Today, Year 1 visited the Cathedral for the first time in ages! It was very exciting. There was lots to see and we had lots of questions to ask!
Year 1 have been exploring materials again. We had to sort a variety of objects into the right group. The children were very keen to help each other out!
We kicked off Wider World Week with some baking in Year 1! Everyone helped to mix or add ingredients, and the result was some delicious bread.
We made some delicious chocolate nests in Year 1 to celebrate Easter! We mixed melted chocolate with cornflakes and spooned it into cupcake holders. Miss Whitaker can confirm that they were delicious.
We learnt about Good Friday on Tuesday - we found out what happened to Jesus at each Station of the Cross, and we felt very sad about the awful things the Romans did to him. We represented what happened at some stations with drawings.
This week, we have been listening to different rhymes and songs about gardens! Today, we learnt the words to 'Mary, Mary, quite contrary' and created our own dances to perform to the class. They were great fun to watch!
This week, we have been planting seeds in Y1. Hopefully they will grow into beautiful flowers!
On Wednesday, the children had to practice following instructions in class! Then, they had to read and follow a set of instructions independently. As you can see, it involved placing a crayon on a glue stick, and turning your chair to face the sink!
Today we made puppets of our favourite book characters! Then we included them in our play which was great fun! Hope you like our puppets and costumes!
Year 1 were very busy this afternoon decorating biscuits with a drawing of their favourite book character! They were very good and looked very yummy!
This afternoon, we took our pencils 'for a walk' and sketched what we could see from the playground. This is in preparation for the 'A View from my Window' art project.
For our Friday Guided Reading session, the children paired up with someone that had a different book. Then, they talked their partner through what their book was about. There was lots of turn-taking and good speaking and listening. Well done, Year 1!
