OAK - Y1
Wonderful Work - Lockdown Learning!
As part of our Dinosaur Planet topic we learned and recited a poem called Roar! The children enjoyed this activity and we had a super discussion about the expressions and sounds we could use to make an excellent performance. We then wrote a free verse poem together using some alliteration.
Where The Wild Things Are
As part of our English work this term, Oak class have been enjoying ‘Where the Wild Things are’ by Maurice Sendak. We have been looking closely at the text and illustrations and discussing the story. Today we formed small groups and then created and performed our own ‘wild rumpus’ using instruments and movements.
In Oak Class we learned about Remembrance Day and wrote an acrostic poem together.
Topic - Dinosaur Planet
To begin this terms topic ‘Dinosaur Planet’ Oak class became excavators for the morning. Children were put into teams and then given the opportunity to excavate ice to reveal a hidden dinosaur and also to discover hidden dinosaur bones which they then worked together to re-assemble.
The children really enjoyed this experience and it gave us lots of discussion and writing opportunities.
Here We Are!
We wrote our own instructions on how to make a bird feeder.
We also made streamers and thought about dance moves to the song ‘What a wonderful world' by Louis Armstrong.
