We have been very busy in our computing lessons making sprites move and designing our own screen savers! We have been using 2code to help us and Mrs Bevin has been very impressed!
Earlier this week we have been using the 2graph software to do some cross curricular learning about transport and the number of wheels.
Here are some of the block graphs we have made.
We have been learning about lots of different Fairy tale stories over the last few weeks and we have enjoyed them all but our favourite has been The Three Billy Goats Gruff.
We used the blurb and the front cover of the book to make some predictions and then we read the story and re enacted it with our super acting skills.
Once we had a good understanding of the story we chose our favourite character , the troll to do some descriptive writing. We used thesauruses to make our writing exciting and we shared ideas with others to produce some fabulous writing.
Take a look at these:
This half term we are learning all about team games. We have been throwing and catching with our partners. We are getting really good at this now.
Mrs Moore is very impressed with you all.
In Year One we love to read books from our class library every morning. We have really enjoyed reading books written by Julia Donaldson as she is our class author. Year One love “The Highway Rat” and “What the Ladybird Heard”. Finlay even brought in the sequel so we could share “What the Ladybird Head Next” with the rest of the class!
We have discovered so many different Authors during our time spent in Year One and Story Time is one of our favourite parts of the day.
This week we are celebrating World Book Day and are going to be doing lots of fun activities linked to some of our favourite stories.
Before half term we set up an investigation to see how much rainfall falls during a week in the season of winter. We made some rain gauges and placed them on our school fence so that they could collect the rain water.
We all made a prediction of how many millilitres (ml) of rain would have been collected over the week of half term and today we went to go and take some recordings.
We enjoyed using out maths skills to measure and record our findings.
Does anybody think they might know what results we found?
At Oxford Grove we always think carefully before we go online. We know that there are things online that can make us happy and things online that can make us sad.
We have been making faces to show and share with our friends that happy things we can do on the internet and what to do if we see something that makes us sad.
We learned about a set of monster friends who posted online their entry to a competition. Lots of people were posting nice comments but one person posted something mean and it upset the monsters. The monsters told an adult and the adult was able to help them get it sorted out.
This week in maths we have been learning how to find half of a number.
We know that we need to share into 2 groups equally.
We also worked out that doubling is the opposite of halving and we can use our doubles to help us to halve numbers quickly.
