Year 1 have had a great time chopping and preparing fruit and vegetables in DT.
In English we are reading jack and the jelly beanstalk. As an introduction we examined jellybeans by touching and smelling them. We couldn’t eat them because they were magic and we didn’t know what would happen.
We have had lots of fun in gymnastics. We have been learning new shapes and practicing landing off the equipment.
Year 1 have made a great start to their DT topic of Mechanisms. They have made and used sliders to create moving pictures.
In Maths we have been looking at part, part whole models and using counters to find the total. We have also been using these models to find missing parts.
Year 1 enjoyed learning about the artist Frida Carlo. We used her inspiration to draw our own self-portraits in her style.
This week Year 1 have started their new science topic learning about plants. Today they were looking closely and examining some fruit and vegetables that grow on plants and trees. Magnifying glasses were used to help to really see up close the inside of the fruit and veg.
We have some great artists in Year 1. Some of the detailed paintings of the fruit were amazing.
