Year 1 – Senses
Year 1 – In science this half term, we are learning about our senses. We have explored our sense of taste. We tasted lemon juice, honey, marmite, milk, vinegar and orange squash. We described what we could taste using amazing adjectives. Look at our faces! Do you think we liked the tastes?
Year 1 Art Week 2023
In Year 1 we have been learning about Andy Goldsworthy. Andy Goldsworthy is a British sculptor and photographer. He is know for using natural materials such as rock, mud, pine cones, leaves and branches to create his art work. We explored his work and created our own art piece replicating his style.
West End In Schools Workshop
Today Year 1 had a very special guest in to school. West End In Schools delivered an exciting work shop all about the book called ‘Trolls’. After warming our bodies up we read the story and acted out the different scenes. Finally we put the actions to music to retell the whole story through dance. We highly enjoyed this workshop! Just look at our faces!
Today we visited a Place of Worship. We went to the Hindu Temple, Bhaktivedanta Manor.
Here we got to visit the shrine, where people come to pray and worship the Hindu Gods. We listened to some percussion instruments and the song ‘Hare Krishna’.
We then went on to learn about the story of Rama and Sita, an important story in the Hindu faith. Whilst learning the story, we role played and dressed up as the important figures in the story. Then, everyone got to try on traditional clothing such as saris and turbans.
To end our wonderful visit, we learnt about how and why cows are sacred to the Hindu faith and we even got to feed them!
Here are some pictures from our visit to the Mandir…
We are proud of you!
In PSHE, we have been discussing what is looks and feels like to be proud of an achievement. We all received a ‘Proud Ticket’ with something our teacher was proud of us for and all our classmates celebrated each other achievements. We discussed how it made us feel knowing other people were proud of us.
Egg Box Dragon Interviews
Our core text in English this half term has been The Adventures of Egg Box Dragon by Richard Adams. For this lesson we built on our learning from the previous day. We generated questions we wanted to ask Egg Box Dragon. For example, how did you find the purse? When did you realise you had a gift? This lesson, we used these questions within role play. We were in groups pairs: 1 news reporter and 1 Egg Box Dragon. The new reporter asked Egg Box Dragon the questions to which Egg Box Dragon replied with what they thought was the correct answer. We the performed to the class.
Exciting Learning Coming Soon ….
Look back here soon to see all the learning that is taking place in our class.
