Year 1 have been creating their own e-book version of Stickman by Julia Donaldson, as part of their Literacy and computing work. Click on the link below to open our
Sickman version 2.
We have started our new topic this week – ‘Eat More Fruit and Vegetables’. We investigated different fruits and used them to make a delicious fruit salad. Then we used different tools to chop, grate and peel vegetables.
Try this game to match the fruit names to the correct picture:

Year One have been finding out about the seasons and the different ways in which we can measure the weather – wind, rain and temperature. We watched this video to find out how to make our very own rain guage!
Soon we will be going on a visit to the local EcoPark to find out about changes to the weather and the seasons. These are some of the questions which the children want to find the answers to:
What changes can you see happening to the trees during Autumn?
What do we use to test the wind?
Does a thermometer measure heat?
How much rain falls down?
Come and share a book with your child in Year One
On Thursday 1C visited the Ecopark as we began our new topic ‘Plants and Trees’. When we were there we looked for lots of different types of plants, using a chart to help us try to identify them. We also drew some of the leaves and flowers that we came across.
Can you recognise the plants which these leaves came from?

This week in 1C we have been finding out about the work of the artist Jackson Pollock. We have read his autobiography and we have talked about some of his paintings. We have created paintings by rolling marbles through paint. We have layered paper over balloons to create papier-mache. We have layered different materials to create collages.
