Red Nose Day- Stop motion animation

Sloths Way Home
As part of our Red Nose Day activities, we worked together to create a set of different habitats. Then our Red Nose Sloth ventured out to find his way home. The children worked really hard in creating this wonderful animation but a special thank you to Harvey for his amazing voice over!

Why are some roads busier than others?

To help us to answer this question, we went out of school to carry out a traffic survey. We counted how many vehicles we could spot on two roads in our local area: Stuart Avenue and Clipstone Road West.

When we got back to school, we discussed which road was the busiest and made suggestions as to why it was busy. The children said that Clipstone Road West was a 'main road' and that it led to places like Asda, the church, other schools and the vet's where people might need to go.

Wind Power! In Geography we have been learning about how the wind can help our environment. We made windmills and used them to see where the best place to catch the wind was on our school grounds.

Miss Mumby's class visited the school library for the first time this week. The children were in awe of the lovely space and throroughly enjoyed selecting books to look at during their visit.

Engineers of the future!

Over the past two weeks, the children have been learning about Isambard Kingdom Brunel. By backing this learning up, we have read 'Rosie Revere, Engineer'. All of this learning has helped us to understand the role of an engineer. We have designed, planned, built, tested and evaluated our own constructions. As you can see by the images, we were all successful and each bridge did what it was suppose to do. However, after tested we looked at where the weaknesses were and how we would make them even better for next time! 

After harvesting some delicious vegetables from our growing garden, we turned them into soup. 

We carefully cut the veg into smaller pieces using the bridge technique to keep our finger safe. 

After we cut the veg into smaller pieces we then put it all into a soup maker before getting to try some. 

Some of us weren't a huge fan of the soup, but some of us LOVED IT!!! 

Magnificent Maths! We have been working on our place value and number skills, sorting out objects, matching numbers to the correct amount and counting. How fabulous are we?!

We used a range of natural materials to create transient art pictures. Some of our pictures were patterns, some were of objects and some were formed using our creative minds!

Our Values Afternoon- Respect

Year 1 have now kick started our 'School Values' work by looking at respect. We went around the school looking for respect flowers to plant on our respect garden poster. However, whilst looking we also found flowers that did not explain respect and these were thrown in the compost bin!

We are now ready to break down what respect is and how it can be shown over the next few weeks!
