Class 4 – Y1

This week in maths we have been looking at addition. Using the part-part to whole model, we went outside and added two numbers together. We were very clever and also did it in our heads too by using our fingers! After we went back inside and had a go at addition number sentences on our own.

Wer have been experimenting with levers, in order to think about how we would like to make our moving pictures, for our superhero topic in D&T

This term we are learning about superhero and villains. Class 4 are very excited to look at our local heroes too that are in the community!

Farm to Fork

 

Welcome back from the lovely Easter holidays! This term we will be looking at farms and the different animals that live there and also how our food grows and is produced on farms. The children are very excited in particular to create their own farm vehicle using wheels and axes. I wonder which one will win the race!?  

NUMBER BONDS TO 10! Class 4 are math wizards at their number bonds.

During D&T we have been looking at animals in the forest and how to create a home/den for them to live in. We used natural objects to create them and discussed what type of den would be best for each animal.

Enchanted Kingdoms

 

This term our topic is all about enchanted kingdoms! We will be looking at the traditional tale Hansel and Gretel in literacy and also write a recount of our visit to the forest school. In numeracy we will be focusing on our problem solving skills in subtraction and addition by using our knowledge of number bonds to 10 and 20! 

 

In our art lessons we will be looking closely at sculptures, by using different techniques in order to mould and sculpt the clay into natural objects. The techniques we have looked at were rolling, squeezing, pinching and squashing. Have a sneak peak below of our class practising our moulding techniques with play dough...

Within our science/ geography lesson, we have been on a winter walk around the outside of the school. The children used Ipads to take photographs of what the winter season looks like.

SPACE!

 

This term our topic is all about space. To start off this exciting topic, in literacy, we have been creating our own versions of space poems. Class 4 and Class 5 have been focusing on the poem Two, One, Zero this past week. As a class we looked at the pattern and structure of the poem. We also looked at the verbs within the poem and created actions to match these verbs such as, blast, counting and leaving. We created short videos by using the Ipads so that we could record ourselves performing our poems. Class 4 loved working as a team to create our exciting performances. We hope you like them as much as we do!

This week in Year One we have been looking at our number bonds to 10. The children have been investigating which 2 digits can make the number 10 and creating our own number sentences.

In D&T/Art, we have been experimenting with lever strips to start our moving picture based on the Polar Regions. In Class 4 we have been looking at a 'Jack in a box' and 'side-to-side square' designs in order for our pictures to move. The children loved joining the strips together and creating the structure of their designs. Next week we will be sketching the pictures that we want to put on the moving picture such as: Penguins, Polar Bears and icebergs.

Cold Lands

 

This topic we are learning about Cold Lands and where the Arctic and Antarctica are around the world. We will find out about the different Cold Land animals, ice caps melting and how design a moving picture based on the Polar Regions. The children have loved exploring our new role play area and small world area where they can become explorers of the North/South Poles. 

 

Welcome to Class 4!

For our topic this half term, 'Through the Keyhole', we have been looking at different types of houses and homes. We started the term by visiting the Clifton House Museum and the children dressed up as a Victorian child for the day. The children loved learning about how to wash and dry clothes, make biscuits and they enjoyed walking around the huge house! After the visit we then looked at what we would find inside Victorian houses. The children were fascinated to find out that they went to the bathroom outside!

Sports Day

 

In our Olympic style sports day Class 4 represented China! We had great fun and everyone gave 100% effort. Our favourite event was the Sack Race, although it was very hard work. We had some very fast sprinters with Will, Jem, Faiz, Grace, Hannah and Isobelle getting into the final! 

Jungle

 

Class 4 are loving learning about the Jungle! We have been writing a non-chronological report about Gorillas and found out some really interesting facts. We have particularly enjoyed learning about the jungle in the role play area. The children have been doing puppet shows with the jungle animal puppets. We have created some beautiful animal print patterns using oil pastels. The children have taken lots of care and used techniques such as blending. 

 

We are very excited about our visit to the Yorkshire Wildlife park on the 28th June! We cannot wait to see some of the jungle animals we have been learning about. 

Dance Workshop - Lets Jive!

This week Class 4 have taken part in a dance work shop. We talked about dance being a good form of exercise as part of our 'Stay Strong, Live Long' topic. We had so much fun and loved doing the turns and twists with a partner. We talked about the Jive music being from a long time ago and how it was different to the music we hear today.
