The Deep

The Deep

Last week went to ‘The Deep’ in Hull; it was a fantastic day and we learnt so much!

We had a workshop where we learnt about the Artic and Antarctic and which animals live there! We also learnt about endangered animals and how different sea animals live in  different temperature oceans.

We then explored The Deep, we saw lots of animals including a swordfish, sharks, jellyfish, clown fish and the very cheeky penguins. We were also very fortunate to watch the divers feeding the fish, they even waved at us through the glass!

Have a look at our photos and comment below.

1LS Gem Day – March

1LS Gem Day – March

Today we learnt all about the different jobs within our school and our local area.  We wrote questions (using question marks!) for key members of staff, and even got the chance to interview them in the afternoon.  We used role play to experience different job roles and take on responsibilities.  We discussed how employers hire new members of staff and then used ‘because’ to give reasons for why we would be a good person to employ for different job roles.  We have had a great day learning about the different jobs that will be available to us in the future – we hope you enjoy our photos!

Please leave a comment to explain what you would like to be when you grow up, use ‘because’ to give reasons.

‘Under the Sea’

‘Under the Sea’

Welcome back! We hope you have had a good half term.

This half term we are learning about ‘Under the Sea’. We will be writing our own fact sheets on our chosen sea creature after researching using the Ipads and reading fact sheets. We will also be creating our own sea aquarium, devising our own sea dance in P.E and going to The Deep in Hull!

Do you know any animals that live in the sea? If you do, comment below!

Also, can you remember the beginning of the sea dance to this song? Get practising at home!

WOW day!

WOW day!

On Wednesday we had a WOW day to introduce our topic of Space.

We had so much fun as we made our very own rockets with Mrs Thomas and we learnt why a rocket needs a parachute!  We then tested our rockets in the school hall and we practised how far we could throw them and tested whether our parachutes worked!

We also made our own aliens out of modelling clay. Some aliens had 4 heads, 3 eyes and one round body. Other aliens were very tall and had no arms and 6 eyes! They were all different and equally brilliant.

We were also very fortunate as we had a visitor from an astronaut, Mr Bee. He told us all about his adventures in Space and how he had landed his rocket in Bowling Park!! He explained how we put on his suit, how he needed to be in quarantine before a mission and explained all about Space and how it feels with there being no gravity!

Have a look at some of our pictures and comment below if you can remember any facts from Mr Bee.

Winter collage!

Winter collage!

We have had a very productive afternoon in Year 1 as we have created our very own Winter collages!

We looked at some pictures beforehand and noticed that the trees had no leaves on and that they were bare. We also noticed in the pictures lots of snow and one even had a robin!

We then created our own collage!

What do you think?! We love them!

Welcome back!

Welcome back!

We hope you’ve had a fantastic holiday and Christmas.  This half term our topic is SPACE. Tell us what you already know about Space or something that you would like to find out.  Create your own rhyme or song to help to remember the names and order of the planets in our solar system.  You will even get the chance to meet a real astronaut!
