Welcome to Year 1!
Summer Term - Toys
In Summer term we are looking at history. We are using toys to help us look at the past, present and future. 
We will be visiting a toy museum, playing games from when our parents were young and performing a musical! 
Today Year 1 visited the Young V&A (Museum of Childhood) in Bethnal Green. 
They had a great time exploring toys from the past and playing games from the past too! 
We love to play, so this was the ideal place for Year 1 to spend a whole day playing! 
Thank you to the wonderful parents that attended with us too, we had a fabulous time. 
Games from the 'olden days'
Today we had a great time exploring games that our parents may have played when they were younger! Some of these games are still enjoyed today by children all over the world. The children were excited to know that we also played these games in New Zealand! 
We had a games carousel including; Duck, duck, goose, hopscotch, skipping whilst singing Teddy Bear Teddy Bear and also stuck in the mud. We talked about many other games that may have been played in the past and we related these to ones we still enjoy today. 
Check out some photos below of our fun games afternoon. 
Autumn Term
In Autumn Term we are looking at our local area in a 6 week Geography unit. We are mapping our school, our houses in the community and what other places are in our local area. We will be going on a local walk before looking at important places in Hackney. 
In the second half of the Autumn Term we are looking at where is colder than Hackney. We will be comparing cold, hot and temperate climates and looking at seasonal changes in different areas of the world. We will also be looking at the different Poles on a globe. 
Keep your eyes on the website for any pictures of things we get up to.  
Year 1 enjoyed making a 3D map of our school in class. We went around and looked at all the rooms and spaces that our building has, before making it come to life. We had a great time and enjoyed thinking about where stairs would be and also the lift!
Year 1 loved going on their local walk around Hackney. We looked at the places that we have in our local area. We saw restaurants, churches, Mosques and more.
