Year One Remember

Last week, Year One really enjoyed taking part in our ‘We Will Remember’ project.  They began to develop their understanding of events happening in the past by talking about their own lives, and by looking at a range of old and new objects before finding out about how some children were evacuated, taking only a small suitcase of important items with them.  The children listed those items, as well as thinking about which objects would be most important to them.

The children also explored different painting tools and types of paper before using pictures of poppies to inspire paintings and collages, as well as selecting some wonderful descriptive language which was then used in acrostic poems.
