The potatoes have now been harvested! Children helped to dig them up and tasted them once they had been washed and cooked. Even though some of them were quite small, they tasted delicious!

What can we learn from toys? The children decided that the toys in both pictures were dice. They deduced that the dice on the left were older because they were not as perfect in shape and more unlike the dice that we use in school. They knew that older meant they were made longer ago.

Maths investigations in Year 1.

To start our new topic of TOYS, we brought in our favourite toys to examine and write about.

Using the new notebook computers to help learning in year 1.

Year 1 had a fantastic time at Conkers. They listened to "The Secret Path" and then found their way through a real maze. They listened to "The Gruffalo" on the Gruffalo trail. Then they went on the sensory walk to see what they could see, feel, hear or touch. After lunch they got to play in the adventure playground. They even got to ride on a train!

Children have been learning the names of some of the plants they might see on their trip to Conkers. First they looked for any they might find in the school garden.

To celebrate the end of their Explorers topic, the children made bread and soup and cooked them over a fire. They also baked potatoes in the fire, made shelters and learned how to put up a tent.

Look at our potato plants now!

In their Funky Friday time, children are keen to see how tall and how long they can build something.

As we approach the end of our Explorers topic, children have been sharing what they have learned with one another.

We are still slowly adding more soil. Some of the sacks are full but they will still need watering and looking after.

Look how much our potatoes have grown already! Now we have to add more soil gradually until the growing sacks are full.

Year 1 had fun wearing the capes they made during our Superheroes topic.

Year 1 investigated ways of joining two pieces of fabric. They were looking for something that would make a strong join to make their superhero capes.

Children in Year 1 have been learning about the parts of a church in their RE lessons. They went on a visit to All Saints and Holy Trinity Church in Loughborough to see what they recognised and to ask questions about things they had not seen before. The children spotted, the pulpit, the font, the pews, the lectern and the stained glass windows. They wanted to know why not all the windows had stained glass, why there was a teddy in church and why was it so quiet.

Year 1's Visit to the Church

The fire service came to school to teach year 1 how to stay safe.

During International week we did lots of different activities to help us learn about the Netherlands and the UK. In art we painted still life pictures in the style of Vermeer, a Dutch artist, we did map work in Geography and tried to understand the shape of the UK by making it in playdough. We also made a Dutch apple cake and tasted different Dutch cheeses and rye bread.
