The children in Year 1 have been learning about capacity this week They have been reading and measuring ml and l. On Wednesday we all participated in a water run challenge. The children had to decide which container would be best to transport water, using their knowledge of capacity. They thought about the size, surface area and how much the container could hold. Everyone had great fun including Miss Burke and Miss Novell.
Today we have been producing African sounds. The children have impressed us by their skills on the djembe drums and joining in with tribal songs. What a musical day!
Here’s our Eco Rap that we performed in assembly today accompanied by our instruments!
Saving our planet is really cool,
You should start by walking to school.
Reduce, Recycle, re-use,
It’s always in the news!
It’s not hard to recycle card.
Bottles, paper, jars and cans,
Leave them out for the recycling vans.
Eco week is really neat,
Let’s all join the ECO BEAT!
This week we have been using the ipads to film. We created a set of rules for making a good recording and then practised filming our friends. The children have also been learning to tell the time and enjoyed watching a short film to inspire creative writing.
Next week is Eco Week! If you have any spare newspapers, we need them! Please bring them to school by Tuesday.
