Sharing Stories

Last week was National Storytelling Week and to mark it, classes around school celebrated the magic of storytelling.  Early Years classes continued to learn and practice their stories together while Later Years classes read our class books aloud at the end of each day.  Year 6 leaders also visited other classes to share their love of reading with other students!

Year 1

Technology Football Tables

Our Big DT project!

We had immense fun designing a new football pitch and two team kits. Then we painted large boxes to look like our designs and coloured our kits. After that, we created cardboard football players and completed the tricky challenge of gluing them together without them falling off their sticks. Finally, we were ready to play! We invited our Year 4 reading buddies to come and play with us.

 

Year 1

Science Waterproof Absorbent

We investigated how waterproof a material is by measuring how many drops of water it would absorb.

 

Year 1

Science Sorting Materials

We have been exploring different materials in Science. We investigated what different materials we could find in our classroom and described them using their properties. We found ways to show how one object can be made from more than one material.

 

Year 1

Phonics Writing Captions

We all practised writing captions for a detailed picture. Then we took turns to read each other’s captions and put them onto the matching part of the picture.

 

Year 1

Maths Comparing Number Sentences

We enjoyed comparing number sentences using Numicon and scales. We noticed that the heavier number sentence was always greater than the lighter number sentence.

 

Year 1

Maths Bar Models

We learned how to use a technique from Singapore, Bar Models, to represent number sentences.

 

Year 1

Traction Man

We enjoyed reading the stories so much that we decided to innovate them. So we planned our own versions and our new characters went on lots of adventures all over our houses!

After writing fantastic stories we decided we wanted to publish our books like Mini Grey so we turned our writing into beautiful comic strips. We all persevered to create and complete our designs.

 

Year 1

Art Sculptures

In Art we ended our exploration of people and portraits by building sculptures of people. We were careful to use objects to represent different parts of our bodies and had lots of fun repurposing old materials!

 

Year 1

Geography

We loved ending our Geography topic about exploring our school grounds with an Autumn treasure hunt. We were very excited to find a whole patch of funghi on our field! After exploring, we recorded our findings on a map of the school grounds.

 

 

Year 1

Writing

We have loved writing facts all about owls this week. We tried to organise our ideas into four different sections: an introduction, features, food and habitat. We were very careful to use full stops in our sentences and we synergised brilliantly to help each other make our writing even better! We loved reading our final texts to our friends.

 

 

Year 1

Best of Me

This week we had our ‘Best of Me’ afternoon to celebrate the end of this half term’s topic. The children engaged well with the different activities and discussed which of the seven habits they used to complete each task. Pictured here is a game called Flip it Over, where a team of children must turn over a piece of fabric while standing on it. This required some careful listening to each other instead of all saying their opinion at once (seek first to understand, then to be understood) as well as working together (synergise)

 

Year 1

Maths Greatest Smallest

In Maths we practised building groups using the vocabulary ‘greatest’ and ‘smallest’.

We also learnt the vocabulary for the ordinal numbers. We synergised to organise ourselves in order from first to twenty-ninth! Now we are practising spelling the ordinal numbers:

First

Second

Third

Fourth

Fifth

And so on…

 

 

Year 1

R.E

In R.E we began asking questions about what Christians believe. We talked about why some Christians think that Sunday is an important day. We enjoyed a visit from Danny and Karen who work at a local church. They shared about why Christians believe that God and Jesus are important. We also discussed why some people think that prayer is important.

 

 

Year 1

Show and Tell

We have loved hearing about all the fantastic learning and activities you are getting up to at home! We have lots of active Ninjas earning certificates and being extremely adventurous and brave.

We also learnt about how to make healthy food choices from one of our friends.

Please keep sharing all the learning you are doing at home! Remember you can use the homework grid for ideas.

 

Year 1

Computing

We have been learning how to log on carefully and make sure we keep our passwords private. We also designed our Avatar to represent us.

 

 

Year 1

Geography

In Geography we explored our school. We enjoyed looking around the different playgrounds and cheering each other on as we used the KS2 Trim Trail. We were careful to take photos of the different features we sawl.

Back in the classroom we examined an aerial view image of our school and matched our photos to the different places on the image.

 

Year 1

Maths Greater/Less

In Maths we sorted bears into different groups and compared them using the words:

  • Greater than
  • Less than
  • Most
  • Fewest

 

 

Year 1

P.E Rolling

In P.E we investigated different ways to roll objects. We loved inventing our own rolling games!

 

 

Year 1

Science Listening Walk

In science we are learning about our senses. We went on a listening walk around school and wrote lists of all the things we could hear! Then we investigated how sound travels by making string telephones and by feeling the vibrations in our throats when we speak.

 

 

Year 1

Show and Tell

We have really enjoyed celebrating all the fantastic learning we have been doing at home!

 

 

Year 1

Writing Questions

We have been learning how to write question marks and when to use them.

 

Year 1

Fizzy or Calm

This week in Year 1 we have been finding more ways to be proactive. We are learning that we are in charge of our actions, attitudes and moods. To help us with this, we named lots of different moods and acted out what happens to our bodies when we feel them. We discussed how when we are nervous our tummies might have ‘butterflies’ and when we are frustrated our hands and faces might scrunch up.

We also talked about the difference between feeling fizzy and calm. We realised that sometimes it is great to feel excited and bouncy, like a bottle of cola, but other times it is better to be a ‘calm water bottle’.

 

 

Year 1

Maths

In Maths we have been learning the vocabulary:

“Just the right amount”

“Not enough”

“Too many”

We tried to share out the fruit fairly, but realised we had too many carrots and not enough apples. Fortunately we had just the right amount of tomatoes!

 

 

Year 1

Science

In Science we are learning about our senses and our bodies. This week we learnt that the eye is an organ and we use lots of different equipment to help us see better. We enjoyed exploring the courtyard with magnifying glasses and discovering lots of tiny plants and animals.

 

Year 1

Synergising

We synergised to make a video celebrating some of the ways we can be proactive.

 

 

Year 1

Birthday Cards

We enjoyed making birthday cards which we will use throughout the year to celebrate one another’s birthdays.

 

Year 1

Celebrating choosing time

We spotted patterns and compared the weight of different objects during our choosing time.

 

Year 1

Circle of Influence

Today we practised Habit 1: Be Proactive. We discussed what we are in control of. We realised that we are in control of ourselves and not in control of others. Here are some of the very sensible things we said:

“I can choose to use kind hands”

“I can choose to be nice to other people”

“I can’t choose the weather outside”

 

Year 1

Leaf Printing

We enjoyed printing with autumn leaves. We will share these on the habits tree in our classroom.

 

Year 1

Put first things first

We worked together to sort out what is more important and less important, so that we can put first things first.

 

Year 1

What I want to be like

1.2 Are beginning with the end in mind!

Today we shared what we want to be when we grow up. Here are some of our ideas:

“I want to be a nurse because they fix animals and people.”

“I want to be like William Buckland because I like dinosaurs”

“I want to be a fireman so I can take care of the world”

“I want to be like mummy because she makes nice cakes and wears necklaces”

“I want to be like Marshall because it’s a firefighter costume”

“I want to be like ghostbusters because they fight ghosts and it’s brave”

“I want to be a baker like my mummy because she makes super cakes”

“I want to be like my mummy because she makes my favourite food”

“I want to be a chef because you get money and cook food”

“I want to be a ballerina because I like dancing”

“I want to be a princess because they are kind”
“I want to be a nurse because they help people”

Leader in Me

For the first 8 days of the Autumn term we have been introducing all the children to the 7 habits and our new whole school project: The Leader in Me.

Please see the link to our daily newsletters which introduced parents to each habit and our celebration day on Friday.

We are seeking to teach children that they are the leader of themselves and with the 7 habits they can become leaders of others.
