Year 1 have been looking at the seasons this half term and how the length of the day can change depending on what season we are in. We went on a shadow hunt and then looked at light and day around the world. The children then created their own shadow puppets!
This half term the whole school have taken part in the ‘Light of Hope’ project. The children had to create a tealight holder and decorate them with words of hope. The display looked fantastic last night!
Year 1 have been busy making planets out of clay. We first looked at the shape and then we focused on the colours of each planet. The children then picked a planet and used different techniques to make their own.
What a special day we have had today playing on the field, measuring our height for the last day in Year 1 and having a lovely ice cream on the big playground.
This afternoon Year 1 have identified many of the different trees in our forest by looking at the leaves. They then explored the forest and had lots of fun!
Year 1 have been busy this week investigating dinosaurs. We found an egg in the woods on Tuesday hidden away, wrote diary entries about the egg and today we have made dinosaur poo! We looked at the diets of different dinosaurs and what herbivores, carnivores and omnivores ate. We then made our poo for each diet type.
Today Year 1 started the day by writing silly sentences all about dinosaurs making sure they included verbs. Later that day we discussed how dinosaurs move and the children then created their own dances moving like a dinosaur.
Yesterday and today we have been busy learning all about dinosaurs! We researched facts about them and then learnt about fossils. We then collected some items from our woodland area and printed them into playdough to create fossils.
Today Year 1 have written some questions they want to ask about next year. We talked about how we needed question marks at the end of our questions and what phonic sounds we need to use.
This week we have been very busy completing phonics, maths, science and PSHE. In phonics we have been writing sentences and for science we went on a listening walk around the field and the pond. It has been lovely to have a busy classroom again.
