Spring 2

Science - We know how to plant seeds!

Year 1 were able to bring out their green fingers out to plant a seed! A bean in fact! 

First, you need to make sure you have the correct equipment.


You will need:

  • pots
  • soil
  • water
  • seeds

Then we followed these four steps:

1. Firstly, put some soil in your pot.

2. Next, plant your seed inside the soil.

3. After, cover the seed with soil and water it.

(Don't put too much water!)

4. Finally, put your pot somewhere warm and sunny.

RE - We reinacted the scene of Palm Sunday.

Ms Morales read to us the story of Palm Sunday, where Jesus sent his two disciples to go and fetch him a donkey so that he could travel into Jerusalem. He explained to them where they would find it and to let the owners know that he will return it back. 


Word got around and when Jesus arrived, he was greeted with so many people cheering for him. they laid their coats on the floor so that the donkey could walk across. They also waved palm branches as they exclaimed:  “Hosanna! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!”.


It was a celebration, because people knew that Jesus was coming to rescue them from their sins.

Maths - We can build number lines!

Here are a few pictures of Year 1 estimating if they can mark numbers 0 to 20 on a number line. Ms Morales used masking tape and asked us to use our imagination to guess where the numbers go on the number line. We first found the middle to find 10. From there we could work out where is 5 and 15. It got much easier to complete the more we placed more numbers.

We worked together as a class as we guided one another to place each number down.
