Finding the Countries in the World Cup

1S have been getting into the spirit of the World Cup. We all picked a country out of the hat and found it in the atlas.

We also found the correct flag and coloured it in the right colours.

Mixing Colours

We have been learning about the story of the Three Little Pigs. We measured the distance the Big Bad Wolf travelled from each of the three little pigs houses. The children worked together in partners and took care to measure accurately using a ruler. They then recorded their findings and discussed them with their peers.

This term, Year 1 are learning all about traditional tales. In science we have been learning about materials. Starfish class explored what the best material would be to make a boat for the Gingerbread man to cross the river safely. The children used a variety of everyday materials including paper, cardboard, wooden straws and lollipop sticks and plastic. The children then tested their boats to see if their material was strong enough to carry the weight of the gingerbread man, and whether or not their material was waterproof.

Starfish enjoyed their morning using their Senses. Firstly, we started on the field. We had to use our sense of hearing whist blindfolded to follow the sound. After, we had to find other people in our group using animal noises. Year one moved into the nature area. They made potions, completed a blindfold trail and successfully hunted for bugs! A very busy morning was had by all.

Who lives in the nature area?

Jellyfish enjoyed their morning in the nature area. They investigated what lives in the nature area using binoculars and magnifying glasses. They found spiders, earwigs, centipedes and worms!

Working together, using our senses

This morning, Jellyfish and St Rapheal visited the nature area. They worked together to learn more about using their senses. Year 6 helped certain members of Jellyfish to complete a blindfold trail; there were a few obstacles in the way, just to make things tricky! Both classes also had to hold and describe items found in nature whilst blindfolded. The co-operation and team work shone through this morning.

Using our senses

Jellyfish used their senses on Monday afternoon. Whilst testing, Jellyfish used all their senses of touch, taste, smell and sight. We tried chocolate, lemon, popcorn and crackers. Most children preferred the popcorn as the chocolate was a strong taste for us! Lemon was very sour!

Perfect Pizzas

Chef Eduardo from Bucatini came to visit Year 1! He showed the children how to make a pizza and we got to taste them, they were delicious! Later in the week the children made their own pitta pizzas! We are now writing instructions for a vegetable pizza.

A busy morning of outdoor learning

Starfish enjoyed a morning of the nature area. Busily, they found the fairy doors, observing closely. They also fed the birds and discussed what the birds need to eat. Our next experiment was testing toy cars on different surfaces to see which surface was fastest for the car or where less accidents occurred! We discussed our results together at the end of the morning.

Jellyfish in the Nature Area

Jellyfish spent a productive day in the nature area today. They found the fairy doors using their observational skills. They tested cars on various surfaces seeing which one was best for speed, distance or crashing!! Jellyfish also built shelters for their little teddies, they admired each other's designs. I'm sure, after a full day outside, they will sleep well tonight!

1 Jellyfish counting outdoors

The children in went onto the field and looked for leaves and sticks. They counted the leaves they found and used them to write addition number sentences.

Learning about Senses

Year 1 have been learning all about senses in Science. We met with Olly the dog to think about how dogs senses are different to humans. Olly showed the children how he uses his sense to perform tricks and sniff out his favourite doggy treats!

Starfish in the Nature Area

Starfish ventured into the nature area today. They worked all their senses very hard. They played hide and seek with dinosaurs, played a touchy feely guess the object game and also made their own pictures using natural materials. Starfish were kept very busy!

Jellyfish in the Nature Area

Jellyfish used all their senses today in the nature area. They smelt different herbs discussing their texture and smells. After this, they moved onto making their own sweet-smelling potions for elves and fairies.

Using their eyes, they matched colours. This proved tricky but they had some successes.

We also played a guessing game. One person went off to find some items and then the other person had to feel and describe the item.

In the afternoon, Jellyfish enjoyed a fire and discussed the smells, sights and sounds they experienced.

Jellyfish Hunting for Shapes

We have been learning the names of 2d shapes and their properties. We went for a walk around the school to see if we could spot any shapes we had learnt about.

Starfish in the Nature Area

Starfish enjoyed their time in the nature area. They explored and used their senses to solve various challenges. We smelt herbs and learnt their names, listened carefully to sounds in the local environment and felt different textures. Starfish all enjoyed being in the shade on a very hot day!
