As part of our History topic (Toys) we’ve been making our own games with hula-hoops today.
Do you think these sorts of games are better than iPads and X-Boxes?
Year 1 used their sense of smell to detect things like orange peel, chocolate biscuits and grass. They were hidden from view in pairs of socks!
We’ve tried expressive art and using chalks on a dark background. We’ve also been doing some sketching of landmarks in Tyldesley. Here are the children hard at work. Think I got most of them although a few had already skipped off to get ready for lunch by the time I got my iPad out!
We’ve combined PHSE (Keeping Healthy) and our Geography and Art topics by going on a mile walk around our local area. We have looked at local landmarks and Mrs Swanton told us about the history of Hindsford Brook, Factory Street and the Pelican Centre.
We’ll be doing some art work tomorrow using some of the photos we have taken.
We’ve been working hard with problem solving with number bonds today. All of the children worked really hard but I’ve just been looking through the books and have noticed Alana’s work. I’m blown away by her systematic working out to find all possible answers! And it’s neat too! On top of all of this, all of the children have accessed this problem independently. They have not had any help from an adult, not even to read or understand the question!
Bravo Alana and Year 1! 👌👍
We’ve looked at our work from yesterday and looked for any mistakes. Then we’ve tried again and hit the jackpot! I particularly like the look of concentration on Evie’s face! ❤️😀
We’ve blitzed number bonds to ten this week. Some children have started to investigate other number bonds too!
Our Braniacs group found out about mammals, reptiles, amphibians, birds and insects! Great job, guys!
Well done to Bethany for winning our Year 1 design for our values poster. Our Y1 value is respect and we think Bethany captured this really well.
Sorry the picture has uploaded sideways, Bethany! My iPad isn’t behaving! 😂
