We had a wonderful story teller and author called Wendy who came and told us the story of Anansi the spider. The children loved being immersed in the story and joining in.
This week in Maths we have been focussing on adding with number bonds and counting on from a given number. The children are becoming familiar with the part, part whole method and are using this when working out their anwers.
This week we visited the Little Angel theatre to watch the puppetry performance of 'There's a rang tan in my bedroom'
Here is a synopsis of what we saw.
Imagine waking up to find a turtle bathing in your bathtub, an orangutan bouncing on your bed and a jaguar creeping through your kitchen! But how did they all get here? And why on earth are they all so far from home?
Join us for a magical mix of puppetry and music as we discover more about our animal friends and what we can do to help – because no one is too small to make a difference.
Inspired by the Greenpeace campaign films There’s a Rang-Tan in My Bedroom and There’s a Monster in My Kitchen written by James Sellick, and featuring a voiceover by Emma Thompson.
In the afternoon back our lessons turned into a Global Citizenship discussion about how we can help save the environment and the animals and reflected on what they had learnt during the performance.
The children created wonderful pictures to get their message across.
Over the next few weeks we will be creating African masks using papier mache and balloons.
This week we focussed on self portraits, we looked in the mirror and used our hands to find the correct positions of features on our face.
Week One and Week Two
We have had a great first two weeks in Year 1!
It has been our Science block and our topic has been 'Animals Including Humans'.
We have been learning about animals, learning how to classify them and creating our own animal information booklets.
Have a look at our brilliant work!
