Cangen Year 1 - Mrs Shearman 2021-2022

We enjoyed learning some circus skills. They developed our hand eye coordination, dexterity, balance, resilience and listening skills and of course it was really good fun. 😊πŸŽͺ

The children collected data using tally charts, they then used the data to create bar charts.Finally they interpreted them to see which superhero was the most popular. πŸ¦ΈπŸΌβ€β™‚οΈπŸ¦ΈπŸ½β€β™€οΈπŸ¦ΈπŸ»

We thought of lots of ways that we are super. How are you super.

We had some special visitors from Pentre Farm. ❀️

We received an email from super villain Dr Ice🧊. He had frozen all of the superheroes! Luckily Dosbarth Cangen came to the rescue- they melted the ice and saved the day! πŸŽ‰πŸ¦ΈπŸ»β€β™‚οΈπŸ¦ΈπŸ½πŸ¦ΈπŸΌβ€β™€οΈ

We created our own superhero capes using alliteration.

Our topic this half term is Superheroes. Dosbarth Cangen have decided it is part of the ambitious and capable learners core purpose. Here are all the things they would like to find out. πŸ¦Έβ€β™‚οΈπŸ¦Ήβ€β™€οΈ

Our visit to The Radnorshire Museum. We saw lots of fascinating dinosaur bones, teeth and poo! We were able to hold them too. We also had a good look around the other exhibits . πŸ˜ŠπŸ¦–πŸ¦•

Dino Day! The children and staff dressed up as dinosaurs and palaeontologists. We had lots of fun - we even had a visit from three real palaeontologists who showed us lots of fascinating things. πŸ¦•πŸ¦–

We learnt about Volcanoes! πŸŒ‹

We had an online workshop with Liam from The National Welsh Museum. He showed us some dinosaur claws, teeth and poo! He read us a story and we enjoyed making the correct sounds.

Fresh air Friday.

Still life - sketching and shading fossils.

Using tools to carefully get the dinosaur bones out of the ice blocks.

We made some fossils using clay and dinosaur bones.

Enjoying our dinosaur areas.

We investigated coprolite (fossilised dinosaur poo) to find out what dinosaurs ate. We found green plants, seeds, nuts, egg shell, meat and bones.

Our Topic this term is Dinosaur Planet. The children have decided what they would like to find out and do.

We have had a great first term in year one. Our topics have been The Enchanted Woodland🌳 and Moon Zoom πŸͺ We’ve been artists, musicians, designers, readers, mathematicians and even made our own movie! We’ve developed our social skills and are becoming more independent with our learning. We record our work for our families to see on tapestry but here are a few example  pictures of what we’ve been up to. 😊

The Enchanted Woodland

Dosbarth Cangen have written a senses poem about an Enchanted Woodland. They thought about what they may hear, see, taste, feel and smell in an enchanted woodland. They are so proud of their poem. ☺️

Our beautiful catchers. We took them through our wishing willow to fill them with love, happiness and kindness.

We have used willow to make dream catchers, they also catch some of the magic in our enchanted forest and spread goodness.

What would you most like to see in an enchanted woodland? We have find finding out what our friends would like to see.

We have been learning about evergreen and deciduous trees. Our class decided we like deciduous trees the most because they look so pretty in the Autumn and the fallen leaves are fun to play with. We used an identification sheet to find out what trees we have in our wild area and then made some bark rubbings. πŸŒ³πŸƒπŸ‚πŸ

We have been measuring and comparing the circumference of tree trunks in our school grounds.

Sports day fun!
