Welcome to our Year 1 bubble page
It has been great to have some of the Year 1 children back in KS1.
In our bubble we have been had some fantastic learning with lots of laughs along the way!
We start each day with Wake & Shake this is followed by English, maths, collective worship, phonics and one other curriculum subject. We also focus on well-being and PSHE activities.
We started the day with a discussion on how we felt about coming back into school.
Then we played the game 'Two truths and a lie' so that we could get to know more about each other. None of the children were able to correctly guess which of my (Mrs Bush's) three statements was a lie. They all assumed the statement 'I have a snake in my house.' was a lie. In fact they only believed me once I showed them a video of me with the snake!
During our maths lesson we used this 100 square to play the game Guess my Number.
In DT we looked at pictures of various metal structures including the Eiffel Tower. We then tried to design and build our own structures using only spaghetti and marshmallows.
This was the tallest tower! It was made by Gabriel.
Today we had the excitement of video calls with both Mrs Newell and Mrs Newbold.
In English we read a letter from Mrs Newbold and we decided to write letters to our class. To give us some ideas for the contents of our letters we brainstormed things that had happened during lockdown.
We have had fun today using these maths games during our daily maths lesson.
In RE we started to learn about Sikhism.
In English we started to write our letters to the class. We brainstormed ideas for our opening paragraph. We are planning to finish our letters tomorrow so that we can add them to the school website so that all our friends can read them.
In maths we continued with this week's White Rose activities. Today we compared various 2 digit numbers. We also checked how many numbers bonds for 10 and for 20 we could remember. Apparently the best part of our maths lesson is when they get to use a green pencil to mark their own work!
In geography we looked at a map linked to Fantastic Mr Fox. We used our map reading skills from previous geography lessons to discuss what we could see on the map. We then planned an escape route for Mr Fox. We realised he needed a second bridge over the river to escape from the Farmers. We used the skills we learned on Monday's DT lesson to build a strong bridge from cocktail sticks and marshmallows.
Finn made the longest bridge!
We started the day by celebrating Wyn's birthday with a game of musical statues. It turns out all but one of us has celebrated our birthday during lockdown.
In English we finished our writing our letters. Mrs Bush has put them on the website so our friends can see them. Please look in the letters from section on the Year 1 page.
This week, all the children in my bubble have demonstrated a good understanding of the daily White Rose maths tasks. Today we also focused on recalling doubling and halving facts by playing some of the games on this website.
In geography we recapped the points of the compass and various geographical symbols. Then we created our own treasure maps. We decided that our classroom felt hotter than a desert island!
