This week our learning has focused around our RE topic of Celebrations. We discussed what celebrations are and when we have celebrations. We finished off our week (and our half term) with a Year 1 party of our own!WB 19.10.20 - Celebrations!
This week, we all became scientists! Our topic is materials and this week we discussed how the same object can be made out of different materials. We discussed what different uses these may have. For example, we said a wooden spoon would be used for baking and cooking but a metal spoon would be used for eating. We had some great discussions!WB 12.10.20 - Science
This week the witch left a recipe at school for us so we decided to follow it to make our own potions! We then wrote our own recipes to make our own potions and we sent these back to the witch :)WB 5.10.20 - Potion Making!
This week, something very strange happened in Year 1! The caretaker at school told us that he'd found something strange in our playground. We did some investigating and found a cauldron with a magic potion in it! We had some discussions and we thought that it might have been left by a witch or a wizard...WB 28.09.20 - We found a cauldron!
This week, everyone in school read the story 'The Dot'. We spoke about the message in the story and how important it is to persevere and always try our hardest, even when things get tough. We then created our own dots which are now on display on the main corridor in school - they look great!WB 21.09.20 - The Dot!
This week, everyone in school read the story 'Here We Are'. In Year 1, we decided to focus on the page that talks about under the sea. We discussed what different animals we would find under the sea before we created our own watercolour paintings that we displaying in our classrooms and even around the school!WB 14.09.20 - Here We Are
We started off Year 1 by reading the story 'The Colour Monster'. We thought about each of the different feelings. We thought about what made us happy and angry. Why we might feel sad or nervous/afraid. Finally, we thought about what different things we can do to feel calm - check our our meditating photos and mindful colouring...WB 7.09.20 - The Colour Monster
