This week, we have been writing a setting description about our class story The Wombat Goes Walkabout. For this, we wrote about different scenes in the book and we described each part and what was happening in each scene. I have been amazed at how descriptive their writing has been and the writing has improved as the week has gone on. Have a look below at some of the writing they have done.
Today, we started our new art topic. For our first lesson, we focussed on how to take a photograph. We first discussed how to access the camera on the iPad. Then, we looked how to hold and position an iPad correctly to ensure that a good quality picture can be taken. After, we took advantage of the lovely day and we went outside to take some pictures. The children really enjoyed doing this and they took some great pictures. Have a look below to se them in action.
This half term, year 1 have been looking, organising and comparing groups based on different properties. Today, we have been sorting shapes into groups based on their shape, colour and size. First, the children had to create appropriate labels for different groups that were already made. Then, they had to make their own groups and give each group a label. Have a look below to see what we were doing.
Yesterday, year 1 went on their very first school trip to Wigfield Farm. As part of the trip, we looked around the farm identifying a range of animals and looking at whether each animal was a mammal, bird, fish, amphibian or reptile and whether each animal was an omnivore, herbivore and carnivore. During our visit to Wigfield, we were very lucky to have a change to stroke, feed and hold a range of animals. All the children were very excited to do this and they all had a lovely time. Lindsey our guide for the day, mentioned how brilliant all the children had been during their visit and I am so proud of all the children with how they behaved whilst at the farm. We took plenty of photos during our trip so have a look below to see how much fun we had.
