Fantastic work Y1!
Your teachers and parents were all so proud to see the wonderful Gardeners World assembly on Thursday. All the children worked incredibly hard to learn their lines and the different songs too. We hope you enjoyed the fruit salad kebabs that the children made for you as part of our design technology project. They certainly enjoyed tasting the different fruits and planning their ingredients! The kebabs tasted delicious and looked incredibly colourful - a super summer treat
Our beans are starting to grow! We have loved watering and watching to see the tiny white roots emerging in the bottom of our cups and now the little green shoots starting to poke out from the soil. It's not happening as fast as many of the children would like, but the bean plants are definitely growing! We have been using them to encourage us to write non-fiction text as we have all started to write our own bean diary information books. Next week we will bring the bean plant and our diary home. We hope that the bean plants will continue to grow. There will be certificates for all who manage to grow a bean pod.
Our collective worship theme this term is forgiveness. We have been learning that it is important to forgive people and not hold grudges.
The children have really enjoyed singing this song:
Year 1 have been designing and making their own shields! In science we have been investigating materials to find the best one to make a shield for our friend Erik the medieval knight. We found out that the best material was metal because it is strong, will not break easily and is waterproof so will not get soggy if it rains.
Check out our amazing shields and our impressive shield wall.
We were really lucky to have a visit from some drummers today and they brought 30 drums with them for us to play! What a NOISE!!! It was brilliant fun to learn about rhythm and the different ways in which can play the drums to make different sounds.
Halton Castle and Norton Priory
Year 1 had a fantastic time at Halton Castle and Norton Priory Museum on Tuesday. The children were very excited to walk around the ruins of the castle and learn all about who lived in the castle. They got to role play as knights defending/attacking a castle, and learnt moves with swords.
In the afternoon we got to dress up as people from the medieval ages who might have lived in a castle, build Motte and Bailey sandcastles and even design our very own family crests.
The children thoroughly enjoyed the day, and even though the weather was terrible they were so well behaved.
In literacy we have been looking at poetry that rhymes and has a pattern.
We have been practising and performing poems to the rest of the class. Check them out!
Museum of Liverpool
We had a wonderful trip today which tied in with our Toys topic. We looked at the toy timeline and then played with toys, old and new. It was interesting to find out more about what they were made of and how they worked. Our favourites were still the cars, the dolls and the dressing up!
Little Liverpool was great fun - here we played with water and followed the alphabet around the walls. We finished the day in the Tent of Stories and heard more from Oliver Jeffers and an author who was new to us, Chris Riddell. His book called The Emperor of Absurdia really was funny and we loved all the crazy puppets which we got to use to help us tell the story.
Thank you as always to those parents who accompanied us on our trip; we couldn't have done it without you!
What a fantastic week we have had getting to know more about our Y1 author: Oliver Jeffers.
Ask us about the books we have read and enjoyed!
To find out more about Oliver Jeffers you can follow this link to his website.
The children loved bringing in their toys to share with the rest of the class. We asked lots of questions using our questioning words:
* What is it made from?
* Is it new?
* Who gave you this toy?
* What does it do?
* Why do you like it?
* How many people can play with it?
What a fun afternoon!
Thank you for all your bottles and lids for our Design Technology project. The children designed and built their own space rockets. In their evaluations, a fair few children mentioned that the thing they would improve if they were to build the rockets again was that they would really be able to fly!!! We had great fun with our "junk modelling" and just as much fun flying them around the playground and hall.
We have been working really hard to take away using counters, blocks and number lines over the past fortnight. As the children get to grips with writing these subtractions down in a formal 'number sentence' we have been practising with these bibs! What a great way to see the numbers they need to change and how to structure their written work.
On Tuesday the children of Year 1 jetted off to Spaceport, on the Wirral, for a fun packed day of exploring. The children were treated to a film about astronauts in a huge theatre dome that showed the movie on the ceiling; a simulator ride in space; a tour of the solar system in a space pod and the children even got to test out launching rockets! They had an amazing day exploring space and learnt lots of new things. Thank you to all our parent helpers who came along.
Year 1 took a tour around Croxteth Hall in the morning – looking at the differences between the servants’ quarters downstairs and the richer surroundings of upstairs. We go to have a hands-on experience where we tried to discover the uses of lots of old household objects. This was really tricky!
After lunch we went on a Bear Hunt around the grounds of Croxteth Park and we really did find a bear!
We have been enjoying sharing 'Stories with Familiar Settings'. We're Going On a Bear Hunt by Michael Rosen and Shark in the Park by Nick Sharratt are two excellent examples. In school we have been reading the books and joining in with the repetitive patterns. Maybe you could listen to these versions from YouTube and join in at home?
We have been practising our mouse skills in the computer suite with these games. Several children have asked for them to be added to our class page so they can play them at home. They are not educational games but are useful for getting to grips with a mouse as a method for controlling a computer...the children are all experts at using a touch screen on the school iPads or touch pad on the laptops, but the "old-fashioned" mouse proved tricky for many! Click on the mouse to access a selection of simple mouse skill games.

All About Me!
Year one’s topic for the first half term is All About Me. We have transformed our learning areas into a Doctor’s Surgery where the children can learn about the body through role play. In our topic lessons we will be learning about the local area, our bodies and how we are all different. The children will look at Liverpool and the United Kingdom on an interactive map and will learn about addresses.
