Have a look below to see what we have been up to!
We have been learning about Guy Fawkes and the events from Bonfire Night in literacy. We created freeze frames for each part of the story to show our understanding.
Then, we did a ‘conscience alley’ to decide whether Guy Fawkes did the right or the wrong thing. We tried to persuade each other to come to our sides.
PHSE in Year 1
Year One have been doing amazing PHSE work. We have been celebrating each other’s similarities and differences. Here is Year One during their circle time discussing how we are similar and different in our tastes, our likes, our dislikes and our opinions.
Music in Year 1
This week in music, we followed the theme of ‘waves’ as we have been learning about Tiddler.
First, we did some acting and pretended to be a wave. Then, we watched a clip of waves crashing and had to listen to the change in volume as the wave drew back and then crashed. It was very quiet as the wave settled and drew back and it got louder as it rolled and crashed to the shore. We moved our hands together and apart to show the change in volume as we watched the waves.
Once we were confident understanding the change in volume of the waves, we got the instruments out. We sat in groups with different instruments and Mrs Hills was the conductor. We had to watch really carefully to when she pointed at each group because that meant we could play and when she pointed at us again, we had to stop. The volume of the instruments built up like the wave and then went back down again. We were brilliant at watching and listening to the instructions!
