Hello and welcome to
Honeycrisp's class page!
Check back here regularly to see all the fun things we have been up to! For your information, our P.E slot is on a Thursday and your child will need a t-shirt and shorts (or tracksuit bottoms in the winter) and footwear, as we will try and do P.E outside as much as possible. Your child will also have the opportunity to go to Forest school with Miss Hopkins and Mr Rees every other Tuesday afternoon. Please make sure your child is ready on the correct day and that they are wearing appropriate clothing for the weather. Also, all the children have their own water bottle in school so that they have access to a drink at all times. If you have any questions, please feel free to pop into the classroom in the morning or catch me on the playground.
Here's to a fun year ahead!
Term 1 - The BFG
To finish our topic this term we designed and made dream jars! We filled them with lots of pretty dreams and lights so that you can see them even when it is dark.
This week we have finished our dream jars! We have worked through a process to make them as neat as possible and our final copy has gone onto the wall. We are all very proud of ourselves because we have worked really hard. Miss Standing has seen lots of improvements over the last week and she is very happy!
This week we have been looking at the BFG's dream jars! new learnt that he loves to give children good dreams (he is a Big Friendly Giant). We have spent our topic lessons writing dreams for our friends and our art lesson painting dream jars to display them on. We learnt how to make paint lighter by adding a little bit of white to our colour. Bit by bit we made our dream jars fade from colour to white. Check back next week to see what the finished product looks like!
This week we planned and made our own version of Frobscottle. We chose ingredients as a class and then planned our drink. We picked different amounts of each ingredient and followed our plans to make our drinks. Everybody's drink turned out slightly different but we had lots of fun trying them and evaluating our creations. We then used lots of describing words to tell each other all about our drinks.
We have been learning all about what they BFG likes to eat and drink this week. We decided it would be fun to try the BFG's fizzy Frobscottle drink for ourselves so Miss Standing made it for us. There were lots of different ingredients and we helped her to follow the instructions so that she could make it. Most of us were super brave and tried it, and even better...most of us liked it! Next week we are going to have a go at making our own version!
We have started our first topic this week and we are really enjoying learning all about the BFG! We have spent lots of time thinking about what he looks like and describing him. After we had completed our descriptions Miss Standing read one out and we had to draw what she said! We all had slightly different pictures but they were all very similar. They all had: long legs with short green trouser, a white shirt with no collar, brown shoes with holes in them, a dirty brown waistcoat and huge ears! We also made dream catchers to go on our big topic board to help the BFG catch his dreams!
Hello and welcome back! We have had a lovely few days settling into Year 1! We have been learning all about how Year 1 works and we have started to make the classroom our own. We decorated puzzle pieces and thought about all the things that are important to us. We also thought about the year ahead and what we wanted to learn. As a class we made an aspirations tree with leaves saying what we want to be when we grow up and what we want to get better at in Year 1.
