Year 1 have been learning about capacity. The children have been using education city games to help learn the vocabulary empty, full and half full. The class completed an activity using cubes or other objects to fill different size containers and had to describe how full it was. The challenge was to predict how many objects it would take to fill the container each group had.
We had a lovely day, the sun was shining. In the morning we spent time thinking about what to wear for each season and what animals do in each season.
After an early lunch we went to the woodland nearly and saw the wheat growing,the trees and some flowers that were blooming. The children got to make nests for birds and we saw some lambs. The walk in the woodland was a perfect way to end our day at Horton Kirby.
The children in year 1 took part in a workshop. They had a great time and played games where they had to go through obstacle courses on the bikes to avoid the crocodiles and catch the spider. The children learned how to control the bike, balance and move around on the bikes in a safe way.
For 2Feet spent the day in school working with Years 1 and 2 on Scooter Safety. The children received 45 minutes of training – 20 minutes in the playground and 25 minutes on the pavements around the school. The training included a safety check of equipment, scooter control games, hazards they may encounter while out scootering and safe places to cross the road with a scooter. All children who took part enjoyed their session and came back full of enthusiasm and knowledge of scooter safety.
As part of our DT topic the children made a safe mode of transport for Humpty Dumpty. The children use bubble wrap, cotton wool and ribbons to create soft seats and seat belts for Humpty to wear.
In Year 1 we have been using the laptops to access Active learn. The children have enjoyed using the various maths games and can now log on by themselves.
In year 1 the children have learned about how to be safe at a fireworks display, They learned about Guy Fawkes and how bonfire night got its name. The children then made their own fireworks pictures using black paper and pastels. The results are beautiful.
We have been learning about where the wild things are, the children have been drawing, describing and learning about the characters in the story. We even retold part of the story using actions.
The children have been doing gymnastics as part of PE this term. We got out the equipment in the hall and used all the skills the children had been learning. They have been finding different ways to climb, move and balance. With adult support the children were using the bar and ropes.
Year 1 have started a new topic in art. The children are learning about sculpture. As part of this topic we are exploring the materials used to make sculptures. So far the children have seen examples of wire, metal, wood, clay and paper sculptures.
This week the children made Lego sculptures and explored using colours and different size pieces to create their own Lego Sculpture. All the children enjoyed experimenting with what they could make.
The children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 have been spending time in their house groups. They have been taking part in arts and crafts activities with their peers, this has given them a wonderful opportunity to spend time with each other and bond.
Over the past month the houses have met once a week and have made Christmas trees, snow globes, ice skates and Advent wreaths.
