Over Fairtrade Fortnight Y1 learnt all about Fairtrade and what Fairtrade is. As part of this we baked some delicious chocolate and banana muffins using Fairtrade ingredients. We know what the Fairtrade logo looks like and we noticed that the logo is on some of our favourite food!
Y1 went to the Yorkshire Wildlife Park.
What a fun day we had! We got up close to some creatures including a giant snail and a humming cockroach! Some children were really brave and held both the snail and the cockroach. We saw lots of animals around the park and talked about whether these animals live in hot and cold places and why.
We all had a wonderful time this morning using phonics to design our own monster! Can you guess who made the funniest name?
This term we are looking at the story Handa’s Surprise. So far, we have read the story and looked at the 7 different fruits Handa puts in her basket. This morning we tried the 7 fruits from the story (orange, banana, mango, pineapple, avocado, passion fruit and guava) and described them to each other. Can you guess which fruit was our favourite?
This term, we are looking at hot and cold places and their features. So far we’ve talked about different hot and cold places such as; Spain, Africa and Antarctica and we have sorted pictures into groups. We are going to be looking at what animals live in these hot and cold places. Soon we will be going to the Yorkshire Wildlife Park to learn more about animals and their habitats.
Today KS1 walked down to Park Academy to take part in a multi skills workshop. We worked in teams of 10 to complete lots of different activities which tested a variety of P.E skills such as: balancing, jumping, throwing and sprinting.
This week we learnt about how to be safe on the internet and around fires. We had really good discussions about how to be safe and what to do/who to tell if something upsets us on the internet. We discussed how to stay safe around fires, what we should and what we shouldn’t do and what a good/bad looks like. #safetyweek
Y1 were extremely lucky to have Andy (story teller) working with us! We looked at the story ‘Dogger’ and did lots of fun activities based on the book. We even made our own class story about a whale, bat and a magic key.
We recently took part in a healthy living workshop where we learnt all about being healthy. We did various activities some of which included: making fruit kebabs, making healthy lunchboxes and doing exercise.
