The beginning of Year 1 2017
Year 1 have settled in very well to their new classroom and moving up to Key Stage 1!
In the first few weeks of term, we have been getting used to the Key Stage 1 environment, new routines, and we have been learning lots of new exciting things!
We have been learning how to keep safe on the internet and how we can keep safe in school.
We had a music retreat day with Dan Callow, where we learnt new songs and dance moves! We had a lovely class meditation, followed by a colour by numbers activity.
On one world day we learnt lots about Hinduism, learned new vocabulary and had an afternoon of a variety of art activities.
We have been reading in our new reading area, ordering and matching numbers, becoming more familiar with Nursery rhymes and stories in English and we have even started our new topic on our local area; Bedworth.
It has been a very busy and exciting few weeks in Year 1 and we have lots more to look forward to!
In year 1, we have been looking at plants. The children have been labelling flowering plants and trees. The children enjoyed going outside onto the playground to observe and investigate the trees. We also did some bark rubbing and sketched trees.
St Francis of Assisi Feast Day
The children have enjoyed learning about Saint Francis of Assisi. The children loved the school visitor from Zoolab and were able to see a variety of animals, even a tarantula! We had a big class discussion on how we can look after all the animals and Year 1 has worked really hard to make their own animals out of clay for our class zoo!
This week year 1 used the Bee-bots. We helped each other switch it on and programme the programme the Bee-bot to enable it to move. As a class we came up with instructions for us the follow and took it in turns to use these instructions to see where the Bee-bot would end up.
