Wow! What an amazing week of learning year 1 are having! We visited the Laing gallery to learn all about printing techniques, we have been solving word problems in maths through anchor tasks and acting out the story of Handa’s surprise to help us plan for story writing. Amazing work year 1 well done!
Wow what a busy day in year 1.
As part of our design and technology topic, we have been looking at fruits and vegetables and how we can use a blender to make these into healthy smoothies.
We have learnt that fruits have seeds and that vegetables have roots, leaves and stems. We sorted fruits and vegetables and learnt about where they grow, on trees or vines, above the ground or below the ground.
We extended our learning further to explore how fruit and vegetables can be made into smoothies as a way to help us ensure we get our 5 a day.
We carried out taste testing on a range of smoothies and tried to guess the ingredients before designing and making our own.
And…… best of all, we got to drink the smoothies at the end of the day.
As part of our World Book Day Celebrations Year 1 and Year 5 enjoyed being reading buddys!.
Year 1 have really enjoyed their first week back! We’ve been practising basic skills in maths, learning about odd and even numbers in our morning Mastering number sessions, identifying hot and cold places in Geography, learning about the features of traditional tales in English, forming letters carefully in handwriting lessons and evaluating the collages of Barbara Shaw and Megan Coyle in art.
Lots of certificates for engagement, responsibility and reader of the week. Well done Year 1 – a fabulous start to the spring term.
Over the last two days, every child from Reception to Year 6 has taken part in a STEM project.in collaboration with the KAPLA workshop team. They have learned how to work as a team and shown resilience and engagement with the process in order to complete their final build.
We have built ski villages, giraffes, houses, crocodiles, boats and so much more! The wooden bricks needed to be carefully placed to make different shapes that would stand tall. There was no glue, no fixing mechanisms, just pure determination and a methodical, systematic approach.
We are so proud of what we managed to achieve together! A massive thank you to all of those parents and adults that helped our children enjoy an amazing learning experience.
The school council decided that they would like to buy some resources for our chilckens and ducks.
In assembley they launched the idea of a bake sale to the whole school. Each member of the student council explained why they loved our animals so much and how important they were to everyone in school.
The children made 300 cakes and dedicated some of their lunch break to sell them to the rest of the school.
Everyone loved their cake and Wow!!! we raised £75.93. The next decision is what to buy!!
Look what we have been learning!
Representing Hedworthfield Primary some of our school councillors, attended the Remembrance Day Ceremony at Monkton Cenotaph.
Members of the student council presented a wreath, on behalf of the school and displayed some art work, that the chilkdren had produced to show their respect.
The children have taken part in class elections. They wrote a manifesto and presented their ideas to their classmates. We discussed the UK voting system and British values before attending our very own Polling Station to vote.
The successful candidates were announced by our special guests Cllr G Kilgour and Cllr J Potts.
Well done everyone!
