Year 1

Yesterday we sorted and classified objects according to materials and their properties. We chose materials to make a home for a stick man thinking about their properties and we played a game at the end to end our science experiment.

This week Year 1 have been looking at Judaism. Yesterday we looked at the story of Abraham and today we learned about the story of Moses. We spoke about how he saved the jews from the Pharoh by parting the sea. So, we decided to begin to make our own creation of this.

Year 1 exploring systematic number bonds using ten frames …. !!

Today in year 1, for Literacy we worked in pairs looking at our dictionaries. We sang the alphabet song to refresh our brains, then we put words in alphabetical order and we looked for them in our dictionaries and found their meanings.

For Science on Wednesday Year 1 looked at their new topic different materials. They were able to group materials and objects.

Children in Year 1, 2 and 3 enjoyed creating their gardens for King Charles III as part of our Coronation celebrations.

Children who visited year 1 had a great time learning about kindness. We used our oracy skills to discuss what we thought being kind meant and how we can be kind to others. We then used toothpaste to understand that once we say or do something unkind, it is hard to get it back.

Year 1 had a great maths lesson learning all about capacity and volume. We talked about which container had the biggest capacity and whether it was full, empty, half full, nearly empty or nearly full.

Year one completed a science investigation yesterday to work out which boat could hold the most stones before sinking. We also investigated floating and sinking and found objects that float and sink. #scienceweek
