Shine your Light

Year 1 2017/18

Foundation Phase 1/2

Sports Day was fun.

We learned about keeping safe at the seaside.

We have been making and investigating boats.

We performed the story On a Pirate Ship by Sarah Courtauld. First we wrote and rehearsed our lines. Then we made props and practised how to act it out. Next we made sounds or used musical instruments to make the sounds in the story.

Later on we decided if we would prefer to be left on the swirly seas or to become pirates, like the characters in the book. We tried to persuade our friends to agree with our choice.

We designed and made boats.

Some floated and some sank so we thought of ways of improving our designs.

What do you think happened when this pirate ship was put into the water?

We enjoyed the story What the Ladybird Heard by Julia Donaldson. We made the characters and their habitats.

Then we used the map to make the farmyard.

Finally, we chose suitable musical instruments and used them to retell the story.

This week we explored the prayer spaces.

We worked together to make dens indoors and outdoors.

We designed 'mini beast'' food and then enjoyed a healthy picnic.

On Friday we had a great time using our senses to explore Clyne Gardens.

We found lots of creatures, we did some tree rubbing and then we used natural materials to make sculptures of the creatures.

We also had great fun making dens.

We had fun working together to make a garden for the bees to visit.

We have been learning about Mary Jones and how she walked 25 miles to buy her very own Bible. Then we showed her journey to Bala.

We made a non-fiction book about mini beasts. You can find information in the book by looking at the contents page.

We have achieved 100% attendance again! Da iawn pawb!

Another busy week researching mini beasts and making our own non-fiction books.

Our new half term topic is Mini-Beasts. We all thought of a question.

Then we started to find out the answers. This week we researched spiders.

On Friday we had a visit from a poet called Kate. She gave us lots of ideas and then we wrote our own peoms about the sea.

Pasg Hapus. Amazing Easter crafts. Well done everyone.

Yum Yum

We have been learning about Palm Sunday through story, song, role-play and creative design.

This week we practised throwing and catching a ball.

Ask us to tell you the story of The Lion and the Mouse.



Last week we were busy preparing for our Christingle service.

We hope you enjoyed our percussion accompaniment to 'This Little Light of Mine'.

Some proud winners of our Eisteddfod

Amazing singing about Dewi Sant.

World Book Day was fun as we dressed up as a favourite character.

We drew our favourite characters and wrote a story.

Then we read our stories to the class.
