Year 1 - St John Bosco

Dulwich Picture Gallery

During this term we have been learning about the artist Joan Miro and the style of surrealism. We created paintings and sculptures based on the artwork of Joan Miro and heled our own art exhibition to raise funds for a trip to Dulwich gallery, so we could experience and appreciate many different styles of art. During our trip, we studied the different pieces on display and sketched our own replicas. Thank you to the parents whose generosity at the art exhibition made this trip possible.

Woodlands Farm

On Wednesday 4th December, St John Bosco went to Woodlands Farm so we could learn more about our Science topic (Animals including Humans). We started the day by going on a walk through the woods and we had to do lots of activities which involved using our senses. In the afternoon, we got a tour of the farm and even got to stroke some of the animals. We had a great day and especially loved jumping in the mud!

Animal Show

Paul Newman, from Ivydale Science and Technology Service in Peckham visited Year 1 children about his collection of animals – he has approximately 300! He brought a selection of bugs and reptiles and talked about their habitats, what they eat and their classification.

The children got the opportunity to hold a milk snake , a tarantula and giant millipedes and they had a brave attitude.

The children loved the show and asked and answered lots of questions.
