Welcome to Year One Page
After visiting the Crown Jewels we learned more about the crown that was made for Prince Charles in 1969 and the symbols included. We thought about symbols that would represent us and designed our own crowns before making them.
Some photos from our brilliant trip to the Tower of London today plus some examples of our quick sketches of the landmarks we could see.
After looking at examples of Kente cloth from Ghana we were inspired to make these paper weavings.
We learned about hot and cold colours and then applied our learning to make these Hot Dogs and Cool Cats.
Some pictures from our Pentecost party. We celebrated the birthday of the church as well as all the birthdays we had missed in Lockdown.
We have enjoyed watching our tadpoles change into froglets but today we said goodbye because it was time for them to return to the pond.
In Computing today we used the four way symmetry tool and a tiling tool to make William Morris inspired wallpaper designs.
So impressed with these William Morris inspired prints. The children followed the instructions really well and did a fantastic job!
We have been learning about The Owl and the Pussycat in our English lessons. We have made illustrations for our own version of the poem.
The Flower Fairies have been helping us to identify the plants growing in our school garden as part of our Science work. Look at our amazing observational drawings. Can you name the flowers?
We made this display about this term’s value of “Openness”.
More artwork inspired by Yinka Shonibare.
Which is his and which is Year 1’s?!
As part of our Topic work about Famous People we learned about the artist Yinka Shonibare. We learned that he sometimes uses objects to tell stories and start conversations. We were inspired to make Self Portraits using objects.
How well do you know your friends? Can you tell whose is whose?
