Scrumptious sandwiches in Year 1!

Friday 5th July | 4 comments

The children were very excited to receive a letter from Mr Grinling the lighthouse keeper! His wife usually makes his lunch but she was going on holiday so he asked for our help. We had fun designing, making and eating our sandwiches. There were some unusual combinations! We then wrote a set of instructions about how to make our sandwich. The children used some great bossy verbs in their writing.

In maths we have been looking at time. We have been focusing on all the different vocabulary we could use when describing time, including before, after, later, earlier, o’clock and half past.

We looked at an analogue clock (clock face) and talked about the hands of a clock and where they will be at certain times. Then we practised matching, making and reading clocks.

In geography we have had great fun using a compass to find our way round. We worked in pairs to find magnetic north and then talk about what things were in each direction. We stood on top of the hill and looked into the distance.

Experiment of the week in 1G is all about investigating magnetism. We also had fun making ‘Dancing Raisins’. The children enjoyed seeing if other fruit and vegetables could dance too! 1B have been enjoying the Aqua Play set that Theo brought to school.

We all enjoyed the ‘Flavour School’ workshop run by Dr Nick from the University of Leeds. 1G had fun exploring their senses whilst tasting fruit. They closed their eyes and eyes and described what they could hear in their mouth “crunchy” “squelchy” “clack” “clush”. Then they created and performed songs in their hive groups. 1B took part in a Flavour Buffet and tasted a variety of foods.

On Thursday morning the children all went to visit their Year 2 teachers. They all had a great time and are really looking forward to September. 1B will be moving onto Mrs Lace’s class and 1G will be taught by Mrs Loveridge.

We have busy week next week – it is the RNLI visit on Tuesday and Sports Day on Wednesday.

Have a great weekend,

The Year 1 Team

    It took me a few minutes to find out that Mr Grinling was a story character! I kept asking Sam if he was a real person and Sam said yes!
