Oxford Owl Website!

Oxford Owl Website!

We have recently discovered a fantastic website which you can now use at home too! It’s called Oxford Owl (see the link below). It provides a great opportunity to read, or listen to, books online. There are also lots of fun activities linked to the different stories. We really hope you enjoy using the website as much as we have.

Thanks,

The Year Team

Year 1 Sports Day!

Year 1 Sports Day!

Year 1 have had a great time at Sports Day today.  We all chose a country to represent, just like in the Olympics! 1AB were Japanese Samurai’s – complete with warrior headbands and 1KP chose Mexico and they made their own flags and even did a Mexican wave.  1LS chose New Zealand and we designed our own Maori tattoos and did a performance of the Haka! We hope you enjoyed cheering us all on.

Prediction

Prediction

This week in English we have been using our prediction skills on the new text that we will be reading in the next half term.

We don’t know the title but we do know it is set in a Wonderland…. We also know there are peculiar characters who are very important in the story.

Yesterday we looked at different moments in the book and this is where we had to use our inference skills on what the character might be thinking or saying. We had our own speech and thought bubbles and we wrote our ideas in them. We discussed the pictures with our peers and our teacher also supported our learning.

Year 1 Farm Visit!

Year 1 Farm Visit!

This week we were lucky enough to have a visit from a local farmer.  He brought a wide range of animals such as; sheep, goats, a pony, donkey, alpacas, pig, rabbits, guinea pigs, tortoise, duckling, hen and a cockerel!

Ian the farmer answered all of our questions and showed us how he cares for his animals.  He also showed us some of the garments and fabrics that are made from the wool of both the alpacas and the sheep.  We even got to brush the donkey and the pony!

We learnt so much during his visit and we are using the information we gathered in our writing this week.  We will also be writing a thank you letter to Ian as we enjoyed it so much!

Comment below to tell us what your favourite part of the day.

Thanks,

The Year 1 Team 🙂
