Today year 1 worked hard in the garden. They had to clear the bedding area of the weeds using the spade. Then they planted some Sunflower and Jeepers Creepers seeds there. Another group of children filled two tyres with soil and added some young plants. They enjoyed investigating the parts of the plants, especially all of the roots squashed in to the bottom of the pot! Finally, a group of children planted some herb seeds to create a small herb garden. We are hoping to grow chives, basil, coriander and parsley.
Last week, Year 1 were upset and horrified by the amount of rubbish they saw in the area on the way up to church. They have decided that they wanted to clear up all of the rubbish in the park. They have written a letter to a local councillor asking if they can have gloves, bags and litter pickers to clear the rubbish.
We were very lucky to have Mrs Devaney visit us today. She has always lived in Nechells since her family moved over from Ireland, before she was born. She told us all about how they looked after the area and what they did to clear up together.
Today Year One used a child to measure the length of the classroom. It was interesting to realise we had to use the same child to make it a fair non-standard unit of measure. The classroom measured 10 and 1/3 DBs long.
We are learning how to measure using centimetres in maths with Miss Jones
What a fantastic way to start our day. Year 1 had their class Mass today and the children read and sang wonderfully. Father Solomon was very impressed!
Today Michelle came to visit us with her crocodile. She taught us how to clean our teeth.
- Don’t eat food with lots of sugar
- Clean your teeth twice a day
- Don’t clean your teeth straight after eating, wait for an hour
- Never share toothbrushes
- Clean with a toothbrush using circles
Today we had a visitor. Mrs Choppra-Morris came to tell us about what it is like to be a Hindu. We learnt lots about her faith and now really excited to go to the Temple tomorrow.
This week Year 1 are studying the Hindu faith. Today they have started to look at different Temples and how colourful they are. Here are some of their own designs.
Can you see the colourful domes they have put on the top?
