A busy week in Year 1 again! To begin Spirituality Week, we had an assembly on Monday. Then we made butterflies with a prayer for our prayer partners in Year 5 and were delighted when we got to play with them. Next we made postcards to pray for people in our community and they were given to Father Shaun. On Thursday, we spent time at different prayer stations, led by Year 6.
In English, the children were excited about our story bags to support them when writing a story. They used a variety of adjectives and different sentence starters to make their stories exciting.
On Wednesday, we were excited when Mrs Lennox bought a package to the class. When we opened it, they were shocked and excited to find two eggs. The children thought of different questions they would like to ask and then they predicted what they thought they were. All the children suggested researching on the Internet or in non-fiction books to check if their predictions were correct.
In PE, we have continued to play cricket, the children have become more confident with the rules and their teamwork is amazing.
In Geography, we are learning about the seaside so the children painted pictures for a beautiful display in our classroom.
Your child has made a prediction about what the egg is. Look online or in books to see if the animal they predicted comes from an egg and print or draw a picture of the egg of their chosen animal.
We are completing 30 days of wildness so we can appreciate the nature around us. Each day in June the children will complete a different activity. Please try to do the first six activities in the half term and bring a photo of one of the activities to school.
1st June – Feel the wild between your toes – squelch your toes in sand, grass or mud.
2nd June – Look up at the clouds – What shapes can you see?
3rd June – Find a creepy crawly, be gentle and observe the way it moves.
4th June – Thread a daisy chain
5th June – Make a nature table, collect wild treasures like feathers, fossils or bones.
6th June – Have lunch in the wild.
Have a wonderful half term, enjoy the sunshine!
