24.1.22 Putting on our Thinking Hats!

Today in Italy class the children put on their ‘Thinking Hats’ to learn more about the brain. They listened to a scientist at Manchester University explain how the brain helps us, how much electricity it generates and how much of our brain we use. The children then took a quiz and did a super job at answering the questions. 

Chinese New Year

Year 1 had an exciting start to the week as they welcomed Explosive Erica, a scientist from Mad Science, to their school. Children explored thrust and aerodynamics through experiments to take a rocket to Mars.

Italy class have been learning about addition using a number line

What A Performance! During Art Week, Year 1 have immersed themselves in some familiar fairy tales. Children have explored play scripts, written their own scenes, created stage backdrops and puppets, expressed themselves through interpretive dance to Peter and the Wolf… and so much more!

Spring Term Starts

In the first 2 days, Year 1 have immersed themselves in analysing the character of the wolf from traditional tales. The children have created freeze frames from stories, made lift the flap character descriptions and formed an opinion to answer the questions ‘Is the wolf really a villain?’ The children thought of some fabulous vocabulary and enjoyed being creative, too.

Italy class have fun at the Christmas Party!

Games, dancing, a video from Santa and even special visitors bringing gifts!

 

During this week, Year 1 have made Christmas biscuits. They used maths skills, co-ordination and team work to create these tasty treats!

A Visit From the Author Sean Perkins 

Today we had a special visitor in year 1. The children were mesmerised by the story of Oscar and Ben, as told by it’s author, Sean Perkins. Sean answered many questions that the children had about being an author and publishing a book.

“Where did your inspiration come from?” Arthur

Finally, they all joined in a song about the characters Oscar and Ben. The children had a fabulous time! Here are some of their quotes:

“I wanted to eat the cake!” William

“ The characters were  naughty” Owen

” The song was funny” Jessica H

” We would like him to come back again!” All children. 

 

 

Year 1 have been busy observing the weather this week and keeping a weather diary. The children even spotted a faint rainbow during Tuesday’s play time, which they didn’t expect to see!

Week beginning 1st November 

This week the children have enjoyed our theme of Maths & Computing. We began our week looking at the book: Just a Second. We learnt interesting facts about what can be done in a second, minute, hour, day and a week. The children then made nature clocks, carried out investigations into what they could do in a minute and learnt about the months of the year. We learnt to use technology to send and print our photos to a printer, then to retrieve them. We also continued to develop our mouse skills using a laptop.   
Also this week, we have learnt about the festival of Diwali and why it is celebrated. We used primary colours to link Art, R.E. and bonfire night celebrations by creating beautiful firework paintings. We have also enjoyed spending time reading and relaxing!
