We looked around the school to find different objects to blow bubbles through to find out which would make the best bubbles.
In cooking wee we made playdough. We mixed together Flour, water, sunflower oil and yellow food colouring with our hands until it turned into playdough.
Then we made food using our playdough.
We also planned our fruit skewers, cut the fruit, put it on the skewers and ate the fruits! After we evaluated our fruit skewers.
Our first task this week is to create a sunflower (inspired by Vincint Van Gogh).
This week our theme is sports and we have watched videos about sports day, planned our own sports days, practised sports day and had our own sports day in our bubbles.
This year, year 1 did sports day on their own whilst social distancing and staying in their bubbles. Such a strange time! We did running races including everyone and then a boys and girls running race and the winners for these races (in their bubble) was Joshua, Izzy, Phil, Abdul, Ellie. Next, we did a jumping race and Abdul, Joshua and Izzy were the winners in their bubbles. After, we did a side-stepping race and Abdul and Levi took gold! The hopping race was next and Alfie, Izzy and Abdul crossed the finish line first in their bubbles. Following this, a very careful slow walking backwards race which Lexi-May won by a massive distance! The next race (my personal favourite) was the frog jumping race and Phil and Lexi-May bounced into first! Although, I am going to give a special shout out to Alfie on this one as him frog jumping skills are amazing. Then we moved onto the high knees race and Eira and Phil got to gold! Next was hopscotch and the winners were Lexi-May and Phil. And... finally we had our long distance running winners... (Find picture below)
Our three sports day winner from each bubble are... Abdul, Izzy and Joshua!
Well done guys and well done to everyone in year one that took part! :)
After sports day, we wrote a recount of what happened and draw pictures...
Here is some of our English this week...
In maths this week we have been working on place value to 100...
We have been counting forwards and backwards...
We have been representing numbers through drawing...
We have also practised writing and saying numbers correctly, making sure the tens go into the tens column and the ones go into the ones column and explaining what we know using our mathematical language. Some of us also moved onto the hundreds column and thousands column.
Thinking about racing and speed... We wanted to find out what makes our cars go fastest!
We decided we were going to build different height ramps. First we predicted which ramp we thought would make the car go fastest, then we tested our idea, and then we wrote about our findings.
This week our theme is animals and we have listened to stories and watched videos about different animals, written about animals and found our own resources to create our own habitats.
Position and direction
In maths this week we sung and danced to songs, played Simon says and drew and coloured in to help us learn positional and directional language.
Our key vocabulary this week was: left, right, middle, up, down, forwards, backwards, full turn, half turn, quarter turn and three quarter turn.
