Today we enjoyed a visit from Father Christmas.
Year 1 held their own election. We learned about 4 parties and their manifestos. We chose one main point from each and discussed as a class.
We chose children to represent each party then had a secret ballot.
The results of Year 1's election were:
Red party - 10
Yellow party - 4
Blue party - 2
Green party - 5
Take a look at the slideshow of photos from our election.
Term 2 Week 4
Each class were given £20 and need to make as much money as they can by making and selling something.
We have been working hard to make scented playdough and popcorn to sell at the summer fare.
This week we have been learning all about capacity and have had great fun exploring different size containers in the water.
Year 1 Mass
We were lucky enough to be invited to a mass at Ss Henry and Elizabeth Catholic Church. We enjoyed having time to look around the church and admire all the beautiful religious artefacts.
Science - minibeasts
To start off our minibeast topic we went out to explore the garden and used magnifying glasses to spot as many minibeasts as we could.
To finish off our topic on plants we looked closely at the different trees on our school field. We recorded there name, height, age, colour and collected some leaves from the trees. We had great fun doing tree rubbings and creating posters to show all of our findings. What do you think of our posters....
This week we have been learning all about measuring and comparing lengths.
Science - Parts of a plant
Today we explored the garden, we carefully dug up plants to look at the roots. The plants were brought back to class and put in pots of water, we observed the roots closely and drew them.
Making bead strings
We made our own bead strings to help us with our addition and subtraction.
