Welcome to 1T

Mrs Tewnion and Mrs Smith

Welcome to 1T'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.

 

A Toy's Story

This term we will be exploring different materials and their properties and why certain materials are used to make our toys. We will be comparing toys from the past and present including the materials used to make them and how toys have changed over time. We will then be doing our own observational drawings of toys to help us in designing our own moving toy. We will finish the term by making our moving toy for our own toy exhibition.

Number Detectives

Year 1 became number detectives when they were set the challenge to see how many different ways they can find to make ten using only two numbers!

We are going to be practising quick recall of these number facts.

Teamwork

The whole class showed fantastic teamwork as we worked together to attach the axels and wheels to the base of our pull-a-long toys. Children were quick to help each other and share skills and showed a real compassion for their classmates as they strived for everyone to succeed.

We were all very happy when our testing showed that everybodies base works!

Next we will be attaching our animal characters to the top.

Don't forget parents...our class exhibition is Thursday (18th) at 2.30pm. See you there!

Pull-a-long Toys

We are continuing to work on our pull-a-long toys ahead of our exhibition this week. Today we have been painting the base of our toys ready to add axels and wheels tomorrow.

Don't forget the classroom will be open for you to come and see all our hard work from 2.30pm on Thursday 18th October.

Remembrance Art

While Mrs Tewnion was meeting with parents on Thursday, the children were busy using their observational drawing skills to sketch pictures of poppies for our contribution to the exhibition being held at Boston Stump for Remembrance Day. 

Look at these amazing drawings which we have chosen to enter, the children have done a wonderful job of using different pencil types and they have looked closely at the shapes within a poppy. 

Messy Learning

Today we learnt how to paper mache as we strengthen the box that will be the base of our pull along toy.

It was very messy but a lot of fun! All the children did a wonderful job, now we just have to wait for it to dry.
