We've also been using split pins to join our moving pictures. This week is anti-bullying week. We talked about how to make sad faces 'spin' to being happy. The children had lots of caring ideas to make others happy.
Year 1 are learning about capacity. We labelled the magic potions with the correct words - full, empty, half full and quarter full. Then we made moving measuring jug cards, using a hole punch was a bit tricky but we managed it! Be sure to use them at home.
Class 1 were very lucky to have a visit from a local artist, Jennifer Sims. Mrs Sims gave us lots of tips to help us with our paintings and told us about where she gets the inspiration for her own colourful, animal paintings.
We have been practicing counting in 5s by spinning spiders webs!
Back in the classroom, we used our artistic talents, that God has given us, to make pictures and patterns using the leaves, feathers and conkers that we found.
This Autumn, Year 1 have been investigating patterns within nature. We have been to the Church yard and looked closely at God's creations. We shouted a big "Thank you" to God for all of these beautiful things.
Year 1 have been learning about Continents and which animals live where. After studying Antarctica, we decided to use clay and tools, to make these lovely little fellows...
We have been finding out where our food comes from and have enjoyed tasting some of our favourite foods. We have been saying thank you to God for our wonderful Harvest.
Year One have been working hard to practice their addition skills, by counting altogether and counting on. Keep up the good work!
Science - ANIMALS The children grouped together animals according to their different features. Good job!
Measuring length, height and weight (mass) using non-standard units - cubes and handspans. Great job guys!!!
Wow! We've been super busy in Maths over the last few weeks. Numbers, numbers, numbers! Counting, reading and writing numbers. Making numbers using lots of equipment. Counting in 10's and one more and one less than a number. Even had time for some measuring.
We've had a little visitor in class.
Our class rules. We spent some time thinking about what rules are, why we should have them and why they are important to us. We have all agreed to follow these rules to make Year One a happy and enjoyable place to learn.
Our LEARNING POWERS. These learning powers are going to help us throughout Year One to become independent learners.
Observing seasonal change. We are going to see how the horse chestnut tree in the church yard changes throughout the seasons in Year One. We will take regular pictures and sketches in our Art & Design sketch books to note any changes. Beautiful day for it. The leaves on the tree are still a very vivid green colour.
