Today, Year 1 broadcast their wonderful Rocket Radio show about marvelous materials, with parents invited to both the Bierton Rd and Starbank Rd sites. Year 1 were definitely clued up about materials and their properties, because they delivered some very impressive facts. There were also some fantastic sing-along songs about subtraction and the weather.
In Literacy, Year One have been finding out about non-fiction texts. We have been identifying the features – Information, Facts, Contents, Index, Glossary, Photographs, Headings, Labels, Diagrams.
We tidied up our book corners by looking carefully at each book and deciding which section it needed to go in – Fiction or Non-fiction.
To support your child you can visit your local library and find a non-fiction book on a topic he/she wants to find out more about!
Remember to come and listen to the Year One Radio Show at Starbank School Bierton Site on Friday 12th December.
This week in Literacy we have been reading stories with a weather theme. We read ‘The Wind and The Sun’ and ‘The Snowman’ stories. Then we thought of words to describe how we would feel, what we would see, and what we would hear in different types of weather. Next week we will be reading the story ‘ After the Storm (Percy the Park Keeper)’ by Nick Butterworth, and writing our own story!
In Numeracy we have been learning how to subtract and how to write number sentences. We found out which words we use when we subtract, such as “take away”, “less” and “fewer”.
In our Topic we used blueberries and blackberries to create a group painting on fabric!
Mr Reed from class 1R had also been training to use the Rocket Radio studio, and was keen to share the new skills he had learnt too. Here is his fantastic new show called The Half Term Review, which was broadcast around Main School on 17th October.
This week we made vegetable soup. We washed and chopped vegetables which we had chosen – broccoli, carrots and onion. Then we added vegetarian stock and simmered the mixture for 10 minutes before eating. We thought it smelt really nice and tasted delicious!
How had the vegetables changed after we had cooked them? What other vegetables could we have used?
We would like to say a big Thank you to our parents who came and supported us today. The children have been working so hard and were so excited to finally perform for you all.
The children have learnt lots about different styles of dance and how we can move our bodies to different styles of music . The children worked extremly hard to sequence their own movements and we worked on how we could perform these for our audience.
