Holy Trinity church visit

admin on: Year 1 Blog

Year 1 visited Holy Trinity Church to support our RE topic, 'What can we learn about Christianity by visiting a church?'

Matthew, the vicar, welcomed us to the church.  He pointed out some of the important objects, like the font, altar, lectern and pulpit, and he explained what they are used for.

We were very lucky to be able to explore the inside of the church.  The children were all brilliant at the I-spy activity.   

To finish, we sat in the pews while Matthew read a children's version of a bible story 'The Prodigal Son' then shared a prayer.  

  

  

A big well done to the children; they were a credit to the school.    

Thank you to the helpers who came with us. I hope you enjoyed it too. 

Lastly, thank you to Matthew, for letting us visit Holy Trinity and for making us feel so welcome.

Science

admin on: Year 1 Blog

To support our science, one of our parents, Mrs McGee from Fujifilm Diosynth Biotechnologies, came in to talk to the children.  They produce and purify proteins to make medicines to help treat human illness and disease.

We carried out a similar experiment using yeast, sugar, water, a bottle and a balloon. The children learned that water, food, heat and oxygen have to be present for yeast to grow. The expanding balloon showed that the yeast had grown. 

           

To remind us about spreading germs with our hands and to wash our hands properly, Mrs McGee did a brilliant activity.  Some children had to pretend to sneeze onto their hands and cover their hands with UV gel.  Then they touched and passed objects around and shook hands with their friends.  By using a UV light they could see how far the invisible gel had spread. 

After trying their best to wash their hands, the UV light was used again.  The children were shocked to see how much invisible gel was still on their hands.  They were pleased it hadn’t been a real sneeze!

            

The session was practical, visual and extremely engaging.  A big thank you to Mrs McGee from all of Year 1.

Science Experiments 15th May 2018

admin on: Year 1 Blog

Today in Year One we became real scientists! We predicted what would happen to a piece of celery when it was put into coloured water - the result was surprising.

celery experiment

Next we used a bowl of milk, food colouring and washing up liquid to make rainbow patterns - the washing up liquid quickly changed the colours back to white.

Finally we watched a bowl of Skittles make rainbow patterns after water was added - the colours didn't mix up which we found very interesting!

All the children enjoyed the science experiments and were interested in the results.

Some children have now finished their first Reading Passport and have received their prize and Bronze certificate. Well done!

Please remember - 1) the Reading Passport is for books you read at home which are NOT school books, these should be written about in your Reading Record book

2) only one box each day is to be filled in on your Reading Passport.

What are you going to read next?

Science

admin on: Year 1 Blog

As part of our Science lessons we are finding out about the Seasons. We went on a Winter walk this week and found puddles covered in thick ice. We used our senses to investigate the ice. We also took a thermometer outside and measured the temperature as 2C - very chilly as it was 24C in the classroom!
