We are very much looking forward to our first topic which will be Heroes. We will explore many types of heroes, including Superheroes, people who help us and significant individuals, which will incorporate many areas of the curriculum such as History, Geography, Music and Art.
Our classroom environment offers continuous learning opportunities during the day through play. We utilise the areas of construction, small world, investigation, maths, creative and the message centre every day to consolidate learning, develop new skills and to challenge ourselves. We work with a purpose at all times in Year 1, persevere when trying something new and strive to do our best. We always celebrate our achievements with each other through show and tell opportunities.
We are fortunate to have an outdoor area in Year 1 which we share with Owl class. Here, we can use our imagination in the mud kitchen, hunt for signs of nature in our flower beds and bug hotel, act out our ideas in the deconstructed role play area as well as developing our gardening skills.
Below are a few photos of the different areas of the environment in Pelicans for you to enjoy!
