This week in Year 1 we have been applying our new sound, oi – spoil the boy, in reading and writing. Take a look at some of our sentences.
Having learnt all about the classic traditional tale Goldilocks; the children have had great fun innovating their own version by adding interesting adjectives and by changing the characters. We cannot wait to read the final versions next week. It was also fantastic to see 1B perform the story in our Learner of the Week assembly.
Year 1 are currently learning rugby skills in PE. This week, we have learned that the top and bottom of the ball are called the ‘ears’ and the middle of the ball is called the ‘belly’. We also learned that we need to hold the rugby ball with both hands around the belly. We played Scarecrow Tig but using a rugby ball; it was lovely to see the children then playing this at lunch time with their friends.
In equal measures of delight and disgust, Year 1 got busy making and tasting porridge this week! Lots of describing the porridge followed as we got stuck into our new Talk for Writing module ‘Goldilocks and the Three Bears’.
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…
Today Year 1 took part in an exciting drama workshop based on the Great Fire of London. First, the children warmed up with a variety of dance and drama activties and then travelled back in time in their time machine to imagine what life was like during the fire. They pretended to walk the streets of London, dodging fire balls and avoiding the flames.
Finally they recreated the fire with materials and movement, starting small and then building the intensity before letting the fire die out.
Over the past few weeks, Year 1 have been learning to story Where the Wild Things Are and then using this to help us write our own journey stories, focusing on the action in the story. We are thrilled to share some of our stories from across Year 1…
This week, as part of our Anti-Bullying campaign in school, we have had our annual picket. Year 1 children made posters against bullying and held a picket around the field. All that could be heard for miles was our chant “Kind Words, Kind Hands, Kind Hearts!”
It is challenge time for Year 1! Mr Kay has signed all Year 1 children up to Numbots and given us a very special task – to celebrate Maths Week.
Your challenge is to play Numbots for 30 minutes each day. Can you rise to the occasion? Prizes will be awarded at the end of the week.
