Bonfire night

admin on: Year 1

Last week, it was bonfire night.

In year 1, the children used their science work on senses to write a firework poem. 

In PE, the children created a firework dance!

In provision, the children created artwork using oil pastels and paint. They cut in to tissue paper to make Catherine wheel shapes.

In construction, the children loved using KNEX to make firework shapes.

Literacy Autumn 1

admin on: Year 1

We read a lovely poem called My Five Senses, which linked nicely with our science work. The children began to think of objects that we can identify using our senses and they wrote describing words to make the poem more interesting to read. We have focused a lot on presentation of our work and using capital letters to start sentences, finger spaces to leave gaps inbetween words and ending with a full stop. The children wrote their final poem and tried extremely hard to do their best writing. 

We read the story The Tiger Who Came to Tea and looked at recipes of foods that the Tiger liked to eat. We read instructions for these recipes and looked carefully at bossy verbs which start each sentence. They had a go at writing their own instructions to make a healthy sandwich and finally got the chance to follow those instructions to make their own sandwiches. We even wrote invitations to the Tiger from the story to come and have sandwiches with us. The children were so excited to see the Tiger arriving in our classrooms and sharing a sandwich with us.

Science work - Autumn 1

admin on: Year 1

In Science we have looked carefully at our facial features using mirrors and painted our self portraits. I'm sure you'll agree they look fantastic.

We drew round a child and labelled the body parts and played 'Simon Says' to identify them on our own bodies. We had fun learning about our senses. We did an experiment to identify objects using our sense of touch, hearing, taste, smell and sight. We also tried to test a question "Are two eyes better than one?" We tested this by catching a ball using one eye and then two eyes. As you can imagine we found that two eyes were much more effective, although we did have some skilled catchers.

Art Week 12 October 2020

admin on: Year 1

In Year 1 we focused on the Italian artist, Guiseppe Arcimboldo. The children enjoyed looking at and discussing some of his paintings. He used a lot of fruit and vegetables, flowers and even books in his portrait work. 

The children enjoyed doing some beautiful observational drawings of fruit and vegetables. They looked so closely at the detail on the piece they were drawing and tried to replicate it on their own picture.

We had fun making funny fruit portraits over our own faces and the children made their own fruit face pictures.

They used collage materials to make Italian flags too.
