We are having a very exciting time in year one. Here is a list of things we have been doing
- A visit from the PCSOs. The children all know how important it is to wear a helmet when out and about riding their bikes and scooters. The children all sat in the back of the van and tried different police helmets on.
- Salt Dough handprints. As we continue with our topic about 'Ourselves' we have made an imprint of our hands in Salt dough which we are going to decorate and bring home.
- Tasting in Science. We have been thinking about our senses in Science and in one lesson we learned about taste. The children tasted some different fruit and vegetables and thought of some adjectives to describe their taste and texture, there were some very funny faces when they tried the lime!
- Fruit and Vegetable portraits. The children looked at the work of artist Giuseppe Arcimboldo who paints portraits using different fruts and vegetables to create the features. We created our own using fruit and vegetables to print with. Who knew a rhubarb would make a good mouth?!
This week we have started to look at the story of Elmer. We looked at the colours and different patterns the other elephants wear on Elmer day. We each designed an Elmer and thought about how the colours make us happy. Here are a few photos to show our amazing designs.
All the things below are what we did last year in Year One...
Keep checking back to see this Year's updates!
Year one had a brilliant time at Wolds Gymnastic Club. They used lots of the apparatus as well as as using their bodies to create different shapes and move in exciting ways. They all really enjoyed their time at the gym and all the year one team are very proud of them.
The children has such a good day at Dalby Forest yesterday! We found the Gruffalo and the Highway Rat on the walk and they loved playing in the park! All the children behaved really well and we are all super proud of them! Well done Year 1!
The Bumble Bees has great fun acting out the story of Goldilocks and The Three Bears! Look at how well some of the children did....
"It was amazing!" Said Leo
"It was brilliant" Said Amelia
"I loved it" Said Liam
"It was fantastic" Said Ryan
The children have had a great afternoon with Sam's Safari. They brought in a snake, gecko, stick insect, frog, tortoise, hedgehog and a hissing cockroach! The children all got chance to hold or stroke the animals and they learnt all about where they come from and what they eat. It was such an enjoyable and educational afternoon for all the children and they were all very brave and loved every minute of it!
On Monday 5th we became Mini Morris Dancers. Mrs Eling came in with her group of Morris Dancers and taught us a new dance. We got to dress up and use wavers to do the dancing.
The Bumble Bee class have had a great time outdoors today.
We were planting broad beans with Mrs Eling and can't wait to see them grow!
We made some bird feeders with Miss Major and Mr Hogg. The children are excited to bring them home and hang them in their gardens.
The Year 1 children have become detectives this week!
At the beginning of the week we received a letter from the 'Fairytale Police' asking for our help. A creature has gone missing in Fairytale Land and they needed the children to help them find out what it was and then find the creature. The Police sent us a box and clues and the children think its a dragon that has gone missing! We have created character descriptions, made wanted posters and written letters to help the Fairytale Police!
The children have also started making their Dragon Sock Puppets and can't wait to bring them home at the end of the term!
Welcome to Year 1. This is home to the Bumblebees and Caterpillars. This is where you will find information about all our learning and some photographs of the activities we have been doing.
