Being an artist like Andy Goldsworthy 2nd July 2021 - Today in Year 1 we were artists and we created collages using templates of different minibeast we learnt about in our learning about Animals and Humans - Science. We used our environment and nature all around us to create this, with grass, flowers, leaves, sticks and seeds. Here are some of our amazing work!
World Music Day - 21st June 2021 To celebrate World Music Day at Northlands, Year 1 have been looking at music from North America and in particular Mexico(language - Spanish) and Jamaica. We have explored instruments like the violin, maracas, drums and the Yukele, we have so much fun in our wonderful, relaxing Yoga lesson. Here is a sample of some of our fun activities like a game of - 'Guess my instrument!'
This summer in Year 1, we have been working hard learning about 'Animals including Humans'. We learnt about our body and its parts, we also learnt about the 5 senses and discovered what parts of the body help us use our sense of sight, smell, taste, hearing and touch. In the half-term holiday our science project was to, 'Make a sensory board or box, or a sensory bottle' to explore and observe in our science lesson, using our senses. Here are some of our amazing creations, we can't wait to begin investigating by touching, sniffing, listening and looking but no tasting!
Investigating, exploring and describing using our star words to describe what it feels, looks, sounds and smells like
Amazing Rocket - blast off!
Today (25th May) we had a guest speaker in Year 1 class, he is in Year 1 and keen to share his project from home. Here are some questions he was asked and his answers too.
Evan: How did you add some colour to your rocket? did you draw and colour in?
Faustas: The colour bit is the USA symbol (flag). Actually it was easy because it was a sticker!
Oscar: How did you make the pointy bit at the top?
Faustas: I used the connector module and glued it to the parachute.
Jake: How did you make the body into the shape of a rocket?
Faustas: The parts came in cylinder bits like and I connected together by twisting.
We were very proud of Faustas and his rocket project, looks like he is ready to learn about 'Space' in Year 2. Well done Faustas!
Look out for a picture of his rocket coming soon!
