Religious Education

During R.E on Friday we went to Saint Paul's Church. We learnt that buildings can be symbolic and become a special and sacred space. We also looked at many things Christians use in worship.  

Natural History Museum Trip 

As part of our Science learning, Year 1 went to see mammals, reptiles, amphibians, birds and fish at the Natural History Museum. We became explorers in the Museum garden and we went on a Minibeast hunt. 

Science

In science we learnt that herbivores eat plants, carnivores eat meat and omnivores eat both plants and meat. We grouped the animals in a Venn diagram according to what they eat.   

Maths

This week in Maths we have been learning about fractions. We learnt about one half and one quarter. We decorated a paper plate with our favourite food, then we cut the plate into one half or one quarter.  

Religious Education 

This week we learnt about a Christian celebration called Mardi Gras. We made Mardi Gras masks and answered some questions about the special celebration.

History

Our history topic is about historical heroes. We have been learning about who Florence Nightingale was and what she was famous for. We carried out a role play to help us understand how Florence cared for the soldiers.  

Religious Education 

We have been learning about Mothering Sunday. We made cards and flowers for our Mums. 

Maths

In Maths we have been learning about what multiplication means. We used cubes to make lots of 2s, 5s and 10s. 

 

 

Religious Education 

This week we went to St Paul’s Church to watch Clare demonstrate a baptism. Clare talked about what priests wear during a baptism, choosing God Parents, the holy water and the prayers that happen when a Christian baby is welcomed into the world.   

 

Religious Education 

We learnt about St James. We made and decorated a scallop shell. The scallop shell is the symbol of St James.

 

Design and Technology 

Our DT project was about making Fruit Kebabs. We really enjoyed tasting a variety of fruits before choosing the fruits we wanted to use when making our kebabs. 

Geography

In Geography, we used a map to find different countries in the United Kingdom. We used geographical vocabulary such as land, sea and beach to describe the different landscapes. 

 

 

History

On the 11th of November we had a two minute silence to remember the soldiers who died in the war. We made poppies and stuck them together to make a wreath. We talked about why we wear poppies on Remembrance Day.

This week we learnt about the Diwali story. We dressed up in traditional Indian costumes and carried out a role play of the story. We made rangoli patterns with beans and lentils and we also made Diwali cards.   

Religious Education

In RE we were learning about the Jewish celebration of Succot. We carried out a rotation of three different activities. In the first rotation, we designed our own Sukkah on paper. A Sukkah is a special shelter that Jewish people build with their families in their garden. In the second rotation we made a Sukkah out of bread and avocado. In the third rotation we talked about Succot, drew pictures and wrote words to show our understanding of the festival.

 

June Savage, one of our school Governors, visited our classroom to see all the fun learning that we were doing.
