Fantastic Freeze Framing

This week the Grasshoppers have been using the story ‘Owl Babies’ in their learning. We did some amazing freeze framing yesterday. These photos show how the three Owl Babies (Sarah, Percy and Bill) were feeling when they realised their mother had gone!

Year 1 Grasshoppers’ Class Assembly

What a fantastic performance! The Grasshoppers amazed their audience with their knights and castle themed production. Everyone was impressed with all of the work displayed in their classroom, the performance of ‘George and the Dragon’ and the songs about knights.

 

Thank you to our #incrediblecommunity for their ongoing support.

Year 1 Grasshoppers’ Trip to Bolsover Castle

The Grasshoppers had a great time visiting Bolsover Castle. We spent the day exploring the ruins and talking about the size of the rooms – we couldn’t believe how big they were! The dungeons were horrible and we didn’t like being down there! In the afternoon, we looked around the smaller house and learnt about the people who used to live in the castle. We really enjoyed pretending to be Kings and Queens and sitting on the thrones. We finished off the day by having some fun in the play area and visiting the gift shop. We had a wonderful day!

Instructions

This week, we are learning how to write instructions. Today, in literacy, we looked at and ordered a set of instructions for how to make a jam sandwich. Then, we tried out our instructions to see if they worked! We loved eating our sandwiches!

Cook It

The Year 1 Grasshoppers have been busy making gingerbread men this week! The children really enjoyed weighing and measuring all their ingredients and gave their muscles a good work out stirring everything together. They loved the smells during baking time and even helped Mrs. White to wash up when they had finished.

 

At the end of the week, the children decorated their gingerbread men and enjoyed eating one in class and then took one home for grown-ups to try – we hope you enjoyed them!

Super number work!

Today the Y1 Grasshoppers having been showing off their number skills. They have used cubes to make ‘snakes’. Everybody counted really carefully and made a snake of 10 cubes. We all tried to make one snake that was bigger than 10 and one snake that was smaller than 10 and we labelled each snake to say how many cubes we had used!
