Year 1 Teaching Trees Trip

Planting Seeds in Year 1

Year 1 Summer 1

Welcome back to Summer 1 in Year 1.

This half term in Year 1 our topic is ‘The Enchanted Woodland’ and we will be learning:

Phonics – revising our new Phase 5 sounds and practising for the Phonics Screening check by reading real and alien words. We will also be learning to add the prefix ‘un’. We will be adding suffixes by using the spelling rule to add -s, -es to words and using –ing, –ed, –er and –est where no change is needed in the spelling of root words [for example, helping, helped, helper, eating, quicker, quickest].

English – Non-fiction – fact files and instructions

Maths – Multiplication and division. We will count in multiples of twos, fives and tens. We will be learning to solve one step problems involving multiplication and division, by calculating the answer using concrete objects, pictorial representations and arrays with the support of the teacher.

Science – Plants and trees. We will be learning to identify and name a variety of common plants and deciduous and evergreen trees. We will discuss what plants and trees need to grow and describe the structure of common flowering plants, including trees.

DT/Art – Observational drawing using different media and materials.

RE – Judaism – Who is Jewish and what do they believe?

PE – (every Friday afternoon)

Dates for diary – Thursday 2nd May is our trip to Ledston Estate to support our topic in Science.

Another busy half term of new learning to look forward to. Thank you for your continued support.

Year 2 visit Yorkshire Wildlife Park

As part of our topic on Africa Year 2 went to learn about and visit the wild animals at Yorkshire Wildlife Park. First, we had a lesson with Lucy, who was very knowledgable and informative. Did you know that an ostrich egg is the same as 26 chicken eggs? Or can you find out the difference between “poisonous” and “venomous”? After the lesson, we went to look at the animals. The weather was fine so we had our picnic outside and then on to see some more creatures. What a memorable day!

 

 

 

 

 

Warburtons visit Year 2

In Science and Design and Technology, we have been learning about eating healthily. We had a lady from Warburtons come and visit us. She told us about the history of Warburtons and then explained how to make a “rainbow sandwich”. Did you know that the more colours you have in your sandwich , the healthier the sandwich is? For example, yellow, red or green peppers, red tomatoes, green cucumber, yellow sweetcorn and pink tuna.

   

They look good enough to eat!

 

Animal Visitors in Year 1!

Year 4 Photos – Spring 1

We have been very busy this half term! Here are some photos to prove it!!

In Maths, we have been learning about angles, symmetry, perimeter and properties of 2D shapes.In Science, the rice experiment taught us that vibrations create sound and we investigated how to make a low and high pitched sound with various instruments.

In English, we learnt a Polish legend about a clever cobbler who defeated a terrible dragon and a rhythm and rap poem about an iguana. In RE, we learnt how Hindus worship at home and in a Mandir and created a Hindu shine in our classroom. In French, we learn to name the parts of the body and what to say at the doctor’s. We also took part in a fantastic workshop on the Ancient Egyptian mummies!

Well done, Year 4!

Year 6 Science & Media Museum

On Wednesday 13th February,Year 6 went on a visit to the Science & Media Museum in Bradford. We went on the bus and took part in lots of activities once we were there.

We looked at the TV, gaming and animation exhibitions. In addition, we took part in a ‘Light it up’ session with science experiments about light. Before lunch we watched an Imax film and saw the dissection of a sheep’s eye and learnt the parts. Lastly we explored the Wonderlab and conducted science experiments.

Well done Year 6. You were a credit to the school and learnt lots!

How The Moon Moves

In Science, year five have been learning about Space. For their final lesson, they discovered how the moon moves. The children worked in groups to produce a model which demonstrates the way the moon rotates and translates around the earth. They also discovered the four different moons we experience and how long the cycle takes. Do you know what they are and how long it takes?
