Termly Curriculum Letters

Year 1 2016



Before we started our circus unit, we created posters about what we know about the circus so far. Information about tightrope walkers, fire breathers, ring masters, animals, acrobats, clowns and circus tents.

Throughout the unit we also created posters on the 5 senses. What we can smell, see, touch, hear and taste.

Here are our clown masks we created using paper plates, paint, crate paper, pom poms and coloured paper.

Religious Education

During our baptism unit we learnt what it means to be baptised and how people are baptised. These are our baptism candles that we designed.


Nativity Play

Year 1 and 2 Christmas disco.

Religious Education

In RE we are learning about the Advent wreath. We know there are 5 candles on the Advent wreath, Hope, Peace, Love, joy and Christ. But on our candle we only have the very last candle you light, Christ.

During our Time Travellers unit, we travelled all the way back in time to see Queen Elizabeths coronation. We even watched real footage that was taken back in 1953.



We have travelled back in time to 1840 for the signing of The Treaty of Waitangi on February 6th. This is a very important document between New Zealand and United Kingdom. With the hope it would bring peace between the two countries. We created our own class treaty as a set of rules on how we should be behaving and helping each other.
