OAK - Y1
Sevington Victorian School
Our class were very fortunate to visit the Victorian school, as part of our 'School days' topic. Last term and this term we have been busy exploring the Victorian Era and how it compares to school life today. Our visit to Sevington, gave us a first-hand experience of being a Victorian child - practising the 3 R's - Reading, Writing and Arithmetic, eating a traditional Victorian lunch, recreation play with period Victorian toys and learning all about the Victorian artefacts. We even had Victorian names!
Oak class welcomed a visit from Zvi who is a Rabbi. He kindly came in to talk to the class about Judaism and what is means to be a Jew.
Oak class have been learning about different animals, as part of our science topic this term. We have been busy exploring the six groups - amphibians, reptiles, fish, mammals, birds and invertebrates. This week we looked at a range of different animals and then classified each animal in the correct group, according to their features.
Chop, Slice and Mash
This term Oak class have enjoyed learning about food preparation as part of our design and technology topic, using peelers, graters and knifes to practice our food preparation techniques. We were then able to create our own salads! We also explored the importance of food hygiene - washing our hands and our fruit and vegetables. It has all been very appetizing!
Oak class have been learning lots about the UK and the Queen. We have been focusing on London and how it was destroyed by the Great Fire of London and how it was rebuilt. We have been drawing its amazing buildings. We are making London taxis and learning about how to attach axles in different ways.
