Our topic this term is "I am unique". Today we used mirrors to look at our faces. We drew ourselves and talked about the similarities and differences. We know that we are all special.
For our first computing lesson, we learnt how to correctly turn a computer, log in, and shut them down correctly.
We are enjoying our Mini Kixx sessions. We are learning multi-skills and are having lots of fun.
This afternoon we looked at x-rays of the human body and felt our bones. We talked about why our skeletons are important and then worked as a team to create our own life-size skeleton. We worked hard to cut out the bones and to use instructions to piece them together.
In maths we have been looking at numbers to 10. We have been using tens-frames to make and count numbers to 10. We have also practised counting to 100 and counting in 2s, 5s, and 10s.
We really enjoyed making our own moving skeletons using split pins. Our skeletons could move their arms to do the skeleton dance.
We have had a fantastic start to Year 1. We have explored our new classroom, have been kind to our friends, and learnt about squirrels. We made fantastic artwork using paint and sponges. We stuck a squirrel onto our page, used paint, then peeled it off. We loved creating our magic squirrel pictures.
