Amazing art, fantasy settings and maths fun in Year 1!
Thursday 30th January | 7 comments
We have enjoyed reading the story Katie and the Dinosaurs. Katie goes through a door which has a sign on it saying: ” Absolutely No Admittance Whatsoever”.
This story inspired us to use our imagination and create our own fantasy settings behind a door – we had alien moons, unicorn world, sweetie lands and lots more exciting places! The children drew and labelled their setting using some great ‘right choice’ words. Then they wrote about their lands using adjectives and conjunctions.
In phonics we have focused on a-e/ay/ai, or/aw/au and oa/o-e/oe.
We have been comparing numbers using the greater than and less than sign. All the children have worked hard to solve problems in their books too!
1P had fun learning about algorithms….we really enjoyed making delicious toast!
1P enjoyed their trip to Cartwright Hall. They learnt lots of new art skills. Thank you to all the parents who came with us.
We have read the lovely book The Dot by Peter Reynolds. It inspired us to create our own dotty artwork. The children had fun using different media to make their own pieces of art.
We have also been looking at the work of the artist Pacita Abad. Her beautiful pieces of art have inspired us all and the children are busy creating and painting their own canvases. All our amazing art work will be on display on Thursday 13th February in our art gallery.
Have a great weekend.
