Welcome to Year 1. We have had an exciting start to the year, exploring all things italian with our Italy topic. We have made some super pasta paintings of famous landmarks and have been busy serving up pizzas in our Sulby Pizzeria role play area. We had great fun in our italian tasting session - focaccia and grissini were a big favourite! Did you know the national animal of Italy is an Apennine Wolf? We had great fun producing our wolf puppets and our collage canvas. Our maths challenge has been to count, order and sort numbers up to 10 - we love developing our number skills! Recently, we read a story about a mouse called Marcello, who attended a masquerade ball in Venice. So... we made our own masks, learned a dance and performed a masquerade in our PE lesson! We can't wait to have more year 1 learning adventures with our new topic, Traditional Tales.
