In Year 1, they have been making buns to eat! As well as being a great way to explain instructions, it was also a chance to do some cookery. For Fairtrade week, they flavoured the buns with chocolate and banana to help farmers receive a fair wage for their crops. All of Year 1 received a well-earned badge for all of their hard work!
This term half term Year 1's imaginative learning project is called 'Dinosaur Planet'. They will be discovering facts, digging up fossils and working out what life was like when the dinosaurs ruled the Earth!
Year 1 had a fantastic time on Roald Dahl Day and got dressed up in extremely creative costumes. They also did some great labelling of some of Roald Dahl’s most famous characters .It was a gloriumptious day!All of the children worked very hard indeed.
This week in Year 1 they took a tasty trip to Pizza Express. All different shapes and sizes were made and invented. They will soon be writing some extremely bossy instructions of how to make the perfect pizza. I’m sure their family and friends had a delicious meal that night!
Here is some of the excellent learning in Year 1 last year:
Can you remember being small? Being a baby and learning to crawl Do you recall a favourite toy, maybe a teddy bear or a best-loved book? Look back at family photographs pf special occasions, perhaps holiday snapshots or a birthday or two! Remember a wedding or a christening and find a funny photograph of your parents when they were young! Learn how to write a diary of days gone by and find out about the days before you were born: it’s called history and it’s all about the past. Then make a special memory box; a memory box, to keep special thins. In years to come you can revisit them and remember how you looked when you were young.
Memories are special…let’s make some more.
Miss Dakin visiting with Sam
Miss Dakin and her son Sam came in to visit all of Year 1. Year 1 were really prepared and asked lots of sensible questions. Miss Dakin brought in some things that Sam needs to keep him safe, warm and happy. The children loved seeing him and were empathetic towards him when he was sleeping.
KERPOW! Intergalactic greetings, young heroes. It’s time to rescue the planet from evil villains! Who’s your favourite superhero? Maybe your heroes are ordinary people who’ve achieved great things. Or is it those people who save lives in our emergency services that you admire the most? Superheroes have super senses. Use your senses to identify mystery items by their taste, smell, sound and touch. What do true superheroes eat to keep their senses and special powers sharp? Can we stop the dastardly plans of Professor Slime? He’s dropping his villainous instructions around town. We must stop following them, but can we make it in time? Is that phone box free? Please excuse me…I have to save the world! ZAP! WHIZZ! ZOOOOM!
Fairtrade Banana and Chocolate Muffins
Year 1 loved making banana and chocolate muffins for our Fairtrade Fortnight at school. We drew accurate pictures for each stage of making them so we should be able to replicate them. If you wish to try and make them at home, please visit http://www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/9770/banana-and-chocolate-muffins
