We chose our own animal this week to write about and we had to design them first using the small lego.some of the pieces so far are amazing! We have lots of different animals. See if you can guess what they are!
Getting anything done on Wednesday morning was a challenge as the children were all so excited about their Eid party in the afternoon. Everyone looked lovely in their party clothes and we enjoyed discussing the different types of food that the children had brought in!! Thank you mums and dads!! :) We played lots of games, ate lots of yummy food and really enjoyed our afternoon as you will see looking through the photos! :)
We were finding our number bonds to 10 and 20 quite difficult to remember so we decided to use Lego to help us out! It was amazing to see how much the Lego helped us to remember these bonds! We made towers of numbers and matched them to their number bond partner and chanted the bonds at the end. You can even try this at home with Lego, blocks and bricks that you might have.
In our construction area we really enjoyed using different materials to create ocean animals including a huge squid. We worked really well as a group and shared ideas and resources. His name is Silly Sam the Slimy Squid.
We really enjoyed working in Teams to compete against our friends to complete the end of topic quiz! We all have so much fun and all teams did really well and remembered so much about what they have learnt in our last topic.
In our Anchor sessions with Ed we just love to act, perform drama scenarios and make freeze frames! It really helps us to capture real events and stories that we have been learning about. We found learning suffixes quite difficult but after pretending to be a King and a Queen we seemed to remember when to use -ed, -ing and -er
It was great to see lots of parents come to our workshop on Friday 17th March! We are all becoming super readers in year 1 and it was nice to be able to show our parents what we are doing in class. Reading for enjoyment is something we should all experience and enjoy doing at home as well as at school. We discussed our favourite stories, characters and different types of questions that we can ask and asnswer to develop knowledge of our reading. Thank you to all those that came!! It was all made slightly better with a few cakes and treats to enjoy whilst reading :)
1C have really enjoyed experimenting this week and have become quite the keen scientists! We carried out lots of different experiments which involved making predictions, comparing results and having lots of fun!
During the last week of the half term we enjoyed lots a great activities, shows and a party. Stay and be festive was a huge hit and we all really enjoyed the morning with our parents that came! It was great fun to decorate and make our own Christmas decorations and Miss Hardy let us use so much glitter!! (Sorry to the cleaners!!). We played lots of games and had a dance off before our party food. Thanks for all the contributions, they were yummy :) The panto was absolutely fantastic and wish we could have seen it more than once! We laughed so much!
I hope you have all had a lovely Christmas break and enjoyed your time off school. Make sure you get lots of sleep on Sunday night ready for another great half term in 1C! Will look forward to seeing you bright and early :)
1C had a brilliant time at the Museum at the end of the term! We were all so excited to finally see the Dinosaurs and were able to name all of the Dinosaurs that we have learnt. We became explorers for the afternoon and had to work in our team to find all of the clues that helped us to locate the dinosaur we were looking for. Stan (also known as T-Rex!) was a huge favourite of the class and enjoyed taking some selfies with him :)
