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.

Year 1 Space Themed WOW Day 05.01.18

On Friday 5th January, year 1 had their space themed WOW day to start their topic. We had lots of fun learning all about space and the planets. We then created some lovely drawings of the planets. After break, we were very lucky to have a visitor come in to talk to us. Helen Sharman, the first British woman in space came to talk to us and tell us more about space. She then showed us some training activities to do and let us try some food astronauts might eat up in space. We then finished the day by graduating as junior astronauts and celebrating with Helen.
