Children in Need

For Children in Need, all the children and adults in school dressed up in either Pudsey or 80s outfits to help raise money for the charity. Year 1 all looked amazing today and the school managed to raise over £200 for CIN. Have a look below at all our outfits!

Fractions

Today, we have started focusing on fractions in maths. During today’s lesson, the children had to cut objects in half. Before we did this, we discussed what half was and how many equal parts we needed. We then cut different objects making sure they were in two equal parts. Have a look below to see how we have done.

Wow!

These children have received wows this week for their improvement in their learning. Well done, keep up the hard work!

Printing

This week in art, the children have created some symmetrical monoprints. For this, the children had to design print on one half of the paper. When they had completed their designs, they folded the paper to create a symmetrical monoprint on the other side.

Afterwards, the children created their own motifs. For their motif, the children used cardboard and craft sticks to make a design which was the first letter of their name. Then, the children used different colours to print their motifs. Have a look below to see some of the finished pieces of work.

Skipping

This week during P.E we started to look at jumping / skipping. The children really enjoyed learning a new skill despite finding it challenging. We even practised during playtime. Have a look at some of the children practising their skipping.

The Room on the Broom

Yesterday, a witch asked us for help. She had lost all of her things and she wanted us to help her find them. We looked all around school and we found a broom, a cloak, a wand, a cat, a hat and a bow. We then wrote sentences telling the witch what we had found and where we found them.

Wows This Week

These boys have all received wows this week for their improvement in lessons and for being more independent in their learning. Well done boys!

Map of Clues!

Last week, we made wanted posters for Grandma Swagg to tell everyone what she looked like. Today, we have been told that there are some clues in Kexborough for where we might find her. We designed a map to show where she had been and we are going to send these to Officer Pugh so the maps can help him find her.

Printing

This week, we have been printing using vegetables to make a tree in autumn. We discussed why we used certain colours and we then discussed how we could overlap colours to make the tree more realistic. Have a look below to see some of our work.
