This week we are retelling the story of ‘The Ugly Duckling’. Today we worked in groups to order the story. After that we took turns to retell the story to each other.
Last week the first group in Year 1 started their Forest School adventure. As you can see they are thoroughly enjoying the experience!
This half term we have been looking at the work of an artist called Andy Goldsworthy. He uses nature to make his art sculptures. Today we went into the woodland area to make our own Andy Goldsworthy sculptures. Fantastic art work Year 1!
Today Year 1 have been using the iPads to investigate how the dinosaurs became extinct. We used a website to look at different theories, then we presented our findings to the class.
Today in maths we have been solving addition and subtraction sums. We had to work out the sum and decided if the answers were greater than or less than another sum. If the sum was incorrect we were allowed to move two number cards to make the sum correct. Great teamwork Year 1, well done!
As part of ‘Children’s mental health week’ we talked about how to keep our body and our mind healthy. We talked about feelings and watched some clips from ‘Inside Out’. After we had watched the clips we discussed how the character felt and what she did, we also thought of ways the character could stay calm and not get upset in future.
Today we found out about a famous fossil hunter ‘Mary Anning’. We made our own dinosaur skeleton pictures. We drew an outline and used pasta to make our skeleton. Great work Year 1!
Today is Chinese New Year. To celebrate Year 1 practised acting out the story of Chinese New Year. Year 1 were fantastic and acted out the story really well!
