It has been another busy term in Year 1 and we have had lots of fun!

Forest School will be on a Tuesday.

World Book Day in Miss Hill’s Class

Across Year 1 and Year 2, we split into houses and visited each teacher to take part in a different Julia Donaldson themed activity. We made a moving book cover, paper dolls, maps of a story setting and we explored floating and sinking.

This afternoon, we did ‘Stop, drop and read!’. We all chose somewhere in our classroom to get comfy and read.

What a busy day it was!

We can’t wait to hear what book the children will choose with their voucher.

 

World Book Day in Miss Buckingham’s Class!

The children looked amazing and had a wonderful day today!

Across Year 1 and Year 2, we split into houses and visited each teacher to take part in a different Julia Donaldson themed activity – we made a moving book cover, we made paper dolls, we created maps of a story setting and we explored what floats and sinks.

This afternoon, we did ‘Stop, drop and read!’. We all chose somewhere in our classroom or outdoor area to get comfy and read.

We also made our own books, made reading dens, made playdough dinner for the Gruffalo, built an outdoor reading space and were inspired by athletes in books to be sporty outside.

What a busy day! We can’t wait to hear what book the children chose with their voucher.

Geography in Miss Buckingham’s Class

The children were amazing at learning the compass points this week. We discussed that we always have to find North on our compass, and learnt rhymes to help us remember the four points.

We went outside with our own compasses and drew what we could see under each direction! We were brilliant geographers!

The children loved making their compasses and asked me if they could make another at home – those who wanted to have bought home a template today!

(Write the compass points on – N,E,S,W. Orientate the compass to face North. Open the flaps and draw what you can see in each direction)

Have a lovely weekend,

Miss Buckingham and Mrs Goodwin

Year 1- Dog Visit

The children in Year 1 had a wonderful time meeting Ernie the dog today.

They learnt how to care for a dog and were able to feed and stroke him.

Next week, the children will be writing their own non-chronological report about how to look after a dog. We can’t wait to read them!

Here are some pictures below:
