Our amazing homework!
Look at what we have been up to...
We were very lucky to have a visit from some African dancers and drummers! They taught us about where they used to live and then taught us a dance. We even got a quick go on the drums!
We had a great time on World Book Day! We did a scavenger hunt around school looking for books and poems. We also shared our favourite books with our friends. And of course we enjoyed dressing up as our favourite characters!
Our new topic is about the seaside. Today we had a seaside day! We had sand to explore, we made beach huts out of lollipop sticks, we made sea creatures, boats and even a lighthouse and role-played going on a trip to the seaside. We also made some ice cream and finished our day by trying it.
In science we were learning about materials. In the story of the 3 little pigs, they had to build their houses themselves from materials that were available to them. We had to use some wood, Lego bricks and lollipop sticks as well as play-dough as a joining material, to try and build a house. Then we tested them to see how strong they were.
We LOVE Lego in Year 1 and build with it whenever we have the chance! Here are some of our Lego models from lessons and well-being sessions.
Over several weeks, we created some amazing windmills for a mouse to live in; here are the windmills we designed and made. We had to check that they worked too!
In computing we looked at different artists and created some amazing digital art. Here is us in action making them!
At the end of our topic on the senses, we made sensory boards for younger children to play with. We had to make the bright and colourful and make different parts have different textures.
Beatriz Milhazes makes art using shapes. We used one of her pieces of artwork to inspire our own circle abstract art.
