Today we had our first session with the gymnastics coach. We practised different types of rolls - pencil roll, egg roll and rock and rolling (in preparation for forward rolls). We even challenged ourselves to keep a beanbag between our knoees whilst doing a pencil roll and a beanbag between our knees and chest whilst doing an egg roll. We are looking forward to learning more skills in our next session.
We had a lovely afternoon in the sunshine today identifying and naming the wild plants growing in the school grounds. We used our viewfinders to help us to focus on the plants we could see and sketched them. We then came back into the classroom and shared our learning. We wrote a list of the plants that we knew and made a note of ones we don't know the name of to research. We will probably ask Mr Moulton for some help in naming them!
We took our first steps into the world of colour today. We learned about the 3 primary colours and painted them into the colour wheel. We also looked at the work of 2 different artisits and identified the primary colours they have used. We then took inspiration from Piet Mondrian and created our own work in his style choosing only the primary colours to use.
Our new story in English is Stanley's Stick. It is about a little boy who takes his stick everywhere with him. We entered Stanley's world of imagination and imagined what we would use different sticks for. We looked at the shape and size of them and then had great fun pretending it was a broomstick, chalk, bow tie, spare hand, bow and arrow and even a hairbrush!
We are also learning the story of Stanley's stck off by heart with actions to help us remember the story.
Then we will start to write our own version of the story using our imaginations, just like Stanley!
1.3.22 Author visit
We were lucky enough to have a visit from a real life author this week. Jarvis read us some of his stories, including his brand new book "The Boy With Flowers In His Hair" that will be released on Thursday. He read us the story and taught us how to draw the main character. We really enjoyed his workshop.
8.2.22 Safer internet day
Today we followed the story of Digi Duck that Mr Redmond shared in yesterday's assembly. We discussed the choices that Digi Duck made when playing a game online with his friends. We all agreed that he did not keep himself safe and understood the consequences of his actions.
Today we welcomed a visitor to talk about their toys from when they were younger. Harriet's Gran was kind enough to bring in lots of her toys from when she was little and even one that belonged to her Mum too! We looked at them and talked about what they were made from and how she used to play with them.
In Geography today we followed the teddy bears' adventures around the classroom and used positional language to describe where they were. We noticed when they were above, under, next to, between, in front of, behind different objects in the classroom. We then took the bears on our own adventure and described where they were. It was lots of fun!
We had fun in PE today, we played traffic lights as our warm up game, have a look in the gallery and see if you can guess the things the children had to do when I said each colour. The colours are green, amber, red, blue, purple and pink. Can the children think of a new action for next week?
What a fantastic first week we have had. I am so proud of the way that the children have settled into Year 1. It has been a pleasure getting to know them all and I very much look forward to the year ahead. Have a lovely weekend everyone.
We had a fabulous first day, the children loved exploring the classroom and I enjoyed getting to know them all. Have a look in the gallery to see what they got up to.
I have been busy in the classroom, check out the gallery to see all of the new areas for you to play in.
