Valentines Park July 2018
Year One had a fantastic time when we visited Valentines Park. We travelled on the 296 bus and then enjoyed walking through the park where we saw Valentines Mansion and lots of animals like ducks, geese and squirrels. We were very busy when we were there! We have been learning about plants so we explored the Kitchen Garden where they grow lots of edible plants. We used an egg box to collect some interesting items- inside we put something pretty, something from a tree, something fluffy and some other objects too. We identified and drew a deciduous and evergreen tree; there are lots of both in the park! After all that learning we were hungry so we stopped and ate our delicious packed lunches. Finally we played in the outdoor play area where we showed off our climbing skills. We had so much fun and learnt lots too!
Country & Cultures Week May 2018
In Countries and Culture week Gold class studied Peru. We about learned the Inca people who lived in Peru 600 years ago. They built a city called Macchu Pichu and we built own version with lego! We found out about a famous Inca leader called Pachcuti and made crowns like the one he wore. We listened to a Peruvian story about a baker and then we made Peruvian bread rolls to eat at our picnic.
Book Week March 2018
In year 1 our book week theme was Magic and Mayhem. We read the stories; "Winnie the Witch," "The Magic Porridge Pot," "Room on the Broom" and "The Magic Key: Biff in the Jungle." We enjoyed a whole range of activities including magic potion making, drama, porridge tasting, making Wilbur the Cat hats, magical maths with Winnie ad of course the dressing up day!!
Visit from Victoria December 2017
In History lessons we have studying families and the difference between our childhood and the experiences of our parents and grandparents. Victoria came to visit us to tell us about her childhood. She was born in 1948 and so she is nearly 70. She brought lots of things for us to look at and we had such a fun and interesting lesson with her. Do you think she looks like anyone we know?......... She is Mrs Marsh's mum!
Verbs December 2017
In our Grammar lesson we learnt about verbs. Verbs are action words so we got busy and tried some out.
Anti Bullying Week Dani came to visit us during Anti Bullying week. We acted out a story and used partner talk to help us develop strategies that will make our school a happy place.
We are learning about 2D shapes in maths. We sorted some shapes into squares, rectangles, triangles and circles. Then we went outside and drew shapes on the playground.
In science we have been learning about the 5 senses. We used our sense of taste to try different fruits. Then in DT lessons we used the fruits we had tasted to make a delicious yoghurt.
In Geography lessons year one are learning about the area around our school. We went on a short walk to identify the landmarks we can see in our local area.
