We’re having a special visit!

Just a reminder that we’re having a special visit on Monday 22nd May!

We are all so excited!

Dear Parents/Carers,

As part of our topic ‘On the Farm’ a farm will visit us right here at school on the 22nd of May.

The farmer will bring a wide range of animals, including: ducks, chickens, rabbits, goats and sheep, cows and pigs.The animals will be set up in secure pens on the school field at the New Cross Street site.

The children will be able to see and interact with the animals in a safe, close up environment.  There will be more opportunities for the children to ask questions and even stroke some of the animals!

The farmer will be visiting school on Monday 22nd May.  Children at the Usher street site will travel to New Cross by minibus. They will be dropped off and picked up from Usher Street at the usual time.  School will provide all the children a packed lunch. Please make sure that your child has a coat in case it rains.

After the visit we will upload all of our photos onto the school blog and the children will be using the photos to create their own adverts for the farm!

We kindly ask for £5 to cover the costs of the farm visit.  Thank you for your support.Yours Faithfully,

Year 1 Team

 

Instructions-Planting a seed

Instructions-Planting a seed

This week in Year 1  we have been learning about instructions and what needs to be included so that they can be easily followed.

We understand that instructions need to be clear and need to include time connectives, imperative verbs and adverbs.

We planted our own seed by following the instructions one of 3 ways; listening to the adult read the instructions, following the picture instructions or reading the instructions independently.

Have a look at our photos here:

Welcome back! We hope you had a good Easter holiday!

This half term we are learning about Spring and farms, particularly where our food comes from!

This week we will be following written instructions to plant a seed and over the coming weeks we will be watching the seed grow!

Challenge: When eating your tea can you explain where the food has come from?

Billy’s Bucket

Billy’s Bucket

This week have been retelling the story of Billy’s Bucket. We worked in groups to rehearse and we pretended we were on CBeebies Bedtime Stories! We focused on using clear voices, expression, actions, props and working well as a team. We are hoping to share our story videos with the children in Reception and Nursery. Take a look at one of our videos below, we hope you enjoy listening to our story. Please leave a comment to tell us what the children in this group did well!

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!
