Practising our throwing, catching and aiming skills in PE.
Thanks to all the children who brought in wooden objects for our materials display.
Back in school we drew our route on a map.
Our walk around the local area following the route on our map.
Looking at maps of Westerhope.
We made predictions about which materials were waterproof and then carried out an experiment to see if we were correct. It was a lot of fun!
Here we are finishing off our winter tree pictures.
Here are some of our finished pictures! We think they look great!
Today we were book detectives! We talked about what we could see in the pictures, what we thought might happen and what the title of the book could be! We had some great ideas.
We sorted objects by the material they were made out of.
We played a game feeling objects made of different materials and using appropriate words to describe them.
We went on a 'materials' hunt around school.
We carried out an investigation to see which materials were transparent, translucent and opaque. See if your child can remember what these words mean.
We went on a walk to look at how the school garden has changed now it is Winter.
Danni, one of the school nurses, came to visit us today. She talked to us about keeping our teeth healthy. See what your child can remember.
We used shades of blue and purple to paint a Winter sky.
We made pictures with silhouettes of winter trees which we carefully made by tearing pieces of black paper.
We used Dienes to set out the numbers from 11 to 20 as tens and ones.
In Maths we are leaning about place value. We worked with a partner to make numbers from 11 to 20 using tens frames and counters.
Welcome back to all the Year 1 children. We are looking forward to a busy term!
Happy New Year from all the Year 1 staff!
