Sort that Fruit!!
In ICT this week, we learned about how to sort an object by a criteria.
This ties into our Maths learning as well.
We used our mouse to move the object to the correct circle.
Then we typed in what the criteria was for each circle.
It was lots of fun to learn something new in ICT.
We worked in groups this week to practise a poem about Spring.
We will be learning about Spring in our next Science topic.
We took turns reading or decided to read all together.
We were nervous but we performed the poem in front of our classmates.
Some of us even decided to act out some of the words.
That was so much fun.
Brasilia vs. London
Today was our last day of learning about the United Kingdom.
We focused our learning on London and how it compares to that of another city.
We compared London to Brasilia, the capital city of Brazil.
Brazil is in South America so it is very different to London.
We found that Brasilia is very hot and has fewer people than London.
But we found that there are similarities as well.
They both have transport systems.
They eat delicious food and they both love football.
We are off to the Library.
In History this term we have been learning about the Gun Powder Plot. In this lesson we performed a role play, we acted out the main events of the Plot.
In Maths we have been learning about measuring. We used rulers, cubes, our hands, our feet and measuring tape to measure different objects around the room.
On Monday Year 1 went to the British Museum. We became artists for the day. We sketched different artefacts in the museum on paper, then we carved our favourite picture on a styrofoam board. Finally we printed it onto paper using paint.
We are learning to write simple instructions about how to make a milkshake, but before we write the instructions we had to make some chocolate milkshakes!
The theme for RE Day this year was co-operation. We learnt why it is important to co-operate with others through role plays and games.
Year 1 celebrated Black History Month by performing a dance about a naughty African spider called Anansi.
We went on a plant hunt in the local area. We saw lots of different plants!
Year 1 have started our MEND sessions this term. In MEND we will learn about how to keep our minds healthy, exercise and healthy eating. This week we tasted some strawberries and played some fun games outside.
This term in Science we are learning about plants. We looked at what plants need to grow and we even planted our own beans!
We talked about the Golden Rules and how it keeps us safe and helps us learn.
