This week 1B became super scientists and explored a range of materials. We talked about what a material is and so many children had such fantastic ideas! As a class we then discovered how we could distinguish between an object and the material from which it is made.
We found the word distinguish quite tricky to say and understand at first - but we kept practising and soon we remembered that it meant to tell the difference between things.
1B went on a material hunt around the room with a friend, and I was so impressed! I had no idea how many materials were around us all the time! Just like wood, plastic, metal, rock and glass! We then made sure that we could distinguish between the material from which the object is made and the object itself.
Mirela found a water bottle and she knew the material it was from was plastic. Go girl!
Can you find any different materials at home or in school? Come and let me know if you can!
Good luck! From Miss B. x
What an exciting week it has been in 1B! As a class, we have been working none stop thinking of lots of different and creative ways to promote anti-bullying. 1B have made it their mission to work as a team and be kind to everyone. Well done 1B!
It all started on Monday morning in assembly. By showing us how important it is to work as a team, Miss Toft challenged us to STOP bullying.
First, we had to understand what bullying was...
Then we began our mission to stop bullying by...
We began our mission by creating STOP posters as a class...
Teamwork in PE...
1B explored how important it is to work as a team during our PE sessions this week, as children had to work together in order to complete and win races. All of 1B worked really well together and enjoyed including everyone!
Girls and Boys...
This week also made 1B think about boys and girls being kind to one another. After reading a special story called My Princess Boy, 1B discussed how happy they are that the little boy could dress and play just how he wanted to! 1B voted together as a class that boys and girls should be able to do whatever they like! We sat in a special circle, listening to each person politely, sharing our own views.
We felt so inspired by this special book that in our ICT lesson we used our super computer skills to google image search pictures of girls and boys being whatever they want to be. We looked at boys who loved to dance, women fire fighters and even male nurses! 1B are so good on computers now!
After working so hard all week, 1B did not stop there! As a class the children decided to create a performance encouraging anti-bullying.
Our special performance shows 1B acting out unkind words to one child, that they have seen or heard on the playground. This is Several Times On Purpose, suddenly Lewis (playing our poor victim) Starts Telling Other People and suddenly all the noise goes away and children help Lewis and work as a team.
1B worked so hard on this performance and worked together as a team to create it. Everyone worked brilliantly. We hope you enjoy it!
Welcome back Year 1! I'm so pleased that you all had a lovely break, I really enjoyed hearing all of your stories.
This week we have been exploring bonfire night and Guy Fawkes! As a class we discovered the history behind this night and all of its fantastic traditions. On Friday we went to the astro pitch to see our very own fireworks display, which inspired us to make our own yummy sparklers to eat using sprinkles and lots of chocolate! Then we created some super firework art using chalk!
We hope you enjoy our poem about bonfire night too - I wonder who will still remember it on Monday!?
Have a super bonfire weekend and remember to be safe 1B!
