Welcome to Year One - Badger Class
Welcome to year one's class page. In year one, we love to learn by exploring and investigating both the indoor and outdoor environment. We are always up for a challenge and most of all, we always have lots of fun! This year we will be learning to work independently in a positive and safe learning environment. Our classroom is always a happy place, where myself and the year one team will be supporting the children to aim high and to be the best that they can be. On this page we will keep you updated with all of our current learning, so you can see what we have been up to.
This week we used a programme on the tablets called '2 paint a picture'. We carefully selected the colours and brush size we needed, in order to create a picture of our family. Everyone concentrated and worked really hard to create these fantastic pictures.
We have been talking to the children about the London Marathon and Mrs Parton kindly brought in her marathon medals for us to look at. Our challenge is to run a few miles over the next few weeks and take part, in our own mini London Marathon. We have also been exploring various running activities and today we had fun doing a relay. Well done everyone, you are all fantastic runners!
In PE, we have enjoyed playing lots of different games which involve us working together as a team. Our challenge today, was to travel in different ways to collect a coloured beanbag and then place it into the matching coloured hoop. The first team with all the beanbags placed inside the hoop was the winner. We all really enjoyed this game, so we played it a few times and each time we got quicker and quicker! Great team work everyone!
In Maths we have been busy using a wide range of different mathematical resources, to represent numbers in different ways. Here is a snapshot of some of the activities we explored.
In English we have been learning about sentences and sentence structure. Today we had lots of fun creating our own silly sentences with a friend.
We have had a busy first week in year one and took advantage, of the sunny weather to do some outdoor learning. We have had lots of fun exploring our new classroom and learning in lots of different ways.
