Beech - KS1 Year 1

Pupils organising coloured toysWelcome to Year 1

Welcome to Beech class, Year 1 at Coppice Valley Primary.

We have a fabulous half term ahead, heading back in time in Year 1.  Our term will centre around becoming history detectives and looking at toys. The children will apply their scientific knowledge by looking at the materials toys are made of as well as historical sources and evidence.  We will be practicing our writing skills by writing a setting description around our wonderful core text 'Lost in the toy museum' by David Lucas. We will develop our creative skills in Design Technolgy by making a Jack in the box, whilst learning about levers. We will continue to look at seasonal changes with a scientific eye recording our findings and explore moving robots in computing. .  

Beech class will also be able to develop their own learning through play, experiments, music, and discussion. Creativity will be a big part of our learning, continuing to look at collage techniques and how we can use recycled materials in our artwork, which also supports our Coppice 50 aims of making our school more environmentally friendly as well as raising money for a charity this half term. A big part of everyday will be around phonics, writing and maths mastery with plenty of time to read and use our amazing outdoor space for practical learning. We will be kind, curious and brave; always aiming high and working hard.
