Welcome to 1CW!
We are a Year 1 class and we have three members of staff: Mrs Walker and Mrs Cross are the class teachers and Mrs Laight is the learning support assistant.
We hope you enjoy looking at what we have been learning about in class and out and about. We always have lots of fun!
In Science, we have been learning about predicting and investigating. Mrs Cross taught us about the special curved shape of an egg which makes it very strong. We predicted whether we thought we could walk on eggs and then we tested it out!
We were very shocked when we were able to walk on them without them breaking! We too have super powers!
As part of our topic we invited some real life Superheroes in to help us learn about their jobs and how they help people. We had lots of fun finding out what makes them superheroes.
We were taught how to look after our teeth. The Dentist showed us how to brush our teeth and talked to us about which food and drink were good to keep our teeth healthy.
Mr Jackman came to visit us. He told us about how a Paramedic helps people and showed us some of the equipment he uses. As you can see from our faces, it is very heavy!
We were also lucky to be able to go inside his ambulance!
We have also learnt that animals can be super heroes too. Laura brought her guide dog, Hestor, in to visit. She showed us how Hestor helps her find her way around and how he helps her at home.
We tried some special glasses on to give us an idea of what it is like when you are blind.
We have had a visit from some firefighters. They came to Year one to teach us all about fire safety and the importance of their role. We learnt about smoke alarms, what to do in a fire (stop, drop and roll), what a firefighter has to do in their job and what equipment and uniform they have to wear. Mrs Cross even got to dress up as a firefighter!
P.C. Ford and his colleague, from Warwickshire Police Force came into Year 1 to teach us all about their jobs. We had lots of fun learning about what they do each day and how they help others. We tried on their uniform, looked at some of the equipment they use, learnt how to direct traffic and even got to go in the back of the police van!
In DT, we have learnt about super foods and thought about which super foods Superheroes would like to eat to keep them strong and healthy. We designed a smoothie, helped to make it and then got to taste it!
We used bananas, blueberries, raspberries, strawberries and blackcurrants.
