Snow day activities

Good morning,with us having plenty of snow on the way, I would like you to have fun in the snow. You might want to go sledging ( adhering to social distancing rules), build a snowman in your garden, have a snowball fight or make  snow angels. Maybe you could write a set of instructions on how to build a snowman and include the features of a set of instructions. You could draw a winter scene and imagin yourself in the scene. You could write down what you can see, what you can hear, what you can smell and what you can feel and what you might taste.  

I can see fluffy white snow.

I can hear people talking.

I can smell ......................

I can taste ........................

I can feel ..........................

What ever it is you do today, have fun and stay safe.

Miss Walker, Mrs Hand and Mrs Bonsall. 



Last week in English we was working on knowing the features of a set of instructions and then going on to writing a set of instructions. It looks like you all had lots of fun baking your biscuits and most importantly tasting them!

For Maths, we have been learning the months of the year and putting them in order. You all did a fantastic job of making your paper chains with the months of the year.

We have also been working on time and how to measure time in minutes and seconds and how to read and write the time to o'clock. 

Following on with our space topic, we have been making star mobiles which I'm sure you will agree are absolutely fantastic!

This week our children have been super busy writing a story about a boy who wanted to catch a star. They have excelled themselves with their writing skills and it's fantastic to see them have so much pride in their handwriting while home learning. 

In art, we have also been looking at colour lines and texture in cityscapes and have been looking at the work Van Gough. It is clear to see that we definitely have some budding artists in our class.

Wow! We are just blown away with the outstanding work our year 1 children have done and continue to do. This week we have continued to learn about space and understanding how to form a non chronological report. As you can see, our children have added some really interesting facts about space and other planets.

This weeks spellings are: he, she, we, be and was. 

Well what a finish to the term, we have missed our panto and party but we will have something to look forward to when we get back to school as we can watch it then with the goodie bags.

We hope you all have a magical Christmas and New Year and we can't wait to see all of your lovely smiling faces in the New Year. Take care and stay safe everyone.
