In DT this week, Year 1 have designed, chopped and made their own fruit kebabs! They were extremely careful when they were cutting and we got to enjoy the finished product in the sun!
This week, we had a visit from some very speical guests which included Winnie, Willow, Wally and Mr Wilson. The children from all year groups were fascinated by these amazing and beautiful creatures. They were able to touch and stroke them, feeling how very soft their feathers were and some children were also even able to have a hold of them.
We had a very exciting Geography lesson in Year 1 today!
All the countries of the UK had been split up!! It was Year 1’s mission to put the UK back together again. There was a few upside down and backwards countries at the beginning of the lesson! We learnt about the 4 countries that make up the UK and found out that we live in one of them! The children then found out that all of these countries have capital cities. We located them on the map. At the end of the lesson everybody could put the United Kingdom back together correctly 🙂 Mission Accomplished!
In computing this week, Year 1 were amazed to see that a water melon could make a funny sound when connected to a device called the MakeyMakey. After this, the children were able to draw animals on a plain piece of paper and using the MakeyMake along an algortihm in the Scratch software make their animals come to life with sound when touched.
