This week we have been consolidating our learning surrounding measures. We recapped the key vocabulary for capacity, length and weight and completed a variety of activities. We have moved on from non-standard units to using standard units including cm, m, g, kj, l and ml.
This week in Literacy we have been writing our own pirate information books. We enjoyed making our books and filling them with lots of facts. We wrote our own glossary, we used the dictionary to find what the words mean (definition). We then wrote our own contents page to help people find the correct page in the book to look for the facts.
This afternoon, after a busy week we had some fun creating our own pirate sculptures. We found out some interesting facts before making our own sculptures out of tin foil. We made pirates, parrots, ships and weapons. It was a really tricky skill but we all tried our best and our extra helpers in class were used very well.
What a fantastic sports day we all enjoyed on Thursday. We all liked the competitive element of our sports day and all tried our best. It was lovely to see all the children supporting their class mates and having lots of fun. There was a sprint race, standing long jump, javelin, a bean bag throw, an obstacle race and finally a long distance race. Our favourite event was the long distance race, even Mrs Jones joined in. The children were so happy to be placed with first, second or third in each event and enjoyed taking their slips to the gazebo for scoring.
Anastasya had the best moto for the day: ‘It doesn’t matter if you win or lose it is about trying your best.’
Year 1 Puffins class performed a wonderful pirate assembly this morning in front of parents and the whole school.
