Year 1 children and staff enjoyed a fantastic day out at Avoncroft Museum. The children had a great time investigating the vast array of buildings at the museum and following a treasure trail around the site. Favourite buildings included the Ice house, Jail, Windmill and Church. Another highlight for the children was finding Doctor Who's TARDIS in the museums collection of telephone boxes.The children also took part in a brick building workshop where they learnt how bricks are made to be uniform and include a frog! (Ask your child all about it!!)

As part of our Science day work we enjoyed a visit from Sustrans. We learnt how energy is needed to turn on lights - Mrs Edmunds supplied the energy by pedalling really fast on the bike!

Children in Year 1 had a fantastic time during Science day. They thoroughly enjoyed working with all the different teachers across the phase and having the chance to get involved with all the Science activities on offer. One of the activities on offer taught the children about the three states of matter; Solids, Liquids and Gases. The children experimented with cornflour gloop, a fantastic substance which is solid whilst moving and a liquid when still, messy but marvellous!!

1EE enjoyed welcoming our friends from Bridge school on Friday. Children and staff came to watch 1EE perform their class assembly based on their work from the Autumn term on Toys. 1EE enjoyed talking to the children and showing them their puppets and sewing work.

Happy New Year!

Children in Year 1 welcomed in the New Year by learning about how New Year is celebrated around the world. We focused on the celebrations in Germany. The children enjoyed playing traditional German games with Mr Worth and were taught to sing Silent Night in German. 1EE enjoyed making a traditional German gift called a Shultute. A Shultute is a traditional gift given to children on their first day of school that is filled with treats and toys.

Science in Year 1

User Rating:  / 0

We have been very busy the last few weeks becoming outstanding scientists. We have completed three different investigations on materials. Our first invesitigation helped Mrs Edmunds find the correct material to wrap a christmas parcel to send to Australia. Our second investigation was very exciting as we had to help Santa's elves find the best material to make Santa a new hat that would keep him warm and DRY! And in our last investigation we had to help Discovery Dog find the best material to wipe Nora Puppy's wee! Yes, everyone thought it was quite amusing except perhaps Discovery Dog. The photo shows a group of Year 1 children testing plastic, paper and fabric to soak up a puddle of liquid.

Pickled onions and chips!

User Rating:  / 0

In September Mrs Hawksworth and Mrs Horne helped Year 1 children to harvest our batch of Shallot onions. After a day of tears from Mrs Horne as she bravely peeled the onions, the children prepared the onions with pickling vinegar and put them to one side in the classrooms where they have sat safely for the past few months. Last week the children got to test the fruits of their labour by enjoying an afternoon treat of pickled onions and chips! The children enjoyed the onions (and particularly enjoyed the chips) so all the hard work was well worth it. A handful of the children's pickled onion jars will be on sale at the Christmas Fayre so keep your eyes peeled (not you Mrs Horne!!) for these sort after items.

Welcome to our Toy Museum!

Children from Year 1 were thrilled to show Miss Sartori and children from Reception around our class Toy Museum. The children had worked in groups to set the classroom up with displays of toys from the 1960's, 1870's and modern times. Another group of children discussed how teddy bears had changed since they became popular in the Victorian times. The children's favourite display was made up of toys brought in from home as supplied by some very helpful Grandparents. The children were able to share metal rocking horses, five stones, metal cars, early plastic dolls and children's books from the 1940's.


Toys!

Year 1 have had a brillant time in our first week back to school. We have had lots to talk about with our new topic TOYS! We especially enjoyed trying out some playground toys and games from the past such as hopscotch, skipping, marbles, hoops, ball and cup, ring games, yo,yo's and lots more... We can't wait to find out what our Parents and Grandparents played with when they were children.
