What a jam-packed week we have had in year 1!
This week, in computing, we learnt about stop motion animation. The children really enjoyed using an app on the i-pads to create their own stop motion animation using different figures and vehicles. The children worked really well in their groups and ensured that everyone had a role - super team work year 1!
In gymnastics, the children continued to work with coach Becky on holding their different gymnastic shapes. They then also moved on to practicing their rolling skills focussing on teddy bear and forward rolls on the mats.
In DT we have started our new unit on mechanisms where the children will be building up to making a page from a 'moving book'. Last week, the children looked at examples of moving books and identified sliders, levers and wheels. This week the children practiced the skills that they will need to make a sliding mechanism. We were so impressed with how focussed the children were during this activity and can't wait to see their finished moving books!
Have a lovely weekend and enjoy the sunshine!
