Weather Prints - Today we used the printing blocks to create weather pictures. We chose our colours and then used the rollers to spread them on the printing blocks. Then we used lollipop sticks to create our picture and then printed them on to paper.
Beegu - Today in literacy we made friends for Beegu using clay. We thought about what would make a good friend.
Busy Day! - In RE today we have been learning about the Creation story. We then drew pictures for our Creation display. We also had a lot of fun outside!
Beegu - In literacy we have begun work on the book 'Beegu' by Alexis Deacon. We made models of Beegu using play dough and puppets using card and lollypop sticks.
Sorting - We have been sorting groups of objects in different ways. We sorted by colour, shapes and type.
Welcome Back!! Please have a read of the Year 1 Autumn newsletter to find out some of the things we will be doing this term.
Year 1 and 2 had a fantastic day out on the river. We saw lots of wildlife, landmarks, other boats and much more. The rain stayed away and the children learnt so much whilst having a great time. Many thanks to all the adults who helped and to all the people along the river who put up with us waving at them.
We had a great time at our share afternoon painting the alien masks.
Year 1 have been studying measurement this week. Today we were using the timers to record how quickly teams could complete their races.
Well done to all the children who competed in our fundraising event this morning. We let the children count the laps they ran with some claiming to have completed over 2,000 (the equivalent of running from London to Manchester) although 15 was the average. It is a fantastic cause and we all had a great time. Don't forget to join us for the cake sale next week when we will be aiming to sell over 2 billion buns!
There has been a lot of fantastic imaginative play in Year 1. Decorating and manipulating the boxes, in all sorts of ways, helps build our vocabulary and allows us to create a narrative to our play. Having said this, sorry for all the paint on shirts, dresses, trousers and jumpers.
We have been reading the book 'Owl Babies' by Martin Wadell. We imagined being an owl alone in a dark wood, what would you see? How might you feel? We then used charcoal to draw some illustrations. It did get a little bit messy!
