The children had an amazing experience on Tuesday when they attended the food tasting session. They enjoyed the opportunity of tasting banana smoothie
freshly made in front of them! They also learnt about using different fruits to make smoothie and were reminded about the importance of exercise and having 5 a day of fruits and vegetables.
Hello everybody! It has been a very busy month! In 1EG we have been very busy creating our Pumpkin Soup balloons! We used a variety of different resources such as paint, glue, tissue paper, paper and markers to make remarkable paper mache sculptures. We will be able to show them to you soon!
In Maths, we have been learning about money. We used British coins to “buy” things and give change. This week we are going to practise multiplication.
Well done to Laila, Kelly, Toby, Freddie, Billy, Krrish, Aimee, Jorja, Shannia and Jacob for doing their homework getting a lot of points in Mathletics! Keep up the good work!
The children had an amazing experience on Monday when they attended the Science in a Suitcase Workshop. They enjoyed the opportunity to explore different Science equipment and experiments. They discovered that no matter the shape that they used to make bubbles, it will always come out round!
The children returned to class excited. Then they created their posters with interesting titles about what they had learnt from the workshop.
These posters will be sent off for a poster competition as part of Celebrating Science Week. Watch the space!
Since we have been back after Christmas we have been really busy. Things in 1RJ have changed! The classroom has new displays and a new role play area. We have been learning about traditional tales. To help us learn them and to write about them we have used Pie Corbets ideas. We can all tell a story with actions. Last week we learnt the story of Little Red Riding Hood. Last week we had a Winnie the Pooh lunch and afternoon. It was a special lunch and in the afternoon parents came in to work with us on activities.
Well, our final week of the first half term started with a science lesson in which we learnt what herbivores, carnivores and omnivores eat. Some of us were surprised to find out what different animals eat. This week we were all put to the test with remembering moves for our Royal Opera House dance. We are really enjoying this - we can’t wait to put the different parts of the dance together!
We have also been donating food to the local food shelter and learning about Harvest. We learnt the song ‘Harvest Samba’ with the rest of key stage one and performed this at the Harvest Festival celebration on Friday afternoon.
Finally this week we started to look at our new central idea for next half term’s Unit of Enquiry. We got to piece jigsaws back together and found that the images were of different celebrations, then we used these to think about our own questions and things we are curious about.
We are looking forward to continuing our learning next half term.
1AA children had a fantastic visit to the local library. They enjoyed the opportunity to explore, choosing reading books from different genres and learning about people in our community. Children came back and said they liked the space and the wide variety of books.
