Wonderful Weeders19-11-2020 | 15:34:12 | No Comments

Today, Year 1 focussed on looking after our school grounds. Armed with hand forks and trowels, they weeded the flowerbeds, cleared up fallen twigs and branches and planted bulbs ready for some flowers to grow in spring. It was tricky to know which were weeds and which were plants at first but we got there in the end.

What is a number line?13-11-2020 | 16:31:44 | No Comments

This week, we have been looking at number lines and how we can use them to support us in our math’s learning. Today the children have been applying the skills they have learned in a variety of practical activities. Does a number line always begin with 1? The children explored this idea by creating number lines starting with various numbers. They rolled dice and tried to be the first to complete their number line and matched objects to the numbers along the number line. We had so much fun! #WerringtonSTEM

Forest School Fire Safety08-11-2020 | 10:59:39 | No Comments

During Forest School this week, Year 1 learned how to choose a safe spot for a fire. They they gathered their own materials for fuel and chose their own structure for setting up their sticks to create a fire. Some chose a waffle style, while others opted for more traditional layouts and even created seating areas around the fire for their friends. They then used their imaginations to light their fires and discussed what they would cook for tea. A super afternoon of team work, well done Year 1.

Fire Safety with the trolls22-10-2020 | 15:17:29 | No Comments

Year 1 learned about fire safety today and enjoyed a campfire with a story. We used our story sticks to help us with our tale, The Three Billy Goats Gruff and then toasted marshmallows with our friends.

Whatever the Weather16-10-2020 | 07:32:33 | No Comments

As part of our Geography learning, Year 1 have been thinking about the types of clothing that would be needed for the weather in each season. It was quite tricky for some seasons as we agreed that our changeable weather could mean that you’d need your warm jumpers even in summer!

Goldsworthy Stars in Forest School16-10-2020 | 07:30:21 | No Comments

Yesterday, Year 1 were introduced to the work of Andy Goldsworthy. Working as a team, they then created their own works of art following the same style and themes used by Goldsworthy in his work. The children were amazed at the effect such simple ideas can have and the beauty of using natural materials.

It’s all about the leaves!09-10-2020 | 15:40:58 | No Comments

In science, Year 1 have been looking at a variety leaves they collected from the school grounds. The children worked hard to discover what trees the leaves are from by looking closely at their shape, colour, size and other features. They used their super investigation skills and discussed what deciduous and coniferous (evergreen) trees are and how we can recognise the trees by looking closely at their leaves. #werringtonSTEM

Super Scientists Test Questions!30-09-2020 | 15:54:33 | No Comments

Yesterday, Year 1 got their thinking caps on as they began to think like scientists. They were challenged to test three questions: How can you stick pepper to a balloon? Can you stretch chocolate? How can we see the wind? As you can see from the photos we had a lot of fun and really enjoyed the chocolate experiment. We also discovered how static electricity can be useful and enjoyed the results of our wind experiment. Well done to all of our Year 1 scientists!

This week in PE Year 1 have been developing their throwing skills in PE. The children enjoyed throwing the beanbags, balls, hula hoops and quoits at the target.
