This week: This week, we wrote a narrative based around a short clip we watched about ‘Fire man Sam’. We identified the opening, problem and the solution. The children created a story map and a story mountain which helped them write the story. Some children even changed aspects of the story to create their own versions.
This week: This week the children have been looking at money. They have been involved in a range of activities including sorting coins, playing shops, creating different amounts using coins, coin bingo and looking at the values of coins.
Next week: is SCIENCE week and the children will be involved in lots of egg – speriments!
On Monday, we had our very own ‘Tudor day’, where we recreated ‘life’ during The Great Fire of London. This provided valuable learning opportunities for our Year 1 children through a combination of role play, practical activities, dancing, quizzes and a treasure hunt. It was an amazing experience and the children enjoyed learning what it would have been like living in the year 1666. At the end of the day the children watched as we set fire to our own Tudor houses and watched them burn, just like what happened in the Great Fire! The children got a chance to discuss what happened and why the flames spread so quickly! It was a fantastic day! We would like to than you all for dressing the children up so well for the event. Your continues support for events like these is deeply appreciated 🙂
Christmas show success – 05.12.19
We are all extremely proud of our Year 1 children this week as they excelled in their recent Christmas performance. They have worked hard these past weeks, rehearsing lines, lyrics to songs and dance routines.
We would like to thank you for your support with costumes and preparing the children for their performances.
Visit to St John’s church – 19.11.19
The children went on a trip to St John’s Church in Palmers Green to meet Rev Julie and learnt all about Christianity. The children had a tour of the church where they saw the chapel, the altar and the font. Rev Julie even baptised our class toy and showed the children how to light a candle to say a prayer. The children got to try the special bread and try on the priests robes. What a fantastic morning!
Toy making workshop – 15.10.19
To conclude, our fantastic topic on ‘Toys’ this half term, on Tuesday and Wednesday the Year 1 classrooms were transformed into a toy making work shop. This amazing workshop allowed the children to discover toys of the past and make their very own wooden toy. All the children were completely involved in the toy making process and used a range of tools and techniques, including sanding, drilling and hammering. All of the toys that were made are based on examples from the last 3,500 years.
