Year 1 news...

Teddy Bears Picnic

Year 1 have had a very busy day celebrating the beginning of our new topic- Fabulous Food. First we wrote invitations to our favourite teddies to ask them to come to school for a picnic. Then we designed a sandwich and made them ourselves. Finally we enjoyed our delicious picnic with our friends.


Reading Buddies

We met up with our Reading Buddies during Poetry Week. It was lovely to hear all about the poem our buddy had been learning about. We can’t wait to see them again soon.


Puppets

We designed puppets by deciding which colour felt we would like to use and what we would use to decorate them. We then made them by sewing two pieces of felt together. Finally we decorated them and evaluated them by thinking of what we would change if we made them again.


Year 1 Christmas Party

We had the best Christmas party with lots of party games and party food. We even played musical statues and pass the parcel.

 


Save the Children Christmas Jumper Day

On Friday 13th December we wore Christmas jumpers to help raise money for Save the Children. Here are some pictures of the fluffy, funny and colourful jumpers we wore!


Toys from a Long Time Ago

As part of our toy topic we looked at toys from a long time ago and some new toys. We sorted them into groups of toys that are around now and toys from a long time ago.


Computing

We made pictographs in our computing lesson which showed how many different coloured leaves we found in the playground. We used our log ins and passwords to access our Purple Mash accounts and select the correct application.


Room on the Broom Workshop

We had a parent/guardian workshop basing around the story Room on the Broom. During the afternoon children took part in crafts which involved drawing characters and making things with play dough. They even dressed up as the different characters and acted out parts of the story.

 


Well Being Day

On Thursday 24th November, we celebrated ‘Well Being Day’. Year groups carried out various activities throughout the day. Some of us had the opportunity to take part in peer massage- this was very relaxing! Others participated in Lego Therapy, which we loved! One class even had a karaoke session- this made us feel GREAT! Thank you Mrs Porter for our wonderful yoga session. It was a relaxing and lovely day at Mersey Park. We loved coming into school in our comfy slippers!

 


Toy Topic Entry Point

We had a very exciting day in Year 1 to begin our new topic on toys. We brought in our favourite toy and took part in a parade to show the rest of the year group. In the morning we wrote a description piece of writing about our toys and then sketched a drawing of them. There was even a little time left to play with our toys!
