Miss Moscatiello Year 1 - Finches

Welcome to the Finches blog. 


Hello and welcome to our class blog. 

Our teacher is Miss Moscatiello and our teaching assistant is Mrs Stafford.


Our topic this term is...


Term 5 - Into the woods


If you go down to the woods today you're sure of a BIG surprise!


Foxes and badgers, voles and mice, beady-eyed owls in the swaying tree tops.  Beneath the leaves are tiny footprints.... animal or imp?  You decide!


Deciduous or evergreen?  What can you find?  Can you match a leaf to its tree?  Can you match a petal to its flower?


We are excited to be having outdoor learning every Friday this term. Let's build a den, stick by stick and branch by branch, or we could make a teeny tiny home for a woodland fairy.


This topic will give the children the opportunity to explore and learn in the outside environment including our nature area. Children will be learning about different plants that you could find in a wood. In Science we will be sorting and looking at the different parts of plants. We will be also growing our own plants.


English- Children will be reading the traditional tale 'Little Red Riding Hood'. We will be sequencing and writing the story. Using the popular children's story The Gruffalo, the children will be writing character and setting descriptions.


Maths - We will take our first look at multiplication, division and fractions this term.



Outdoor learning week 1

This week, we have had our first session of outdoor learning...

We had so much fun exploring the nature area and enjoyed being outside all afternoon!

We listened to stories, created faces from the story from outdoor materials and made our very own clay tree troll! We can't wait to share what we get up to next week so keep checking back for updates...
