Fox Class worked well in their teams competing against each other in different events. They took part in the egg and spoon race, hockey slalom, hurdels relay, football dribble and winning points for getting a quoit in the furthest hoop. They encouraged their team mates and got stickers for coming first, second and third and a Super Stuff sticker for taking part. The sun came out as they finished so they then relaxed and ate a very cold ice lolly in the sunshine!
This half term, as part of our PE curriculum, Year 1 have had the opportunity to learn to play hockey. We very much enjoyed our first session in the sunshine! We practiced holding the hockey stick correctly as we as controlling and stopping the ball.
The Lion Inside
As part of our English learning, we listened to the story 'The Lion Inside' by Rachel Bright. As a class, we discussed the story nd it's characters. We then made masks and with a partner, we role-played different parts of the story.
This term as part of our Design and Technology learning, we made fruit kebabs. We learned all about healthy eating and looked at the Eatwell plate to help us decide what kind of healthy snacks we could make. We taste tested different fruits to start so we could see which ones we liked or disliked. We then chose which fruit we would put on our kebabs and drew our designs. Then it was time to make our kebabs! We followed our designs as closely as possible. As part of the process we then evaluated our final product. In the afternoon we got to sit outside and enjoy eating them!
We enjoyed sharing our handmade Easter Bonnets with the rest of the school. All of the hats looked fantastic! We were also lucky enough to take part in an Easter Egg Hunt. We made our own baskets in class to collect our eggs in.
Instructions - Jam Sandwich Making
This term we looked at writing instructions. In our writing, we practiced all of the features a good set of instructions should have. We practiced following a set of instructions to make a Jam Sandwich before writing our own instructions. We loved making and eating our sandwiches in the classroom!
As part of our Enchanted Forest topic, we have been looking at Traditional Fairytales. We were lucky enough to have a Storyteller come in and tell us the story of The Three Billy Goats Gruff. We were able to join in with some of the actions and we really enjoyed listening!
Comparing Numbers in Maths
This term we have looked at numbers to 30 and compared them through ordering number sequences from smallest to biggest and through Greater than/Less than. The children enjoyed using their arms to practically show the Greater than and Less than signs (< >).
