World Book Day
It’s World Book day today and we love nothing more than curling up in our pyjamas and reading our favourite book, so today we’ve come to school in our pjs!
We’ve done lots of different activities about the books we love and finished the day with a hot chocolate and a biscuit while we quietly read our books.
World Book Day – Lets buddy up to read!
As it’s World Book Day today we took this opportunity to buddy up with our friends in Year 5.
They read out favourite books to us and we loved it!
What is Prayer
Our new topic in RE is Following Jesus. Today we thought about how important it is to pray and talk to God. We learnt about how Jesus taught his disciples to pray.
Today we all painted a picture about how we think of praying.
Forest Schools and Yoga
This half term, Year 1 are taking part in forest schools and yoga. It is to encourage healthy minds and for the children to enjoy being outdoors. The lesson was then finished with a lovely calming hot chocolate, which the children loved!
Science – Seasonal changes
At the beginning of each half term in science Year 1 observes the seasonal changes. We wanted to see if we could see any of the colours that we might have seen in Autumn.
My reading buddy!
Year 1 buddied up with a pupil from Year 5 and had a lovely time being read to this afternoon.
Art work – Textiles
Our Autumn 2 topic in art is textiles. We looked at the artist Sharon Haffey and took inspiration from her sunset art piece. We used lots of different textiles to create our very own master piece!
We invited our Mums and Dads to our own prayer share. As it was the month of Mary our prayer share focus was about our own mums and the promises we can make to them.
Our science topic in Year 1
This half term our science topic is all about our body parts and senses.
We have been working really hard to identify the different body parts and we have been learning all about our senses.
We have been playing games, learning songs and rhymes to help us think about what senses are used for and how important they are!
We also had a special treasure hunt to see if we could find objects that need our senses.
During Space week, we decided to celebrate everything space related for a whole day!
What better way to start than by visiting very own star dome in school where we looked at the stars. We also made our own flying saucers and planets!
The Tiger who came to tea
In English we have been reading and learning about stories that have a familiar setting. We have been reading the Tiger who came to tea and made some fantastic masks of the tiger before writing all about him! Rooooooooaaaaaaar!
We’re going a bear hunt!
In English, we’re reading and learning all about the story We’re Going on a Bear Hunt.
Today we acted out parts of the story in small group and went on our own bear hunt!
