This week in year 1 is culture week. We have been listening to different stories from the bible and learning about the important messages that come from the stories. We have enjoyed the story of Noah's Ark. We have created artwork to retell the story and also used ICT. We have even built our very own ark's in the construction. We have identified some important parts of the story and written super sentences to retell these.
We have been learning about the 4 countries in the UK and have used Mr Bee to help us locate the countries. We have navigated Mr Bee from where we live in England up to Scotland, down to Wales and across to Ireland. We had to be very clear with our instructions!
This week we have had a great time closely observing autumn leaves to sketch them in detail. We had to look closely at the features of the different leaves to show this in our artwork, using sketching pencils and colour. We also used printing in different ways, to represent impressionist artwork, and create autumn trees through a range of printing methods.
