During the first term in Year 1 we will be learning about materials through our enquiry “What materials do the three little pigs need to build a house?” and we will begin to observe the weather around us. We will also spend some time delving into our past and looking at famous people from the past and why they were famous. We are very fortunate to have Ashleigh Ross to come and teach dance to us on a Friday afternoon for the term and will look forward to learning from her. Lastly, we will be exploring some of the key values in Christian’s lives and investigating the Escomb church.

Next Helen showed us how to put our friends and family into the recovery position.
Lastly, Helen very kindly demonstrated what to do it we fell over, had a nose bleed or needed an icepack!

Article 6: You have the right to be alive.
We spoke about how everyone has the right to be alive. Even a gingerbread man. We thought about making gingerbread men and discussed what they might do.
We had to weigh out the ingredients, mix it together. Before this we had wash our hands to make sure we don’t spread germs.
We then decorated them to how ever we needed or wanted as we have the choice.
Run, Run as fast as you can!
Article 35: No one is allowed to kidnap you or sell you.
Oh no! Miss Roe’s gingerbread man had gone missing! We became detectives and searched for it!
We hunted for clues and we discussed how we are not allowed to be kidnapped as it is wrong! We found a hook, a foot and a tentacle! We are searching for the thief!

Article 24: You have the right to nutritious food.
We have recently changed the way we do snack in Year 1. We now have to pay for our snack. We have to pay using our number bonds to 10. Mr Cox was our shop keeper would tell us a number to make. We used the numicon to solve the problem. We spoke about where the fruit we get comes from, who pays for it and why we need it.
We have learned all about Rosa Parks. We learned how she stood up by sitting down! We used role play to experience it first-hand. We talked about our feelings and why it was not okay or fair. We then spoke about what the impact of this was.
Article 19: You have the right to be protected from being hurt in body or mind.
Article 2: ALL CHILDREN have these rights no matter their differences.
Sharing our learning
Year 6 children shared their knowledge of slavery with Year 1. Year 1 children taught Year 6 everything they had learned about Rosa Parks and equality.
They then joined together and protested against slavery.
We have a right to be protected from type of exploitation. (Article 36)
