Year 1 and Year 4 shared their favourite books and stories with one another.
They enjoyed looking at the pictures and talking about the different characters and settings.
For World Book Day, Year 1 explored the story, 'The Gruffalo'.
We used materials from the school grounds to create our own woodland creatures from the story.
We had so much fun!
We had images of families celebrating the Chinese New Year.
We labelled the different parts of the pictures using initial sounds, word building using our phonics and adding appropriate adjectives to describe.
We completed a taste tasting and evaluating activity, using thinking skills to make predictions.
Which Chinese foods do you know already?
Can you only eat Chinese food in China?
We followed verbal and written instructions on 'How to make a Chinese Paper Lantern'.
We made models of a Chinese landmark - The Great Wall of China.
We used a variety of construction materials.
The aim of the activity was to make the longest wall!

We made a sequence of coloured shapes, changing one attribute at a time so that the sequence could end where it started, forming a circular sequence.

Adding small numbers by counting on using a bead string.
Children used reasoning and logic to play ahead in playing a game on a 1-20 track.
We looked at the 5 senses and performed simple tests in the context of investigating each in detail.
We gathered information to solve a puzzle.
We marked tags on a beaded line and labelled numbers in between.
We read and wrote numbers to 20.
In English, we have been looking at the story, 'Not a Stick' by Antoinette Portis.
We let our imaginations run wild with this magical, fun-filled book!
We found sticks of our own and transported them into ...
We have been looking at boats within our topic on 'Transport'and decided to make some of our own.
We designed, made, tested and evaluated them.
It was so much fun!
We identified and named a variety of common wild and garden plants by exploring a range of sensory plants.
We gathered and recorded data by creating pictograms showing out most popular sensory plants.
We considered what plants need to grow.
We planted some broad beans, watered them and placed them in a sunny place. We each labelled our pots.
Over the next few weeks, we will measure their growth weekly with a ruler and fill in our 'Bean Plant Diaries'.
Look at how well our broad beans have grown over the last few weeks.
