King of the Road

Published on Thursday 26 November 2020 by Miss Lywood.

This week Year 1 have been learning how to cross the road safely using the STOP, LOOK, LISTEN, THINK! strategy.

STOP - when you approach a crossing, STOP before you come to the edge of the pavement

LOOK - for cars, bikes, lorries, other vehicles, by looking right, left and right again

LISTEN - for vehicles too. You may be able to hear them before you see them

THINK - is there enough time for you to cross the road safely?

We looked at different types of crossings and then discussed how important it is to hold an adult's hand when crossing the road.

    Science Investigation 1: 2D Shape

    Published on Thursday 5 November 2020 by Miss Macieira.

    Year 1 will be taking part in a math investigation one afternoon per week. We decided to begin our investigation afternoons by exploring 2D shapes.

    We focused on circles, squares, rectangles and triangles, looking at their properties and where in our surroundings we could see them. We went on a shape hunt where we had to identify objects in our classrooms which have the same properties as the 2D shapes we were exploring.

    We used sand to draw the different shapes and match them to the correct word and then sorted our 2D shapes into different groups based on their properties.

    Next week we are going to continue by doing some tricky problem solving and investigation work on 2D shape!


      One Autumn Day

      Published on Tuesday 20 October 2020 by Miss Lywood.

      This week Year 1 got out and about the school grounds to hunt for signs of autumn. We were super lucky to find different coloured leaves, seed pods, acorns and pine cones. We brought them all back to class to sort into different groups before labelling them.

      Then we had a go at drawing our autumnal finds using pencils. It was nice to get outside in the fresh air and discover how nature changes with the seasons. We now know that the days get shorter and the weather starts to get cooler in autumn.
