A pirate themed day full of fun and putting our pirate learning to the test! We had to fulfil pirate duties such as check the rigging, steer the ship and make grog for the rest of our crew. We even had to use our pirate names and were not allowed to use our regular names. Some of us had names such as Jack Landlubber!
We used our knowledge of directional language to read and navigate clues to find some treasure!
This half term in Literacy, Year 1 we have been writing our own version of Handa’s Surprise. In small groups we acted out the different events in the story and then orally composed and wrote our own story. The pictures show us working in our groups orally composing the sentences we want to use.
After writing our own version and then changing the fruit to our favourite we have begun to write a non-chronological report about elephants. Our photos show us with some facts about elephants and deciding whether these facts are real facts or fake facts.
In Art we have been colour mixing using the primary colours, red, yellow and blue as well as black and white. We mixed the colours to make brown, green and grey.
In Geography, we have been learning about the different seasons and the typical weather that we would see in each season. We have also been ‘weathermen’ and made rain gauges to collect the rain fall over 3 weeks. We have looked at words such as prediction and actual, to help us complete the recording of actual rainfall in a table.
In Maths we have been learning to count accurately counting out different amounts to match the number. We then were able to add one more to the number and record by completing a sentence.
We tasted the fruit from the story Handa's surprise to help us with thinking of adjectives to use in our writing. We acted out the story to help us remember the order things happened. We ordered pictures from the story and talked about which animal took the fruits from Handa's baket.
We have been using paint to try and experiment with our colour mixing.
We were very excited to welcome Conrad Burdekin the author and poet into school for the day. He worked with all the children in Year 1 to help with their creative writing. He read us some of his poems which were really funny! Then he helped us to create our own stories.
In Year 1 the children are excpected to be able to read and spell words known as common exception words. Please help your child by regularly helping them to learn these words.
