Despite the stormy skies and soggy weather over the last few weeks, Year 1 have really enjoyed looking at different ways to create art.
We have used sticks, stones, leaves, twigs and a lot of teamwork to make pictures using 2D shapes, write words, make our initials and even measure parts of our bodies!
We finally got some sunshine last week and we had a lovely time comparing the size of our feet, hands and whole bodies using sticks and stones to measure. We found that our estimates of how many stones we would need was a tricky thing to get right. We also found the difference in size by using some clever maths skills.
“Me and my partner have the same size feet – we needed 12 stones” – Ryan and Mariana 1B
“My foot was 2 stones bigger than my partner” – Isla 1B
1B have learned some valuable lessons about how important it is to care for our environment and take care of natural things with our ‘no pick no lick’ rule, and they have used fallen leaves to sew together beautiful leaf strings.
Watch this space to see how we can transform the garden…
