Trip to the CLC

As part of our computing curriculum, Year 1  spent the day at the CLC. The children created animated versions of traditional tales using Purple Mash. In the afternoon, they played problem solving games on Busy Things.

Welcome back!

The children in Year 1 have been investigating how we can use our senses to find out about the world around us. They were using the Hawley Habits of curiosity and collaboration.

London Skyline

The children in Year 1 looked at pictures of the London skyline and drew the shapes that they could see. Then they looked at paintings by Lancelot Ribeiro and painted their pictures in a similar style. They filled in the shapes with different colours and used black paint to outline.        

Our Local Area

The children in Year 1 have been learning about our local area. We went for a walk and drew some old and new houses. Back at school we made a large map of where we had walked and stuck on photos of the places we had passed. We looked more closely at photos of the houses next to the canal and drew them in more detail. After that, we looked at paintings by the artist Friedensreich Hundertwasser and painted our pictures in this style.
