Year 1 WOW day – January

On Tuesday 14th January Year One had their Space WOW day! They came in dressed as astro-nauts and aliens and were ready to learn lots of space facts as well as take part in various space activities!
We started the day by listening to space music and learning lots of space facts. We found out what astronauts eat and drink, how they communicate with other astronauts and also how they go to the toilet! The children found this particularly amusing! Please feel free to quiz them on these facts!

We all painted planets and listened to a story about aliens who love underpants! We also made split pin astronauts, alien/astronaut passports and flying saucers! Later on we learnt about each of the planets and had a go at ordering them from the closest to the furthest from the sun.

The children had smiles on their faces all day long and as quoted by Oscar in Flame Class “This is the best day ever!” We had a fantastic day learning about Space!
Thank you so much to all of the Year One parents for the time and effort you put in to the children’s outfits, they really did look brilliant!

Year 1 WOW day – September

Last week year 1 had their first WOW day of the academic year! They came in dressed as police detectives and scientists and they were ready to investigate! We started off the day with our initial investigation…senses! We explored the five senses we have and why we need them. Children then explored these senses through different investigative activities.

We discussed the differences in people in our community too and how some may not have all of their senses, such as sight and hearing loss. We talked about what they might find difficult and how we can help. The children were fantastic investigators. We had a super day!
