Welcome to Class 1M.

Your class teacher is Miss Metcalfe and also helping in the class is Mrs J Hacioglu.

On Thursday mornings the class will be taught by Mrs Green.

 

Our topic this half term is ‘Beside the Seaside’. Subjects are taught in the topic using a cross curricular approach. We will be investigating floating and sinking; exploring different materials and creating, testing and evaluating our own rafts. We will learn about the history of the RNLI and how to be safe around water and in the sun. We will look at Morecambe past and present, learning about traditional seaside activities and making our own Punch and Judy puppets. We will also have a joint pirate topic with reception.

We are being bright sparks! Today we have made simple circuits to power our lighthouses.

Look at our amazing finger puppets!

This week is sand week! We have learned about how sand is made and what it can be used for. We have also been thinking about why the sand doesn't disappear into the sea. We decided to investigate which other solids don't dissolve in water. We looked at coffee, sugar, salt, flour and pepper. We also really enjoyed it and gained lots of new knowledge.

Today we looked at, touched and smelled a real fish! We learned about the different parts of a fish and how that helps the fish to live under water. We now know what gills, fins and the lateral line is and why fish need them.

Today has been an amazing day! We received a letter from Archie suggesting our school may be where dinosaurs used to roam. We went outside and had a whole year dinosaur excavation. We found dinosaur bones, fossils, skeletons and even eggs!

We have had a really exciting day today creating our own dinosaur habitats. We have collected resources from outside and have used a range of Art skills to create super dinosaur worlds. We can't wait to take them home and play with them!

We are learning about habitats. We have talked about the different habitats animals lives in and have used Ipads and books to explore which habitats dinosaurs lived in.

This week in Maths, we are looking at volume and capacity. We have been comparing and ordering bottles by looking at their volume and have had lots of fun measuring different amounts of liquid in ml.

We are learning to present and interpret data in graphs. Today we made human and physical graphs.

In PE this term we will begin to use different equipment. We had great fun today using lots of different parts of our body to explore the different equipment.

This week in Maths, we are re-visiting place value. Today we have been exploring the different ways we can symbolise numbers.

History week was fantastic! We learned lots of different facts about castles, visited Hoghton Tower and celebrated with St.Luke's by having a medieval celebration.

In Science, this week, we are learning about forces. We have followed instructions to make space rockets, then investigated how we can change the amount of 'push' to determine the distance travelled. We tried to measure the distances the rockets flew and tried changing our designs to make the rockets streamlined.

Whatever Next

This week we have orally learned and performed 'Whatever Next'.

This week in maths we are looking at number. We are considering the different forms we see numbers, such as numeral, word and pictorial representations. Today we have been matching and sequencing numbers in their numeral and word form.

We have been learning about measuring and weight. We have weighed lots of different space rocks and then tried to sequence the rocks lightest to heaviest. We also had to measure out a specific amount of moon dust.

Gym Stars

 

Gym star coaches will be visiting for six weeks.

They bring exercise equipment such as exercise bikes, treadmills, cross trainers and rowers.

They will also help us to develop fundamental skills. We are working on our jumping, throwing, catching and hopping aswell as improving our co-ordination.

In celebration of Torrisholme book week we have been reading 'George's Marvellous Medicine'. We have made our own magical marvellous medicines and very special medicine bottles.

Golden Bear is back. Someone special set us a treasure hunt leading to Golden Bear wrapped up in a cupboard. He finally made his way to the North Pole and met Santa! We are so glad to have him back from his world tour.

Today we held our 'Around the World' market showcasing all we have learned and made during topic this term. We hope you enjoyed visiting as much as we did hosting!

We love penguins! We have been learning facts about penguins. Look at our amazing fact files.

We have been practicing counting backwards. Please help us practice this skill at home.

We have enjoyed programming the Bee Bots and using the Bee Bot App on the iPads.

We have been busy making penguin sweet cups for the Christmas fair. We have used different skills to cut out the different parts of the body and have began assembling it. Keep your eyes peeled for the finished product.

We had an amazing school trip to Manchester runway centre. We saw an Emirate A380 aeroplane, a concorde and got to dress up and visit the cock pit of an aeroplane.
