Our Learning Journey
Come and see all of the fantastic things that we have been learning........
We had a visitor this week! Finley's 7 week old puppy Lokie. He is a springer beagle cross and is absolutely gorgeous!
Our final week of forest schools before the summer holidays! What a fabulous journey we have been on. The children have really grown in confidence and independence. The children had the freedom to choose what they wanted to do today. We of course returned to some mud play and tree climbing, but also had lots of problem solving opportunities, role play and the chance to build a den. What a fantastic afternoon!
Forest schools week 5.......the children have gone feral. Our starting point this week was 'we're going on a bear hunt' and the children were challenged to look for what animals might live in our forest school. However, they were far more interested in climbing trees and playing with mud! Sincerest apologies, forest schools is a child led approach!
In ICT we have been learning to program a bee-bot.
A Model A Ford comes to visit. It is 87 years old.
Making our vehicles!
Magical Maths. We have been learning how to count on and back using a number line.
Last day of Autumn term!
Marvelous measuring! We have been doing lots of measuring in Year 1 this week. Come and take a look......
As adults (most of us!) are used to having to discuss, share, co-operate and work as part of a team in various parts of our everyday lives. In Year 1, these are skills that we have to work hard at to develop. Mrs. Holmes set a very tricky challenge this week. The children were 'chained together' in pairs using paper chains. The challenge......get to the end of the lesson without breaking your chain!
This activity was taken from the brilliant 'Secret Lives of Four Year Olds'. Catch 'The Secret Lives of 4, 5 and 6 Year Olds' on Tuesdays at 8pm on channel four. Alternatively, catch up on episodes at 4OD (on demand).
We have been learning all about 2d shape with Mrs. Ellis. The children did a fantastic job of making 2d shapes with their bodies. What shapes can you see?
Hello from forest schools! Last week I was busy starting my forest school training, Although I missed seeing all of the children, I can't wait to start teaching the children all the fabulous new things I have learnt!
