More of our Food Technology Project to
Eat More Fruit and Vegetables...
How well do you know your tens and ones? Do you know how many tens and units are in two digit numbers?
We had a really FRUITY DAY in Y1 this week. We were learning about the parts of plants that we eat in Science and about being healthy with five-a-day. We also made fruit kebabs in Food Technology and they were delicious! Finally, we learnt about the Italian artist Guiseppe Arcimboldo who designed portraits from fruit and vegetables. What do you think of our own FRUITY FACES?
Here Comes The Sun!
As part of our Science work on plants, we planted sunflower seeds, sequenced the story of the sunflower and carefully drew the other half to sunflower photographs.
We had fun giving the beebots instructions to collect the nectar from the flowers. We had to collect nectar by travelling from the roses to the daisies to the daffodils to the sunflowers to the dandelions.
OOH-LA-LA from France!
Barnaby Bear went to France with Harry and came back to teach us all about it. We learnt French expressions, how to greet each other as French people, we had a sunny French picnic and we learnt about the country. We had great fun in our team challenge to design and make Eiffel Towers!
Science Week in Year One
We went on a journey to the Australian Great Barrier Reef
Didn't we have a lovely time the day we were Victorian children...
As part of our work in Science on plants, we spent an afternoon being Nature Detectives. See what we found in our school grounds below:
The Easter Bunny Came To Year One!
We all had the best time at Easter making cards for our families, baking Easter biscuits, decorating Easter plates and learning about Christian beliefs. The Easter Bunny visited us and left us special gifts!
We love you MUMS!
We hope you liked the cards and baskets we made and the cakes we baked and decorated for you all! THANK YOU MUMS! XXXXX

We've all gone ANIMAL CRAZY IN Y1!
Not only have we been learning about amphibians, reptiles, birds, fish, mammals and insects but we're off to the farm this week to find out all about farm animals. Cool stuff eh!
"I liked the piglets because they were funny." Willow "There were lots of animals. The little bambi deer was my favourite." Natasha "I liked the sheep because I fed it and it was cute." Riley "I liked the big ball pool because I went down the dark slide and it looked spooky." Jacob D
DON'T FORGET CHILDREN AND PARENTS, READING IS SO IMPORTANT, SO IN YEAR ONE:
GIRLS READ ON TUESDAY, THURSDAY AND FRIDAY
BOYS READ ON MONDAY, WEDNESDAY AND FRIDAY
THE LONG AND THE SHORT OF IT!
In Year One we've been learning about different ways of measuring...
ROCKET DAY WAS...A BLAST!
We learnt all about what it's like being an astronaut and about what a rocket journey is like. We made rockets in teams and wrote poems - One day I thought, I'll be an astronaut...
As you can see, it's not all work and no play in Y1...YET!
In Y1, we REALLY love maths. You'll get to see lots of examples of the fantastic work we do here, so keep on visiting us on our class webpage!
