Year 1 have been looking at poems over the last few weeks. We have been reading a selection of rhymes and poems and even had a go at writing our own. We based our Competition entry poems around the senses and thought about the things we can see, hear, smell taste and feel. We tried to use lots of descriptive language (adjectives) in our writing. We are sending the entries off soon so fingers crossed!
Story Stop Tuesday
Fire Safety Talk for Year 1
Today we had a visit from Nuneaton Fire Service to talk to us about the importance of keeping safe around fire. We looked at safe and unsafe fires. We looked at the clothes fire fighters wear before going near a fire and we learnt a technique to help if our clothes accidently caught on fire. STOP-DROP-ROLL and we learnt a rhyme to remind us to never play with mathches.
Matches and lighters never touch
They might hurt you very much.
Internet Safety Day
We had an assembly and time in class, learning about how to stay safe on the internet. We designed a poster to help us remember some of the important rules.
This week we have been experimenting with writing the 'Victorian way' using dip pens and slate and chalk. We had great fun but decided that using pencils is much easier.
This term we are looking at schools over the past 100 years. We have created a small Victorian role pay area in the classroom with an abacus, easel and slates to write on. The children have experienced some traditional old fashioned games in P.E
Thank you to all the parents that were able to attend our reading session today. It was great to see you all and the children really enjoyed sharing some books with you.
Autumn 1 Term the children in Year 1 enjoyed the Superheroes topic. They engaged in small world and role play activities and made and designed their own superheroes. We read lots of stories related to this topic and learnt about the real life superhero Grace Darling and what her life was like in Victorian times.
