Welcome to 1Ir!
Red Nose Day
We all dressed up as our super heroes for Red Nose Day and donated some money to this amazing charity.
In our geography lessons we have been comparing the Isle of Coll to where we live. We noticed that there was mountains and coasts on the island and there wasn’t many shops or places to visit such as a zoo or a McDonalds restaurant! We discussed the physical features and the man-made features on the island then we created a map by drawing the outline first. We then painted the island and drew the buildings to stick on top.
We have been thinking about how kind and caring our mummies are. We have written about our mummies on a heart and made them a beautiful card. We have also painted a picture of our mummies, created a tissue paper flower and made them a bookmark. We hope all our mummies have a wonderful day!
World Book Day
Today we came to school in our pyjamas! We have also been doing lots of fun activities all week with the story ‘The Tiger Who Came To Tea’. Everyday Mrs Ireland has been reading stories to us and the children at home, about the Large family who are a family of elephants who always get up to something funny! On Friday we all brought our favourite books in to show the other children and tell them why it is our favourite.
Christmas Jumper Day
We loved Christmas Jumper Day and raised lots of money for charity. We also sang some Christmas songs in front of the Christmas tree in the hall. We wish you all a merry Christmas and a very happy New Year!
In our maths lessons we have been learning about place value. We learnt about tens and ones and how many there are in some numbers. Then we used the Dienes to add two numbers together.
2021 Calendar and Christmas Card
In our seasons topic we learnt about what happened to the weather and trees during each of the four seasons. We made a calendar showing the changes in each season. We also made a snowman Christmas card for our families showing a wintery scene.
Children in Need Day
Today we all dressed up in our own clothes or Pudsy clothes and donated some money to help children less fortunate than ourselves.
This half-term we have been learning about seasons. We went on a walk to discover what happens to the trees in autumn. We noticed lot of the trees had lost their leaves and learnt that they were deciduous trees. We found out that trees which do not lose their leaves are called evergreen trees.
My World and Me Topic
In this topic we have been learning about our families, homes, our body part and the five senses. We used multi-media to create a picture of our homes and made a Mr Potato Man to show which body parts we use for our senses.
This half-term in maths we have been using Numicon to order 1 - 10 and learning how to make number bonds to 10.
