Welcome to Neverland Class
We are Neverland Class, a class of 28 marvellous, curious and sociable Year 1 learners who are eager to learn. Our teacher is Miss Allison and we are fortunate to have Miss Stephen and Mrs Driver as our teaching assistants. In our class, we strive for excellence by being inquisitive through our collaborative, resourceful and resilient work ethic. This term our topic is ‘Way Down Under’. Throughout this topic the children will explore Australia, compare our home to places found down under, learn about the animal groups and have plenty of opportunities to use their imagination and creativity.
What are we learning about this term?
This term our topic is ‘Way Down Under’. Throughout this topic the children will explore Australia, compare it to Norfolk and have plenty of opportunities to use their imagination and creativity.
We will be looking closely at how being part of a culture contributes to feelings of happiness, tradition and belonging. To achieve this, we will compare Australia and Norfolk, by looking at the weather in both locations, changes which occur and how both appear visually through a camera.
Our History lessons will be filled with exploration about life in Australia before the British settlers arrived, who arrived as part of the British settlers and how these individuals differed from the people who already had a home there.
In Art and Design, we shall be exploring and creating traditional aboriginal art. We will be focusing on the primary and secondary colours, using three different printing techniques (stamping, rubbing and pressing) and create our own sculptures.
In Music, we will learn that composing means inventing a new piece of music and within this, what tempo and rhythm is. As we are exploring Australia, we will learn more about wind instruments, such as the didgeridoo, gum leaf and bullroarer.
We can't wait for our brains to grow bigger from all of the new information we shall be learning!
I love this class. We learn some really fun and exciting things. My favourite topic this year was the Stone Age. We learnt about where our ancestors came from.
I love maths. This year I feel like I have been really challenged. I get to complete extra work which is really tricky. I use my JONK skills to help me.
I have loved learning in this class. The teachers and really kind and supportive.
