Little Red Riding Hood

During the first week back after half term we have been looking at Little Red Riding Hood. We spent some time familiarizing ourselves with the plot of the story and what happens at the beginning, in the middle and at the end. We then split into pairs and acted it out in front of a green screen! It was so much fun to see the video at the end with the change to the background and we really enjoyed making this video, we hope to make some more soon.

Fruit Kebabs

 We have been making fruit kebabs in year 1 this half term. We spent some time trying different flavours, thinking about colours and planning a repeating pattern to give our kebabs an eye-catching look. We had so much fun trying Mango, Pineapple, Raspberries and Watermelon. We hope you enjoy the pictures below. 

Penguins

Here are our penguins.  We have made them from clay, let them dry and then painted them. While we were at Blackpool Zoo we saw lots of penguins we hope these look like them.

Blackpool Zoo

On Wednesday 26th September we visited Blackpool Zoo.  We went on a coach that took us straight to the zoo.  First we visited the monkey house, then the kangeroo's.  We walked through the lemurs and onto the camels.  While we ate our packed lunch we watched the sea lion show that was great fun.  There are dinosaurs at Blackpool Zoo which were large and scary.  Finally we visited the elephants with a quick look at the baby zebra.  We were very tired when we got back to school but we had a fantastic time.

Fairy Glen

We have been on our first visit to The Fairy Glen.  Here we looked for signs of autumn, climbed hills and ran down the other side.  Best of all we paddled in the stream.  We  said a short prayer to thank God for all his creation.  

Outdoor Kids

Outdoor Kids takes place every Friday morning.  We have lots of fun in the woods.  Here are some pictures of Year One having a great time.  Year One can't wait to go exploring every week.

Measuring

We have been measuring.  First we chose an object then we placed it on the scales and then used cubes to find out what its mass was.
