Today in Year One we used explored using clay. We have been learning about Andy Goldsworthy and the natural art he creates. We carefully, rolled, squashed, and manipulated the clay to make different shapes. We will use these skills to create our own natural sculptures. Well done for being creatively fit for life!
Well done to the children in 1T, who have been both creatively and academically fit for life when completing this homework! The children were asked to research an event relating to any king or queen in British History and share it in anyway they wished. This homework will be entered into the Agora Partnership-wide competition. Good luck to all of those who have submitted their homework!
1T thoroughly enjoyed our trip to Whipsnade Zoo! We were able to see many animals from different parts of the world and we even learnt some wonderful facts about penguins and flamingos! We will be using our learning to stimulate our non-fiction writing, where we will be creating a travel journal in which we see many exotic animals. A big thank you to the PTA, who’s Rainbow Raffle subsidised the trip. What a wonderful day, we made some brilliant memories.
In Year One today we were learning about capacity and volume. We were making potions from a recipe that each group had to independently follow. Luckily no ones potions exploded!
Today we began making our houses in D&T. Firstly, we discussed our group plans and gathered the materials we needed to start making our houses. Then we began using different joins to build the inside of our houses. We used lots of different techniques and skills and worked well as a team!
This half-term we will be creating a house in D&T. Today we started learning about different ways of joining and combining materials. We enjoyed using some of our new skills to create furniture to go inside our houses!
1T really enjoyed our Christmas party today! We played a couple of games and then tucked into our yummy sweets provided by the PTA. We all had lots of fun getting into the festive spirit! Thank you for all your donations for the sweets.
Today 1T took part in a healthy eating workshop. The children discussed the importance of making healthy choices when eating and getting their five a day. Then they created a salad wrap, making a beautiful picture with their ingredients.
Year One have been retelling the Christian story of Christmas using story sticks they have made. Fabulous work Year One!
