Year 1 Letters
With our topic of air,land and sea, we have tried to create our own version of Lowry's painting called "Yachts 1959"- haven't we done a brilliant job!
Miss Thomas was very surprised when she arrived at school the next morning to find twelve tiny chicks all hatched and living in the incubator. By the time school started at 8.35, we had thirteen chicks which were then moved into brooder boxes in both Miss Thomas' and Ms Nuccoll's class rooms. Over the next week, we watched our thirteen chicks grow, fed them and gave them water. During this time, we learned all about the structure of a chick and compared their structure to that of other animals. We also learned about the life cycle of a chicken - did you know a chick begins as an egg, hatches into a chick and then grows into a chicken to start the whole process again?
Overall, we all had lots of fun learning how to care for chicks, especially gently stroking and holding them, even if this did become increasingly difficult as the chicks began to grow their chicken feathers and started to flap their wings!
Shay, Adam, Kian and Finley have been constructing some amazing pyramid and desert animal models out of Lego. Can you guess what animal Kian has built? Clue: It has a hump, which we have learned stores fat, not water!
We talked about New Year resolutions and decided to make challenges for ourselves, to try to achieve by February half term. If we achieve our challenges then our magic carpets will fly!
