The DISGUSTING Sandwich in Year 1

This week we have started to learn our new story, The Disgusting Sandwich, and have done some work to deepen our understanding of what we are reading.

First we looked at the settings in the story and made some 3D maps using paper manpulation skills.

Then we went into the cafe and made some beautiful sandwiches… which we then dropped in the sand pit, dipped in the pond, rode over them on scooters and more! Just like in the story.

We then took a walk in our local area, learning some key features of Alwoodley and road safety, as we walked to the… park!

Continents and Oceans of the World!

Over the last two weeks our ACE Geographers have been learning about the different continents and oceans of the world. We have been singing some songs to help us remember the names, as I am sure some of you will have been hearing at home, and been locating them on maps.

World Book Day!

Today at ACE we celebrated World Book Day by dressing up as some of our favourite book characters and sharing some of our favourite stories. We even had a quiz, all about books, that we did this morning to engage Team Ant!

Have a look at some pictures from our celebrations.

A week of Poetry…

For our first week back after the break we have been learning all about Grace Darling. We learnt about her life, why she was and is still such an important person in British history. We then used her heroic actions as inspiration to write our own poems about a stormy sea…
