We have had a great time learning our story Billy’s Bucket. We have made changes to the maps and are now writing our own versions.
We have had a great time trying our experiment into will it float?
We got lots of items and predicted if it would float. We tested our theory and recorded the results in our books.
We have thoroughly enjoyed making dancing dragons as part of our Chinese New Year celebration day. We even had some time to make our dragons dance to some traditional Chinese music.
Year 1 have been hearing the story of St Bridget this week and we have tried to weave a cross. It was quite difficult but with a little help we managed to make some stunning crosses.
Year 1 had a great time today testing to see if different materials were waterproof. We dropped water onto each material and discovered which absorbed the water the quickest and which was waterproof.
In our gymnastics today we have been learning how to safely travel and jump. We have also been working on landing on 2 feet and finishing with finesse.
Year One have had a great time this week focussing on the story ‘Bring the Rain to Kapiti Plain’. We looked at the weather in the story and decided we would help end the drought by making our own rain dance to the music. Sorry for all the rain since- oops!!
Year 1 have had a great gymnastics session today learning about core strength and balancing. We learned new balances and helped to support our partner when needed.
In our phonics this week we have been using our detective skills to spot the sounds that go together. We have been sounding them out and seeing how many sounds we could spot hiding in our story.
Year One have enjoyed learning gymnastics today. We looked at different positions for our body to be in and learned the technical names for them. We are looking forward to learning a routine soon.
After our amazing performance year one have had a busy week making cards and calendars using repeating patterns. We also made a bauble for the class Christmas tree with a piece of ribbon attached showing how tall we are. These crafts will be coming home next week.
Well done year one for two amazing nativity performances not to mention all the hard work they put in to learn lines and dances. A big thank you to everyone who came to watch us and to the parents for the amazing costumes. We are very proud of you all. Merry Christmas x
