Diwali The Celebration of Light

We have really enjoyed learning all about the celebration of Diwali. We have made Diwa Lamp crafts as part of RE lessons and even had a special visitor in school to tell us all about the special Hindu Festival.

Military Fitness Smiley Reward

We have had so much fun with the military this week.

We have been doing all kinds of different exercise to keep us fit and healthy and learning all about resilience which means we must never give up even when things get tough.

What was you favourite part of the day Year 1?

Mrs Bevin’s favourite part was the relay JENGA! You were fabulous in my team!

We are Poets

Today a real life poet came to join us. He was called Matt Goodfellow and we had so much fun listening to and joining in with his performance poems.

Later on we were extra lucky because Mr Goodfellow came to help us write some of our own poetry.

We played on the playground for 5 minutes which gave us the inspiration that we needed to write our poem.

This is what we came up with

Out on the Playground

We play on the equipment

Out on the play ground

We play chase

Maths is Everywhere

This week we have been conducting a transport survey as part of our Topic learning about our school grounds.

We used our super data handling skills to collect the information and put it in to a table. Later this afternoon  we made some block graphs on the computer.

Mrs Day are you impressed?

Super Scientists

We had a great time exploring the trees in or playground and were really good at labelling the parts of a tree.

 Well done 1B .

Can you remember the parts of the tree that we have been learning about?

We have been doing lots of wonderful writing in year 1, based on a book by our class author called ‘The Gruffalo’. We have been writing about the characters as well as the settings and have been trying hard to remember capital letters, full stops and finger spaces.

We have been learning and listening to lots of poems written by our class poet Giles Andreae

One of our favourite so far is Rumble in the Jungle. We are really excited to read his other poems too.

Do you know any Giles Andreae poems that we could read next?
