We have been learning about 3D shapes.
Cube, cone, cylinder and sphere! Do you know any other 3D shapes? How many faces do they each have? What about vertices? Do they have flat faces or curved faces or both?
Over the half term can you go on a 3D shape hunt? You could take photos of what you find or record your work by writing a list.
A bin is a cylinder.
A football is a sphere.
Here are some songs we have enjoyed too.
Enjoying hunting for 3D shapes! You could share your work with the class after half term!
Have a wonderful holiday and see all soon!
Farmer Ben asked us to design and make a container to carry the chick eggs safely from the farm to us.
We had great fun planning, making and best of all
testing our containers!
Some worked and some went
These containers did not work…
Why do you think these did not work?
These did work…
Why do you think these worked?
Sam kept a record of our predictions and results. Thanks Sam.
Don’t forget that tomorrow 1L are taking part in the Egg Drop challenge!
If you have any materials at home that you plan to use, bring them in tomorrow!
We have been learning about the life cycle of a frog!
Tell someone at home all about it.
What other life cycles do you know about? Maybe you could find out about a different life cycle and tell us in class!
In Art, we have been experimenting with clay.
What could you do with the clay?
Push, roll, flatten, twist, pinch…
Can you think of any other actions?
Today, we visited the school library. We will now be visiting every Wednesday. We enjoyed reading lots of different kinds of books.
This is what some of us thought about our time in the library today…
“It was very relaxing” Julie-Grace
“It was very peaceful” Sam
“I liked the Where’s Wally books” Lorenzo
“I read our Penguin book in the library” Mason
This week everyone made their own clock. Can you practise making different times on your clock?
What time do you get up?
Brush your teeth?
What other times can you make?
Can you remember what tactics we used to get the beanbag past our friend?
On Friday, 28 year 1 parents attended a Reading Workshop, where we talked about ways to help children develop as readers. The parents (and younger siblings) then had the opportunity to visit their child’s class and enjoy reading books together.
