Please watch our video. Can you guess what our story for the day was? Finally, as a treat at the end of the video, I […]

Our creative habitat!

During Science week, we have been learning about David Attenborough, and acting like him by exploring the fascinating animals in each continent of the world. We have explored cold climates, hot climates, dry climates and wet climates. A scorching climate we explored the African Savanna and created a habitat for the animals to live in.

Music week

We have learnt so much during music week! We have used so many key words including: tempo, beats, pitch and lyrics. We created album covers for our cover of the song Ghost Town by The Specials (see our separate music video blog). challenge: write one of our key words and write what it means.

Our Biodome clear up!

Thank you to all of the ECO Warriors who helped make our biodome a tidier and usable area (a special thank you to Mrs Beniston too)! We were so excited to make sure that all the weeds were cleared and that the soil trays are ready for the school to use. It made the children […]

Rhyme Time

In Year 1 we have been learning and adapting our class poem! We have used our rhyming skills to add a line to great a bigger verse and we got to recite the poem too! We hope you enjoy our learning…

Animal Antics!

In our Science topic of animal antics, we have explored the terminology vertebrate and invertebrate. Then, we used our previous knowledge of animals and how they move to decide whether they have back bone or not. Challenges – what is an invertebrate? Can you name 5 vertebrates?

Amazing Animals!

In Science this week, we have a recognised a variety of animals and their body parts. Then, we made models and recognised whether they are amphibians or reptiles. Please enjoy our video…

This week we are learning to identify fiction and non-fiction. We are looking for the features of non-fiction in a variety of books and talking about them too! We learnt loads in our first lesson on it…

Kenyan Christmas

We celebrated a Kenyan style Christmas based on our story book. We developed our listening skills and imagination whilst playing our made up game of musical balance. Plus, we decorated our classrooom with paper chains and we all became elves for the day!

1 Red in Kenya

During Celebrations Around the World week, 1 Red virtually travelled to Kenya; discussed Kenyan life and made Kenyan necklaces. We have developed our knowledge of the world, our recognition of shapes, our speaking and listening skills and our respect of other cultures.

Superstar reader!

What a superstar! Our young reader has shown great enthusiasm and understanding of the text she has been reading. She followed instructions to make her own musical instrument. We were so excited that we had to play it together!

Cubes…cubes everywhere!

In 1 Red we developed our fine motor skills by making a cube from spaghetti and play doh. This helped us to recognise how many faces a cube has, understand the term ‘faces’ and recognise corners. After, we talked about ither 3D shapes and how many faces they have.

Would you be a great ECO Warrior?

As ECO coordinator, Mrs Carter is creating a group of tenacious, respectful and caring children to help us actively play a part in looking after our environment and thinking about looking after our world. We would like a grandparent/mum/dad or carer to be involved in with supporting our ECO Warriors every half term to develop […]

Following instructions

This week the children are learning about instructions. We have identified imperative verbs (bossy verbs) in a text and read a text to complet a task. Through this we have developed our reading skills of blending words using phonics and our understanding of what we are reading. Look at how much fun we had…
