Welcome to Year 1 – Croeso i’r Blwyddyn Un
Our topic for this term is ‘Memory Box’
Children will learn about changes over time, family and community. This topic develops children’s knowledge and appreciation of local history, special memories, customs and traditions, and growing up.
Can you remember being small? Being a baby and learning to crawl? Do you recall a favourite toy, maybe a teddy bear or a favourite book? Look back at family photos of special occasions, perhaps holiday snapshots or a birthday or two. Remember a wedding or a christening and find a funny photo of your parents when they were young. Learn how to write a diary of days gone by and find out about the days before you were born: it’s called history and it’s all about the past. Then make a special box, a memory box, to keep special things safe. In years to come, you can revisit them and remember how you looked when you were young. Memories are special. Let’s make some more.
Our RE topic is Advent/Christmas- Loving
Gifts, given and received, are a sign and expression of love. Advent is a time when we appreciate the love in our lives and prepare to celebrate love becoming a reality in the person of Jesus. Christians at Christmas celebrate the gift of Jesus, given by God as a sign and expression of God’s love. Giving and receiving reflects the truth that all life is given by God and life is given meaning through the gift of Jesus.
