Measurement

This week in Year One, we have been focusing on measurement. We have been using various resources to measure and compare length and height. We have also been measuring outside! We used metre sticks to measure a 10m track and then timed each other running the track.

Mark Making Madness

Today in Nursery we have been super busy!

Whilst listening to classical music we drew on a large piece of paper how it made us feel. We talked to our friends if the music made us feel sad, happy or even excited.

We also talked about what colour crayon we would like and also how we should be holding it.

After we had drawn what the music made us feel we had to use our listening ears to listen to the instructions Miss Langford gave us!

We drew big circles and zigzag lines.

 

Year One’s New Topic: Paws, Claws, Fins and Fingers

Yesterday, we spent the afternoon exploring our new topic which is all about animals. We discussed pets that we had and created bar charts to reflect pets in Year One. Those of us with pets completed a descriptive piece of writing about them. We also discussed what we would like to learn in the new topic and what we already know about animals. Some of us also had a go at sorting animals into groups.

Mocktail Making

Wow- we had a super last afternoon of the half term. We learned all about ratio and proportion and then put our skills to the test to make mocktails. We were given 4 different juices to choose from and had to measure then find the percentage, fraction and then the ratio. We finally got to test our new creations.. Some of us enjoyed and some didn’t.

Have a fab Easter!

SPORT RELIEF: Staff vs Pupils Charity Football Match

Last Friday, we held our Staff vs Pupils football matches, all in aid of Sport Relief. We had a fantastic turnout of players (both pupils and staff) and amazing support from pupil and parents.

We managed to raise just over £420!! Thank you so much for everyone’s support, it was a very enjoyable evening for staff and pupils alike (as well as lots of sore teachers over the weekend!)

 

Easter Cooking!

Nursery have been very busy cooking up some lovely Easter treats! We worked on our physical development by stirring our treats and pouring the chocolate into the mold. We were very careful making sure that our chocolate went into the mold and not the table! We also picked the colour of our cases for our Easter nests.

Our Lighthouse Keeper’s Breakfast!

Class 2 had a great time sharing a wonderful breakfast (that they had made) with their parents this morning. Over the week, they have been busy making their very own lighthouses, baking breakfast muffins, flapjacks and scones and making lunch boxes, all linked to our text ‘The Lighthouse Keeper’s Lunch’. They loved sharing their great achievements with all the Mums, Dads and Grandparents.
