Year 1 enjoyed exploring the different aspects of Creation. They felt the grass and soil underneath their bare feet, listened to the different nature noises, closed their eyes and felt the sunlight on their skin, discussed their favourite animals and explored different textures around them such as bark, leaves, grass,stones and flowers.
Reception and Year 1 were lucky enough to have our local police officers come and visit us to talk about how they help keep us safe and answer any of our questions.
This week Year 1 have been putting their seasonal knowledge to the test. We all went on a field trip around our local community to see what signs of Spring we could observe and record, just like our science superhero ‘Dingo Detective’.
Throughout the week we are using this as a focus in our writing starting with Spring sentences building up to Spring poems in the style of Shirley Hughes.
Welcome to Year 1’s very own weather station. Today we have been recording our own weather forecasts applying our knowledge of weather, seasons and day length.
26/1/22 LI: To create our own treasure chest to hold our success coins.
Today we decorated our treasure chest boxes as part of our new Jigsaw topic- Goals and Dreams. We discussed our successes so far and look forward to adding our success coins over the term.
Welcome back and a very Happy New Year from all of Year 1! We have had a fabulous frosty first day back learning all about seasons, shapes and excellent forest school skills.
07.12.21 Year 1 have been busy exploring and reasoning with even and odd numbers this week. We have been using Numicon to help us sort numbers, recognise patterns and problem solve.
Year 1 have had a fabulous time in science this week using our classifying and observing skills.
We used our animal diet knowledge after finding lots of research ( just like Professor Bookworm) from previous lessons to investigate different animal poos. We then classified and sorted the poo into groups of herbivore, omnivore and carnivore. Year 1 were so hooked by this task that they wanted a go at making their own. So we scavenged the woodland for items we would find in each poo and chose an animal to create a poo for. Fabulous scientific skills!
Year 1 have enjoyed identifying, labelling and understanding how technology help us this half term. We were very excited to use the chrome books on Tuesday. We practised turning them on and off and using the trackpad to select our log in options.
A huge warm welcome to Year 1!
We have had a fabulous first day, the children have settled back into school life as quick as a flash. Everyone is enjoying working together, listening carefully, sharing ideas and exploring the exciting provision inside and outside.
