DT week!

We have had such a fantastic week designing and making our moving animal toys. The children started by exploring different moving mechanisms and then choosing one of these for their own toy. They then thought of some initial designs and shared these with each other. Next the children looked at the available resources and began to think carefully about how and where they could use each resource. They then planned their final design and made their toys! They all look fantastic and the children have shown great perseverance all week.

Little Red Hen stirs it up in Year 1

Year One have loved the launch and exploration of the Little Red Hen this week. Following the clues on our scavenger hunt was an exciting hook. Then we story stepped the main parts and today we made up some actions to help us remember the key phrases. Why don’t you ask us if we can tell you the story?

Exploring multiplication…

In maths this week we have begun to look at ‘groups of’ by looking at visual representations. The children have been writing repeated addition number sentences to match the pictures. We then moved on to exploring arrays and focusing on how many columns we could see and how many were in each column, this told us how many there were altogether. The children have shown great perseverance whilst exploring this new concept!

Wanted: The Perfect Pet

Year one had a wonderful week exploring this book. We let our imaginations run wild trying to guess how the story would end. We certainly did not guess that the lonely duck disguised himself as a dog. Our discussions helped us to draw story maps and our finished writing was just fabulous.

Animal Magic!

This week the children have had a wonderful time looking for animals around the school. Bumble bees, butterflies, snails, ladybirds, woodlice and spiders are just a few of the creatures we have found. We have had a go at drawing them and also discussed what their habitat is like.

Sensational salads

The children had a wonderful time this week exploring salad vegetables with Mr Bunce in DT. To begin with, the children tasted some of the vegetables so that they could build the best salad ever. Pretty soon the children got stuck in prepping, chopping and assembling their sensational salads, which they were lucky enough to take home to share with their families.
