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!
Here are four boys making 'Mario's Mansion' out of lego together. They are being so co-operative, sharing and taking turns to add things to their construction. There is lots of discussion about stairs and chimneys. So lovely to see and listen to!
Here is a very neat piece of work from this afternoon in class - I hope everyone at home spotted the same natural features on the photo of Lake Windermere during Geography this afternoon! Thank you so much for all the learning that is taking place at home, I am so proud of you all!
We loved playing in the snow this morning! Henry has made a perfect snowball here!
Today we had a delicious lunch with Yorkshire puddings, mashed potato, turkey and lots of gravy! We enjoyed it very much.
In Year 1, we have been exploring Non-Fiction books and identifying their features. Next week, we will be using what we have learnt to write an information page about the Great Fire of London!
Year 1 used their knowledge of waterproof materials to successfully build miniature umbrellas for Mr Ostrich (a toy in our class). Hopefully they will keep him nice and dry!
Year 1 has been experimenting with materials to see which are the most waterproof. There was lots of water to mop up afterwards!
Y1 have been exploring the different types of materials that objects are made from. These boys have glass! Other materials we had were metal, plastic, wood and fabric.
Year 1 have just started writing their own version of 'Zog' by Julia Donaldson, with their very own dragon. We created this story map beforehand to ensure we knew everything that happens in the story and in what order.
In Year 1 this week, we have been learning about the Sacrament of Baptism. We acted out a Baptism as part of this, and as part of the ceremony, Hollie and Demir decided to name their baby, Bonnie!
