This week in year 1 we have enjoyed finding out about seaside holidays in the past. We found out about bathing machines, donkey rides and Punch and Judy shows. We also found out that many people would travel by train and for some children it was a rare treat to go to the seaside.

This week we all had a fantastic time at Cosford Air Museum. We took part in lots of activities.
One activity we did was the 4D experience, it was very exciting. Water sprayed in our faces, the seats moved and we were in a fast and exhilarating race.
We also completed lots of activities to do with Gravity and Air Resistance in the Fun and Flight section of the museum!
In addition, we got to look around a range of different planes and aircraft. We had lots of different planes to look for on our activity sheet.
All of us went to the airport to; we had to check in our luggage, have our passport checked and go through security checks to check for any metal.
We also went inside the aeroplane and had to role-play being cabin crew.

We have finished an extremely short and busy half term with our Easter celebrations....
We were joined by many parents this morning when we had our Easter Bonnet Parade. Some of the bonnets and hats were outstanding and what's more everyone joined in!
Year 1 children also enjoyed themselves searching our beautiful grounds for small plastic eggs that they then exchanged for real chocolate eggs! Yummy!!
Best wishes for a lovely Easter break to all our children and their families.

Last week Year 1 were visited by Mike from Everything Dinosaur.
They were able to get really close and handle many exciting fossils and learnt much about dinosaurs from an expert!
Did you know that although an Ankylosaurus was huge, his brain was only the size of a child's fist? Here the children try their fissts for size inside the skull of an Ankylosaurus!
Yes, he was so big that seven children could stand within his tummy!
As you can imagine the children were very enthusiastic and we really feel that this "hands on" visit was beneficial to their learning.
Of course everyone likes to try and roar as loudly as a dinosaur!

This week year one enjoyed visiting the new Phiz Lab. We found it very exciting and enjoyed investigating all of the different resources we could find.
We found out about the life cycle of a frog and we could talk about the different stages.
We are also enjoying writing our very own dinosaur adventure stories. Our teachers can’t wait to see the finished stories!

This week in Literacy we have launched our new topic of ‘Dinosaurs’.
We have been using our ‘Talk for Writing’ actions to learn a lot of new facts about dinosaurs. Did you know that some of the tallest dinosaurs were over 15 metres tall?
In maths we have been exploring the number 20 using a lot of resources. We have represented the number in a range of different ways, discovered what times tables it appears in and explored many number facts.
We hope you all had a lovely Christmas and Happy New Year to you all.
Just a reminder that Year 1 swimming days are as follows.
1AG – Thursdays.

In maths we used a range of apparatus from our maths boxes to test whether the number sentences and word problems were true or false. We felt like teachers checking the work and found it fun.

This week in Literacy we have been writing some recounts of Barnaby Bears trip to Paris. We didn’t like the sound of eating frogs legs but decided we would like to go to the Eifel tower.
In Maths we have been halving numbers by sharing into 2 groups and have been counting in lots of 2’s, 5’s and 10s.
