Welcome to Year One
Wake up shake up
Every day we start our learning by waking up and shaking our bodies.
We have been finding out about our local area and using maps and atlases to look at some features of Old Swan and Liverpool. We also found out about the United Kingdom and realised that there are 4 countries that make up the UK.
Design and Technology
We have started our cooking sessions with Mr Deveney from Classroom Kitchen. We learnt about healthy and unhealthy choices for food. Mr Deveney showed us different fruits and vegetables and we learnt how to use the claw and bridge method to cut them. After that, we had a taste. We liked some of them but didn’t like others!
In RE, we have been learning about Harvest. We found out about Sukkot which is the Jewish Harvest. We designed and made our own Sukkahs using different construction sets.
We have been practising our kicking skills for football.
In Science we have been using our senses to find objects outside on our playground.
