Science

In science we have started to investigate everyday materials. We have looked around the classroom to see if we could find objects made from materials such as wood, plastic, glass, stone, fabric. We got off to a great start identifying lots of items and the materials they were made from.

I wonder if they can carry on their search for items made of different materials at home?

Year 1 Readers

Year 1 have had lots of success in guided reading this week. Every day the groups complete a different activity related to their weekly book. We are reading some difficult texts now. Our teachers are really proud.

Lost and Found

Year 1 have been reading the book “Lost and Found”. We have been getting into character using the ipads and then writing some fantastic speech bubbles. It has been lots of fun pretending to be the characters from the story.

 

 

 

History

This week in history we were finishing of our work on how things have changed in living memory.  We had lots of fun exploring different telephones and how they work.  We used the internet to research how really old telephones looked too. We couldn’t believe how much they have changed.

Teddies

In history we are learning about changes in living memory.  We have looked at teddy bears and how they have changed over the years since our great grandparents were born.  Mrs Dinsdale came in to talk about her daddy’s teddy bear that was bought in 1928.  It is called a Jopi Bear.

 

Welcome LUNA & LEO

Year 1 would like to introduce our class reading buddies Luna and Leo.  Everyday our buddies will go home with a different child to join in with their reading.  Please look after them and return them the following day.

Thank you for your continued support.

leaves

On Wednesday we were looking closely at the autumn leaves using the magnifying glasses. We then carefully used pencil and felt tip to do some fantastic line drawings of the leaves in our sketch books.
