Big Question

by Miss De Sanctis and Miss Bennett

This term's Big Question in Year 1 is 'What did Grandma and Grandpa play with when they were children?'

We have been learning about old and modern toys and looking at the changes over time.

This week we made a Cup and Ball toy, so that the children could experience toys from beyond their living memory.

The children then discussed what they liked about their toy and what they could do to improve it.

Challenge - How is this toy different from toys you usually play with at home?

Anti-Bullying Week

by Miss De Sanctis and Miss Bennett

Today Year 1 wore odd socks to celebrate Odd Socks Day, as part of Anti-Bullying Week.

We discussed how we are all unique, but we are all special and we respect each others' differences. 

We all complemented each others' odd socks to appreciate our uniqueness!

Class Charter

by Miss Bennett

1SB have been learning about their rights as children and how the adults that work with them will help them to maintain those rights. 

As duty holders, the children must follow the school's rules, to ensure everyone has the chance of an excellent education and the chance to rest and play.

As duty bearers, the adults must follow the school's rules and make sure the rules are followed, to ensure everyone has the chance of an excellent education and the chance to rest and play.

We are all responsible in our school to respect these rights.

Black History Month

by Miss Bennett

 

 

In remembrance of Black History, 1SB have been learning about the local artist Chris Ofili. 

Chris Ofili is a local boy from Manchester. He went on to become the first black artist to win a Turner Prize and he has also been awarded a CBE for his contributions to the art world.

We did a whole class colloborative art project based on his work, using different art skills to produce each part of the picture. 

The children selected different sized brushes and experimented with how thick and thin brushes produce a different effect. As we have been studying seasons and about Autumn in Science and Big Question this half term, the children also selected appropriate colours to tie in with the Autumnal theme.

The children loved the project and are all really proud of the final piece.
