Holbrook Primary – Year 1

Look what we are learning.

Simulations

Computers can be used to model or simulate real life, they can be games or even science experiments.  As long as the computer has the right information it can model what would happen.  As it is in a virtual world time can be sped up so a few minutes can become a few weeks or months!

BBC Learning Clips – Growing Plants

Today we are going to be using a website to help us find out about making plants grow.

We enjoyed sharing the books we took home over the holidays. We discussed whether we liked our book and what we liked about it, what happened in our story and the characters and setting. After we choose a new book to take home.

This week we will be learning how to measure capacity. We will be learning what capacity means, understanding the vocabulary full, half full and empty and learning how to use non-standard units of measurement to measure.

How do you feel?

Today we went for a learning walk around the playground to explore our sense of touch. We learnt that we use our whole body to touch starting from your head to your toes and that we feel through our skin. We used our sense of touch to discover what the things we can see around us feel like.

Help we need somebody…

Oh no there has been a casualty in 1G. One of the children have hurt themselves and has had to be rushed to our hospital role play area. But do not fear there are doctors on the ready. They have suited up with their glasses and gloves, grabbed their doctors kit and have mended the problem with their excellent body knowledge which they have learnt in science.

Autumn

We have been learning about the season of autumn. We have learnt about how the weather gets colder and the leaves on the trees change colour and fall off. We went outside to collect leaves to help us make a display for school. We also made autumn pictures using paint and our hands.

Watch us grow

We have planted sun flower seeds. We have placed our seeds by the window so that they get sunlight to help them grow. Keep looking everyday to see if our sunflowers have grown any bigger.
