Happy New Year!

This term's topic is called ‘Toy Story’. This is a History led topic. We will be exploring what toys were like in the past and how they are similar and different to our own toys. We will also be thinking about how we can find out about the past.

In Science we will be thinking about materials.  We will think about what toys now and in the past are/were made from.  We will think about what the best material would be to make a waterproof coat for a toy.

In PE we are going to make up a dance based on the characters from the film 'Toy Story'.

In English we are going to write lists and captions, learn the story Traction Man, write our own story, write some instructions and make up our own poems.

We will be having lots of fun.  Look out for photos and updates here.

To begin our topic the children brought in a toy from home.  They talked about it and then wrote about it.  They also drew it.  We thought about the materials our toys were made from.

What were toys like in the past?

We looked at some old toys that we borrowed from the museum. We played with them. We decided we liked quite a lot of the toys and actually had some of them ourselves at home and realised old and new toys can be similar as well as different. Some of the toys were actually from the past and some were replicas. 

The children enjoyed experimenting with the Blue Bots today. They had a go at making an algorithm that would get the Blue Bot to their partner 😀
We then tried to create an algorithm to get our Blue Bot to write the numbers 0-9.
In PE we have been thinking about the characters from the film Toy Story and how they move.We pretended to be Woody, Buzz and Slinky Dog. We also acted out the scene when Jesse and Woody fall out in the second film.

We looked at some toys and talked about what they were made from and what that material felt like. We then sorted the toys into groups. Some toys were made from more than one material.

We learnt today that women haven’t always been able to vote. We had a vote and only the boys got to take part. We didn’t think this was fair. We learnt about Emmeline Pankhurst. We made sashes like the suffragettes wore saying VOTES FOR WOMEN, we made posters too.

Remembering the Suffragettes

We have been using the Blue Bots and IPads in class that we have on loan. Thank you to Mrs Guy for organising this.

We wanted to find out what material would be best to make Traction Man a new diving suit so we planned an experiment to find out. We were looking for waterproof materials. We predicted which material would be the best and then tested each one.

We have been learning about instructions in Year 1. We had a go at following some today. Have a look at our hedgehogs 😀

Welcome to Year One!

Welcome to our Year One website page.

We will be adding lots of pictures and useful documents as the year progresses,

Our role-play area this term is a fairy tale castle.

We are looking forward to children dressing up as fairy tale characters

and acting out those traditional stories.

Later in the term we will be visiting a real castle

and dressing up in our favourite costumes!

 

As always, if you have any questions, please just ask!

Year 1 Long Term Plan 2018/2019

Welcome back to the Summer Term

This term in Year One, our theme is....

 

Stone Girl, Bone Girl

 

Alongside our classwork this term, we will be really busy finding out about Mary Anning. Who is she and why it is so important that we remember her? We launched our theme this term with an exciting fossil hunt around the school. After the fossil hunt, we used tooth picks to excavate chocolate chips out of chocolate cookies. Once we had excavated them, we could eat them! Take a look at our pictures...

Fossil Hunting!
