21.01.2020 - Today in science we have been on a material hunt around our classroom. We sorted objects by the material that they are made out of. We looked for objects made out of metal, wood, plastic and fabric. We also came across objects made from paper and glass. Some of the objects were too big or were objects that we couldn't move so we wrote these down on post-it notes.
16.12.19- Polar Express Day. We are enjoying watching the film in our Pyjamas!
11.12.19 - we looked for the Naughty Bus on the playground. We recorded what we could see using our folded fieldwork at our fingertips sheets. We used a compass to find out which way was North.
10.12.2019 - Today our elves (Eddie and Elvis) left us a special letter and a book called 'The Polar Express'. The elves told us to write why we deserve a ticket for the Polar Express. We are very excited to hopefully receive our tickets and have a fun day!
26.11.2019 - Today we arrived in class to discover a letter, diary, book and sticks from Stick Man. We visited the outdoor classroom and made our own stick people.
Tuesday 5th November - Today we learnt about what bonfire night is and why it is celebrated. We then made our own firework pictures by coiling and folding card, paper and pipe cleaners in different ways.
Tuesday 5th November - We had a lovely time on our autumn walk. We looked for signs of autumn and collected leaves and sticks. When we got back to school we made leaf men using the leaves we collected. In English we have started to read the book Leafman.
Look at the mess the naughty bus made in our classrooms! We used our plan of the classroom to draw the route he had taken.

07.10.2019 - Today in English we read the next few pages of Little Red Riding Hood. We worked in groups of three to act out the middle part of the story. We have been using different voices and expression to help us get into the roles of the characters. See if you can act out the story with your family at home.
03.10.2019 - In RE this week we have been thinking about why Christians may compare God to a loving parent. We made a list of what our parents do for us and then thought about what God might do for Christians. Some of our ideas were - keep us safe, provide us with food and water and keep us healthy.
Remember to start collecting items for Art week. We could like children to bring in photographs of themselves and their family and a picture or wrapper of their favourite chocolate bar, sweets or biscuit. Thank you!

24.09.2019 Today we walked into the classroom to find a basket left on our carpet. Inside we found some cupcakes! We wrote down some of the questions that we had such as 'Who put the basket on our carpet?' We had a go at using question marks to punctuate our questions.

17.09.2019 Today we investigated 'If you have the biggest hands do you have the biggest feet?' We found out that this is not always true!
Today we made buildings for a town like in the 'Naughty Bus' story. We made shops, houses, hospitals, police stations and lots more. We used different construction materials to make them.
On Monday we found a gold present and a book left in our classroom. we made predictions about what we thought the present was. On Tuesday we unwrapped the present and read the first few pages of the book. Inside was a red London bus. The book was called 'The Naughty Bus'.
We have had a brilliant first week in Year 1. We have settled in really well and got to know our classrooms. This week we have been learning in our new areas and working with our teachers on handwriting and numbers to 10.
