We have been artists!

This afternoon Year 1 have been creative artists! We looked at some interesting and beautiful shells and decided to draw them. We looked at them really carefully to make sure we were drawing what we could see, not what we thought we could see. What do you think of our art work? (We think it should be in a gallery!)

YEAR 1 ARE RESEARCHERS!

As part of our new topic, ‘By the Sea’, we wanted to research sea creatures.

We each decided which sea creature we wanted to learn about.

We read lots of information about our sea creature and wrote questions to find out more.

Then we went on the computers to research our questions.

On Friday we are going to write sentences using the facts which we have found out!

Year 1 Birch Assembly and Parent’s Visit!

Year 1 Birch have loved learning about space and have become real experts. They shared their learning with the whole school in an assembly and last Friday performed for their parents and carers who were then invited back to class to share their learning. A big, “Thank you!” to everyone who came, you made the children’s day!

On Tuesday 9th May we designed and created our very own rockets. We used bottles, foil, celophane and other reusable items. We evaluated them and answered what we thought went really well and what we would do differently next time. We think they are space-tastic! What do you think?
