Art Sculpltures (7 images)

Class Y1HM enjoyed making art sculptures using natural materials – in the style of Andy Goldsworthy, a Scottish artist. They took inspiration from the Norman shields and swords they have been investigating as part of their Conquering Castles topic.

Amazing Australia (10 images)

1HM has thoroughly been enjoying our topic ‘Amazing Australia’ this term. Following an aeroplane ride to Australia…. all in one afternoon! We have been doing a variety of fun activities to bring the learning of our topic to life. We used kangaroos to help us with maths, painted boomerangs using the Aboriginal style of dot paining. We learnt about The Great Barrier Reef. Can you guess what fish was made with playdough? In DT we made Australian rain shakers and used them in music to keep the rhythm of a song. We can’t wait to carry on our exciting learning journey!

A busy start to Year 1 (23 images)

The children have had a busy start to Year 1. They have had to learn about class expectations and develop stamina when working. Hopefully this has been lots of fun as well as hard work! We had an exciting Inspire Day for our topic ‘Terrific Toys’ when a dinosaur came to visit us. Later in September, we had a visit to Weston super Mare beach as part of the Big Day Out which gave us lots of opportunities to develop our confidence and social skills. There are also some pictures taken in the first few weeks of Year 1 showing children counting practically.

3D Shapes (12 images)

In Year 1 we have been learning about 3D shapes and have enjoyed doing lots of practical activities to reinforce our knowledge of the names of the shapes and to start to understand some of their properties. We used marshmallows and cocktail sticks to make cubes and pyramids. We used playdough to make cylinders, spheres – and were challenged to make pyramids and cubes. We also used junk modelling cuboids to make castles and created the cylindrical towers by rolling card – which gave us an understanding of the nets of cylinders. Our Castle If you come into our classroom you will also see our castle – which we used in our Inspire Day. This is now part of our Book Corner and Role Play area.

Year 1 - Term 3 2016 (18 images)

This term we have been learning all about ‘Amazing Australia’. For our first day back to school we took a trip to Australia. We queued at Passport Control ready to board the plane and go to Australia! We soared through the sky and thought about what we wanted to do once we land. During our theme we have decorated boomerangs using traditional Aboriginal Art method of dot painting. The looked beautiful! We even had a boomerang throwing competition to see who’s could go the furthest. Unfortunately our boomerangs did not come back to us! Take a look at our other photos which shows what we have been doing in English, Maths, Science, DT and Computing!
