In Year 1 today we have been ordering the months of the year. We wrote the months on strips of paper to practise our spelling and then ordered them into paper chains. They look amazing hanging in our book corner.
Today we took advantage of the sunshine and had our class story in the lovely cool gazebo. Our stories had an animal theme and taught us about how nice it is to make time for the people we love.
As part of our local area topic we today have been looking at our school grounds. We looked at all the different materials we have in our school and took rubbings to show the different textures our school and playground have. We are hoping to visit the castle and create similar rubbings to…
In year 1 this morning we have been shopping for different items. We shopped for items priced between 10p and 50p using coins to make the amounts. We then took our shopping to the till and the cashier checked our money was correct.
We said a fond fairwell to our tadpoles today. Becca has taken them back to the pond at Florence Arts Centre as they were developing both front and back legs. We can visit the pond to see how they are getting on a little later in the year.
Becca came for a visit today to check on our class tadpoles, she was happy with the progress however we need to feed them up. She then read us a story she had written about frogs.
We were very excited to come back to school to one of our tadpoles becoming a frog. We finally managed to get a picture of the froglet.
We were lucky enough to get out in the good weather today to practise our throwing and catching. We used hula hoops to improve our aim and then used these skills to throw the balls to each other. ⚽️
We have been taking care of our class tadpoles. We changed half of the water and replaced it with the rainwater the children collected, so the tadpoles could have a nice clean tank.
As part of our plants topic in Year 1, we investigated the different leaves around school using our identification sheet.
Year 1 have had great fun making sweets and cards for Mother’s Day
