Welcome back. We hope you had a lovely Christmas holiday. Mrs Summers would like to thank all the children and parents for their very generous Christmas gifts.
We will be very busy again this term. Here is a link to our planned learning.
Red - Faith
Yellow – Honesty
Green – Trust
Blue – Courage
What a busy week! Our preparations for Christmas are gathering pace! This week the Y1 children learned about halves and quarters. On Tuesday we folded a circle in half, then into quarters. We folded it again and added glue to make a pyramid. After that we put on a star and decorations. Finally we added glitter. We have made a lovely Christmas forest!
Year 1 boys love making up stories about Traction Man in Independent Learning sessions.
We have been working on our number bonds. Here are links which have helped us.
FANTASTIC FRIDAY SPAGHETTI CONSTRUCTION
Children in Need 2014 - Cedar Class Superheroes!
Thursday 6th November
Another fabulous day in Cedars! Our year 1 children have been writing about Bonfire Night using all the ideas from Tuesday. They did a fantastic job. (Mrs Summers typed up and edited punctuation and spelling)
Bonfire Night Writing using our senses
We have all had a good rest over half term and we've come back full of fabulous ideas! Mrs Summers is really pleased with the ideas we generated for our Bonfire Night writing. Can you spot Mrs Durber's idea?
Please follow the computing link below to see some of our amazing animal pictures using 2 Paint a Picture.
We have drawn maps of the Island of Struay (Katie Morag's Island)
We have changed some of the proper nouns and adjectives to make our own story. Our main character is Kane instead of Katie Morag. The story happens on a snowy Friday instead of a sunny Wednesday and the pig (not sheep) falls into a Stinky Swamp instead of a Boggy Loch.
This week we have used a picture from the Traction Man story to remind us of nouns and to begin to work on adjectives.
The children thought about the common nouns and proper nouns they could see in the picture.
Then they thought about words to describe Traction Man.
After that we all had a go at rummaging in a bowl and describing the contents.
We have also been using a story map to retell 'Katie Morag and the two grandmothers'.
We have started to use post-its to change the nouns in the story to make it our own. Watch this space!
In Science lessons this term we are looking at 'Ourselves' and comparing ourselves to other animals.
An introduction to the skeletons of humans and other animals. Inside the human body are the bones of our skeleton, supporting our body and holding it up. The skeleton provides a protective cage for the delicate organs inside. The ribcage protects the heart and lungs. As we grow, our skeleton grows with us. The human skeleton is made up of more than 200 bones. The clip includes X-ray images of static and moving humans and cheetahs. It also includes images of the skeletons of a bird and a frog.
