Year 1

Open The Book

Open The Book

Today the  ladies from  Open the Book  joined us to  share the story of when Jesus was lost in the temple.  Mary  and  Joseph were so  worried and couldn’t  find  Him anywhere.  They returned  to  the  temple and found Him sitting with the elders.    Jesus said, “Why were you worried, I am here at my Father’s house.”  The children enjoyed listening to and joining in with the story.

The teacher robot in Year 1

During computing today, Year 1 were given the task of writing an algorithm that would program the teacher robot to make a jam sandwich. In their groups, the children needed to think carefully about the the types of instructions they would need to include in their algorithm. They also needed to think about making their instructions clear and precise. Mr Patterson then took on the role of the teacher robot and followed some of the algorithms very literally. At this point, things got quite messy and the children found it very funny indeed. This was due to the fact that slices of bread ended up on the floor and Mr Patterson’s hands got covered in butter and jam. After this, the children looked back at their algorithms and debugged their program. This meant they were able to add in the missing functions to create the perfect jam sandwich. Well done Year 1!

Collective Worship- Being Thankful

In Year 1, we held a collective worship on how thankful we are to all the special people that help us. In RE we are learning all about special people in the community and at church. The children all prepared one thing they wanted to say they are thankful for. Some children prepared prayers to read.

Year 1- Telling the time

In Year 1 we have been learning to tell the time to the hour and half past the hour. We talked about the clock face being a special kind of number line, as when we put the numbers horizontally in a line from 1 to 12, equally spaced, with a gap in between each one it becomes a number line. In this lesson, the children were giving their talk partner a time to show on their clocks. They then asked them to move the clock hands one hour later or one hour before.
