1C's trip to the Black Country Museum
We have been looking at toys past and present and growing this half term so we decided to have a teddy bears picnic. We created a heathy and balanced plate of food and made our own sandwiches. Then we ate our food with our teddy bears.
We became sense detectives. We discussed our five senses and had to use one sense at a time to investigate different smells, tastes, noises and textures.
We went into the woods to look at different habitats. When we were there we made the habitats for the characters in our story. Take a look at our logpile house for the snake, our treetop house for the owl and our underground house for the fox.
Year 1 had a visit from a mystery character. He left behind lots of mess in our classrooms, along with instructions on how to make Gruffalo Crumble and The Gruffalo story book. We read the story and used our detective skills and decided that it must have been the mouse from our story that left all the mess.
In year one we have started learning about time. So far we have learned; the days of the weeks, the months of the year and how to tell o'clock times. Take a look at some of our wonderful learning.
1C have worked really hard to complete some fabulous pieces of homework. Here is our work on All about me and houses.
We used cubes to find number bonds to 10.
We looked at lots of different words and used our phonics to read the words. Then we decided which words were important to our story. We used these words to create a word bank to help us spell them when we do our writing.
Take a look at some of our English work. We labelled some of the nouns from our story and then used these words to make sentences.
During our science and DT lessons we looked at the properties of different materials and talked about why the brick house was the strongest house in our story. Then we used straws, sticks and bricks to make houses.We decided that not only was brick the strongest material to use to build a house but it was also the easiest.
We came into school one day and found bricks, sticks and straw left outside our classrooms, whilst we were investigating the materials we also found that they had left behind a book; The Three Little Pigs for our new topic.
We went on a bear hunt!
We made sensory boxes for each part of We're Going on a Bear Hunt
We made collages and maps of We're Going on a Bear Hunt
