The Very Hungry Caterpillar

Published Thursday, September 22, 2011.
Last updated: Thursday, September 22, 2011

The children of 1S were challenged by ERIC to see if they could retell the Eric Carle story of "The Very Hungry Caterpillar". They had to use actions and "Kung-Fu" punctuation as well! Watch the video that we took and see if you think they managed to be successful.

1S Meeting Matt Mills

Published Wednesday, September 21, 2011.
Last updated: Thursday, September 22, 2011
Last week, on one of his walk through visits, Mr. Mills visited Year 1 and dropped in to see 1S. During the chat we realised that the children did not know where he worked - so Mr. Mills invited us for a visit. This morning, the children walked over to the Thai Sala, where the Headmaster and the Thai Headmistress have their offices and were given a personal guided tour of where he works. They met Khun Bhoom, his wonderful Secretary, and were even able to sit in his very own desk chair! The children were all very excited and asked lots of questions during their time with him and thoroughly enjoyed being the first class to visit Mr. Mills in his official school residence!

Hi 1S, I loved having you come and visit my office and you got to see the famous Princess tree.

Come and visit again!

Making Imaginary Worlds by Following Instructions

Published Wednesday, September 21, 2011.
Last updated: Wednesday, September 21, 2011

The children were given the Learning Question (LQ) "Can you follow some instructions to make an imaginary world to play with?" They chose the type of 'world' they wanted to construct and then took the instructions for it. Working as a team, they sorted out who was going to do what and how their 'world' was going to be made ... it was wonderful to see and the finished settings were amazing. :)

Great job and very good team work to all \^__^/

I am looking to do a similar thing with my Year 6 class and I came across your worlds. They are fantastic and I shall be showing them to the Year 6 children at Warminster Prep School in Wiltshire, England.

Height Ordering

Published Friday, September 16, 2011.
Last updated: Friday, September 16, 2011

As a part of their mathematical learning, the children were asked the Learning Question (LQ) ... "In a small group, can you put yourselves into height order? Can you then use the special maths words to label each person?"

The special maths words were, tallest, taller than, shorter than and shortest.

They had to work independently to work out who was the tallest and the shortest in their group and then put everyone into the correct height order. Once this was done they had to label each other ... they did really well! :)


Comment By Shalean (Nicholas's mum) 

Very well done 1S!

Senses Poetry

Published Friday, September 16, 2011.
Last updated: Friday, September 16, 2011

The children have been focussing on their senses for the past couple of weeks and have been on walks around the school as well as sampling the delights of smelling, tasting and feeling investigations! This week we asked them the Learning Question (LQ) ... "Can you use your knowledge of what you have seen on your sight walk to help us write a class poem together?"

To help the children with this we used a poem called "The Sight Catcher" which we read together. Using the structure of this poem, and borrowing the beginning and ending of the original, we worked together as a class to create our own 'masterpiece'! We hope you enjoy the children's version, which is called "The Sight Catcher". 

The Sight Catcher - by 1S.

 A stranger called this morning,

Dressed all in black and grey,

Put every sight into a bag

And carried them away:

 

The propeller of the fan blowing the wind around,

The beautiful and colourful flowers and trees,

The blue water of the swimming pool that is lovely and cool to swim in,

The yummy food in the canteen with signs and colours to help us choose,

Colourful birds flying high in the sky, landing in trees and on the ground,

Wooden tables to sit at, while you eat your delicious food.

 

A stranger called this morning,

He did not leave his name,

He left us no sights anywhere,

Life will never be the same.

1S Foot Spa!

Published Tuesday, September 13, 2011.
Last updated: Tuesday, September 13, 2011

The children enjoyed using their sense of touch today by putting their feet into a variety of things - feathers, cornflakes, porridge, beads, baked beans and macaroni!

They were asked to think carefully about some words that they would use to describe what they were touching and what it felt like; these are recorded in the table below:

The foot spa looks like a lot of fun :) Nicholas said I like the feathers & beads the most because it's not yucky! Very brave 1S!
