Year 1 Question of Faith Day

On Tuesday we were lucky enough to have our ‘Question of Faith Day’ to help us learn all about angels in our R.E topic. We had so much fun learning about the job of angels in the Christmas story. We even got to dress up in costumes and act out the story of Christmas! We played a game where we had to put the Christmas cards together in teams and also collaged some pictures from the nativity story using different pieces of paper and glue. We are definitely experts on angels in Year 1!!

Year 1 -DT- Wheels and Axles - CREATE!!!

Post 2 of 2: After lots of designing and testing we were ready to start creating! We were thrilled with how our vehicles turned out! Next, we'll be evaluating the process and thinking of how we might improve things for next time. Such as, for example, using duct tape instead of masking tape.

DT- Year 1- Wheels and Axles- DESIGN and TEST

Post 1 of 2: Design Stage- This past half-term we have been working on ‘Wheels and Axles’ for our DT topic. We started by learning about what types of vehicles/objects have wheels and what makes them work best. We then learned about ‘axles’, ‘axles holders’ and the ‘chassis’. We experimented with card, straws and masking tape to create our first model. We learned some ‘top tips’ from this process which we applied to the creation of our final product vehicles (following post). We drew and labelled our designs and brought boxes/tubes in from home ready to create!

Year 1 Toy Dress-Up Day

Today the children were invited to dress-up as a toy to celebrate our topic. We had a fashion show and all had a go at 'striking a pose' for the camera! We then explored some new and old toys, comparing the materials they are made from and how they work. We created a simple table to then draw and sort the toys into 'new' and 'old'. Next week we will be learning about the phone, who invented it and then comparing a simple timeline of how phones have evolved to what we have today.

Fiery Silhouettes in Year 2

Year 2 focused on their painting skills this week. We thought about how to comfortably hold our paintbrush, loading the brush with the right amount of paint and painting long flowing strokes across the page. By doing all of this the children created a fiery background which they then added a silhouette of buildings to represent the Great Fire of London.
