Year 1 have come into school with their Christmas jumpers today! They all look wonderful.
To start anti-bullying week on Monday the children and staff came into school wearing odd socks to represent everyone being unique!
To finish the week the children have come into school wearing something that makes them smile.
This week in Year 1 we have been looking at bar models. We have also been using our rekenreks to support our learning in our power maths sessions!
Year 1 had lots of fun looking around the school grounds and in the forest learning about Autumn. We went on a scavenger hunt to observe the changes in the season.
Year 1 had a great time creating a spaceship from the pumpkin that we received from the allotment!
We looked at the spaceship in our story ‘Toys in Space’ and created the features of a spaceship from cardboard and tin foil.
We have been reading a brilliant book called ‘Toys in Space’ by Mini Grey.
One of the characters in the story is a Hoctopize so we made one of our very own!
We had lots of fun making one and then we wrote our own instructions on how we did it.
On Wednesday Year 1 explored the 5 senses. We started the day with a listening walk around the school grounds. The children heard lots of different sounds.
We then explored the senses taste, touch, sight and smell.
On Wednesday Year 1 had a DT day learning all about moving pictures. We started our day by looking at books that moved.
We then looked at different mechanisms and created a sliding picture of the gingerbread man. The children had to work on their cutting, sticking and joining skills to create the picture.
We then looked at how to create a lever to make a moving picture from the story Jack and the beanstalk. We used split-pins to create the pivot and joined the lever to the beanstalk.
Yesterday the children could come into school in the colours red, white and blue to support the England team.
In our PE lesson we then concentrated on the skills you need to play a game of football. We worked on our dribbling skills, shooting skills and our passing skills.
Year 1 have worked very hard this year. We have created a celebration display to look at all our work throughout the year. Well done on working so hard and I am very proud of you all!
This half term Year 1 have been learning all about plants. Yesterday we looked at a flower in detail and talked about the different parts of a flower. We labelled a diagram and then printed a picture of a flower using the different parts of the plant. At the end of the session the children could confidently tell me each part of the plant and what it does.
Year 1 are looking at plants this half term and we have been busy planting cress. We discussed what plants need to live and how we could observe the cress over time. The children then planted their cress seeds and wrote their first observation.
We have also been looking at wild plants that grow. We discussed what this means and then went on a wild plant hunt around the school grounds. The children spotted lots of wild plants on their walk.
Year 1 are having great fun joining in with the Music Trust workshop. We created our own pictures using Chrome music lab and then learnt all about how to change the sounds and colours.
Year 1 have been busy learning all about materials. Yesterday we went on a material hunt to see which materials we could find in the outside environment. We then created a tally chart to show our findings and wrote down which material we found the most of and which we found the least of. We compared our findings and found that the most common material is metal and plastic.
Today EYFS and Year 1 had lots of fun in the snow. We have been busy making snowmen and an igloo!
