Lost in the Toy Museum

admin on: Year One Blog

The children from Green Class enjoyed Yellow Class assembly so much, they invited Yellow Class to come and listen to their retelling of Lost in the Toy Museum. As the children come up with their own story telling actions to help them remember the story, it was really interesting to see the different actions that the two classes had thought of.

International Arts Week - Japan

admin on: Yellow Class Blog

What an amazing week in Yellow class learning all about Japan! International art week was a big success, every one was actively involved in learning about Japan's wonderful cultures, traditions, cuisines and music. We created art work to fill the room, including origami, Mount Fuji scrolls, Carp kites and decorated Kimonos.

We ate a picnic under our very own blossom tree, just like the Japanese do in the springtime. During our music lesson with Mrs Buckley, we listened to Japanese traditional music and expressed our feelings about it through drawings and words.

It was fabulous to see parents and other classes visit our class and admire the work. Well done Yellow class!

You all deserve a wonderful half term.

Both of the Year 1 classes joined together for a sports competition. We separated into 4 teams and did relay races to gather points for our teams. The green team were the winners, followed by the blue team, then red and yellow. Everyone supported each other well and we had some super fast runners!

Crazy hair colour mixing

admin on: Yellow Class Blog

We used the 3 primary colours, red, yellow and blue, to paint our wacky hair styles. We dropped watery paint onto our paper and blew it to make crazy hair. When the primary colours mixed together, we made secondary colours and these were purple, orange and green. 

What colours were in your crazy hair picture?

It was lots of fun mixing primary colours in our hands to make a secondary colour!

Optician Visit

admin on: Yellow Class Blog

We had a visit from 2 Opticians who work at Specsavers. They talked to us about how our eyes work and how they can check to see that our eyes are healthy and working properly.

We all got to try some frames on and we got a goody bag to take home too.

Police visit

admin on: Green Class Blog

We really enjoyed meeting our local police officers today. They talked to us about how to stay safe, and what to do if we get lost. Then we had lots of fun trying on their uniform and exploring the police van. Mrs Turner was very impressed with all of the interesting questions we asked.

Another busy week!

admin on: Green Class Blog

This week we have been being 'real scientists'. We have been investigating whether people with larger feet need bigger gloves.

 

Mrs Turner was worried that children weren't hearing the whistle at the end of playtime. We thought about why this might be. James thought the whistle might not be loud enough (Isla thought we could use a drum instead!). Nellie thought if children were too far away they might not be able to hear it, or if they were being very noisy. Also how does wearing our hoods affect how well we hear the playground whistle? We had a lot of questions that needed answering! What did you think? Can you remember what our TOP TIPS for hearing the playground whistle are?
