Year 1 had an absolutely fantastic day at Stockley Farm!We did so many fun activities including feeding chickens, a nature walk, feeding kids (baby goats), grooming ponies and stroking polecats and rabbits. We found out lots of information about how to take care of animals and what they eat.
Have a look at the Animoto below with lots of pictures from our trip.
This week we are celebrating Multicultural Arts Week in school. Year 1 have been looking at Aboriginal art and we have been creating some of our own dot paintings on different backgrounds including stones.
Today we had a visitor that came to tell us all about the book that he has written and illustrated with his cousin. The book is called The Boggarts of Boggart Hole Clough. Mr Sullivan brought some of the characters to show us which he had made with clay and decorated himself using paint. We listened to the story and then created our own friendly monster.
Our topic this term is old and new toys and today we had a special visitor who came to tell us all about the toys that she used to play with when she was a child. Mrs Miller brought an old toy car to show us and she even made a cardboard doll house just like the one she used to play with when she was a child. She told us that she used to make her doll houses from old shoe boxes decorated with pictures from catalogs which she glued on using flour and water. She also showed us some of the games she used to play with her friends.
We have been reading and writing about Peter Rabbit. Today we went outside and had to make our own version of Mr McGregor’s garden. We had to think about what we knew about Mr McGregor’s garden from the stories we had read. What would you include in your garden?
Today we have been using 2Simple to create a graph showing our favourite pets. First we made a tally chart to record our results. Then we used 2Simple to make a bar chart. What’s your favourite pet? Which was the most popular pet in our class?
Class 3 watched a silent animation called The Windmill Farmer. The story is about a nurturing farmer in danger of losing his crop of windmills when a terrible storm strikes. Below is a fantastic introduction to the story by Ava.
This week Reception have been looking after some chicks and today they came to visit Class 3. When we were looking at them we noticed that some of the chicks still had their egg tooth. Can you remember why they have an egg tooth and which other chick we have learned about that has an egg tooth?
