More Film It from the Dragonflies

During their second Film It Week of  the year, the Dragonflies have enjoyed developing some new skills on the iPads. All children worked in threes to take photos of class work. Afterwards, they took turns to add titles and text to complete the film. They even added credits! Here is one example:

Grow It 2018

After School Gardening Club have been making some delicious cakes for our garden birds. Instead of mixing eggs, flour and sugar together, they have been using dried fruit, oats, sunflower hearts and dried meal worms! Our feathered friends definitely won’t go hungry this winter!

Cook It Week

In our Cook It sessions, Year 1 have been making fruit skewers. They all enjoyed the colourful activity and thought their end results looked like a mega structure! During the sessions, the children discussed where the fruit came from, how it grows and whether the fruit was in season or not. Year 1 learned how to cut safely, chop correctly (trying to use a ‘bridge’ technique), and they even know that they do not use knives without an adult present. Well done, Dragonflies!

Maths this Week…

This week, we have been identifying and describing 2D shapes. Children have made shapes with their own body to become familiar with key vocabulary and working with shapes in different orientations. We all know the shape names and even played guessing games using riddles. Some children came up with their own riddle.

Can you guess this one? ‘I am a 2D shape with four edges. My edges are straight. My edges are equal length. What shape am I?’

In IT, this term …

…we first learned how to log on and off computers in the IT suite, mastering our skills with a keyboard and a mouse. Recently, we have been learning about greetings cards and even searched up images on Google to use in our own cards!

Y1 Dragonflies

The Dragonflies enjoyed reading ‘Bob Robber and Dancing Jane’ by Andrew Matthews. What wonderful descriptions and instructions the children have written inspired by the tender use of vocabulary in the text. We also used drama to act out setting. The children have been identifying and using adjectives and imperative verbs in their work and are looking forward to finding out if Bob Robber can change his thieving ways!

Fantastic Counting

In maths, we have been trying to achieve our learning objective of counting in 2s, 5s and 10s. Some of the children have even started to learn the sequences backwards. We decided to do some maths outside, grouping ourselves in to 2s and 10s to make 20. Back in the classroom we enjoyed making an array of 4 lines of 5.

Knights and Castles

The Dragonflies have absolutely loved their topic – Castles and Knights. In literacy, we have been learning about and writing our own versions of traditional stories. In the provisional areas it has been amazing to see the art, role play and small world work too.

Year 1 start to Film It!

The children have been fantastic when using iPads! They have taken photos, put them in order and told our adults what they would like to type on the video in the text boxes.

All About Me

We have been exploring writing linked to our topic ‘ All About Me!’ in our first days as Year 1 Dragonflies. Children have worked independently and in small groups to create some pieces to be very proud of.
