Biscuit Bear!

In literacy we have been reading the story book Biscuit Bear, which we have all really enjoyed! On Friday Year 1 went on a local area walk and bought the ingredients to make our very own Biscuit Bears. Today we were lucky enough to be able to use the new cooking equipment to make our bears.   After decorating  tomorrow we will be writing our own set of instructions which people can follow to make their own biscuits.

                                   Here they are cooled and ready for icing tomorrow morning!

We had an awesome time icing our biscuits! 

We got extra sticky!

Local area walk

On Friday Year 1 took a walk up to Pickford Lane to have look at our nearest local amenities.

On the way we saw – the Post Office, Train station.
On Pickford Lane we saw a range of shops to cater for most everyday needs, like Browns the sweet shops, hair dressers, bakery, Fish and Chip Shop….

At the Co-op we popped in to buy some ingredients for the biscuits we are going to make next week. 

Keep a look out to see how it goes next week.  


This week in computing we watched a clip produced by children in a Greenwich school about staying safe when using computers and the internet. 

Safety Girl and Cyber Boy helped us to understand the importance of E-safety in school and at home. 

We know:
-   Think before you click. 
-   Don’t give out personal information about yourself or your family like: your name or address.
-   Always check with an adult first if you are unsure of what you are going to click on.

    We designed our own E-safety information pages.

Here we are watching the E-safety video.

Using the Laptops.

This week in Year 1, we have been learning about cinquain poems and have had a go at writing one ourselves. 

A cinquain poem is a verse of five lines that do not rhyme. 
The cinquain poem was created by Adelaide Crapsey.

These are some of our typed cinquain poems

Jobs Week!

This week was a special week as it was Jobs Week!

We were very lucky to have several visitors come in and tell us all about their jobs.

Our first visitor was Tash who is a nurse at Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children.

Tash told us all about what she has to do everyday at work and how she became a nurse.

Telling us about Florence Nightingale.

Look at all the things nurses have to do!

We got to practise different jobs a nurse has to do.

Tash modelling how to put a bandage on.

Look into my eyes!

Talking about germs!

Our second visitor was Emma, an education officer from the Charity Dogs Trust. We were even lucky enough to meet Luna, Emma's dog!

Emma taught us how to look after a dog properly. 

She also told us all about what happens at The Dogs Trust.

Luna was so well behaved!

She sat when she wanted a treat.

Sitting on a chair!

This is what we do if a dog comes up to us and we might feel scared.

You should always ask the owner if you are allowed to stroke their dog. Let them sniff you first!

Our third visitor was Mr Jeffries, a firefighter for the London Fire Brigade.

Mr Jeffries told us all about a firefighters role and all the things they have to do.

Showing us the helmet.

We got to try it on!

Taylor got to try on the gloves and Amelia tried on the jacket.

Wow! Those trousers and boots are huge!

Here is a video of Mr Jeffries teaching us what to do if we were to ever catch fire:

We were so inspired by our visitors that we decided to write a book about different jobs:

 Thank you to all our visitors. You've definitely made us think about what we would like to be when we grow up!
