We came into school this morning to find a letter on the whiteboard. It was from John who is a Palaeontologist, he told us to look on the field for dinosaur bones. We ventured out to find some very exciting bones, lots of different shapes and sizes! We then wrote a re-count about the morning and focused on adding 'ed' onto the end of words. We were very excited!! Check out some of our writing!
Today in Phonics we made our learning hands on. We played a game of pick up sticks where we tried our hardest not not to move any other sticks when picking up the one we selected. We had to sort the words on the sticks into real and nonsense words.
Some of us took our learning outside and use paintbrushes and water to write words with split-vowel digraphs in.
Today we celebrated our learning this term with a medieval day. We started the day with some medieval dancing. We listened to some traditional music and worked in groups to design our own dance-check out Seesaw to see our dances.
We then sat down to a medieval banquet where we tucked into to delicious goodies from the medieval period- eggs, bread and butter, cheese, fried plums. We burned off our banquet with a jousting competition, where we ad to reach the other side of the hall on our horse without getting caught by our opponent.
This afternoon we had a West End Theatre company come to help us re-enact the story of 'George and the Dragon' through dance. We learnt different moves, routines and worked together with Amy. We were certainly puffed out by the end of the routine!
Thank you to all of the effort with the costumes, the children all looked fantastic!!
You have worked really hard on this topic Year 1!
