Check out our new, child-led outdoor areas...
Over the past few days, the children have become increasingly interested in our outdoor area. Our current Science topic includes animals so their curiosity has soared. They have taken the reigns of their own learning and communicated what they would like to do and learn about whilst out there. Introducing our minibeast investigation lab, bird watching station and minibeast hotel!
Here we are planting beautiful and fragrant violas and winter pansies. We are going to nurture and look after them each day.
Celebratory hot chocolate!
After a very successful week in year 1, we treat ourselves to a nice warm cup of hot chocolate during our class achievement assembly. YUMMY!
We have been working extremely hard on our handwriting in year one, trying to master those grown-up, cursive joins. Here is a little video of one of our handwriting sessions in class. Such wonderful concentration...
We love each other!
As part of our PSHCE unit, we have created a display showing off the wonderfully positive relationships that we have in year 1.
PE in Year 1
We are really enjoying PE out on our huge field. Last week, we focused on football skills. Check out our penalty skills...
The Messy Magpie
During eco week, we explored the damage that litter can do and how recycling helps. We based our learning on this story. We used sequencing cards to order the story and puppets to role play the story. We wrote about the damage that Morris's litter had done to his environment and how he cleaned it up.
Here is a sneaky peak at our beautiful, immersive classroom environment...
...and here are some photographs of us enjoying it!
Keep your eyes peeled for some fantastic updates on our outdoor learning environment which is evolving each day into something quite extraordinary...
