Maths Investigation Week - 24-28th September 2018

So far this week Year 1 have had lots of fun investigating numbers and the number system....

On Monday we investigated how quickly we can make numbers by matching numbers to number cards and if we can subitise (say how many you can see without counting).

On Tuesday we had great fun investigating how many coloured smarties there were in a small pack, which we got to take home and eat after school!

On Wednesday we investigated how to show numbers on a tens frame and practised representing numbers on a dice with our learning partners.

Silly Sentences

We have been learning about what makes a good sentence this week. Lots of us remembered the three main ingredients for a good sentence - Capital letter, finger spaces and a full stop. We played a game called silly sentences and had lots of giggles reading the sentences we created. Here are a few...

25th September 2018 - How Are You?

This half term our topic is How Are You? We have been considering how we can live healthy lives and thinking about people who help us. We have a doctors surgery role play at the moment...this poor patient had a poorly head and an injured arm so needed some help but the nurse soon helped him feel better!

4-7th September 2018 - Take One Picture Week

Year 1 have looked very closely at Monet's 'Japanese Bridge' painting. We learnt that Monet used very fast little brush strokes to create his painting so we decided to use very fast finger prints to create ours. Some children noticed the waterlillies under the bridge and tried to include these too...great job! We used art straws to create our own version of Monet's bridge cutting the pieces very carefully and getting very sticky attaching them with PVA glue! We are very pleased with our paintings, take a look and see what you think...

Making Fruit Kebabs in DT - Tuesday 6th March

After reading 'Oliver's Fruit Salad' we decided to make some fruit kebabs. We talked about the fruits we would like to include and the equipment we would need to create the kebabs. The children designed and labelled their fruit kebabs using a plan which you can see some examples of in the photos below. Once Mrs Terris had brought in the fruit we set to work...have a look at our tasty creations!

World Food Day

On Monday 16th October Year 1 and 2 joined together to celebrate World Food Day, using the theme 'My Breakfast, Your Breakfast'. We began our day by looking at breakfasts eaten by four children around the world, and comparing them to our own.

Next, we created food waste posters to help us think more carefully about how we can reduce the amount of food that goes in the bin at lunchtime.

In the afternoon we thought about our GLP big issue "How can we make others feel welcome?" Caroline in Uganda didn't have any breakfast or lunch at school and Mouna in Mali had to pound the millet before she could eat it. Laila thought that if these girls came to our school we could give them some food, so we made some delicious breakfast rainbow fruit pots and cheese and fruit bagels that we would share with them.  We ended our day with a thankfulness prayer and breakfast picnic.

Brilliant Bee-bot maps!

In computing we have been learning about programming Bee-bots. We are now designing our own local area maps so that we can create an algorithm to program the Bee-bot to travel from the Co-op shop to our school!
