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 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.
Year 1 had a fantastic day at the Wild Place. We enjoyed exploring the park and looking at all the animals.
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.
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.
The eggs have arrived in the year 1 classrooms and we look forward to seeing some chicks in the next couple of days. We will keep you updated!
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.
In preparation for our parent cafe, Year 1 have been tasting different fruits so we can then design a smoothie using our favourite fruits. We look forward to serving our smoothies to our parents next Friday at our parent cafe.
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.
