YEAR ONE GET DOWN WITH THE BATTLE ROPES
YEAR ONE GET DOWN WITH THE BATTLE ROPES
Today we were visited by Mrs Clem who is a nurse in our local community. We got to ask her lots of question s about her job. She gave us lots of advice on how to stay healthy and even showed us how to put on bandages. What a fantastic afternoon.
Today we discovered how wheels are attached to vehicles.
We explored lots of different wheeled items and discovered that there was an axle and an axle holder that allowed the wheels to spin.
We used card, straws and masking tape to create our own models. This was the first step on the road to creating our own ambulances!!
We loved working together. Team work makes the dream work!!
The Year 1 children have been visiting North Herts College over the passed few weeks to learn about plants. They enjoyed planting seedlings and creating a potato head to grow cress in. They listened to stories and got to taste different foods that the college students had grown! What a treat!
We all absolutely loved geography week! All the children in year 1 were able to visit different classes and learn about Australia, France, Egypt and Mexico.
As a special treat, Christina from the music service, came in and taught us an Australian bush song.
On Wednesday, Year 1 went out and learnt how to light a fire. The children were given a safety talk about how campers might prepare to build a fire, the equipment they would need to help them do this and then they were then showed how to light one. We then cooked marshmallows on the fire and enjoyed some hot chocolate made by Mr Steedman. We are now looking forward to pitching tets with the children next week!
Welcome to all the parents of Elm class, to our first school blog of the new school year. The children have done remarkably well settling in to their new environment and new routines. Both Mr Mari and Mr Steedman have been been really impressed by the way in which the children have taken it in their stride and really engaged in their learning this week. We have been doing lots of fun activities in Maths, when comparing numbers up to 10 and also Literacy where we have been on "Bear hunt" around the school grounds. In addition to this we have also learnt how to build a campfire as well as enjoying Mr Steedmans lovely hot chocolate and Mr Mari's carefully roasted marshmallows.
The Year 1 children have been busy this week creating some amazing fish artwork. We have developed our drawing and sketching, used water colours and explored different techniques for shading. Look forward to seeing the results!
We had a GREAT science lesson on Friday! Our topic is Looking at animals, and we were asked to create either a reptile or an amphibian out of clay. It was VERY messy but our models look fantastic. We cant wait to take them home.
Oh my goodness! We came into school today to find that a pirate had left his locked treasure chest in our class. We had to follow the clues by working out the riddles which finally led us to the key.
When we opened up the chest it was filled with gleaming shiny coins. What an exciting way to start our new topic!
Bottoms, burps and body parts!
Year 1 children have been taste testing healthy foods this week. We are ready to design and cook a healthy dinner as part of our new topic.
A massive thank you to all the parents that attended the Year 1 fantastic finish for our Space topic last week. We all enjoyed a fun packed afternoon creating some amazing space crafts including rockets that blasted off into the air, alien hats and some brilliant flying saucers. The children always absolutely love these afternoons working alongside their families!
