Year 1 History Project

As we continue our history topic ‘Has childhood always been the same?’, we are inviting the children to complete a project at home which have called: ‘When I was 6’. We would like the children to speak to someone at home about what life was like when they were 6. This could be a parent, grandparent, neighbour, anyone from a different generation. The children have been thinking about questions they might ask and on Thursday we will send home a sheet to help them to record answers. The children will have an opportunity to share their findings with their classmates on Thursday 8th July. 

We hope the children will enjoy this project. Any questions just send us an email. Many thanks.

This week’s fun..

Reception have really enjoyed learning about Mary Anning this week. They loved learning all about fossils and how Mary Anning uncovered a giant fossilised marine reptile. The children then went on to listen to stories about dinosaurs and some children really wanted to learn about dinosaurs so we pretended we were paleontologists studying fossils. Well done children, all of you were so enthusiastic!

In Year 1 we have started comparing old and modern toys and artefacts. We enjoyed discussing the question – ‘Did my Grandma have an xbox or a tablet?’ We then went on to compare old and modern toys and discuss the differences.

Pretty Plants

Over the term Miss Riches has been teaching us all about plants and their parts and functions. To end the topic we have got our arty fingers out and created some lovely plant diagrams to display in our classroom. The children were so creative and it was such a proud moment for me to see how much they’ve learned.

Here are some photos for you of our display and the children’s work :)

This will be my last blog post as I sadly finish my final teaching placement here on Friday. I would like to say a big thank you for all your support and I have loved teaching such an amazing group of children!

Beautiful Butterflies

We have been looking after our caterpillars and watched them before the holidays go into their pupa’s. Over the holidays Mrs. Dalton looked after them and they came out of their pupa’s and had turned into beautiful butterflies! Yesterday afternoon we spoke about how butterflies should be free to fly and we released them in our yard. Lots of giggles could be heard and it was such a lovely afternoon!

Here are a few photos to enjoy.
