We have been using a printing technique to make animal patterns. We used different tools to make our design on a tile and then we used a roller to apply the printing ink. Finally we used the tile to print our design onto paper. We are very proud of our work and Mrs Phillip thinks the results are amazing!
Look at some of our fantastic patterns!
This week we have been learning about safari animals. We looked carefully at their colours and patterns and tried to recreate them.
We were so excited when Mrs Precious brought her dog Libby to visit. We found out lots of interesting facts about her. Ask your child and see what they can remember.
The children have been very interested in frost, ice and snow and were keen to make some snowflake pictures. Did you know that a snow flake can be made from up to 200 ice crystals!
This afternoon we had lots of fun learning about Chinese New Year!
We had some visitors from the NSPCC today who talked to us about staying safe by speaking out and by being heard. We met Buddy, a speech bubble, who reminds us to say, 'It is not ok!' to hurt children and we learnt about how to get help if we needed it.
As part of our work in Science on seasonal change we went on a winter walk today to the school garden. We noticed that although lots of trees were bare, some trees and bushes still had leaves. We were very suprised to see that some spring flowers had already started to grow especially as it was so cold. Ask your child to tell you what they know about Winter.
We had a very interesting assembly today with PC Christian who talked to us about staying safe near roads.
Welcome back to Year 1!
We hope you've all had a lovely Christmas and New Year.
