Welcome to Year 1!
|Rachael Miles||Kiran Khan||Sarah Rahim|
As we come to the end of our learning journey we have put together a showcase of our response to the secret History mission set by Ms Ilic, Miss Linton-Marshall, Ms Elmi and Ms Carty
As part of our music learning this half term, the children have learnt a song linked to London. Take a look at our performance videos below.
London: A Place for Me!
This half term our Learning Journey will focus on the diverse city of London in which we live. The history of London, the capital city of England and the United Kingdom, extends over 2000 years. In that time, it has become one of the world's most significant financial and cultural capital cities having withstood plague, devastating fire, civil war and much more.
Over the next 6 weeks we will focus on both the geographical and historical aspect looking back to the past and linking our previous learning to the city of London and how it has impacted us today.
As part of our learning we will use the book ‘The Story of London’ to develop our chronological understanding of the history of London and many of the key events that have shaped its existence. Click on the PDF below to enjoy this book from home
Hidden Histories in Britain
During the History Learning Journey, children will explore and uncover the real, rich history our children deserve to learn. They will consider the forgotten stories of men, women and children in history. They will explore what Stuart London was like for all members of society at those times as well as explore the events that led to The Great Fire of London. They will study what it was like to be a child in these times. The children will debate whether the fire was preventable and make links between the past and present including how the rebuilding of London took place.
For more information, please see the Learning Journey Letter and Knowledge Organiser below.
Celebrating our Learning!
During this History Learning Journey, children have investigated and interpreted the past. Children have learnt about key Black British men and women and their contributions to Britain. They have explored the features of the past, including ideas, beliefs, attitudes and experiences of men, women and children during the period of time they lived. Children have been able to understand how and why the significant person they studied has impacted their lives today.
Every class has been taking part in our 'Poetry Slam' competition, with learning inspired by a significant black poet. The children chose and voted for a winning poem, learnt it as a class and performed it for you to watch at home!
As a year group, the children have created a news broadcast to showcase the historical learning over the last 5 weeks.
Welcome to Year 1! We have created a short information presentation for our Year 1 families to watch at home. This includes information on uniform, daily routines, home learning and blended (virtual) learning. If you have any other questions, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
