Reception and Year 1 - Mrs Banfield

Welcome to Reception & Year 1
Mrs Banfield

This Autumn Term our topic is called...

Looking After Ourselves!



In this topic, children will learn about their bodies and how to keep them healthy.  We are going to tantalise our taste bubs with the scrumptious fruit kebabs we have created, inspired by ‘Oliver’s Fruit Salad’.

We will explore skeletons from the amusing adventures of the ‘Funny Bones’ characters and their dog and cannot wait to use our voices in a dramatic style.


Just wait until you see us in a new light, thanks to our cubist inspired art combining paint work and digital photography.  Thank you for the inspiration Picasso!


Guatemala is only an ocean away and we hope to find many similarities and differences between this contrasting locality. Don’t worry, be happy! Well, we certainly will be after we have made our own puppets inspired by the Guatemalan Worry Dolls!


We love our families and will be finding out about our family trees and discussing them with our new friends, once we have created an artistic tree, using our colour mixing skills.
