Today was national No Pens Wednesday in schools. With a focus on oracy and speaking and listening skills, we explored all our usual lessons, but without any pens, pencils or keyboards! Take a look at some of our activities!
This week 1C have become bakers, just like Thomas Farriner, and we worked collaboratively, to bake scones.
We followed a recipe, and noticed imperative verbs such as mix, pour, rub and roll.
Today was our first time playing kickball and following rules as part of a game.
We ended up with a score of 110-122 as we engaged Team Ant to work together when fielding and supported our team mates.
This week, as part of our hook for The Great Fire of London, we wrote down things we “can’t do” and burned them on the fire… because there is nothing we can’t do! We noticed once they were gone we could not get them back and then used empathy to think about what that would be like if that happened to our houses.
As we moved towards the end of our unit on addition within 10, we focused on working on our reasoning and problem solving skills.
In 1C, we thought about working systematically to make our task easier and then worked with our learning partner to find all the possible solutions to a problem.
Please make sure you have responded to the questionnaire regarding internet access and devices at home. It is really important that we have this information, in case you need to self-isolate.
1C have been ACE Artists this week as we moved on from continuous line drawing to sketching our friends with clay! We loved exploring the textures, how to mould clay and creating our own sketches.
We are uploading a photo of our class story map for the Three Little Pigs story so you can practice at home. The children also know the actions. I wonder if they could teach their adults?
Great news, our blog is up and running! Please find some pictures of all then different activities we have been doing in 1C so far.
