This week, we started the practical element of our Great British Bake Off topic for DT. Our lesson began with a discussion around food safety and hygiene. Together, we compiled a list of things we must and mustn't do to ensure we were being safe and hygienic whilst cooking.
The children worked so well together reading the recipe, weighing the ingredients, taking turns to mix and helping one another; it was a joy to see. I heard from across the classroom someone say, "This is the best day of school ever!" I think it's safe to say it was a successful afternoon!
A BIG thank you to Mrs Glover who was a huge help too!
Another week has flown by and we have worked incredibly hard, particularly in Maths, where we have been consolidating our knowledge of 2D and 3D shapes as well as the introduction of 2 digit numbers with a focus on tens and ones.
Here are some photos of the children enjoying the Maths area to build 2D and 3D shapes during their independent learning time.
Welcome back Year One. It has been lovely to have a full class back in school this week and the children have loved spending time reconnecting with one another after some time apart. It has especially been great for the children to spend time with children from other year groups at break and lunchtimes now we are no longer in year group bubbles.
We were lucky to have a nice sunny afternoon for our PE lesson with Mr Berry on Wednesday. The children practised some tennis skills and then worked together to create their own games using the resources.
On Thursday, the children enjoyed sharing some books together.
Wow! Can you believe the Christmas holidays are upon us? What a busy week we have had. The photos below show how much fun the children have had, despite it not quite being the end of term we had planned. A big well done to every single one of the Year One children who have worked so incredible hard this term and deserve a wonderful Christmas break with their families.
Wishing you all a very merry Christmas and a happy and healthy new year.
As part of our History unit about dinosaurs, we have been learning about what a palaeontologist is and what they do to help us learn about plants and animals from the past. We've been having a go at being palaeontologists. With our special kit of tools and safety equipment, we have searched among the sand for fossils and they tried to identify what animal they might belong to.
A BIG thank you to Andrew Shaddick for very kindly fixing the broken sand tray. We are very grateful and the children have thoroughly enjoyed playing with it this week!
On Monday, we braved the rain and headed to the forest school area for the afternoon. The children had a fantastic time in the mud kitchen, climbing on the climbing frame, balancing on the logs, driving the car and exploring the outdoor learning area. We even managed to get a small fire going despite the rain! We can't wait to go again!
