Year 1 Calendar
Please have a look at our calendar to give you important dates as well as extra homework ideas.
Our new Big Question is:
Where in the world is Paddington?
Our new Big Question is:
What colour was the past?
We made this picture of Lichfield Cathedral to find out what our Big Question was.
We thought of lots of things that make Lichfield special.
This week, we walked around our school to look at what was inside and outside the fence.
In English we have been reading The three little pigs. We pretended to be the wolf to ask him why he was trying to blow the pig's houses down.
In Design and technology, we have been designing houses for the wolf to live in. We have used lego to build models and used pencils to draw a different design.
science we have been learning about our five senses.
We used our senses and discovered lots of interesting
things in our school grounds.
This week in Year 1 we have been historians.
In history we learned about what it was like to be a child in the past (The 1970s).
Do you remember any of these things?
In RE we have been learning what it means to be a Christian. We looked at different symbols, people and places that are special to Christians. We used our "Relationship" value to work as a team to make posters to show what we know.
We received a magic box with something special inside it. We wondered what it could be and found out that the special thing was us.
(We saw our reflection in the magic mirror that was inside the box!)
We learned that our feelings make us special and unique.
The colour monster helped us to talk about our feelings and to understand them.
We decided that we wanted to be the green monster because he feels calm and that when we feel calm we are relaxed and ready to learn.
WOW!!! Look at our fantastic Maths work.
We have been sorting, counting and making numbers.
