WW2 Field Hospital

We had such great learning experiences today. We made a map to get to Bethesda then explored the church before moving the chairs around to make beds for hospital patients. Back in class we made a 3D model of the building and coloured a map and key to show what each room could be.

maths

Year 1 have been working hard in maths this week using the symbols + and = to write and solve number sentences.

We’ve also been making our own number lines and thinking where the numbers we chose would go.

Funnybones

Year 1 are currently reading Funnybones by Janet & Allan Ahlberg. Today the children took up the challenge to make a skeleton in one of the areas in the classroom. The results were amazing and more importantly they practised lots of different skills.

Design Technology

This week in school we did design technology linked to our history learning about the Wright brothers first aircraft flight in 1903. We all made our own moving picture using a slider mechanism. If was a bit tricky in places but everyone got a final picture they were proud of!

They were all so fabulous we couldn’t decide whose should go on the website! Ask us about them

Road safety

Road safety training.
We had a great afternoon on Thursday learning about road safety in year 1.  We learnt the 4 important rules:
1-stop. 2- look. 3-listen. 4-think.
Then we put this into practise when we crossed roads around our school.  Back in the classroom we talked about safe places to cross and looked at different types of crossing. At the end of the day we all got a certificate to say we a experts at crossing the road!
