Year 1 Park Trip

In D.T we are looking at how pivots and levers make objects move. We went to the park to see how they work on the the playground equipment and discovered lots of good examples. Did you know that the swing works by having a pivot and a lever, with the pivot at the top to allow the swing to move? We had a great time looking at these pivots and levers work and a great morning out.

Our senses afternoon

We enjoyed exploring our senses, we talked about how the senses were linked to our body parts.

We then took part in some activities that helped us use our senses, like listening to sounds on the laptop, tasting different fruits, smelling blindfolded, using magnifying glasses to explore natural objects and making textured pictures.

Mount Pleasant Farm Trip with Year 1

Today in Year 1, we went to Mount Pleasant Farm and learnt about and named the common animals found on the farm. We saw cows, chickens, sheep and even the farm dog called Tinkerbell. We had a brilliant time and learnt lots of new information. Did you know that baby cows were called calves and that male chickens were called cockerels? Did you know that eggs are collected from the chickens every day so that the eggs are never over 1 day old? Thank you 1RB and 1J for showing fantastic manners and great enthusiasm at the farm. What an amazing day!

Year 1 Get Green Fingers!

Year 1 Get Green Fingers!

Over the past year the children in Year 1 have worked extremely hard with Martin in the garden. At the beginning of the year the children helped Martin to plant a wide variety of seeds including carrots, onions, beans, garlic, potatoes and strawberries!

The children thoroughly enjoyed watching as, slowly but surely, the fruit and vegetables began to grow. After lots of sunshine and showers the food we were growing was ready to harvest. The children demonstrated their new found ‘green fingers’ by carefully pulling, digging and collecting all of the fresh produce.

Then came the exciting part! After harvesting all of the fruit and vegetables we then set to work using the ingredients to make a vegetable curry and a fruit salad. Lots of children bought in fruit from home to help make our fruit salad even tastier. The teachers were all very impressed as the children showed off their excellent cutting skills when preparing all of the fruit.

After all of our hard work we went into the hall and had a feast! It was very exciting to eat the food just a couple of hours after we had harvested it. The curry, garlic bread and the fruit salad were all delicious and everybody went home feeling very full indeed!
