1R Take Flight With Their Kites!

1R Take Flight With Their Kites!

We had a very exciting start to our new art topic this week when we went outside to investigate which materials would make the best kite. The children had lots of fun testing different materials including wood, plastic, felt, tin foil and binca. After our investigation we came to the conclusion that plastic would be the best material for us to use to make our kites as it is light, waterproof, bendy and it comes in lots of different colours.

In Maths this week we have been learning all about division. To help us with this, some of the children went outside to collect lots of different natural objects. They were then given a division problem to solve by sharing e.g. 12 shared between 3 groups. The children had lots of fun sharing the objects one at a time to ensure they were shared equally.

During English lessons this week we have been learning about a poem named the ‘Caribbean Counting Rhyme’. The children worked hard in class to identify the different features in the poem including rhyme, repetition, adjectives, rhythm and alliteration. Some of the children also went outside to take part in a hunt for rhyming words. When the children went outside they found lots of words were written on the playground. Miss Jorge then called out a word and they had to race to find the words that rhymed with it e.g. spoon and moon.

1R Go Exploring!

1R Go Exploring!

In 1R we have enjoyed making the most of the sunshine by going outside to do lots of exploring. As part of science week, we went on our very own minibeast hunt around the school site and the children made some very exciting discoveries! They found ants, woodlice, caterpillars, centipedes, spiders, ants and worms!

In English we have been learning about a poem called ‘Walking Through The Playground’. The children worked hard to learn the poem by heart so that they could recite it without looking at the words. At the end of the lesson we went outside to perform the poem in our own playground! The children had lots of fun using expression and actions to make the poem exciting for the audience.

1R Get Creative!

1R Get Creative!

The children in 1R have been working extremely hard this week completing lots of important work with Mr Reed. As a treat, the children have had the chance to take part in lots of exciting activities in the afternoon!

Lots of children have been getting creative making some giant art work! We used some extremely long paper to create our art on. One sheet of paper was even longer than the whiteboard! This activity also also created lots of writing opportunities as the children were busy labelling and writing about the things they had drawn.

The children have also been busy building lots of exciting things using cardboard boxes, sketching natural objects, building 3D structures using lollipop sticks and painting story characters. We even created our own version of Small Heath by making our own road signs to add to a map! Can you spot any roads you recognise on our map?
