Learning and News

This half term our topic is 'What was it like when our grandparents were young?' We will be looking at what life was like in the past and how it differs from today. There are some useful websites on our resources page if you want to get a head start on your learning.

w/c 9.3.20 - This week in science, we found out that the tallest man in the world is Sultan Kosen and he is 251cm tall. We decided to do an investigation into who was the tallest in our class. The children made predictions and then we got ourselves in height order.As predicted,Ethan was the tallest in our class at 129cm tall.

W/C 2.5.20 This morning we went to visit Dippy the dinosaur. We learnt so many interesting facts, did you know that Dippy had 292 bone! What a great day!

W/C 10.2.20 - We have been experimenting with our voices and percussion instruments to create musical seascapes. Can you guess which elements we all represent?

At last our papier mache have dried, so we are able to paint them. Can you guess the characters we created?

Today in History we looked at what our grandparents would have spent their pocket money on. We explored old toys, money and tasted sweets that would have been available in the 1950's and 1960's. The most popular sweets in class 4 were the Jazzles.

WC 3.2.20 - Today, we got our fingers very sticky making papier mache faces. We had fun working out how to create the facial features, so they were 3D. We are looking forward to painting them next week!

Today we followed a set of instructions to make cocktails. Tomorrow we will be writing our own set of instructions.

The Mosque - This week our classroom changed into a mosque, we had to remove our shoes and some girls put scarves on to cover their heads. We went into the classroom to find artefacts and pictures of items you might find in a mosque. We then guessed what they might be used for and later found out what they were.

20.1.20 - Today we took part in a Chinese dance workshop to celebrate Chinese New Year. We used dragons, umbrellas and ribbons and learnt some traditional Chinese dance moves.It was great fun, take a look!

13/1/20 On Wednesday Year 1 went to visit St John's church. We identified the key features of the church through an I spy game and talked about what they were used for and why the church is sacred to Christians.

W/C 9.12.19 - This week had some eggs delivered! They were very fragile and came from lots of different animals, including the odd egg out of our story this week. We generated lots of adjectives to describe the different eggs and guessed which animal had laid them.

W/C 2.12.19 At last it was time to make our delicious kebabs! We used the skills practised last week to peel and cut the fruit into chunks, ready for sliding onto the skewers. We had a wonderful time munching and crunching our finished products! What an end to a perfect day!

What a lovely time we had at the Year 1 Christmas Craft. Thank you to everyone that attended, we hope you enjoyed it!

w/c 25.11.19 - Today we had a visit from Write Man, he came to our school to give us a writing mission. In year 1 our mission is to write list sentences using interesting adjectives and the use of commas. We are looking forward to completing this challenge and wait for our next one! WRITE ON!!!

W/C 18.11.19 This week we have been practising our map reading skills. We followed a map of the outside area to find given clues which gave us answers to questions on our worksheet.

We have had fun investigating some of the properties of 3D shapes. We drew round them to discover the shapes of their faces. The trickiest one was the cylinder, as it kept rolling off the table!

We have been practising our cutting, grating and peeling skills, ready for making our fruit kebabs. Maybe we could help to prepare food at home and practise our skills some more!

W/C 11.11.19 We have been thinking about the message of friendship during Anti - Bullying week. We have written messages to our friends to explain how we can show friendship at school.

We thought carefully about how we can lift others up when they are down. We hope our kites will send those messages high and lift up our spirits.

We also created a 'paper chain of kindness'. We drew someone's name out of a hat and wrote them a special message. We turned our messages into a paper chain to represent our friendship.

W/C 11.11.19 We have been food tasting, ready for deciding on the recipe for our fruit kebabs. We found out that some of the fruits were delicious, but others were not to our liking at all! What messages do our faces tell you?

w/c 11.11.19 - This week, in RE, we read the story of the birth of Jesus. We then made our own stable to re-tell the Christmas story.

W/C 4.11.19 We have been learning the difference between beat and rhythm. We played the beat of the music on claves and made rhythmic machine sounds using our voices.

W/C 28.10.19 This week we looked at our local area, identified places we knew and matched them up to their labels. We then mapped out our journey to school.

W/C 14.10.19

In art, we completed  our landscapes with silhouettes.  We then took a photograph of them using an iPad. We edited the photographs using the filter buttons. Some of us we fascinated to see our colourful landscapes in black and white!

W/C 7.10.19 

Learning Together.

This week our mums, dads and grandmas came to school to work with us. Guy Fawkes had sent us a video message asking us to join him in his plot to blow up the houses of parliament. We took up our quills and wrote letters back telling him whether or not we would be joining him!

This week in History, we made our own presentations about The Gunpowder Plot. We worked in groups to write down everything we know and next week we will present our information to the rest of the class.

W/C 30.9.19 - In PSHCE we have been learning about how to stay healthy. This week we looked at the importance of keeping well by learning to dispose of germs by being hygienic. We looked at the NHS 'Catch it! Bin it! Kill it!' poster and then created our own for the school.

In art we have been practising our colour mixing skills to paint a background for our landscapes. I wonder, can you guess where in the world our landscapes are? Have a look next week to find out as we complete them!
W/C 23.9.19 

This week in science we made shakers using products that made different sounds. We filled our cup with rice, spaghetti or quinoa and covered it with cellophane to create a musical instrument.

We have continued to experiment mixing paint to see how we can produce different colours. Today, we learnt all about 'tints' and 'shades'.

W/C 16.9.19 - Today Freddie Fit came to visit. We did aerobics, exercise and talked about how to keep our bodies fit and healthy. Take a look at what we did!
