During our science lesson last week the children chose either a ‘Giant sunflower’ or a ‘Little Leo sunflower’ seed to plant. When we arrived in class on Monday we noticed that some of them had started to grow. We will be keeping sunflower diaries to help us observe the changes over the next few weeks.
Can you write some instructions to explain how to plant a seed year 1?
This week in maths we have been learning about halves and quarters.
Which pictures show half of a rectangle? Explain yours answer.
Thank you to those who were able to attend the celebration of our work in the Art Studio. If you were not able to make it here are some photos of our work based around the book Augustus and His Smile.
We listened to some riddles about sea creatures a clue at a time and used these clues to discuss in our learning buddies what the creature could be and write down our ideas.
We had a go at making observational drawings of sea creatures. We gave each other feedback and then made a second draft to help us improve our picture. Some of us did a third and fourth draft!
We used a pencil to transfer our pictures to poly board ready for printing.
We used rollers to apply the ink to the board and worked collaboratively to press the board onto the paper.
This week we have been in the Art Studio working with Mrs Johnston. We have been introduced to some clues about a story.
We had a go at creating our own stories.
We even told our stories to our friends.
The children enjoyed working with pupils from Allerton High on a rocket experiment.
Year 1 had a fantastic trip to Tropical World last week. A big thank you to our parent volunteers for coming too!
