 Year 1 Blog 

Friday 16th February 2018

This week has been very busy, with lots of extra activities taking place.  

On Tuesday morning we were really pleased to have the Pop Project visit us again. This time the theme was ‘Literature’. They told us about different genres of books such as adventure and fantasy.  They even had a copy of one of our favourite stories – Winnie the Pooh, which we have read in Year 1. It was a great session - we sang, listened to music and had a dance!

This week, M & M Productions also came back to visit school. They performed the story of ‘The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe’.  It was a fantastic performance and Miss Davies was very impressed with what a wonderful audience we were.

Then on Friday morning, it was lovely see the parents who attended our Open Morning.  We hope you enjoyed looking at our books and seeing the progress your child has made through the year so far. I’m sure you will agree that Year 1 have been working very hard!

In Science this week, we were thinking of different questions we could ask and then investigate about ice. Everyone came up with ideas and together we decided to investigate ‘Which material will keep ice cold?’ We worked in small groups to set up the experiment. We had one ice cube by itself, one wrapped in plastic, one wrapped in paper and one wrapped in tin foil.  Every 10 minutes we recorded how much ice had melted and used a thermometer to record the temperature.

Our pupil of the week this week was Peyton.  Peyton is a wonderful role model in our class. She consistently follows the class rules and is a lovely friend to everyone.

We hope you all have a lovely week off and enjoy your rest.

Miss Davies and Mrs Kenyon.
