What a busy year we have had in Year 1R. I can’t quite believe that very soon you will all be heading into Year 2 to start a new adventure with Miss Bimson. Here is a little look at all the fun we have had together in Year 1. You have all been fabulous and I think you will be even more brilliant in Year 2!! Miss Roscoe.
What was your favourite part of Year 1?
In DT we have been learning all about wheels and Axles. We designed our own fairground ride thinking about the shape and commercial appeal. Then we made a prototype to make sure our ride would work. We had fun testing out our designs! Well done everyone.
We are very lucky in our school that all the teachers work really hard making our displays bright and colourful. Our displays have important information on them which helps us to learn. Miss Roscoe also puts our best work on our displays so everyone can see.
Thank you to Miss Roscoe, Mrs White, Miss Lowe and Miss Khan for making such beautiful displays in our class, school and workshop.
This week lots of children in our school have been celebrating Eid. Eid is a Muslim celebration which come at the end of Ramadan, a month of fasting.
We learned about Eid and compared it with celebrations from other religions, then we made Eid cards for all our friends who are celebrating.
In our History lessons we have been learning all about the seaside and how holidays have changed over time. We used the computers to research and though of some questions we might ask about holidays in the past. Then one of our governors Mrs Worsley came in and answered some of them for us.
What did Mrs Worsley tell us about holidays from the past year 1?
Our science topic is all about humans and animals. We have learned to classify animals into groups. We learned that humans are mammals. We have also looks at other groups and learned that animals with wings and feathers are called birds. We looked at birds that you could find in the U.K. and thought about their features.
‘Birds live in nests in the trees’ – Sky
‘Birds lay eggs and keep their nests high so predators don’t eat them’ – Rayyan
‘Birds need wings so they can fly to their nests’ – Mahir
We took advantage of the lovely Spring weather and went outside to spot some birds nests. We thought about bird’s habitats and what materials they used to build their nests. We used the materials on the field to build our own nests.
Well done year 1R. What kinds of animals are predators to birds?
This half term one of our topic lessons in about holidays in the past. We know that we can look in books to find out information about the past. We also know that we can use the internet to find out things we want to know. We followed our safe internet rules and did some research on the computers.
We found out lots about past holidays.
‘People in the past liked to ride on donkeys’ – Jason
‘People in the past made sandcastles like us’ – Penny
‘People in the past liked to swim in the sea’ – Layla
‘People in the past brought parasols to protect them from the sun’ – Jasmine
Brilliant computing year 1. Can you think of any other things people did on holiday in the past.
Yesterday we performed our assembly. It was all about transport and what we had been learning in our History and D.T. topics.
Thank you to all the parents who came to share our assembly with us. We had a great time performing to our parents and families and everyone was very proud of us, especially Miss Roscoe.
Well done 1R!
