This week in Maths we have been learning about capacity. We have been comparing different containers and predicting which one holds more and which one holds less. We then used a measuring jug and read the scale to see exact measurements.
Play the game below to practise reading the scale:
Capacity Countdown – mobile friendly (ictgames.com)
Have a look in your house for containers (they can be full or empty) with different measurements on them. Can you find any with ml and any with l? What does the ml and l mean?
Try putting them in order from the least to most capacity.
In Year 1 we have been thinking about our new topic ‘Paws, Claws and Roars’.
This week we read the story ‘Dinosaur Roar’. Tell an adult at home what you liked about this story. You can use the link below to watch the story again.
In this book you will find lots of opposites and rhymes. For your home learning this week think of as many opposites/rhymes that you can.
You can record them by drawing a picture, writing a sentence or sharing them with someone at home.
Also have a go at logging into my maths and numbots.
Today, we made posters, drew chinese dragons and celebrated everyone’s culture in our parade! What a busy and colourful day!
I hope you enjoy these photos and videos!
This afternoon we made flags from all over the world! We made flags from countries that are special to us.
Don’t forget to come to school on Friday in clothes that represent your culture OR clothes that are the colours of the Chinese flag (red or yellow). We are looking forward to our parade in the playground!
This week, as part of Cultural Week, we are learning about China!
This morning, we took part in a ribbon dance workshop. We made lots of different shapes during the dance and even became different animals!
This afternoon, we got to try some traditional Chinese food. We tried mushroom dumplings, bean buns, cookies and crackers. Which foods did you like? How did they taste?
We are looking forward to learning more about Chinese culture tomorrow!
We have been thinking about healthy eating. Today, we designed and MADE our own fruit kebabs!
Here are some of our great designs.
We chopped, peeled and sliced the fruits.
Then we threaded our fruits onto our skewers.
Finally we ate and enjoyed them! Yummy! What a treat!
Well done KS1! You all did your BEST and you should all be very proud of yourselves!
Enjoy looking at these photos. You might like to leave me a message to tell me about your favourite activity.
Today, we wrote all about our day at the strawberry farm. We hope you enjoy our recounts. Well done everyone!
