We're Special

We started our first topic 'We're Special' by being visited by the aliens from 'Here Come the Aliens' who have decided to come back to earth to learn all about the human race. We all took Boo Boo home to show him about where we live. We spent our first week thinking about our feelings with the help of the 'Mr Men'.  We thought about what makes us happy, grumpy and worried and practiced showing these emotions.
We then looked at how our bodies are similar and different to the aliens.  We labelled a body outline and used George, the school skeleton, and 'Funny Bones' to explore the parts and importance of and recreate the human skeleton.  We became artists and made a clay face with all the necessary features.
Also for the 'We're Special' topic, Mrs Taylor helped us understand the sense of hearing before we made our own musical instruments.  We explored the other senses too with food tasting, smelling and feeling games and I spy walks.
We thought about our own families and enjoyed sharing photographs of our families and friends and understanding the role undertaken by each family member.

Thank you ever so much for providing materials for our musical instruments and for sharing your family photos. The children really enjoyed their first topic in Year 1.

This half term we also had some special visitors.  The dentist came to explain what different types of food and drink do to our teeth and how we should look after them.  We also had a go at Judo!
