Welcome to Year One

Lost and Found

29/10/19

 

A suitcase mysteriously appeared in Year 1 today. The children discussed who it might belong to and opened it to look at the contents. They found, lots of warm clothing, some food, a bottle of water, a torch and a map. They discussed what each item might be used for. Alex thought the suitcase belonged to the boy in the story from ‘Lost and Found’ by Oliver Jeffers.

In maths we are sorting/grouping different things. Some children grouped by colour, others grouped by shapes. 

 

Bank Field

10/09/19

We went to Bankfield Residential Care Home. We asked the residents about what life was like many years ago. We talked about how

technology had changed. We found out they didn’t have mobile phones a long time ago. They had dial telephones.

We found out Layla had been evacuated to a different part of the country during the war and that they had rations during the war.

We also sang lots of songs for the residents at the home.

 

Art Week

03/09/19 – 06/09/19

Year one have been looking at Op Art and Bridget Riley. 

Op art, short for optical art, is a style of visual art that uses optical illusions. Typically, they give the viewer the impression

of movement, hidden images, flashing and vibrating patterns, or of swelling or warping.

First we practiced our colouring in skills and then we moved onto techniques and the use of different equipment.

Next we created our own art inspired by Bridget Riley.
