Year 1 News Summer 1 Week 2

This week the children have thoroughly enjoyed getting into our focus story, Jack and the Beanstalk. We have worked together in our classes to story map our own version and used actions to help us perform it.

During discovery, we have been busy planting our own seed or bean. We made scientific predictions about what they will grow into and used adjectives to describe what they would look like. To link this to our Jack and the Beanstalk theme, we also drew pictures of where our imagination would take us to at the top of the beanstalk. We had some fantastic ideas from candy cane lands, monster zoos and giant unicorns!

In maths we have been using different combinations of coins to make amounts up to 10p and 20p. We had a Garden Centre role play set up where the children were able to practice this skill, buying seeds and plants.

RSPB’s Great British Birdwatch

Today the Eco warriors took part in the RSPB’s Great British Birdwatch. We located ourselves near the allotment beds because we’ve heard lots of chirping there before. We only saw one little sparrow making the noise but we did see a lot of pigeons, one blackbird, 2 crows, 1 magpie, 4 black headed gulls and one red kite.

It’s not too late for you to take part at home too – you have until the 19th February!
