Today in science we made rain gauges and placed them around the school garden. We cannot wait to observe how much water they collect over the next few weeks.
We wore odd socks with pride today to show how unique we are!
Today in Geography year 1 have been exploring a range of maps including maps of Stoke-On-Trent, the United Kingdom and world maps. The children then made their own map for Pudsey bear to follow. He had maps to visit the Queen, Stoke-On-Trent and Poland!
In design and technology this week year 1 have been trying different fruits to decide what they do and don’t like in preparation for making our own pancake topping.
What an eventful week we have had in Year 1. We were surprised with a visit from a very naughty Pea on Tuesday. He made a terrible mess in the classroom. We decided to write notes to leave around the classroom to give him ideas of ways he could be better. We were delighted to find that he had moved all of our faces to yellow and said sorry this morning! We think the pea should now be called “the good pea”.
Year 1 braved the strong winds yesterday to plant bulbs in our outdoor area as part of our science topic. We cannot wait to watch them grow into beautiful flowers in Spring time to help us learn about the parts of a plant.
Poppy came into school this morning with a lovely picture to show Miss Ridgway. She had drawn a picture of a garden with common wild plants. She said there are “dandelions” and “daisies”. Fantastic work Poppy. 🌸🌺
Today we have taken full advantage of the glorious weather in our science lesson. We learnt about different wild plants and went on a hunt around our school grounds. Afterwards we drew lovely pictures of what we saw.
Year 1 have learnt about Esafey today. We talked about how we can follow the SMART rules to keep safe online and how we must speak to an adult if we are unsure about anything! Some of the children then had a turn at logging onto the Ipad. We can’t wait to continue this next week!
