Powerful emotions

This morning in Year 1, we have looked at powerful emotions and how we handle these emotions. We spoke about a time when we felt a powerful emotion. We also learned about ‘the beast’ that causes these emotions and we drew pictures of what we thought the beast might look like for different emotions. 

Happy Holi

We learned about the Indian festival of Holi last week. We watched videos of people celebrating Holi by throwing coloured powders at each other in the streets so we decided to create our own Holi pictures. We chose bright coloured paints to spray onto an outline of a person. It got a little messy!! 

   
    
    
    
    
    
    
 

Arrrrrghhhhhhh!!!

Captain Black left treasure for Year 1 to find. They had to work out clues to find where the treasure was hidden. Luckily, they were able to work out where the treasure was hidden and they were rewarded with a gold bar!! They had to sneak past other classes so they wouldn’t pinch our jewels and we even had to walk the plank! Captain Black even hid treasure in our classroom without us knowing. 

   
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    

    
    
    
   

St Fagans

  Year 1 had a fantastic time in St Fagans! We explored houses from different decades and identified the differences between our houses now and their houses. Beti Bwt was so glad that we were there to help her wash her Grandma’s bloomers!! We used the old fashioned equipment to help with the washing and it made the bloomers sparkling clean.
