Spring 1 week 1 w.b 08.01.24

Happy New Year! It has been lovely seeing all of the children again and hearing all about the amazing things they got up to over Christmas.

The children started the week celebrating The feast Of  The Epiphany. The children learned how the The Epiphany is celebrated on the 6th January and is a special part of Christmas and the story of Jesus’ birth. It marks the day when the Three Kings followed a star to visit the son of God and the first time that Jesus was revealed to the World. Year One wore their special crowns to assembly and took part in a special circle time where we discussed what gifts we could bring this year to our school, family and friends. We had some lovely suggestions such as the gifts of kindness, friendship and charity as well as looking out for people who may need our help. The children wrote down their gifts they would like to offer and shared their offerings with the class.

In Maths this week the children have been identifying the whole amount and the parts. They have used their knowledge of the part whole model to explore different quantities and also how it might be adapted depending on the question that is being asked.

In their Seasonal Learning this week the children have been thinking about Spring being the next season to come. There were some great discussions about what reminds them of Spring and all the lovely things they have to look forward to. A particular favourite was Easter! The children shared their ideas with some keywords and then went off to complete some independent writing in their books.

In Art the children explored what watercolour can do. They used both primary colours and secondary colours in their exploration, experimenting with accidental and purposeful colour mixing. The experimented using techniques such as wash, wet on dry, wet on wet, and mark making. The also looked at an Artist called Emma Burleigh as inspiration.
