Who you gonna call?

Who you gonna call

Year 1 have got off to a great start with our new topic, ‘Who You Gonna Call?’

We’ve been learning all about ourselves, our body and how to stay safe and healthy. We launched the topic with a visit from Nurse Julie – she came into school and showed us lots of interesting equipment that she uses in her job, such as a stethoscope and thermometer; she also showed us how to put on a bandage! We had prepared lots of questions for Nurse Julie and she was very impressed with them!

As part of the Science curriculum we have been learning about our 5 senses. Audrey, our school cook, kindly invited us to the kitchen to learn about how she prepares tasty and healthy meals for everyone. We had a tour of the kitchen and she showed us all the equipment she uses.

We’ve visited Grangetown Shops to buy food for us to taste in class and to describe using our senses. We really enjoyed walking to the shops and the shop assistant very kindly allowed us to scan our own items and put the money in the till!

All of these visits and visitors have given the children real-life contexts upon which to base their writing and we have so much more coming up before half term. Watch this space!
