Summer Term Topic - 'Oh I do like to be beside the seaside!'
In English we have been reading a fiction story called 'Beegu'. It was about an alien who crashed landed on Earth and wanted to make friends. Nobody understood poor Beegu until she finally meet some kind children at the local school. We did some drama work acting out the playground scene when Beegu was having fun with the children and a stern looking teacher made her leave. Luckily Beegu found her way home!
In our science lesson this term we have been learning about plants. Did you know that trees are plants too? We went out to the Jubilee Infant Trim Trail to rub the bark of different trees to investigate the variety of textures and patterns on trees.
To celebrate the royal wedding we made our own crowns. All the teachers and children wore royal red, white and blue. We had iced lolly, drinks and proposed a toast to Megan and Prince Harry.
During spring 2 we designed and created our own vehicles. Can you guess what they are?
One of our focus texts this half term was Grace and Family. We enjoyed creating freeze frames of the moment when Grace received two tickets to visit her father in Gambia, Africa. After we created our freeze frames we added some thought tracking.
In one of our history lessons we researched the famous explored James Cook. We located the various places that James Cook visited using a map.
In our maths lessons we have been exploring fractions of objects. Our focus has been halving and quartering. We enjoyed finding one half and one quarter of various food items.
Spring Term 1
For Safer Internet Day, we read the story ‘Digiducks’s BIG Decision’. This story explained to us how you must be kind to others online and should only send nice images of your friends over the internet. Here is a link to the book for you to read-
We created pictures from the story using ‘2Create a Story’ and typed an important moral/message from the story.
Mrs Yems/Wallace and Mrs Agbenorto (Year 1)
In our maths lessons we have been working on position, direction and movement. We explored whole, half, quarter and three quarter turns.
One of the science topics we have been working on is seasonal change. We enjoyed exploring the changes to the outside environment during the autumn season. During our autumn walk we observed that some trees are deciduous and some are evergreen.
In our English lesson we learnt how to follow instructions. We also learnt how to write instructions use time conjunctions. To end our topic of instructions we made a jam sandwich by following instructions. You would have loved them!
