OAK - Y1
Trip to Lower Moor Farm
We visited Lower Moor Farm. The children spent the morning looking for minibeasts and pond dipping. In the afternoon we went for a woodland walk, played woodland games and made tree bogarts.
Bright Lights, Big City
Oak class have been designing, making and evaluating a London taxi as part of our topic 'Bright Lights, Big City'.
We recently had a visit from the Queen to introduce our topic called ‘Bright Lights, Big City’. The children enjoyed listening to the National Anthem and having a tea party with her.
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.
