Using percussion instruments we made pieces of music to imitate the characteristics of the different dinosaurs we have learnt about. For example fast and loud for a Tyrannasaurus Rex on a hunt and slow and peaceful for a Brachiosaurus grazing.
We took a trip to Paradise Wildlife Park in Broxbourne to see and learn more about the animals we have been studying in our Science lessons. We were challenged to find a mammal, bird, fish, reptile and amphibian.

We will be learning about the incredible powers and skills they possess and how everyday superheroes will come and rescue us if we need help.
In our RE we have been looking at people who are important to us and people who are important in different religions. We learnt the story of Rama and Sita and how they followed lamps to find their way home. This is know known as the festival 'Diwali'. In our art lessons we have been creating our own rangoli patterns and have painted them on to clay lamps we have designed and made.
Our first topic of Year 1 is all about The Enchanted Woodland! Learning about the animals and plants which live and grow there and the mythical creatures and beings we might discover.

In our RE lessons we have been looking at people who are important to us and people who are important in different religions. Whilst learning about Hinduism and the story of Rama and Sita, Year 1 have made their own lamps to celebrate Diwali.
