Year 1L 2021
Over the past two weeks, Year 1 have been very busy learning and having fun. We have been developing our fine motor skills. This is to help improve our handwriting, by cutting free dinosaurs and using tweezers to grab pasta shells. We used a timer to see who could get the most pasta in a minute!
We have been painting and making junk models in our creative area.
We have used our Phonics Factory Station to practice reading nonsense words and writing graphemes in sand.
In Science, we have been sorting animals into categories of Carnivores, Herbivores and Omnivores and this week have been identifying different types of trees. We went into the Woodland Garden and Mrs Brannan wowed us with her tree knowledge!
In English, we started a new book " What the Sea Saw" and have been using it as inspiration to write lists of what we would take to the beach and it has helped us to use suffixes in our writing.
Last week we also learnt about St. George's Day and enjoyed painting flags and colouring in dragon pictures.
After a busy few weeks, we are looking forward to a nice bank holiday weekend!
In Year 1,
we learnt about the 1980's.
We learnt about the different fashions
and it was interesting to learn that some
of these fashions are still popular today.
We learnt some 1980's dances such as
the Birdie dance and Superman.
We then enjoyed making a 1980's style dessert which was a trifle and took them home to enjoy! We learnt so much about the 1980's and could not believe some of our teachers were born in the 80's - we thought they were much younger!!!
