Chicks in KS1

Over the last two weeks KS1 have been learning about life cycles. They have been fortunate enough to watch chicks hatch from their eggs and learn how to look after them.

Judo with Eagles

Today had their taster session from ‘Destination Judo’.  They got to wear a judogi to try out all the new moves. They learnt safe ways to move on the mat and tried a few techniques with a partner.  A leaflet has been sent home in book bags for more information.

KS1 get very ‘Egg-cited’

Today we were lucky enough to have a visit from Deb, Silkie and Rock from ‘Eggucation’. She held a workshop for all children, explaining how to look after eggs and chicks once they have hatched. She has left behind an incubator with 16 eggs inside ready to start hatching on Wednesday.  Children will get to …

KS1 ENTRY POINT: The Great Fire of London

KS1 had a visit from Samuel Pepys this morning (all other adults brandishing cheese and wine were turned away, FYI). The children had a brilliant time learning all about the spectacular but tragic events of the fire that ravaged the city in 1666 before building their very own model of Pudding Lane… no prizes for …

Eagles Exit Point

To complete our structure topic, Eagles were designers and builders. Their challenge this time was to build a tower. They were given tooth picks, spaghetti, marshmallows and Midget Gems to use, but first they had to design their structure.  After they had built their structure, the children evaluated their work. They decided that using a …

Puffins become ‘Game Masters’ for Eagles and Skylarks

Puffins have been learning ‘how to lead’  as part of their PE sessions and wanted to test out their skills. Eagles and Skylarks were the perfect candidates! The children in Puffins split into groups and created their own game/activity, specifically tailored for KS1 children. They had to decide which equipment to use, the set-up and …

Paper Structures

The children were challenged to work as a team to build a structure. Their structure needed to stand and be able to balance objects on the top. I was really impressed with how the children worked and supported each other.

Investigating 2D and 3D Shapes

As part of our maths work, Eagles have been identifying and describing the properties of 2D and 3D shapes. They have completed lots of different activities to help them identify them and come up with ways to remember tricky spelling.

Eagle Class Entry Point-Structures

We  challenged the children to build their own structure out of cocktail sticks and marshmallows. The aim was to build the best – but what ‘the best’ means is open ended e.g. it might be the tallest, the biggest, the strongest.

Muddy Puddle Fashion 

Vivienne Westood, Coco Chanel, Marc Jacobs, Ralph Lauren (to name a few) are all people – as evidenced by a three shirt rotation and faded brogues – I do not know. On the fashion arrow of time, I find myself firmly in the menswear department of Next – too old to tolerate being called dude …

Key Stage One Nativity: The Inn-spectors

In early November, the Key Stage One team received a very special call… the inspectors were on their way! After scraping Miss Bell from the ceiling, convincing Mrs Gibson there isn’t a grade for cleanliness of Lego bricks and rescuing a weeping Mr Housden from his classroom cupboard, the team soon realised that this was …

Weaving in Eagles

In KS1 we have been learning to weave using paper. We used a card loom and the vertical slits became our warp. Paper strips were threaded horizontally and these were the weft. We threaded one piece of coloured paper over, under, over, under and the other coloured paper under, over, under over. This created our …

Eagles Entry Point-All Dressed Up

To start our new topic we transformed a piece of fabric using different joining techniques. We tried to make sure that on our fabric we had evidence of cutting, gluing, stapling, sticking, pinning and coiling. Can you see all the techniques?

KS1 Muddy Puddle Day

For our Muddy Puddle Day,  KS1 focused on the learning behaviour -Self Manager. The children worked on co-operation, taking and managing risks. They had the opportunity to complete a blindfolded obstacle course, a plank walking challenge, blind man’s buff game and toasted marshmallows. We were really impressed with the children’s attitudes towards the activities.

Eagles Exit Point-Kirkstall Abbey House

To conclude our topic ‘Hooray let’s go on Holiday’, we visited Kirkstall Abbey House Museum to learn more about seaside holidays. We had the opportunity to explore the museum, created a seaside donkey mask and took part in a workshop learning about seaside holidays in the past. We really enjoyed our trip.

Eagles Sand Sculptures

As part of our topic work we have created our own group sand sculptures. We used our hands to mould the sand in to a sea creature and used tools to add texture and detail. Have a look at our creations.

Harvest Festival in Key Stage One

Key Stage One have been rising to the challenge (yes, it’s going to be one of those posts) of baking bread in preparation for Harvest Festival this week. At yeast try to manage a rye smile through the forthcoming, awful (truly awful) puns. A toast to the children for producing such amazing results. Truly, second …
