Over the last two weeks the children have been learning all about the local area. Below there are a series of pictures that will showcase the learning that has taken place.
The children started with locating the 4 countires in the United Kingdom.
In lesson 2 the children found out that the 4 countries in the United Kingdom have capital cities and they also found out about the seas surrounding the UK.
In lesson 3 we looked at our local area and used Google Maps to help us to locate points of interest in our area.
In this lesson we looked at the land uses of areas. We found out some new vocabulary including public services, open spaces and economic. The children were able to organise piictures in a table under the correct headings.
In lesson 5 the children looked at physical and human features of land. They learnt that physical features are those that are natural and human features are either influenced or created by humans.
In lesson 6 we learnt about the seven continents of the world. We learnt that we live in Europe. We also found out that Asia is the largest continent and Australia is the smallest.
We listened to a song to help us to remember the names of the continents.
We have learnt so much information during the last two weeks and have enhoyed finding out about our country and our local area.

We had lots of dicussion during our first PSHE lesson. We are learning about relationships. In our first lesson we had lfun looking at and sorting a variety of images, we were then asked to use some new vocabulary during our discussions such as; 'likes', 'dislikes' and 'I prefer'. Throughout this lesson, we discovered that we do not all like or dislike the same things, but this is ok because these are the things that make us 'unique'
Exploring healthy and unhealthy foods: 3.11.20
The children were able to sort the images into healthy and unhealthy groups.
We have been learning about the importance of hand washing and keeping germs away.
We used glitter to represent germs and to see how quickly germs can spread around the classroom.

This week we have launched our brand new maths curriculum; Maths No Problem. The children have been learning different ways of counting, counting and ordering numbers in the ascending order, counting and ordering numbers in descending order and using objects to reflect this, they have recorded their learning in a JOURNAL! The journal is a book where the children can show how they have understood a concept by writing numbers and including their own versions of pictorial represtations for these. We have been learning through our numbers in a fun and active way and we have loved it!

WK BEG 9th November 2020
We have had the most amazing week learning about materials and conducting two investigations. We completed an ice experiment - we wanted to find out where in our classroom ice would melt the quickest. The children loved predicting what would happen, completing the experiment and then finding out what happened and also discussing whether our predictions were correct. We found out that the ice melted the quickest nearest the radiator and the ice that took the longest to melt was the ice cube that was placed outside the classroom door.
Our second experiment was to find out which material out of a selection would protect an egg if dropped from a height. The children were so excited to plan their experment and wrap their egg in a chosen material. We made predictions on which material would protect the egg fully and then we completed the experiment. The children were so excited and had a smashing (ha ha) time. The children were so intrigued to unwrap their eggs and to find out which material were able to fully protect the egg. We found out that 'bubble wrap' was tthe only material that protected the egg. All the other materials (cling film, bin bags, blu tac, fabric, foil and newspaper) did not protect the egg!

Well what a lovely first week we have had in 1JR. All children have been brought along with; big, happy smiles and a fantastic learning attitude. Every child has tried their absolute best. Well done 1JR!
This week we have launched our new science topic "Materials" and we went on a materials hunt around school. The children were excellent detectives and were able to find objects made from wood, plastic, metal, paper, fabric and brick. Please take a look at the photographs of the children on their material hunt.
WK BEG 14th September 2020
We had a great start to our week! We completed a science investigation on which materials were waterproof and windproof. We had great fun using a 'hairdryer' for the wind! The children found out that wood and metal were the most suitable to build a house for the third pig. Ask your child to explain what waterproof and windproof means.

We had more fun today finding out whether materials were transparent or opaque. We now understand that transparent means you can see through a material and that opaque means that you cannot see through an object. We found out that 'glass' would make a great material for windows because it is transparent. We also found out that 'wood' would be a good material for a door. We really enjoyed investigating and we were really sensible with all of the different materials.
3.11.20 - Where will ice melt the quickest in our classroom?
The children have really enjoyed investigating where ice will melt the quickest in our classroom. They decided on 4 different locations. We used timers and timed how long it took for the ice cube to turn into just liquid. We found out that heat does help ice to melt the quickest as the ice cube nearest to the radiator melted the fastest.

This week we have been learning all about Harvest and the communities we belong to. We found out that Harvest means 'freshly picked foods' and that we celebrate this in Autumn when the foods are collected.
Here are some photographs of our learning.
We have been learning about the 'Christmas story' and have role played and sequenced what happened in the correct order. We also talked about the 'bible' and how it is split into two parts.
We have also explored how Christmas is celebrated around the world by Christians and made comparisons between the UK and Australia.
