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.
Year 1 have been enjoying using their Power Maths books at home! They have been working extremely hard.
Year 1 have been very busy at home!
This week we have been very busy looking at all things to do with Science. On Monday we got to program all different types of robots and experimented with how to move them and use them. Miss Langford then gave us instructions that we had to follow and we pretended to be a robot ourselves!
This afternoon we have been busy looking at how the state of chocolate can be changed by heating it and how to plan a fair test. We made a list of what we needed to melt the chocolate and what would happen to it. Many of the children predicted that the chocolate would melt when it is over heat! We then put our chocolate into the fridge to see if it would return back to the original state. Whilst waiting for the chocolate to cool down we completed another experiment involving us melting chocolate in our hands! We timed the experiment and measured the chocolate pieces against one another so that the test would be fair. We then had great discussion on which chocolate we thought melted the quickest- milk or white chocolate.
