Give this week’s Phonics challenge a try here!
Today we celebrated TT Rock stars Day where all the children dressed up as cool little rock stars. The children had lots of fun dancing to rock star music as well as having a giggle at all the adults costumes and face make-up. TT Rock stars is a maths programme that the school use for timetables. The aim of the game is to concentrate on a different timetable every week and keep on practising it until you can take the next rock start test. Each time you correctly pass each test you just keep on moving up. In Year 1 we have been learning to count on in 2s with a catchy tune.
Have a look at the video below and see if you can count along too!
Well done to all of the children who dressed up today you all looked fab! We also had all of the Year 1 team dress up as rock stars as well. They had face paints and even funky coloured hair spray colours in their hair. They all looked just as awesome as the children.
Below are some photos from the day:
From all of the Year 1 Team, have a great weekend and remember to….
This week we have been super busy learning lots of new things! To start off our learning journey this week in Guided Reading we have been reading the story of The Ugly Duckling. The story is all about a little duckling that is different to his brothers and sisters and he has a real problem with other birds calling him ugly. He gets so upset and sad that he leaves home to find someone who will love him for being just him. The ending of the story sees the ugly duckling turn into a beautiful swan and his dream of becoming a beautiful swan comes true. The moral of the story is to embrace being different and that it is okay to be different to others because you will still be accepted just the way you are.
In Maths we have been learning about Volume and Capacity.
The children have really enjoyed exploring both measures and they were even maths detectives today. We carried out an experiment based on what Woody thought about capacity and volume.
He said “I think that the capacity of the jars is going to be the same and the volume of the jars are going to be the same”. We explored this theory and the children decided that Woody was wrong about the volumes of the sweet jars because they all had different numbers in each one. However he was correct about the capacity of each of the jars because the space inside each one of them is exactly the same. Well worked everyone, below are some photos from our experiment today.
Take a look at some photos:
Can you beat this week’s challenge?
Give it a try here!
On Friday 1st of November Rabbit Class kick started the first of our Year 1 class assemblies. The children were fantastic at learning their lines and remembering all the words to the class songs. They have all worked so hard and all of the Year 1 Team are super proud of them! A big well done and thank you to the adults who worked with the children to make the class assembly such a success. For those parents and carers who weren’t able to come along on the day, we have the video below for you to watch.
Well done all!
