Strawberry Picking 🍓

On Tuesday Year 1 had a wonderful day visiting Stonepitts farm in Sevenoaks.

When they arrived at the farm they had a talk from Farmer Jackie, telling them how strawberries are grown and tips and tricks for picking them.

They were very lucky with the weather and had an amazing day, picking and eating delicious strawberries 🍓

They then had a lovely picnic lunch and took advantage of the big fields to play in. Use the pictures below to tell someone at home about your day.

Thank you to all of the adults that were able to come and support on the trip!

We have taken part in lots of exciting things this week including strawberry picking at Stonepitts farm and Holbeach cultural week.

For your home learning this week, find out some facts about strawberries. How you record them is up to you. You could make an information poster, draw Stonepitts farm or write a list of facts that you find interesting.

You could also look for a recipe with strawberries in and have a go at following the recipe! Below are a couple of examples:

You may choose to carry on learning about different cultures at home. This week we have used our passport and visited these countries to learn about them:

China

Poland

Nigeria

Brazil

You may want to find out more information about one of these countries or research a country of your choice. This could include finding music from a different country, listening to stories or finding out the Geography of another country. Perhaps you have family, friends or neighbours who you could ask about their culture?

We would love to hear what you find out next week!

This week we have been learning to add coins together to find the total amount. We have been learning about money so that we can run our plant stall at the Summer Fair on the 2nd of July.

Play the games below to practise your money skills.

You could set up a shop at home with someone. Set prices for items and practise selecting which coins you would use to buy them. What coins would you use to buy 2 items? Do you need to give any change?

This week we are learning about Islam in R.E. We will be learning about important values to Muslims as well as some religious stories.

Ask someone at home if there is a story that has important values to them. This could be a religious story or one with a meaningful message.

After you have listened to the story, draw a picture or story map to help you remember the important parts. You could write the story if you wanted to.

We would love to hear your stories next week so please bring them in to share with us.

Giving Directions

Today we went outside and became bee-bot robots! We are learning how to follow and give instructions. Working with our partner, we took it in turns to be the robot.

Our partner had to give us instructions and then we followed them. We practised the instructions forward, backward, turn left and turn right. We had to make sure we gave a number at the end of our instuctions e.g forward 3, turn left, forward 1, backwards 2.

Can you turn someone at home into a bee bot? See if they can follow your instructions. Perhaps they could give you some instructions?

1S Class Assembly

Last half-term 1S performed their class assembly and did a brilliant job! Unfortunately, there were quite a few children who were unable to attend our class assembly (but who had been working hard to learn songs, lines and how to play an instrument).

As everyone had worked so hard, we thought we would record our speaking parts and songs so that you can enjoy all of their hard work at home!

We hope you enjoy this wonderful showcase of all of the children’s hard work and love for their learning and topic.
