Labeling our toys

During Computing, Year 1 Puffins have today been labeling their toys using Purple Mash. They took photographs of their toys and today started to think about adjectives to describe their toys.

The children used the labeling 2DiY program to label their toys using words like fluffy, soft, hard, cute, nose, eyes, ears etc.

Mr Baddhan was impressed with all the children who completed today’s lesson really well.

Easter story

Today we had a special visitor from Kings Norton church. Pauline came to talk to us about Easter and tell us the Easter story. We learnt lots of new things that we didn’t already know about the story. She was very interesting to listen to and very good at telling stories!

Our teachers were very proud of how well we sat and listened. We also asked lots of sensible questions.

Understanding worry

This afternoon the Puffins have been focusing on recognising and understanding worry. First we discussed what worry meaning and the type of feelings you may have when you worry.

‘You can be very scared’ Millie
‘It can be frightening to do something’ Ryan

We then read the story of Silly Billy by Anthony Browne and then we created our own worry dolls to tell our worries to and stick under our pillow. Finally we watched the story of ‘A Big Bag of Worries’ and decided we should create an official place in our classroom to stick all of our worries so our teacher can help us if she can.

Writing directional instructions

During today’s Computing lesson with Mr Baddhan, Year 1 learned more about algorithms. They used a program called Lily Hop to write down instructions.

Yesterday Puffins learned that algorithms are a clear set of instructions to achieve an outcome.

The children were asked to write down instructions to direct the frog to the stone using directional commands. They then tested their instructions to see if they were correct.
