Children in Need!
Year 1 enjoyed taking part in raising money for Children in Need this year! They look fabulous all dressed up in spots and Pudsey clothes!
The children enjoyed making and drawing poppies, in our continuous provision, as part of our activities on Remembrance Day. Don’t they look amazing!
Today the children have been exploring Magnets as part of our ‘Everyday Materials’ topic in Science. First they all had a go at feeling the effects of repelling Magnets. Then they were given the task of getting a paper clip out of a beaker full of water, without spilling any! The children had great ideas! Some used string to lower the magnet in, whilst others manuvered the paper clip up the side of the beaker. Year 1 also enjoyed using the magnets to guide paper clips around mazes. We were fabulous Scientists today!
Exploring Primary Colours!
In Art our topic is called ‘Colour Creations’. Year 1 have been learning about Primary Colours and as part of our exploration, the children have looked into the Artist Piet Mondrian. They had a go a creating a piece of their own Mondrian artwork using paint, but only in the Primary Colours. Some children then went onto, independently, use collage materials to create their own piece of artwork.
Exploring Numbers to 10!
Year 1 have been exploring numbers to 10. They worked in pairs to create Museums based around one number. They had to find as many different ways to represent their number using: practical maths equipment, physical objects, drawings, writing...They were brilliant Mathematicians today!
