Welcome to Y1C!
We looked at 'Sunflowers' By Van Gogh and created some of our own beautiful flowers using pastels.
We used mirrors to help us think about our facial features and carefully used pencil to create our self portraits.
Only One You
The children have loved reading 'Only One You' by Linda Kranz together as a class. It is a beautiful book with a very important message- there is only one you in the world, try and make it a better place! The story also celebrates diversity and promotes self esteem. We made wonderful paper plate fish just like the ones in the book. Each fish was amazing and unique, just like us.
We created simple ariel view maps of our classroom and our route to school.
PE - Hula Hooping
Fun in the Sun
We made the most of a sunny October day by taking our PE lesson with Mrs B outside. Look at the fun we had!
Buzz and Woody
Buzz and Woody are our Year 1 Guinea Pigs. We love to help to look after them and give them cuddles!
Today we dressed up in our spookiest costumes and enjoyed a fantastic Halloween party! We played party games and danced with our friends.
We celebrated Bonfire night by creating beautiful firework pictures using chalk.
This half term we are very lucky because Jonathon the tennis coach is going to teach us how to play tennis.
Our Trip to Gibside
We had a wonderful festive time on our trip to Gibside. We embarked on a magical Christmas trail, with a different activity at each stop.
Maths - Place Value
We have been exploring Place Palue using Base 10 equipment and Numicon.
Merry Christmas from Y1C!
