Chestnut Class - Year 1

Paws Claws and Whiskers! 

Big cats, small rats, tiny fleas and buzzing bees! This half term, we’re going to discover that animals come in all shapes and sizes! Meeting an animal expert will allow us to ask and answer questions, share information about the pets we have at home and write animal information booklets. We’ll study animal artwork, draw detailed animal pictures to capture their special features and make collages and prints. Famous animal fables  and a Tiger who likes Tea will make us laugh, and we will have fun reading them aloud. We’ll spot similarities and differences between animals, look at different habitats around the world and investigate camouflage. Designing a zoo is even on the agenda! 

As well as our topic work we are focusing on our early reading skills.

LOOKING AT THE PICTURES. POINTING TO THE WORDS. SOUNDING OUT THE WORDS.
