Making fruit salads in Year 1

As part of our ‘Five a day’ topic, we have been reading the stories ‘Oliver’s Vegetables’ and ‘Oliver’s Fruit Salad’. In our classes, we made our very own fruit salad using some of our favourite fruits. We each washed and cut up the fruit. We then poured in the juice and mixed up the fruit. We even got to try some and it was delicious!

Liskeard Outdoor Learning – Year 1

Liskeard has enjoyed two sessions of outdoor learning where we have been exploring our school environment. We went around the school spotting different colours and textures. We have also worked in a group finding sticks to make a stick family and then retold the story of stickman.

Reading Stories in Year 1

Year 1 have been busy in English planning and writing their own African stories. After writing, editing and making them into a book, we were very proud of our hard work and so we went down to read them to year reception. Thank you reception for listening to us read our stories, we thoroughly enjoyed reading them to you.

Year 1 Spring Assembly

We have worked hard this term learning about plants and chicks. We also learned the story of Jack and the Beanstalk.

We then performed all that we loved learning about in an assembly.

Year 1 did fantastically in their assembly and all your teachers are proud of the hard work you’ve done.

Growing Topic: Year 1

We have been planting and watching lots of plants grow this topic. We all planted peas and are enjoying watching them grow each week. We also did an experiment and looked at how cress grows both on the windowsill and in a dark cupboard. We found out that plants need sunlight and won’t grow as well in the dark. In Liskeard, we have also planted some flowers outside of our classroom door.
