Our current topic is called 'The Carnival of the Animals'. We have been learning so much about so many different animals, it's been a real eye opener!
Today, we were looking at fish. We discussed in class lots of facts about fish and then we had to identify and label the 'features' of a fish. To help us, we took a trip down to our office reception area to have a look at our real fish. Here, we were able to point out the fishes features, such as their gills, tails, fins e.t.c.
Today, in pairs, we played a game. It was all about addition and subtraction in maths, and we had lots of fun! The game was called 'The Tallest Tower'.
First, we all made a tower using ten cubes. Next, we took it in turns to roll the dice and move forward that number of spaces. If we landed on an add square, we added that number of cubes to our tower. However, if we landed on a subtract square, we would have to take that many cubes from our tower. Whoever had the tallest tower at the end of the game was the winner!
Welcome to Year 1!
Our Year 1 teachers are Mrs Price, Mrs Smith and Miss Mairs.
Last week, year 1S decided to take their writing outside to enable them to get a real taste of winter.
They visited the 'writers' cafe' where they each got a welcoming cup of hot chocolate to warm them up on such a cold winter's morning.
Year 1 then set about with their writing task which was to describe winter by using lots of adjectives.
Once they had edited their work, it was then displayed on the board back in the classroom.
Year 1 did an amazing job!
