Year 1 Literacy Lesson
In October, we went on an Autumn Walk to Sutcliffe Park. We will be conducting a study of a horse chestnut tree over the course of a year.
We placed five hoola hoops around the tree, one metre from the tree trunk and each group surveyed what they found in their hoola hoop.
We recorded the results. We found horse chestnuts (conkers) and red, brown and yellow leaves.
It poured with rain but we were so busy enjoying our learning that we didn't mind at all!
Week Commencing 14 October 2019
In Literacy we have been learning how to re-tell the story of The Snail and the Whale. We used our washing line to sequence the story and to plan the language we would use.
We enjoyed our African Dance workshop to celebrate Black History Month. We learnt lots of dance moves and had an exciting time practising them!
We have also been planning our List poems. We studied a picture of undersea creatures for inspiration and used adjectives to describe them. We are now editing our poems to make them even better!
