Willow class started Term 4 with a splash by investigating capacity.
Thank you to everyone able to come to our bread making Express Event today. We certainly couldn’t have undertaken something so ambitious without your help and support. As you can see from this small sample of pictures, there were lots of smiling faces!
It was Pen Only Day at Kemsley… So, in Willow Class, we not only turned off our whiteboard, but also saved paper by printing only 1 sheet per table and working as a group.
On Friday, we had a go at being TV chefs and teaching our audience how to make salt dough.
In Year 1 we have been learning about ‘bossy’ verbs. To show off our learning we wrote instructions to make a jam sandwich and then challenged our friends to follow them.
This week in Willow Class we have been writing a description of the Great Fire of London. We got into character as Will Farriner (the baker’s boy) by using our senses to explore what Will would have felt, smelt, tasted, heard and saw during the event.
This week in Topic, Willow Class tried to direct their buses to the different landmarks in London using directional language like North, South, East and West, as well as left, right, and straight ahead. They learnt the mnemonic Naughty Elephants Squirt Water to help them remember the points of a compass.
Year 1 are learning about people who help us. We had a lovely visit from the Fire Service. The children had fun trying on their uniform.
In Year 1 we have been working our reading muscles at every opportunity. Our skills are getting stronger every day!
