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!

Science investigation

Science investigation

Today we have been investigating the most suitable material for Goldilocks’ house to be made out of.

We were investigating whether the material was sturdy, strong or waterproof as we didn’t t want a house that would leak if it rained or fall down if it was windy…!

We worked scientifically by pouring the same amount of water on each material (50 ml) and putting the same weight on (1KG).

Can you remember which material was most suitable and explain why?

In our topic  this half term we have been learning all about Goldilocks and the Three Bears.

Today we have done a science investigation into which material would be suitable for a set of curtains for Goldilocks’ house.

The materials which we investigated were:

  • tissue paper
  • tin foil
  • fabric
  • bin bag (plastic)
  • leather

We used a torch and ensured that our investigation was fair by making sure we used the same light and that the light was the same distance away for each material tested.

Challenge: Can you remember which material was most effective and why? Was the material transparent or opaque?
