In Maths Year 1 have been working hard. Some Year 1's set about ordering numbers for up to 20 Whilst others have been combining two sets of cubes to help solve the addition bones left by the dinosaurs, luckily Year 1 succeeded and escaped the dinosaurs.
Year 1 have been busy scientists investigating which materials are waterproof in order to make an Umbrella to keep our toys dry.
Year 1 enjoyed dressing up as Paddington for Book Week. In addition to dressing up Year 1 went to the hall where they had a blast acting scenes from the Paddington Story.
This term in RE we have been focusing on Judaism. This week we looked at the festival of Hanukkah. After reading how the festival came to be we explored how it is now celebrated. From this, Year 1 have produced some magnificent writing.
The Sun reading bus visited the school on Monday and we were able to go inside. Although it was quite small there were so many books. We each got to keep a book, which we were able to read when we got back to the classroom. Year 1 were also very lucky to be able to welcome a story teller who told exciting and wonderful stories which were enjoyed by the whole class.
On Wednesday Year 1 had a fantastically messy orientation morning with their parents. After seeing some marvellous spelling and writing from the children, the parents joined in designing and making lighthouses ready for Year 1’s ‘Have you been lost topic?’ next term.
Year 1 had a great day being Victorians with children coming into school dressed as if they were living in the past; even Queen Victoria made an appearance. Throughout the day Year 1 experienced what it would be like to have lived during the Victorian era as a child.
Year 1 enjoyed a visit to Dover Museum where we were lucky to handled artifacts from the Victorian era. We also took on roles as different Victorian people and pretended we were working in Dover over 100 years ago.
This term has been fun. We have learnt about shops, dinosaurs and other fantastic stuff. Here is what some Year 1’s enjoyed this term.
“Pretending to be a dinosaur and then using the puppets.”
“Measuring the classroom with our hands and feet.”
“Making hedgehogs from leaves for harvest festival.”
