DT Structures - Bridges

Andrew Rowney (admin) on: Year 1 blog

Year One received a letter from the Elders in Rainbow Land and Magic Land asking them to build a bridge. After researching suitable materials, the children set to work to create their bridges. We observed amazing perseverance and resilience during this DT Structure project. Well Done Year One.

Week Beginning 15.11.21

We have started reading our new class reader, The Owl who was Afraid of the Dark by Jill Tomlinson. In our Whole Class Reading sessions, we have used the text and thought about the adjectives used to describe Plop the Owl. The children also discussed reasons for liking and disliking the dark. We have now started to look at A Cat’s guide to the Night Sky and we are using this as a basis for more discussions.

Week Beginning 8th November

Hightlight of the week this week was Big Draw Day! We had lots of fun drawing to different music in the hall on large sheets of paper. We then were inspired by Julian Opie and created our own portraits to celebrate our curriculum driver Diversity.
