Here we can see some examples of Jackson Pollock's amazing art work and the artist himself in his New York Studio. As artists in Year 1 we have started our own Jackson Pollock style paintings and to give us more space for freedom of expression we took our art area outdoors! Mrs. Fleming bravely took on the challenge, armed with pots of coloured paints and wearing strong wellies and gowned up to the neck!!! So far the results have been wonderful. Here is a taster, with more to follow.

Our topic this term is,  Who am I? and as Geographers we studyed the local area including the roads, homes, shops, church and clinic. We then posted a letter to our home address at the post box outside One Stop convenience store. There were many opportunities for a photo shoot and an enjoyable walk was had by all. Back at school we have been studying local maps and searching for our school and homes on Google Earth.

During Poetry Week Year 1 thought of 'Pie Corbett' style actions to accompany the poem Monkey Puzzle by Julia Donaldson. It was great fun and very successful at helping us to remember it! Take a look at our photos!

Our class novel is Dogger by Shirley Hughes and one of our tasks is to talk about a favourite toy from home. In the story, Dave has a teddy called Dogger and it gets lost and this involves all sorts of feelings. We had some super discussions about the story and our own toys. This work supports the importance we place on 'Spoken Language'.
