Sam's Safari!

We were so luck to have the wonderful Sam from Sam's Safari come and visit Year 1 today. We had such an amazing time learning about all the different animals - even Holiday the Armadillo!  See if you can spot Checkers the snake...Molly the polecat...Sally the snail... I can't believe how brave we all were!

Survival of the Fittest!

 

We use the TASC wheel to help us answer the question 'Can Sunny survive the Arctic?' After discussing and imagining what it would be like in the Arctic, we compared the animal bodies of Sunny the meerkat with a penguin. We thought of ways to keep him warm and listed our ideas before choosing the best idea, which was to make Sunny a scarf. Using our Design and Technology skills we created Sunny a scarf. We found out that a scraf would not be enough to help Sunny survive in the Arctic because his body is not made to survive in a cold place and his favourite food; scorpions will not be available for him to eat. Look at how creative we have been!

Book Fair!

Don't forget the Book Fair is coming to school on the 8th of December in the library!

Counting in 2's...
This week we have been counting in 2's up to 20. We have loved getting practical and hands on counting different pairs of items, stressing each even number as we count.

I like...

In PSHE we have been looking at things we like and dislike. It's OK for us to like something that someone else doesn't, it's all part and parcel of being different!  We tried lots of different foods and Miss Gibbins and Miss Batool were quite surprised how much we liked!!

 

We tried:

Salt and vinegar crisps

Olives

Chocolate

Cheese

Celery

Lemon

e-Safety

It is really important that we learn all about staying safe on the internet and have been thinking about all sorts of different ways we can do that. Hector and his friends helped us to think about what information and personal details we can share over the internet - have a look and see what you think!

 

We have also been looking at rules we have elsewhere...at school...in the Mosque...at the supermarket...in the car...

 

These rules are there to help us stay safe in the real world, and our e-Safety rules help us to stay safe in the virtual world!

Weather and Seasons

For our topic we will be looking at hot and cold places around the world... so where better place to start than home?! We have been looking at seasons and seasonal weather in the UK, thinking about how the weather changes throughout each season.

Meerkat Mail!

This half term we are looking at a new topic and following the story of Sunny the Meerkat! He sets off on his travels to find somewhere new to live...I wonder if you can tell your mums and dads what happens to Sunny in each place he visits?

I'll huff and I'll puff and I'll...

 

We used the TASC wheel to help us answer the question 'What materials would make a strong and waterproof house for the Three Little Pigs' We collated our ideas and chose the best idea based on our knowledge of strong and waterproof materials, from our previous experiments. We collaborated to make the houses using materials such as cardboard boxes, plastic bags and metal foil. Then we tested them to see if the houses were strong and waterproof. We had great fun trying to find out who's house was strong and waterproof!

Super Subtraction

We have been really persevering to use subtraction in our maths learning; thinking about how we take away. We started using objects and cubes to help us know what to do.

Jungle Dance!

In PE we have been working all half term on learning a jungle dance. We have been thinking about different ways of moving our bodies and how we feel after we have exercised. Hope you like our moves!

 

Adjectives

In our Literacy learning we have been trying to use adjectives to make our sentences more exciting! These are some of the adjectives and sentences we have been writing.

Finding Familiar Places on a Map

We used the iPads and Google Earth to try and find some local places in Manningham.  We had a look at Miriam Lord and tried tgo see if we could find our houses from there, thinking about the way we walk to school.  We also found Hanfia Mosque, Morrisons and Lister Park.

Adding

 

Year 1 have been using objects to add by combining two groups. We discussed what the add (+) and equals (=) symbols meant.

Art

 

We created our own printing block by arranging different styles of pasta in a pattern. We had great fun getting creative!

 

At the Den 

 

As part of our Science topic on materials we discussed different properties of materials. We made links to the story 'The Three Little Pigs' and our materials knowledge to build a strong and waterproof house at The Den. Luckily some of us manage to survive the attack from the Big Bad Wolf!

 

 

 

Class Rules

 

Year 1 discussed what rules are and why we have them. We collaborated to create some classroom rules and promised to always follow them.

Fair and Unfair - 04.10.17

 

We talked about what is meant by the words 'fair' and 'unfair' and how we behave can affect other people in a negative or positive way. We thought about some scenarios and had to decide if they were fair or unfair.
