We have been working very hard and having lots of fun at home.

We had lots of fun becoming scientists with Mrs McCarthy We were testing the different types of soil and working out whether they were sand, clay or silt. 


Becoming Scientists.

We were very lucky to have the artist High Templeton come and visit our school. He taught us how to use water colour to paint a picture of a landscape. We painted pictures of Carrington Moss, a very important local area to us. Have a look at some of our amazing paintings below!

Fitness Friday! We started the day with a Wake up Shake up. When we took the register, the children stood up in their places to get more active. It was such a miserable day so we couldn't get outside, but we enjoyed a french disco '5 A Day' in the classroom! Here are some pictures.

The Magical Toy Museum came to visit Year 1. We looked at bears from the past up until today. We learnt where 'teddy bears' got their name and we had to cuddle the bears to make the bears to make them happy.

The children really enjoyed learning about old dolls. We danced like the stiff, old pot doll, we danced in poses like the Barbie and we showed off our muscles like Action Man.

In PSHE we were talking about what makes a good friend. We made 'Friend Wanted' posters and included all of the qualities of a good friend.

We had such a lovely day with our teddy bears. The children made houses and beds for them in class and we enjoyed a hot chocolate and biscuits for our Teddy Bears' Picnic!

Our longitudinal study in Science is to observe a tree throughout the year. We talked about and looked at the colour of the leaves on the tree and investigated the ones that had fallen on the floor.

In geography lessons, we have been learning about 'human features' and 'physical features' in the world around us. We went onto the field to find things that were physical features (naturally occurring) and human features (man-made). The children recognised grass, trees and the sky as physical features. They recognised the gate, fence and houses as the human features.
