Welcome to 1A

Mrs Tewnion and Mrs Chalk

Welcome to 1A's class page. Here you can find out what we have been up to in class, how we are getting on with our learning as well as photos of our adventures! We will also share useful links to websites for things the children could have a go at, at home, to support with their learning in class.

Skegness Aquarium

We had a wonderful day at Skegness Aquarium. From sitting on the top deck of a double decker bus to meeting Nudge the Zebra shark, our day was full of new experiences. Here are just a few photos of our adventures.

 

The education team did a workshop with us where we learnt about different habitats on the coast and different kinds of water habitats. We learnt about the kinds of plabts abd animals we might find in these habitats and then we sorted the fish into the places where we might find them (rockpool, coral reef or open ocean). All the way through we collected points for our teams to get a prize at the end.

 

As we began our tour of the aquarium we enjoyed exploring the viewing bubble which allowed us to feel as if we were in the main tank! It was very funny when the stingrays swam over our heads! 

 

It was interesting to learn about different kinds of under water animals from around the world as we went through the aquarium looking in the different tanks. We saw an octopus, Dory, Nemo and lots of different small fish including baby sting rays in the nursery tank.

 

Feeding time at the main tank was one of our favourite parts of the day. We loved seeing the big sting rays, the different kinds of share and so many different kinds of fish. What a beautiful sight it all was! We met the 2 divers and they answered some of our questions before they started feeding. We discovered how clever fish can be, they are trained to recognise the colour of glove the diver is wearing to know when it is their turn to feed.

 

We had just a little bit of time left to explore the interactive displays before it was time to get on the bus and come back to school.

 

Mrs Tewnion and Mrs Chalk were very impressed with the children's behaviour and enthusiasm for all that we did.

We would like to give a big thank you to the parents who came along with us and helped to make it possible.

 

Minibeast Art

Here we are starting the colour base for our minibeast paperweights.

Next we will be painting the details to make them look more like ladybirds, dragonflies, bumblebees and caterpillars.

Ten Commandments

As part of our learning in RE on special books we looked today at the 10 rules God gave. We learnt how these can be found in both the Torah and the Bible.

Mrs Tewnion used donuts to help us understand what God was teaching and to help us to relate these rules into our own lives.

We had some interesting discussions about which commandments we thought were the most important. 

 

"If you could make an 11th commandment what would it be?"

The responses to this question were super, Mrs Tewnion and Mrs Chalk were very impressed with how thoughtful and reflective we all were.

Ready, Steady, Go!

Well done 1A, what a wonderful sports day we had!

Thank you to all the parents and carers who were able to come along and support us.

Plickers Quiz

Mrs Tewnion has been part of a research project this year into memory and recall of information. As part of this year 1 have been exploring different ways to support their brain in retrieving prior learning. Our favourite has been through the online quiz creator called Plickers.

We love using our individual cards to choose our answer and see how many of us can get the right answer. It is helping us to work on our maths skills.

In today's quiz time we chose for ourselves which area of maths we wanted to work on. We are getting better at identifying for ourselves what we need to practise.

Here we are in action...
