A big thank you to Miss D who planned some wonderful pirate themed activities for Year 1 to do. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed taking part in their Pirate Adventure!
Take a look at some photos of our work on exploring mass in Maths. We used non-standard units of measurement and used key words to discuss our observations including heavier, lighter, and equal.
As part of our work on our Food and Nutrition unit in D&T, we have been focusing on the importance of eating a healthy breakfast. We tasted a variety of fruit that could be eaten as part of a healthy breakfast. This included some fresh, tinned, dried and frozen fruits. After tasting each fruit, we described the fruit using sensory vocabulary.
In Maths this week we have been focusing on comparing and measuring length/ height. We began our work by comparing the length/ heights of different objects in our school environment. We thought carefully about the key vocabulary used when comparing including longer, taller and shorter. We used sound recorders to record what we compared.
We had a fabulous day for World Book Day in Year 1 Evenlode Class. It was great to see everyone enjoying books and dressed in their pyjamas as part of our bedtime stories dress up. We enjoyed our visit to our school library and shared some of our favourite books with children from Year 2/ Year 4. If you haven't already visited it yet, take a look at the World Book Day website which has a wealth of book related information and activities: www.worldbookday.com/
We had a fun afternoon with Miss D where we got to design and make pirate biscuits. Some of us also made some pirate flags. We are looking forward to our Pirate fun continuing next week!
In D&T this term we are focusing on Healthy Breakfasts as part of our work on food and nutrition. Today we tasted a variety to fruits that people may have for or with their breakfasts. We explored fresh, dried and tinned fruits. We thought of words to describe the taste of the fruits such as sweet, sour, juicy, bitter, sticky.
To begin our work on Pirates in English this term Mrs Smith led a drama session. We thought about the different jobs that pirates would do aboard a pirate ship and what their lifestyle may have been like.
We had a fantastic visit to Crocodiles of the World today. We were very excited to see the different animals, learn about Australian animals and about different animals groups such as reptiles. We took part in a variety of activities including a meerkat feed/talk, Nile crocodile feed/talk and and an otter feed/talk. We then had a session with our leader Colin who is Australian and talked to us about some of the Australian animals that he had worked with along with telling us more information about a variety of reptiles. We were Fearless Foxes and got to touch a python called Malcolm and a 3-year old American alligator called Jackson. We learnt that reptiles including snakes are not as scary as we are led to believe. After our talk we had some more time to explore the venue and see more animals, including a real life kookaburra! Take a look at some of our photos from our visit:
