After a very busy and energetic week, we continued our healthy week with what builds a healthy lifestyle and diet. Children designed, made and most importantly... enjoyed eating their fruit kebab. Yummeeee!!!
The children had a great time learning about the bible story of Zacchaeus the tax collector. They re-enacted the story thorugh drama and freeze fram situations. They shared their views on the feelings of the people and Zacchaeus from his actions. Here are just a few of the video clips that captured the exciting work of Y1.
We had a fantastic time at the Butterfly house learning all about the different animals and where they live.
As part of our topic Paws, Claws and Whiskers, we are looking closely at the different animals in our animal kingdom.
Take a look at our animal print artwork and see if you can guess which animals we are thinking about?
We have used different printing techniques and painting styles to best capture the animal we chose.
We have started our Animals topic by looking closely at barn owls. So that we can write all about owls, firstly we look closely at their features and represented what we saw in our ICT work.
Look at our wonderful barn Owl art work!
We are learning about multiplication and division in our maths at the moment. We have had lots of hands on exploration of multiplying, grouping, sharing by 2 and we are now able to talk about and explain our understanding to each other. Go Y1!
It's Easter time and in Y1 we have done so much to help us understand the events surrounding Easter.
We made palm leaves and wrote words that would have been spoken at that time on them... we all walked on the palm leaves, as Jesus did.
Next we recreated the last supper. After finding out all about how Jesus died, we tried Hot cross buns and learned all about why these buns are important.
To celebrate Easter we made Easter cards and clay pots ready for the Easter bunny to leave some treat in!
We have been learning all about 2D and 3D shapes and properties. Here are just a few of our creations. We had to describe the properties of the shapes and patterns.
This week we shared our learning with the school and our parents. We enjoyed performing the story of the 3 Little Pigs and showing lots of new learning. We hope you enjoyed it too.
This week has been Science week. We have investigate 3 different experiments in Y1.
Firstly we made a real egg change from being hard and delicate, to become soft, squidgy and bouncy!!! We left the egg in white vinegar over night and the next day it had changed!
Then we put 4 white flowers into different coloured water to see if we could change the colour of the petals... and it worked!
Lastly we mixed food colouring in milk to see a beautiful mix of colours... then dropped in blobs of washing up liquid and saw the colour change back to milk!
We were amazed at the results we found!
