Safer Internet Day

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.

Practical Maths

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.

What is your favourite type of weather and why?

Science and Seasons

We have been learning all about the four seasons in Science.

The season now is Winter. It is cold in winter.

We worked out that it was 3 degrees today and  used the internet to work out the temperature for the rest of the week using the weather forecast.

We decided that it was best to wear our hats and scarfs while the weather is so cold.

Year One were amazing in their sports assembly this week.

We had lots of children trying so hard in their races. The bean bag race was the favourite of Mrs Bevin.

Super Scientists

Our topic this half term is all about materials.

We need to find out what material would be best for the three pigs to build their houses from.

We started by researching lots of materials in our DT lessons, we looked at whether a material was soft or hard.

We decided why the materials were used to make objects around the classroom.
