In science we have been investigating different temperatures. We discussed how we measure temperature and what units are used? We also had a go at reading temperatures on different thermometers.
For our investigation we put ice cubes in different places and observed the changes and measured the temperatures.

We were very lucky this morning to watch a production of ‘A Christmas Carol’. We joined in with some songs and copied all of the actions.
In R.E we have thought about the Christmas story and have sequenced the events and written about them. We have thought about the true meaning of Christmas and what is really important.
In maths, we are continuing to count in 2’s’5s and 10’s so please help us with this at home. We have been using resources to help us and have been explaining our thinking.
We have been very busy rehearsing our show of ‘The Snow Child.’ We are looking forward to seeing you all there and hope you will enjoy the show. Thanks for providing the children with costumes if you have not yet sent in your child’s costume please could you do so ASAP.
Thanks in advance,
The Year 1 team

We have enjoyed sorting and comparing old and new toys. We have even looked at Mrs Duckers’s mum’s teddy that is nearly 70 years old! We have found out lots of facts about old toys such as bears in the past had glass eyes or even leather boot buttons as eyes and that old cars were made out of tin.
We have also placed toys on a timeline and noted the differences between them.

This week in science we have been investigating our senses. We have enjoyed smelling, tasting, touching and hearing lots of different things.
We especially enjoyed guessing which pot contained the scent of lime and which plate contained the salt and vinegar crisps.

Welcome back everyone, we hope you all had a lovely summer.
All the Year 1 children have had a fantastic start to the year! This week we have enjoyed looking at the Paralympics and learning all about the events and the athletes.
We have also been into the hall to listen to some carnival music and have learnt some moves to perform.
In literacy we have been revisiting our transition book ‘Where the Wild Things are’ and have performed some freeze frames to retell the main parts of the story.
Overall we have had a very successful start to the year. Well done.
Please note that in Year 1 the children will need an indoor and an outdoor P.E kit. Please could the children have a pair of trainers for outdoor P.E.
In addition Library days are as follows.
Homework will be given out on Monday and this will last for the length of the topic.

Today we enjoyed going into the Life Caravan to learn all about how to keep our bodies healthy. We loved meeting Gerald the giraffe and he taught us lots of things. We found out that breakfast is really important to give us energy and that we should try to eat at least 5 portions of a variety of fruit and vegetables every day because they provide lots of vitamins, minerals and fibre which our bodies need to function properly.
We also found out that we should try to avoid eating too many sweets, cakes and biscuits because too many sugary foods and drinks can contribute to tooth decay.
In our P.E lesson we took part in a skipping activity! Some of us we really good but some of us found skipping quite tricky. We are going to keep persevering with skipping this week.
We are looking forward to more exciting activities during our Health Week.
Just a reminder that the dance show will be on the 8th July.

This week we were really lucky to have a visit from a lady called Lucy who works for a charity called the RSPB. We were considering how our school grounds are an excellent habitat for a lot of wildlife, and how we could possibly improve the habitats for the creatures who live there.
We used special equipment and techniques to carefully collect a range of minibeasts.
Our special pots had a magnifyer on the top so that we could see lots of detail and, with the help of an identification sheet, we were able to name the minibeasts we found.
Lucy showed us some really good places where we would find lots of minibeasts... There were lots of Leopard slugs under this slab!
Of course we already have an excellent "Minibeast hotel!"
After spreading out a white sheet, Lucy shook a tree and we found that many minibeasts dropped down and we could see them easily!
We learned such a lot about the minibeasts that our school grounds provide a habitat for. We will keep looking!
