Then we had the chance to sketch and label all the things we saw on our tour to take back for our classroom display.

On Friday 26th January 2018, year 1 visited the Black Country Museum to look at how things were in the past and how things have changed over time.

The children began the day by participating in a Victorian wash day. Whereby, they had to grate the soap and add it to the water in the dolly tub. After that the children had to use the dolly to twist and mix the clothes until they were clean.

Then they had to use all their strength to turn the mangle to rinse the excess water from the clothes. Finally they then hung their clothes on a washing line using a peg.

It was an enjoyable experience but the children realised how hard the Victorian children had to work.

The half of the day the children visited old shops, a school and houses to see how they lived and to think about the difference between then and now. The children were quite surprised of the huge difference there was.

The children were so well behaved and really did Starbank Primary proud. Children and teachers alike both enjoyed the trip!  It was a very worth while experience.

Searching for ladybirds

Today we went out into the garden to explore ladybirds. We investigated what they look like and how they move. Afterwards we used our observations to create an interesting word bank bursting with adjectives and verbs to describe ladybirds. Tomorrow we will use this vocabulary to create our very own ladybird poem in the style of James Carter’s Caterpillar poem. 102_2877 102_2865 102_2867 102_2869 102_2873

Year 1 make musical instruments!

1RB have enjoyed experimenting, planning, designing and making their musical instruments in Design and Technology this week! They had to think about what resources would be best to use, how they can be fixed together and to make sure it created a sound.

Take a look at their brilliant musical instruments!
