Year 1 have recently enjoyed a cold walk around a local park to explore seasonal changes. The children used a range of senses to observe natural features and changes, listened carefully for common sounds and explored how the features felt; recording their findings in a table. All the children engaged in discussions about their experiences at the park and wrote sentences about their observations. This experience enabled the children to list nouns, adjectives and verbs related to the park during the winter and have used these words to create poems. The visit was a language rich experience that has enthused the children in learning about winter as well as inspiring them to draw and paint wintery pictures.
We would like to thank so many parents for accompanying us on our walk.
