This week Year 1 celebrated the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, along with the rest of school, and we have a wonderful time! We have our very special school lunch outside, with the rest of school and had an amazing day celebrating a once in a lifetime opportunity.
Over the last few weeks, Year 1 have been having special computing lessons but a number of different teachers from Junior Jam. We have been learning some simple coding and how to keep safe online. We even designed some e-safety posters using iPads!
After this week’s Science lesson, Riaab went home to hunt for flowers in his garden. He made a list with his family and then brought it in to share with our class.
This week Year 1 have loved taking a walk in our local area to the library. We listened to a story and then got to read some of the amazing books there. We were even allowed to borrow 5 books for our classroom!
We hope you enjoy this video all about the adventures 1C have been on during our Arts Fortnight, all about The Disgusting Sandwich!
This week we have started to learn our new story, The Disgusting Sandwich, and have done some work to deepen our understanding of what we are reading.
First we looked at the settings in the story and made some 3D maps using paper manpulation skills.
Then we went into the cafe and made some beautiful sandwiches… which we then dropped in the sand pit, dipped in the pond, rode over them on scooters and more! Just like in the story.
We then took a walk in our local area, learning some key features of Alwoodley and road safety, as we walked to the… park!
At the start of the day we were joined by Roham’s dad and Daniel’s mum, who came to talk to us about Nowruz. They explained all about the celebration and the importance of looking after our Earth.
We were inspired to go out and celebrate Nowruz in our own way by looking after the nature in our school grounds. To do this, we engaged Team Ant and went out litter picking around the grounds.
This week we have had a wonderful time taking part in Science Week. We have been learning about animal classes and classifying animals, exploring scientific questions and we even took part in a live lesson all about mini beasts.
Over the last two weeks our ACE Geographers have been learning about the different continents and oceans of the world. We have been singing some songs to help us remember the names, as I am sure some of you will have been hearing at home, and been locating them on maps.
This week, 1C have been learning how to code on Kodable and collecting stars with our own special fuzzballs!
