    Rainbow Fish Paper Plates

    Posted by Miss E Fitzgerald
    One of your tasks this week was to create 'Rainbow Fish' using a paper plate. I said that you could use paints, coloured pencils, felt tips or fabrics to create your fish. I know that the bubbles in school had a brilliant time making their fish and George has made his own King Fish. Well done to everyone for their brilliant efforts.

    How to be a good friend

    Posted by Miss E Fitzgerald
    This week we have used Rainbow Fish for inspiration. We have thought about how he is not a very good friend - at the start of the story - because he is selfish and unwilling to share his special shiny scales. Thankfully towards the end of the story he learns how to share and becomes a better friend. I asked you all to think of how to be a good friend, writing instructions to achieve this. I am so impressed with everyone's ideas. Year One definitely know how to be a good friend!

    Messy Maps

    Posted by Miss E Fitzgerald
    Amber has been busy making a messy map of her bedroom. She has used Duplo to recreate her room, thinking carefully about where the different bits of furniture are. She was lucky to have the help of both of her brothers in order to achieve her masterpiece. Brilliant work Amber, and to those who have taken on the Geography challenge for this week.

    Newspaper Report

    Posted by Miss E Fitzgerald
    This week our book we are focusing on is Barry The Fish With Fingers. In this story, Barry is a hero and saves his friend Puffy. To mark this momentous occasion, you were asked to write a newspaper report retelling the story of how Barry used his fingers to save Puffy. I have been blown away by the time and effort put into these! Lots of children have been using those adjectives that we have been using for weeks! Super work Year One.

    Sounds Coding

    Posted by Miss E Fitzgerald
    This week one of your challenges has been to code sound. Coding is something we have looked at a few times over the year and always proves tricky. If you don't code it right, then nothing can happen, and getting it right isn't easy! The boys in bubble 5 were very keen to take on the challenge this week and they all managed to independently code so that the sounds played at certain times. They even managed to correct code which was put in wrong. Well done to everyone who has tried!

    Pencil Measuring

    Posted by Miss E Fitzgerald
    One of your maths tasks this week was to do a bit of measuring. You were asked to measure things around you with pencils. This was so easy feet, as measuring the length of something which is longer than 2 pencils is tricky. Well done to everyone who had a go!
