This week we have been visited by two police officers. They took the time to come into classrooms and answer our questions, talk about their kit, and about their role working in the community. The children had great fun climbing in the police car, watching the flashing blue lights, and hearing the siren close up, it was very loud!
Next week we are going to be nutritionalists and cooks, we will be making healthy cookies to share with our adults on Friday at our share event.
Welcome to 1GP's class page, look regularly to see what we have been learning in class.
So far this term we have learnt about what our brains need to be healthy and about our senses. We have been thinking about our behaviour buddies and how they help us learn; they are helping the children understand that mistakes help us learn and that team work and perseverence are key elements to having fun and learning in school. In the next few weeks, (until the half term) the children will be thinking about what they want to be when they grow up. So far our list includes wrestlers, karate instructors, rollercoaster engineers, pilots, police officers and some one who just wants to be able to boss everyone else about. We are hopefully having visits from a dentist, fire officer and and police officer, if you or any family members would like to come and talk to the children about their work just let us know.
This week in Math's we have been learning our doubles to 10. We have used dominoes to help us find and understand what a double is. We have also used numicon tiles to make doubles to 10 and then write the calculation. Next week we are learning about 2D shapes.
We are also becoming architects with the ambitious task of making a building individually and then putting all our buildings together to build a small scale design project. Please send in any small boxes that the childen can use to help make their buildings at the start of the week.
This week in Year 1 we have had a visit from some paramedics and the children had the opportunity to explore
their ambulance. They had great fun having their hearts monitored and pretending they had broken legs; they asked lots of questions and found out about all the equipment that an ambulance carries and what it is for. We also made collages of different types of careers; we made, drivers, nurses, police oficers, teachers, carers and engineers.
