Teddy Bear’s Picnic

To finish off our ‘Food’ topic we celebrated with a Teddy Bear’s picnic. We made labels for our teddy’s and made teddy bear sandwiches to eat at our picnic.

Fantastic team work

Today the Giraffes thought of adjectives to describe the animals from the story Handa’s Surprise. Each team had a talking stick to ensure that they all had a turn to talk.

African mask making

We have been learning all about hot and cold countries in Year 1.  This week the focus was Kenya.  We looked at the life of a young girl in a Kenyan village and discussed the similarities and differences between her life and our own.  Then we looked at African masks and designed our very own.

This week we created a poster on Pic Collage using the iPads.  The aim of our poster was to advertise all of the fantastic facilities we have in the playground at Bowker Vale.  The children really enjoyed taking their own pictures of the Vale Trail, the playground, the astroturf and then manipulating the images on Pic Collage, adding their own backgrounds, text and stickers!
