Holi Festival

We had a fantastic RE/Art day based around the Hindu festival of Holi.We made a Hindu shrine  in the classroom and talked about what the different things on the Puja table represented.We also made elephant masks and looked at different pictures of decorated elephants in India.We had fun making messy paintings by blowing paint with straws!!

Have you heard about the bird?

In year one we’re reading the book shh! We have a plan. In the book there is a beautiful bird in which the characters try to catch. We thought it would be a great idea to create our own beautiful birds!! Look at the great examples below. They are tweetrific!!

Fruit kebabs

In maths, to further our understanding of weight we were set the task of creating a fruit kebab within the weight of 50/70g!! If the children were successful, they were lucky enough to eat the fruit as part as are healthy eating topic with Jigsaw Jack. For a challenge some children aimed to get 65g!! It certainly was a fruitastic lesson!!!

´╗┐Measuring using grams!

In year one, we have been exploring with grams! We were really impressed that 1kg=1000grams! Wow!

We had a go at holding different weights in our hands and then we used the scales to weigh some classroom and kitchen items!

We thought that we could look at some objects in our own kitchens and see what they weighed in grams!
