What a fantastic way to end the week - Pirate day! The children have been so immersed in their learning and we have thoroughly enjoyed our day. First we continued writing our own Rumpelhook stories. Next, the children performed Ruhmelhook to the rest of the school. They were all fantastic and the rest of the school were very impressed. Then, we had a treasure hunt! What fantastic treasure we found. We used compasses to see which direction we needed to go in order to get the next to find the next clue. We were very lucky to have lovely pirate cakes made by Mrs Veasey on our return to the classroom.
This afternoon we have enjoyed lots of pirate activities including map making, labeling the pirate and pirate passports.
Also this week we have been working on place value in maths - tens and ones. The children have worked really hard to spot patterns in numbers relating to their place value. In Science we did an experiment to see which materials float and sink. The children recorded their results in a table and discussed what happened really well. We have a lovely RE display which shows the children's pictures and the Baptism candles they have made this week, feel free to come in after school and have a look next week!
Thank-you for all of your effort making the children's pirate costumes, they looked great and had a great time! Please look at the Year 1 - Galleries section of the website for all of the photos.
We are focusing on spelling the days of the week next week so please practise these at home.
Have a lovely weekend.
Miss Dixon and the Year 1 team.
