We have been reading "10 Things I Can Do To Help My World".
In this book, we learnt about how we can help our local community and our planet.
We decided to plant some potatoes in The Hive and then write instructions to tell someone else how to plant seeds.
Here's what we did:
First dig a hole.
Then, put the potato in the hole.
Next, cover it with soil.
After that put a stick in the soil to mark where the potatoes are.
Finally, water it.
To celebrate what would have been Captain Tom Moore's 101st Birthday we decided to do our own 100 challenges. We worked in groups to run the race track 100 times, throw 100 bean bags into a hoop and do 100 star jumps. It was great fun and we really enjoyed getting our hearts beating!
Year 1 went on a sigh-seeing tour of our local area, Manningham.
We followed a planned route on a map and located historical buildings in our area.
We saw The Old Police Station, Lister Mill, The Manor House, The Children's Hospital and Nurses Quarters, the Old Cottages and St Paul's Church.
We have been learning about The Great Fire of London. We decided to make our own houses and set one on fire so that we could see just how the fire spread. We even had the wind helping us spread the fire just like when the real fire happened. We were amazed after just setting ONE house on fire how quickly it spread across all the houses. We really enjoyed watching them burn down.
Wednesday 16th December was Christmas Jumper Day, Christmas Crafts Day and Christmas Lunch! Have a look at all our festive fun...
As part of Year 1s Science topic, we visited The Hive to investigate what creatures lived in the soil and under rocks and wood piles. Here's what we discovered.
Ahlberg and Donaldson class have been finding out about Remembrance Day. We watched a CBeebies animation, read a story called Where the Poppies Now Grow about 2 friends called Ben and Ray who grew up to be soldiers in The Great War and found out why people wear poppies to remember soldiers who died in battle.
We painted poppies onto pebbles to place on soldiers graves as part of the veteran's charity Project Nova initiative for people in Bradford to paint a poppy on a pebble and place it on a war memorial or headstone of a veteran to mark this year’s Remembrance Day.
To celebrate the end of Autumn 1 we did lots of activities with pumpkins. We carved scary faces into the pumpkins to make Halloween lanterns, created paper pumpkin faces, roasted the seeds from inside and made pumpin soup. Most of us thought the seeds and soup were delicious. We read the story Winnie's Amazing Pumpkin with our spooky halloween lanterns lit.
This week in maths we have been exploring addition fact families.
