We have been learning about Monday and the value of different coins. Some of our children worked in pairs to sort the coins into groups based on their values. 
  
We really went all out on Friday for Sports relief. We even had the Jamaican flag on a bow. It was a bright classroom in Class 1!
 

February 2020

In French this week, Class 1 began learning and practising to recognise and say the numbers 1-6.
We listened to the teacher say the numbers in French and then we chose the number we thought it was and repeated saying it in French ourselves.
Muhammed did really well recognising his numbers 1-6 and was very fluent in his French.
Alby and Hamza worked together to find the correct number and after Class Harrison was able to tell me that he knew 7 in French is Sept.

Class 1 had an amazing morning with their parents getting active with warm up games and then working in teams to score points. It was great fun for all and competition was high but the children showed fantastic sportsmanship throughout the morning. They represented our school amazingly! Well done Class 1!

  

In science this week we have been putting down our knowledge of materials by looking at a number of objects and thinking of scientific words that we could use to describe how they felt.
We also discussed what materials we knew about already before we begin to learn about which material we think would be best for a space suit.
Look out for our experiments to see what we find out!

  

Today we had our inspiration day to launch our Paddington's space mission topic.
We helped Paddington go to the moon by making rockets and testing how far they would go.
Liam decided his rocket would go the furthest because it had less tissue paper which made it lighter.
He was correct in his prediction! Well done Liam.
We did a space dance with Paddington on the moon and in the afternoon had tickly fun making footprint alien paintings. It was messy! What a great day we had!

 In science we went for a nature walk to look for signs of Summer and Autumn noticing that Summer was ending and Autumn was beginning to show.

Class 1 had a lovely day learning all about Road Safety and how we can keep ourselves safe when crossing the road. We learnt what a Lollypop person would do to help us, how we can hold hands with a grown up when crossing the road and we even learnt a song to help us remember what to do when we cross the road. 

  

 

November 2018

Remembrance day was a lovely day for Class 1. We were all very excited to make our poppies to display outside of school ready for our Remembrance day in school. On the day we made beautiful Flanders fields pictures using masking tape, paint and poppies. We also wrote our own instructions about how to make a poppy biscuit and then in the afternoon followed them to make our own biscuits. Yummy! It was a lovely day to remember those who gave their lives for us. Thank you!

  

 

 

October 2018

In science we have been exploring our senses including our sense of touch to see if we can figure out what something is by feeling items and not looking at them. This helped us understand that our sense of touch helps us understand the world around us. 

Congratulations to our newly elected school councillors!

 

In our English we have been learning all about instructions. We spent some time following written instructions to make different craft items such as a paper plate fish.

Year 1 were taken back in time and visited a Victorian school where they were taught by a Victorian teacher, in a Victorian classroom, whilst wearing Victorian clothes. They were given a short Maths and English lesson and were even required to write on a slate board. The children were then able to explore the Victorian town and experience what life was like for a Victorian child.

  

 

 

 

 

Spring Term

January 2017

 One of Wolverhampton's Lollipop Ladies volunteered to help show children in Reception and Year 1 how to cross the road safely. The children then took it in turns to show each other how to cross the road.

 

 

Autumn Term

  Children In Need

In science we have also been looking at materials and their properties. This week we have sorted materials according to their properties. When discussing the properties we have been using our scientific language. Angel- 'this glass is see through. We can call it transparent'.   

  

In year 1 our homework project this half term was to build a waterproof boat to rescue Grandpa pig. Everybody has been very busy building and testing their creations.

 

In DT we have been learning how to prepare food safely and hygienically. This week we prepared salads and chopped the vegetables using taught grips such as 'the claw' and 'the bridge'. We really enjoyed tasting what we made, all our hard work made it taste even more delicious.

  

 As part of our learning about black history month we learnt about great sportsmen. We then painted a portrait of Muhammed Ali using skills from our art topic.

 

As part of remembrance day we created poppies using different drawing techniques. we found that 'dotting' was a really effective method.
