1H had a great day celebrating World Book Day this week. We had so many children come to school wearing something green to support the schools focus being 'Looking after our environment'. We chose the book 'Tidy by Emily Gravett' which was centered around the theme.
We really enjoyed reading the story and used the story as part of our weekly P4C session whereby we thought of some questions that we would like to talk about and after a vote we chose to discuss the following question, 'Did Pete the badger do the right thing?'
We had lots of discussion points around what he did in the story and whether we agreed or disagreed with what he did. This then lead on to talking about our environment and how we can care for it. We all then wrote our own pledge on a leaf that is something we will try to do to look after our environment. There is a beautiful display at the top of the stairs in the new building so please go and have a look!
The rest of the day was spent planting cress seeds, making our own forests using creative materials and writing our own books.
On Wednesday 22nd January we went to Eureka as part of out Science topic this half term. We have been learning about the human body and identifying parts of the body. Last term we also looked at the different jobs that you could have that link to the body as well as other jobs that we could have that help the community.
During the day we got to spend time in the All about me section of the museum. This was really fun as we had access to all kinds of experiments and activities. We then went through to the section that allowed us to see what it was like to work in a post office, bank, supermarket and a garage. This was great fun!!
In the afternoon we went to watch a show called the Gross Lab! It really was gross!! but funny at the same time. We learnt all about the digestive system and took part in different experiments that showed us how our bodies work.
Our behaviour was absolutely amazing all day and couldnt help but fall asleep on the coach on the way home! Take a look at all of our photo!
We had a great start to our new year this week in ICT. We worked independently to log in to purple mash, select the correct programme and draw a picture of what we did during the holidays. We also wrote a sentence about what we did, remembering to use finger spaces and capital letters. We really enjoyed sharing our news with our friends.
Nurse Sam came to visit us this week to talk to us about the importance of washing our hands.
We all agreed that washing our hands is really important to keep us healthy and to stop germs going into our stomach.
We need to remember to wash our hands before and after a meal, after we have been playing outside, after going to the toilet and after stroking pets.
We had lots of fun pretending that the glitter on our hands were all the germs we might have picked up during the day!
We worked together this week to carry out an experiment with water, oil and food colouring. We predicted what we thought was going to happen, tested it and found out the results. We were all surprised to see the results as we didn't realise that the oil would sit on top of the water!!
We really enjoyed being scientist this week and look forward to our next experiment!
Our class teacher is Miss Hardy and our classroom is downstairs in the big building. We have lots of amazing adult helpers in our class like Miss Todd, Miss Hussain and Mr Carpenter who we all really love to work with.
