English and Science - What is the weather up to today?
In English, we have been looking non chronological reports. We have been writing sentences all about our English weather thinking about what we might need for the weather changes and predicting any weather patterns we might see. We used a thermometer to take the temperature of our classroom and then we went outside to see if the temperature dropped. It definitely did!
In Music, we have thoroughly enjoyed experimenting with different notes (C,D,E,F,G) to create different melodies. After exploring the notes with chime bars, our children got to work in their teams to compose 16 beats of their own. They then added their composition to a backing track for all to hear. Great work, Year 1!
Tuned or Untuned?
We love maths! Some snippets from some of our maths inputs, activities and focus tasks.
We love a good boogie when finding the pulse in our music lessons!
We had a fantastic stroll around our school grounds hunting out all things Autumn, talking about the seasons and changes we might expect to see as we go into winter.
We have been busy filling up our display boards with all our wonderful work!
We have loved our first session of Judo with coach Anthony. We learned some Japanese words and how to hold our partner down. It was so much fun!
The Colour Monster
We have really enjoyed reading our new English text - The Colour Monster. The children have learned all about the different emotions we may feel and represented them in some great artwork! The children have written super sentences about the colour monster too, thinking all about the colours that represent our different emotions
