Toy day: we had a wonderful time talking about toys, comparing old and new teddies, making a marble run, doing drama, filling a fantasy toy box and even cooking for our toy picnic. Here are some photos.
5th November: today we learnt about Guy Fawkes’ plot to blow up the Houses of Parliament, we made firework shape poems and firework pictures.
Toys from the past day: we had a fantastic time learning about old toys and games. We played hop scotch, table quoits,marbles, bingo, dominoes, with a spinning top, with Russian dolls, and with a music box.
Library Visit: Year 1 walked to Plymouth Central Library where we listened to stories, looked at books and were issued with our own library cards.
Autumn Week: We’ve had a fantastic week finding out about autumn. We’ve been autumn detectives, made autumn art work, taken part in talk activities about autumn, composed autumn themed poems and even made up a leaf dance!
What a handsome lot we are-look at our self portraits!
Week 3: Another busy week! We’ve been trying to use the conjunction ‘and’ to use 2 adjectives to describe toys; we’ve been using ‘greater/less than’ in maths; we’ve painted beautiful self portraits; had a visit from Fenella the tooth fairy who taught us about looking after our teeth; we’ve practised cutting with scissors AND brought our toys to school for the day-we even danced with them!
Week 2 of year 1 has been so busy! We’ve ordered numbers, described toys using adjectives and played cooperatively and kindly.
What a busy first week it’s been! We’ve sorted and counted objects, labelled toys, read postcards sent by Matilda bear, enjoyed stories and learnt lots through our play.
Wednesday 5th September
The children have begun to settle well into year 1. They have told me all about themselves and enjoyed exploring their new environment.
