Jack And The Beanstalk

Under The Deep Blue Sea

Without much ado, let's meet the Year 1 crew.....

Year 1 have been busy getting out and about having fun in the sun

We have had great fun with all our toys...building, making, writing, sharing, designing, working, thinking, creating........ busy bees! 

We went outside to have a musical march! In our story today Elmer and his friends had a big celebration so we thought we would join them and make our own music....Edwards has talent!

Making marvellous music as we move!

The story of Elmer the colourful patchwork elephant inspired us to get creative and make our own colourful patterns and prints...

The story of Noah's Ark reminded us of all the different animals in our wonderful world...all shapes and sizes, patterns and colours. Let me introduce you to our very own Lenny Lion, Sammy Snake, Geraldine Giraffe and Zac the Zebra... We even built our own arks and painted our bright rainbows

"Sharing is Caring"

Rainbow Fish felt good when he shared his shiny silver scales

Wow...look at the rainbow colours on our bubbles!

We went for a colour walk to match our colour cards - we had to look for different shades 

We have been thinking about colourful food....we made yummy rainbow fruit kebabs and our  'p' pizza went down a treat!....out toppings were all just 'p'erfect!

We have been discovering that if you mix two colours together you can make a new colour ...look at our colour investigation findings.

Out and About on our Autumn Adventure...

We went on an outdoor adventure today through the school forest and Lynn from the Forest Service told us all about Autumn and the animals that live in the forest. We collected leaves, pretended to be birds, observed the seasonal changes around us, found sycamore seeds and worked out some animal clues ......it was fun!

We collected leaves and twigs to build hedgehog houses to help them hibernate         ...have a look, can you see the hiding hedgehog?

We were creative using natural materials to design and make a ......

Look out....Oh no.... It's a ....Gruffalo!

We have has a busy week exploring the Gruffalo story and had lots of learning opportunities. Watch us in action...

We heard the story of Zacchaeus and how he climbed a tree to see Jesus. Look at some of our work.

We investigated some facts about owls. We made owl pictures and autumn trees for our class display. We read a lot of books about owls....our favourite was 'Owl Babies' 

We had fun making shapes with sticks we collected in the forest. We had to think about how many sticks we needed for different shapes. 

We are going deeper into the woods.....just like Goldilocks! We are having fun finding out about bears and homes. Look at some of us during our themed play activities.

We have been busy learning our letter sounds and word building. We blend the sound together to read words and we are working really hard to write our words.

Can you read any of our words?

Guess who came to Edwards today?.....Ho Ho Ho...it was Santa! We were all so excited when we heard he was coming to see us and look how he arrived - Charlie the Clydesdale brought him in his carriage. Miss Douglas told Santa we were all so good! He left a sack of treats in our classroom for us...THANKS SANTA!
