Please feel free to enjoy the games on Phonics Play. They have some great activities for the children which will develop their phonics confidence and knowledge.
No Pens Wednesday
All of our school took part in No Pens Wednesday whereby we were unable to use pens for a whole day. This was a great opportunity for us to be creative, develop our speaking and listening skills and to collaborate with our friends.
We built houses for the 3 little pigs, and tried to blow them down. This required team work and lots of discussion, to plan how we could make our houses as strong as they could possibly be.
We have been learning all about The Great Fire of London throughout our History topic. We had a visit from Firefighter Bruce who works at Doncaster Fire Station. He came in to talk to us about how he helps people in our community, and what his fire kit was used for. We asked lots of questions and loved finding out what happens during fires, and how hard firefighters work to save the lives of many people.
During Diversity Week, we explored the country of Poland. We looked at the different foods that are popular in Poland (some of us thought they were yummy, others not). We explored the alphabet in Polish, and some of our children taught us some simple Polish words. We read books in dual languages, and tried to pick out commonly used words. We explored the capital city of Poland, and the Polish flag, making comparisons to England. It was a great week!
Our Spring Term topic is all about 'belonging'. We have explored the difference between a house and a home. We had great fun sorting pictures into what makes a 'house' or a 'home'. This was a great oracy activity, and required lots of speaking, listening and collaboration.
Year 1's maths learning...
In maths we have been exploring numbers using numicon. We have been counting groups of objects, and exploring one more and one less.
We have been learning all about 'family'. We have explored the different ways that our families can show love and care for one another. We made our family into stick puppets, and acted out using them.
