Snow Day research homework

 

Next week is Laudato Si week. We will be learning about climate change. Spend some time researching climate change and global warming. What is climate change? What causes it and what are the effects? Who is most affected by climate change around the world?

 

Create a colourful poster explaining climate change that you can share with your class next week.

 

Here are some useful websites;

Do you think we enjoyed our school trip to the Science Museum to watch a show about 'Forces and Magnets'?

Try this experiment at home with the following;
3 plastic wine glasses - fill 3/4s with water
1 placemat
3 vitamin tubes or similar
3 eggs (best to practice with hard boiled eggs or similar sized balls e.g. golf/ping pong balls, until you are confident enough to use raw eggs!)

GOOD LUCK!

It's Anti Bullying Week and we've been talking about online bullying. We read a really interesting story about Zeb, here is a little snippet; 

 

Zeb was born on the planet Dee. He was a Dee-lite. Dee was a bit like Earth apart from 2 things. Everything there was made of plasticine (including the people) and all the Dee-lites were completely blue. However, Zeb was different. He was blue but had a bright red nose! No one else in his family or street looked like this. As he grew older, he noticed that people would stare at him when he was walking down the road, point, laugh and say rude things...

 

We discussed this story in detail and shared our thoughts. By the end of the lesson we had come up with some really important slogans to help everyone feel loved and accepted.

 

"We are all special and we must be kind to each other. We are all unique"

- Jedrey & Ciaran.

"It doesn't matter what you look like, you are still special" - Zac & Anthony.

"Everyone has a talent and we are all special" - Kilian & Archie.

"Treat people how you would like to be treated, we can all be different things"

- Erica & Cara.

"It's not what you look like on the outside that matters, it is what is inside you" 

- Scarlett & Nancy.

We've been learning all about World War 1 this week. During Art, we used red and black crepe paper to make the Poppies, and then mixed yellow and blue paint to create wonderful shades of green for the stems.

Just like a Roman lyrics

Just like a Roman

We are learning this song for our Year 3 assembly!
Welcome to Year 3!

Lots of little Beings with a personality,

Each a little different and a little like me.

Lots of little Beings like stars in the sky,

Each one has a different little twinkle in its' eye.

Lots of little Beings like leaves on a tree,

Hanging all together in a Being family.

Lots of little Beings like peas in a pod,

Being all together, being loved by God.

2015 - 2016 ARCHIVE

 

 

Every morning we start working straight away! There is always a challenge for us on the board. This is a "warm up" for the rest of the day! In one of these challenges we had to find out which was the odd one out and write the reason why. Now that we are in Year 1 we are able to write full sentences! 

International Week

 

Year 1 have been learning about the Philippines during International Week. We learnt about the flag, national costumes, national dishes, popular sports and other information about animals and wildlife.

We dressed up in traditional Filipino costumes and even made a popular 'merienda' (snack) called Turon.

We hope you enjoy looking at our photographs!

Laudato Si'

 

Last week we learnt about Pope Francis' encyclical, Laudato Si. In his letter, Pope Francis urged us all to do our part in caring for our 'Common Home'. Our mission in Year 1 was to help highlight the importance of saving the rainforests in our world. Deforestation is ruining God's creation and we pledge to help put an end to it! We designed 'Rainforest Wind Up Wonders' so that we always remember that the rainforest is home to many beautiful animals, plants and tribes.

 

St Francis' Canticle is what inspired Pope Francis to write Laudato Si. The canticle is full of imagery related to the creation of the earth. Year 1 created some artwork based on St Francis' Canticle using press printing. They were very colourful!

The Mad Hatter's Tea Party

 

We were very busy in the last weeks preparing our Tea Party in Kite Studios and this morning we baked the delicious jam tarts with Etain!

We had lots of fun in our Tea Party! Thank you all for coming!
