Maths Activity of the week

 

We are looking at measuring capacity, weight, height and length.

Why not measure how tall all the members of your family are.

Look at how far you can all jump. Is anybody ready for the olympics long jump?

How much water does it take to fill your cup?
Help mummy/ daddy/ granny/ grandpa in the kitchen weigh out ingredients.  You can even see how much water it takes to fill up the sink and help your grown up with the washing up too! (That will help with your 40 acts of kindness for lent - double points!)

 

(Any work that you do and would like to bring in, I would love to see!)

Our Learning Journey

Around the world in 63 days

One of Mrs Cullip's favourite days of the year... World Book Day! We enjoyed our parade, retelling our story from English 'Up and Down' to Reception, writing about our characters and doing art with Year 2.

Make a pancake, pat, pat, pat. Do not make it fat, fat, fat. You must make it flat, flat, flat. Make a pancake just like that!

Storm Doris can't stop Year 1 from learning. Even with a power cut we still took our flight from Antarctica to Australasia with our two wonderful air stewards. We got to ask lots of questions and experience what it would be like to be on a plane.

How are penguins adapted to their environments? We explored how the wax layer on penguin helps them in the Antarctica.

Mr Grinling had a parcel sent to us by mistake. We said that we would look after his parcel but then we came back and it was open! Whatever was inside was loose and there were feathers everywhere. We used our directional language to follow the trail just like an explorer would give directions when following a map. After receiving a letter asking us to help set traps to catch the robotic seagull catchers we used our 3D knowledge to think of designs.

We headed back down to earth and looked at the continents where we could land by creating globes. Our globes now hang above our tables and we think they are wonderful. As we were learning about Neil Armstrong we headed back to his continent North America.

We blasted off into our topic on the Apollo 11 into space in the role of Neil Armstrong. It was great fun walking around on the moon and saying his famous words.... "That's one small step for man.... one giant leap for mankind."

We hope that you enjoyed the Miracle in Town as much as we enjoyed performing it!

We transformed into Elves helping Santa to show Elvis how to be kind and caring. We each wrote about how we could help Elvis.

To celebrate Hanukkah we created our very own Menorah lamps and explored Jewish resources that would be used during this festive time.

For road safety week we carried out a road traffic survey of what vehicles past our school and whether they were driving fast or slow. We then created a bar chart in Maths.

We carried out a Science investigation to see what would of happened if Samuel Pepys' didn't save his cheese.

Our very exciting trip to Chipping Norton Fire Station...Look out for our recount in the next Newsletter.

We enjoyed our spot hunt and ramble raising money for Children in Need. My fitbit recorded 9,474 steps! I think we all deserved lots of rest after that! Well done Year 1. I can't explain how proud I am of there efforts on the walk through the muddy puddles which was of course lots of fun!

We are continuing to have lots of fun during our Rugby Tots P.E lessons and are really developing our skills.

Friday afternoon craft fun creating fire pictures.

To celebrate Sukkot we created our very own Sukkah's. Thank you to everyone who provided blankets for us to use. It was a lot of fun as you can see...

Freshwater Theatre Company's visit on the Great Fire of London was a lot of fun and very inspiring. We learnt lots of facts, played games and acted out the Great Fire. It has inspired our learning as we move further through our topic.

In P.E we were looking at how close together the houses were in 1666 and went to sleep when suddenly there was a 'fire' in a bakery that spread. We fled out houses and became volunteer fire fighters helping to put out the 'fire'.

Just like Thomas Farriner we baked delicious loaves of bread... we didn't leave the oven on... phew!

What a busy but wonderful first week! We enjoyed showing Jude how brilliant we all are.
