Bond and problems06-12-2019 | 12:17:25 | No Comments

This week in maths we have been focusing on our number bonds to 10. We began by making the number 10 using as many different pieces of apparatus as possible. Then we have worked in pairs to solve number problems involving bonds to 10 too. We found it was important to read the question carefully and think hard about what the question was asking. We also learned that you can never give up!

Science experiments!03-12-2019 | 16:04:11 | No Comments

Today, Year 1 began trying to think like scientists. We learned that science is learning and discovering things about the world we live in and we tried to create our own scientific questions. We then had to try to answer the question of: Can you blow a small ball of paper into an empty bottle? We were amazed to discover that you can’t and that the empty bottle was in fact full of air!

Today, Year 1 enjoyed some winter sunshine during their Forest School session. We played ‘Stuck in the Mud’, ‘Sleeping Bear’ and collected some delicate little twigs to help us try to create some stick snowflakes in our next session. A super afternoon Year 1!

Perfect Pizza02-12-2019 | 14:36:07 | No Comments

Last week, in English we thought about instruction writing. After learning about imperative verbs, we wrote our own instructions and created recipes for the perfect pizza. We then set about making the pizzas to see if our recipes were really recipes for success. They were yummy!

On Thursday, 1KB enjoyed a visit from their first ‘Mystery Reader’. The children loved hearing the tale of ‘The Little Red Hen and even joined in with some of the story too. A big thank you to Olivia’s mum for giving up her time to come and share a story with us!

Year 1 refreshed their knowledge of knot tying today. They worked hard to perfect the overhand and the stopper knot before exploring the muddy conditions on the school field. They also thought about the types of weather we are experiencing during autumn. Well done Year 1!

In Year 1 we enjoyed a Now Press Play adventure to help us understand the seasons. Jack Frost had stolen a magical clock that meant all of the seasons were mixed up and the children had to follow him through the seasons to get the clock back. Well Done Year 1!

Yesterday in Year 1, we explored fact families with our friends. We found it tricky to see that the equals sign can sometimes move but we persevered and used cubes to help us visualise the problem.

This afternoon, Year 1 continued learning about fire. After collecting firewood, we managed to get a fire going using the three special ingredients needed for any fire and after discussing safety we toasted marshmallows. We then began trying to predict the weather by watching the direction that the clouds were moving and thinking about the types of clouds coming our way.

Forest School Fire04-11-2019 | 15:03:00 | No Comments

In Year 1’s session we began thinking about Bonfire Night and the gunpowder plot. We discussed safety and risk when lighting fires and the 3 ingredients needed for any fire. We had a go trying to create sparks using flint and steel and also practised our knot-tying skills.
