Five Senses

This week in science we have been investigating our senses. We have  enjoyed smelling, tasting, touching and hearing lots of different things.

We especially enjoyed guessing which pot contained the scent of lime and which plate contained the salt and vinegar crisps.

The Gruffalo

This week we have enjoyed creating story plans to retell the story of The Gruffalo. We also used lots of actions to help us and used different expressions for the different characters.

We have solved lots of problems this week in maths finding one more and one less and have enjoyed using a range of resources to help us.

During our topic lesson, we enjoyed sharing our holiday photos and locating our destinations on a world map.

Welcome Back Year 1

Welcome back everyone, we hope you all had a lovely summer.

All the Year 1 children have had a fantastic start to the year! This week we have enjoyed looking at the Paralympics and learning all about the events and the athletes. 

We have also been into the hall to listen to some carnival music and have learnt some moves to perform.

Life Caravan

User Rating:  / 1

Today we enjoyed going into the Life Caravan to learn all about how to keep our bodies healthy. We loved meeting Gerald the giraffe and he taught us lots of things. We found out that breakfast is really important to give us energy and that we should try to eat at least 5 portions of a variety of fruit and vegetables every day because they provide lots of vitamins, minerals and fibre which our bodies need to function properly.

We also found out that we should try to avoid eating too many sweets, cakes and biscuits because too many sugary foods and drinks can contribute to tooth decay.

In our P.E lesson we took part in a skipping activity! Some of us we really good but some of us found skipping quite tricky. We are going to keep persevering with skipping this week.

We are looking forward to more exciting activities during our Health Week.

Just a reminder that the dance show will be on the 8th July.

Exploring Habitats

User Rating:  / 2

This week we were really lucky to have a visit from a lady called Lucy who works for a charity called the RSPB. We were considering how our school grounds are an excellent habitat for a lot of wildlife, and how we could possibly improve the habitats for the creatures who live there.

We used special equipment and techniques to carefully collect a range of minibeasts.

obseving carefully

Our special pots had a magnifyer on the top so that we could see lots of detail and, with the help of an identification sheet, we were able to name the minibeasts we found.

Lucy showed us some really good places where we would find lots of minibeasts... There were lots of Leopard slugs under this slab!

Of course we already have an excellent "Minibeast hotel!"

After spreading out a white sheet, Lucy shook a tree and we found that many minibeasts dropped down and we could see them easily!

We learned such a lot about the minibeasts that our school grounds provide a habitat for. We will keep looking!

Seaside in the past

User Rating:  / 2

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.

Cosford Air Museum

User Rating:  / 1

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.Cosford2Blog Cosfordcosford4cosford6

Fun with World Book Day

Year 1 have joined in with the whole school today in celebrating World Book Day. We have made this year's celebrations extra special by marking what would have been the 100th birthday of one of our favourite children's authors, Roald Dahl.

We have enjoyed a Dressing Up Parade in Foundation Key Stage and Key Stage 1, shared books with Year 5 and taken part in many World Book Day activities.

Everything Dinosaur

User Rating:  / 2

Last week Year 1 were visited by Mike  from Everything Dinosaur.

Skull sm

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!

Tummy sm

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!
