Royal ball

To celebrate the end of our fairytales topic, year 1 had a Royal ball. Following on from our trip to Kenilworth castle, we wanted to experience what it felt like for Robert Dudley and Queen Elizabeth to have a Royal ball, invite guests and have a delicious banquet.

Thank you to all the parents who have helped with this and a big well done to all the children for their hard work.

Measuring!

We found out the mass of objects using marbles and gram weights. We were very careful and accurate. What could we find the mass of next?

Metre madness

Today we have been learning about what a metre is. We have looked at a metre stick and explored what objects in our classroom were shorter or longer than a metre.

Kenilworth castle

As part of our fairytales topic this half term, Year 1 have been learning about Castles. Today we went to Kenilworth castle.

We recognised the features of a castle which we have been learning about. Can you name some of them?

Can you write a recount of your visit to Kenilworth Castle and bring it into school to share with your class?

Once upon a time…

In Computing, we used one of our 5 keys – Working together. We used this when we made a Puppet Pal film about a fairy tale. Two pairs of hands are better than one as we can move more characters on screen at the same time, and… We can use different voices to tell the story.

Working as a pair is something we found tricky and we will try working on this key again.

Can you make puppets at home to tell a Fairy Tale?
