Happy New Year! Let's make it a good one!
Welcome back Year One! We hope you have had a lovely Christmas and have made some wonderful memories with your families. We can't wait to hear about what you have been up to :)
Our topic this half is 'Under the Sea', during this topic we will be focusing on the story 'Dear Greenpeace'. A story about a little girl who is worried that the whale living in her pond is unhappy, Emily writes to Greenpeace, who insists that it is impossible for a whale to live in a pond. Emily continues to seek the best course of action for her beloved whale, finally setting him free in one of the worlds oceans.
Throughout this topic, we will be exploring the physical and human features found in the world around us, exploring how we can protect our oceans from the materials that end up in them. We will also be learning how to use maps, atlases and globes to identify the 5 oceans and 7 continents that make up our world.
So Year One, get your atlas and compass at the ready as we begin our under water adventure!
Love Mrs Collins and Mrs Brookes x
