All about me!

Today in Science the children labelled their body parts. Using the song Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes as a starting point, the children used Post-it notes to create their own labels for other body parts. They enjoyed being active and had some fantastic discussions about their learning. Well done, Year 1-what super teamwork!

Art and PSHE

Year 1 listened to the story of the Rainbow Fish, and discussed how important it is to share and to always be kind to others. 
The children then spent the afternoon carefully painting their own rainbow fish.

Money: Maths

Year 1 have spent the last week recognising coins and notes. They have been using their reasoning and problem solving skills to find different ways to make certain amounts.

Art and DT

The children enjoyed making an underwater scene using water colours and thread. The children experimented with hole punchers and threaded wool through the holes to create waves. They used their colour mixing knowledge to create different shades of blue. 
Well done Year 1!

Science Investigators

In Science today the children went outside to label parts of common plants and trees. The children learnt that the roots absorb water from the soil and the leaves absorb sunlight. 
We also listed all the signs of seasonal change and we discussed the signs of Summer we could see around us. The children spoke confidently about the weather being warmer and that plants are growing.

Farm Visit

Year 1 were very lucky last week and were able to visit some farm animals on our school field. 
Farmer Ian told the children facts about the different animals and they were able to stroke and groom some of them as well.
