Year 1 - Bengal Tiger class
This year, all classes at Holy Trinity are named after an endangered animal. Year One have chosen Bengal Tigers and will be learning lots of facts about tigers and what it means to be endangered. It also links nicely to a class text later in the year – the Tiger Who Came to Tea! Year One have learnt that each tiger has a completely different patterned fur to the next so decided that tigers are just like us- all different! We have also been learning lots about where Bengal tigers come from-India- and how it is very different to where we live. Year One have also adopted their very own tiger from WWF to help us learn about conservation and how we can help the tigers.
IPC and STEM
Our new IPC topic is “Flowers and Insects”, which compliments our Science topic of “Plants”. In IPC, we will be learning about the weather and climatic conditions in particular localities and how they affect the environment and wildlife living there, to be able to use secondary sources to obtain simple geographical information and to how to use maps at a variety of scales to locate the position and simple geographical features of the countries we encounter during are learning about flowers and insets who live there. In Science we will be learning to identify and name a variety of common wild and garden plants, including deciduous and evergreen trees and to identify and describe the basic structure of a variety of common flowering plants, including trees. We will be planting our own plants to observe and doing some different experiments! We will be visiting Bruce Castle to do a nature trail which should let us put our new knowledge into action!
