1CW

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! laugh

Welcome to home learning. We hope that you are all staying safe at home. You should all have received your home learning packs full of activities to keep you busy this week. Keep checking this page for more ideas and activities. You can e-mail Mrs Cross or Mrs Walker with your news, pictures and videos which we will share with your classmates. 
We are posting daily maths, spag (spelling, punctuation and grammar) and phonics work. We will post the answers to these the following day so that you can mark them. Click on the links below to open the document for your group. We've added some photos of the documents so you can see which challenge you would like to take. In Maths and Spag there are three levels - Red/Orange is the hardest, Yellow is the middle and Green/Blue is the easiest. The phonics is for everyone. Have fun!

HAPPY EASTER EVERYONE!

It is now the Easter holidays so no new work will be set for the next two weeks. Time to relax and have some Easter fun at home with your families! (and probably eat a chocolate egg or 2! cheeky)

Hopefully the sun will come out and you will be able to play in your gardens and maybe even have an Easter egg hunt! laugh

We miss you lots and so have loved seeing your photos showing us what you have been up to and we think you are all doing a super job! 

We will set more challenges for you after Easter and will look forward to seeing more photos.

Stay safe everyone! 

love Mrs Cross, Mrs Walker and Mrs Laight xxx

 

 

 

My cheeky bunnies, Rascal & Scamp, wish you a Happy Easter! love Mrs Cross xx

Here are my two cheeky bunnies too, Thumper and Lily! They said 'Hoppy Easter' to you all! :-)

Imogen's Home Learning!

Wednesday 26th March

Good Morning everyone!

We would have been learning about Peculiar Pets in school right now. I know you are all learning about them in your packs but if you look at the Edinburgh Zoo web page they have lots of live web cams, where you can see what the animals are up to in real time. I have just been watching the penguins playing! laugh

Let me know what you see and choose an animal to find out more about. Are they a carnivore, herbivore or omnivore? Are they nocturnal? Are they a mammal? What is their diet? Draw or make your animal too!

Have fun! 

love Mrs Cross wink

Wednesday 25th March

 

Hello 1CW, I hope you are all managing to stay safe at home and find lots of fun things to do to help your learning. It is very quiet working from home and I am missing all your happy faces in the classroom. Remember to keep reading every day and to practise your speed sounds with your adult.

 

Here is a little video to help you. :-)

Speak to you soon,

Mrs Walker.

This week we would have been starting to learn multiplication.

 

Watch this little video on how to make equal groups then try making and counting groups of 2, 5 and 10. Use objects that you have in your house to make the groups; pasta, beans, buttons or coins then see if you can record it into your home learning book.

 

Happy counting!

A Squash and a Squeeze by Julia Donaldson

 

Listen to the story then draw a picture of your favourite part in your home learning book. Write some sentences to say what is happening.

Spread the Happiness have these ideas of things to do inside. How many can you do?

Autumn 1:Superheroes

Our first topic of the year is Superheroes. As well as looking at comic book heroes, we will be learning about real-life superheroes, people who help us every day as part of their job. We will be learning about keeping safe and being healthy by eating the right foods and doing exercise.

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!

Walking on Eggs!

Real Life Superheroes!

 

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.

Visit from Dentist

 

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.

Paramedic Visit

 

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!

Guide Dog Visit

 

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.

Firefighter Visit

 

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!

Police Officer Visit

 

 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!

Super food Smoothies!

 

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.

To end our Superhero topic we had a Superhero Day! 

We all dressed as different Superheroes and practised our Superhero poses!

How many different superheroes can you see?
