Happy Easter to 1S and families. We hope you enjoy this break and fingers crossed we have some sunshine to relax in! Well done 1S, you’ve worked really hard this term both online and in school so enjoy the time to rest and relax!
Today we made some chocolate nests with chocolate eggs and enjoyed them together outside.
First we had to crush the shredded wheat
Then we mixed in the melted chocolate.
After that we decorated the nests with mini eggs.
Here are our finished nests.
Finally, we took them outside to enjoy them together.
This week we are learning the story of ‘The Little Red Hen’. In the story she bakes some bread which we will be doing later on in the week.
Today we tried some different breads to see which one we liked the most. Can you remember and tell someone at home all the breads we tried? Which one did you like the most? I think you can guess from the comments below which one was the most popular!
This week we took part in the ‘Egg drop challenge’. Our task was to design and make a container that could protect an egg when dropped.
First we talked about different materials we could use and then created a design. Next we made the container and finally tested it. Have a look at the containers below. Do you predict that they worked?
On Wednesday the 10th of February we joined in with the schools ‘express yourself day’. This meant we had a screen free day and used our time to complete activities that we enjoyed. We found lots of ways to express ourself and you can see some brilliant photos of what we did below!
Have a look for your photo and also look to see what the other children did, it might give you ideas of something you can do another day to express yourself.
Last week was childrens mental health awareness week with the theme ‘express yourself’. One way you can express yourself is through your clothes and what you wear.
Therefore in Year 1 we had a dress to impress day where we wore something that made us feel a certain way or had a special meaning. Everyone took part and looked very impressive. The best part was hearing how each person had a reason for what they had chosen to wear, you can see their outfits below.
