Learning about the aquatic creatures

Year 1 have been reading “One Tiny Turtle”. They have role-played a turtle’s life and recorded it in a diary, studied how to look after turtles and keep oceans clean and created a turtle out of recycling plastic.

The journey under the oceans of the world began with adjective building and sharing lots of ocean stories. Some fabulous art work has been started too.

We were on an "Arctic Adventure". The children started their new topic by role playing an adventure to the Arctic. In their Art lesson, they created an Arctic scene using paints and tissue paper. They had fun!
