Class 1

Y1 loved their visit to Yorkshire Sculpture Park. We worked with an artist to create our own large scale sculptures. Here are a few photos of us enjoying our visit. Watch this space for our finished large scale artwork. We are budding artists in the making!
We have learnt about D Day and how we should respect the veterans of the war. Here Year 1 have written about the soldiers' bravery at the Normandy landings. They fought for our freedom and we thank them from the bottom of our hearts.
As part of our work on Structures and Sculptures this half term, we are looking at sculptures created by the artist Andy Goldsworthy. We used our school grounds to create our own artwork using natural materials.
We looked carefully at plants and different fruit and vegetables grown around the world. We looked at the shape and colour and tried to include this in our own art work. What talented artists we have in Year 1!
We have been working on practical investigation skills for our division this week. We had great fun sharing objects equally. We even had a go at some division calculations!
Take a look at some of our wonderful work from this term based on our topic All around the world. We are great learners in class 1 and our knowledge of places around the world is really flourishing.

As part of our work in school on kindness, we created our own posters about our school values and “The Ashwood Way”. What great manners we have at Ashwood!

Year 1 are learning to use an atlas to find different countries in the world. We looked at different animals which lived in these countries. One of our favourite animals is the koala bear who lives in 🇦🇺 Australia.
Our science bloggers this week are Ava and Freya. We have found about parts of the plant and parts of flowers. Some plants daffodils and amaryllis grow from a bulb. Some plants grow from a seed.
