Term 6 Project: Is life in space different than life on Earth?

Coming soon…

Term 5 Pirates

Our project for this term is focusing all on Pirates. We want to answer the question ‘which community will suit Blackbeard better?’ We’ll be learning all about John Cabot and his voyages from Bristol to Newfoundland and we’ll compare Canada to the UK to see which would be a better fit for Blackbeard’s motley crew! We’ve already started our project through a letter from Blackbeard himself! He sent us on a treasure hunt around the school, and we used our map skills to navigate the school grounds and to locate all the treasure.

For our project we looked at the driving question ‘Which community would be better for Blackbeard?’ The children learned about the continents and the oceans and where they’re located on a globe/map. They explored the geographical characteristics of Bristol and Newfoundland in Canada and compared them. They learned all about John Cabot and why he’s a significant person in Bristol’s history and although we weren’t able to go on a school trip, most of us still managed to visit the Matthew for some hands on learning! We also explored different materials, tested  whether they floated or sank and then created our own pirate boats!

Term 4 Science Week

Here are a few pictures of what we got up to during Science Week! It was amazing to be back in school and the children were keen for some hands on learning through our experiments. We made Rocket mice, melted wax crayons, explored colour mixing and even created some exploding coke volcanos!

Term 2

This term our project question is ‘What makes a Healthy Superhero?’ As part of our hook, the children came in dressed as super-heroes and we discussed what makes a person a super-hero. We all agreed it was people who help us.
We then received a very exciting visit from the police and the children were able to ask A LOT of questions about what they do and how they keep people safe!
Also, as part of this topic, the children have started learning about Florence Nightingale and how she helped people. We tried our hand at being nurses, it was a lot harder than first thought!

We have learnt all about our body this term and had great fun labelling our friends with post it notes! We also talked about our super senses and put them to the test with lots of tasting, hearing and smelling!

We also tested some healthy snacks and decided that our home-made pizzas were our favourites. We then wrote recipes for the pizza so that everyone could give it a try!

Term 1

What a busy first term we’ve had in Year 1! We focused on the story of Traction man and acted out and created our own stories! We explored different descriptive words and worked on building up our writing to produce full sentences.
We’ve enjoyed lots of practical maths exploring numbers 1-10 through adding, subtracting, place value and ordering.
We’ve also enjoyed learning out in our forest area!
