘Rio’ where football is king and meet magical creatures from Brazil’s myths and legends. Would you like to live in Brazil? How might it be like to live there? Can you locate Brazil and its capital city Brasilia on a world map? This term, you'll learn about this beautiful country and talk about its human features. You'll even go further to compare Rio and the UK where you'll discuss the similarities and differences. 

 

You'll also read lots of books based on cultures around the world which will open your mind about different cultures and give you a better understanding of the world around you.

 

Bem-vindo ao Brasil crianças!.......Welcome to Brazil children!

A message from your Teachers

 

Dear Children,laugh

 

Well done for your incredible effort towards your learning this term. We're very impressed with how you've maintained a routine and attempted all daily tasks set by your teachers.

 

We'll also like you to say a BIG THANK you to your family for the great support they've given you throughout your learning. 

They are AMAZING!

 

To keep you prepared for the new term, we've prepared fun activities (see below) for you to complete during the half-term and we'll encourage you to try your best with all activities.

 

Remember the saying, 'all work and no play makes you a dull child!' So, as you strive hard to complete your learning, try  to get some rest and recharge your batteries for your final term in Year 1. 

Also, eat healthy foods, exercise, drink lots of water and most of all step outside and enjoy the sunshine with your family. 

 

Lots of love,

Year 1 Teamheart

Science investigation on materials- which material is best suited to make a superhero cape?

Still image for this video
Eshaal used different materials such as plastic, paper and fabric to make superhero capes. To find out which material is suitable for the best cape, she tested her capes by flying them.
Eshaal said 'I found out that plastic material is best suited to make a superhero cape because it flows when I run and it's light.'
