Here's another easy, fun and educational nature activity! πŸŒΏπŸ’š

This is a great way to explore shapes while interacting with nature, building spatial awareness and fine motor skills! For this easy activity, all you need are sticks and rubber bands.

First, create 2D shapes with your sticks. How many shapes can you make? What are they called? Next, make flat 3D shapes. Then, challenge yourself to make 3D models of each shape using rubber bands to connect your sticks. Finally, use your imagination to transform your models into something new (tiny houses, space ships, boats, etc.)!

Welcome to Year 1

Our class value is Compassion.

Year 1 Trip to the V&A Museum of Childhood

St Andrew's and Westgrove Primary School are currently working together on an Early Reading Project. The aims of which are to promote a love of reading in the Early Years. Year 1 went to visit Westgrove Reception classes last term. This term, it was Westgrove's turn to come to our school to talk about a book they had been reading.

Year 1 brought their teddy bears to school this week. We sketched them as part of our Art lesson. We will be making sculptures of our teddies later on in the term.

Rainbow Group have been continuing to enjoy their learning this term!

Year 1 went on a trip to London Zoo to learn all about animals. We also met Father Christmas!

Year 1 made Christingles at Christmas time.

In English, Year 1 have been writing setting and character descriptions about Bog Baby. We started off by making a habitat for Bog Baby with things we had found from the forest.

In Science, Year 1 have been learning about animals and habits. We constructed a house showing 4 different biomes.

In RE, Year 1 have been learning about Hinduism. We learned about the story of Ganesha. We planned our stories using colourful semantics to help.

Year 1 have been learning how to make numbers using tens and ones.

Year 1 visited the local Southgate library to find out about how to borrow books and what a librarian does. We made our own library cards.

Year 1 really enjoyed Forest School and learning about seasonal changes.

Year 1 made Numicon baguettes to 20 to help out the local sandwich shop. We wrote the Maths recipes on post-its.

Year 1 have been learning all about place value within 20. We like to use Numicon to help us.
