We were able to mix the primary colours blue and yellow to make different shades of green.
The children loved playing with the replica Victorian toys!
Shapes are everywhere!
We built towers using 3D shapes and used the shape names to describe the towers. We used the flat faces to make strong towers.
We made 2D shapes using human geoboards and geoboards. We were able to sort the shapes and explain how we had sorted them and we found the odd one out.
New and Old Toys
The children enjoyed looking at their toys.
We then looked at Mrs Johnson’s Tiny Tears and Mrs Martin’s teddy. Mrs Laybourne brought her teddy in too. They were very old!
We looked at Mrs Laybourne’s Lego set and realised it hadn’t changed from the Lego today!
One of the children brought in a beautiful porcelain doll which was 90 years old! We were very careful with it!
Farmer Pete saw 14 legs in the field but he didn’t know how many belonged to the sheep and how many belonged to the hens.
The children found out the possibilities using lolly sticks for legs and pom poms, bricks and counters for bodies. We found different possibilities!
We enjoyed printing with Lego using primary colours or we mixed our own secondary colours.
We can represent teen numbers using tens and ones and on the ten frames.
We designed, made and evaluated our moving pictures. We used either a slider or a lever to make our moving Santa Christmas card.
We told the story of Christmas to our friends and family. We were amazing!
We have been busy with the subtraction fact families in maths this week. We used haribos and chews as parts so we could find the whole. We then worked out our 4 subtraction families!
Winter has arrived!
We compared our Autumn photo with the new Winter photo to look for the changes in our clothing, the weather and the deciduous trees in the playground. There were lots of changes in the seasons.
We can describe the properties of the materials using our super science words! We then sorted the objects using the given properties.
We found all of the pairs of numbers that totalled 10 with the numicon and played the game ,Hit the button, on the iPad. We tried to beat our score!
What a busy week full of different activities!
We have been exploring how to join paper together using tape, glue and split pins in DT, We also practised our cutting skills and folding paper in preparation for our DT project, Levers and sliders.
In maths we have been finding all of the pairs of numbers that total 10 and found the pairs using numicon with our friend.
This week, we have retold the story of the Three Little Pigs in groups using our straw puppets.
Some children in phonics have been learning the different ways to spell the /igh/ sound.
The children loved making their spotty biscuits on Children in Need day!
We love science!
Year 1 have been on a material hunt outside. We found objects made from different materials.
We also explored each object and then sorted the objects into their material hoop. We can name the material that the object is made from and use scientific words to describe them. Year 1 also found out that some materials are man made and some are natural materials.
The witch came to visit on Hallowe’en!
We followed the magic potion spell and look what happened when we said the magic words!
Hocus pocus ,bubble and boil!
We really enjoyed exploring our local area as part of our geography topic, Where we Live. We learned about the pinfold and visited the Ryton War memorial. We saw lots of different types of houses.
We then made our own group maps of our local area.
We have settled so well into Year 1 and 2.
In maths we have been solving first, then and now problems using our ten frames.
We loved mixing secondary colours from the primary colours to print with our Autumn leaves.
Our trip to the forest was amazing with Mrs Goodwin from Forest Adventurers, even in the rain! The fire was super and we learned how to keep safe around fire. We loved eating our treats too!
We listened to music from Debussy about the sea and created a collaborative piece of art using line and mark making. We drew waves and the sea. We used pencils, pastels, oil pastels and felt tip pens.
We have been learning about the different animal groups and we sorted the animals into mammals, reptiles,amphibians, birds or fish.
In phonics some children have been finding out the different ways to represent the /ee/ sound.
In maths we have been adding two numbers together and representing on a whole part model. We then introduced the + and = signs to record our number sentences. We love using our rekenreks in maths!
In computing, we have been learning about algorithms and decomposition. We worked in pairs to build models and create precise instructions for our partner.
An algorithm is a precise set of instructions.
Decomposition is the process of breaking down a task into smaller parts.
We also had fun on Thursday with Tracey from Hoopstarz! We are all getting better at hula hooping now. We’ll be practising in the playground!
We made our own number lines in the playground!
We have been finding the pulse or beat in the music. We are now clapping the rhythm of the music. Listen to us singing the same song but clapping the pulse then the rhythm. We have so much fun in our weekly music lesson!
We loved our library session this week. We looked at the fiction and non fiction books and chose our favourite to take home.
Year 1 had a great time in the forest looking for signs of Autumn. We found leaves of all different colours and needed our coats on as it was cold!
