This week Year 1 have been busy investigating.
In Science, We needed to help our dear friend Winnie the Pooh. Unfortunately, his umbrella had broken from all the bad weather. He asked us if we could make him a new one. We had to do lots of tests of different materials to see if they were waterproof. We found out that the plastic bag was the best material for the job!
In Art, we have been making Chinese lanterns. We had lots of fun drawing to the sound of Chinese music.
Year 1 have also been learning to write in Chinese. We found out that in China, they use symbols instead of letters. We had lots of fun writing our names.
In Maths, we have been doing lots of leaning about subtraction. We know that "less" and " fewer" also mean the same thing. We know that using cubes and number lines will help us.
The children had a brilliant time at 'Drop In And Draw'
Miss Harvey helped to children to create their very own Peppa Pigs.
Year 1 Christmas party!
Moonbeams had a brilliant time at their Christmas party.
We started with a competitive game of musical chairs.Well done to our winners Annabel and James!
After that, we settled down with our snacks to watch a Christmas movie.
Thank you to all the parents who contributed towards our party.
This week we have been learning lots about Christmas!
In R:E we have been making Christingles, we have had lots of fun labelling them in our books.
In Maths we have been learning about 3D shapes.
We know that a sphere has a curved face and a cuboid has 6 straight faces. We used our shapes and paint to create beautiful pictures. Can you see what pictures we made?
In Science we put our coats, hats and gloves and went on a senses hunt. We could see lots of orange leaves. We could feel the wet grass and we could hear the rain.
In Topic we recreated the fire of London. We enjoyed the different sounds we could hear.
Moonbeams have been doing a lot of writing this week. We have been writing diary entries from Edgar about his eventful Christmas day. We were so happy when the villagers accepted him!
Look at the pictures to see our special visitor.
This week has been a busy one for Moonbeams!
We stared the week by creating some of our own Rangoli patterns in R.E.
In Maths, we have been learning how to double and half. We learnt that each side must be equal. We practised by feeding equal amounts of peas to Obb and Bob.
In Phonics, we became human flashcards. We had to listen very carefully to see if we were needed to make the phase 4 word.
To help with our wellbeing, we learnt a new pose in our weekly yoga time. We centred ourselves like a tree and took deep breaths.
Below is a link to a brilliant website 'Letters and Sounds'. You will find endless resources to help you support your childs' learning.
NO PENS DAY
Year 1 have had brilliant day learning without pens.
We started the day with some Music, we had lots of fun learning our Christmas songs. We then moved onto Maths. Moonbeams really enjoyed making different numbers between 10 – 20. We had to use our imaginations to record our findings without pens. Lots of children used a tens frame and some pumpkins!
Next, we practised our speaking and listening skills. We had great fun listening to Kayden explain how he made his 'tornado machine.'
In Literacy, we realised that our stars had gone missing. We used our appropriate ‘star catching equipment’ to find them. We looked under the scratchy log, up in the green trees and we had to walk through the squelchy mud!
Year 1 had a fantastic day without pens!
This week we have been very busy!
In English we have been learning how to write a sentence. We have been trying to remember to use capital letters, full stops and finger spaces. We have also been learning about how to use a conjunction in our sentence.
In French we have been learning how to say colours. We did this by playing a fun game with the French
In Science we have been learning about parts of the body and what we use them for. Here are some of our ideas:
'I can use my feet to jump!'
'I can use my hips to hula hoop!'
'I can use my hands and fingers to roll play dough!'
In choosing time we have been matching Capital letters to lower case letters.
It has been really fun to see who can match the letters the fastest!
