Year 1

Spring One 2017

 

Where did the tracks go?

In order to answer our big question we...

  • Explored the area in which we live, and took photos of what we saw
  • Created our own map and highlighted the local features
  • looked at different forms of transport to help us discover what was popular in our local area by using a tally chart to create a pictogram of our findings
  • located Sutton-in-Ashfield on a map
  • discovered where we have travelled in the UK and which form of transport we have used to get there
  • Identified vehicles from the past and present and ordered them from old to new
  • Used charcoal to create pictures of vehicles from the past
  • Designed and made a vehicle that moves

As part of our RE curriculum we visited St Mary Magdalen's church to find out more about churches and to experience a church first hand.

We also visited Brakenhurst Environmental Education Centre to learn more about the Chinese New Year. It was great fun!

Spring Two 2017

What has changed since my Great Great Grandparents were young?

In order to answer our big question we...

  • had a visit from Helen Crowfoot who brought in a Victorian kitchen for us to use, Victorian clothes for us to wear and Victorian artefacts for us to investigate and draw
  • We identified old and modern items and were able to place them in an old or modern home
  • We compared the lives of rich and poor children in Victorian times and also compared the life of a Victorian chimney sweep to ourselves
  • We researched what school life was like in Victorian times
  • We took part in a Victorian school afternoon and had to stand up each time Mrs Riley or Mrs Stamp came into the classroom!
  • We explored the differences in food and money
  • We used our investigation skills to discover the differences between technology now and then

Autumn Term 2017

We have had a busy term in Year 1. As part of our Learning Challenge Curriculum and the big question "Why aren't humans like tigers?" we went on a bug hunt in our school garden and explored the weather in Science. To help answer our Learning Challenge big question 'Why can't meerkats live in the North Pole?' Year One visited White Post Farm and saw sheep, mountain-goats, pigs, lizards, geese, lamas, ducks and also met Hero the bull. They went on a tractor ride and learnt about meerkats! We got 'spotty' for 'Children in need' day and celebrated Christmas.

We also celebrated National Poetry day 2017 by reading poetry books, writing rhyming strings and writing our own poems. smiley
