Learning to fly high

Year 1 – Snowy Owls

 

Welcome to the Snowy Owls class - we are Year 1.

We are a motivated group of children who just love to learn. Our projects are always so much fun and we enjoy discovering more. We are independent and use our working walls to help us with our learning. We are kind and friendly and one of our favourite things to do is our Thrive activities - they are so much fun!

The Great Plant Hunters!

 

 

What The Children Will Be Learning

 

Following a letter from Mrs Osman, the children have been set the challenge to learn the names of trees and plants in the school grounds. The children will use this knowledge to make identification cards for the Little Owl children to use on their welly walks.
The children will learn about growing and caring for plants from seeds as well as identifying and caring for plants already in the environment.
They will apply their scientific knowledge to explore and observe the process of growing, recording and comparing findings.
Children will develop their observational pencil drawings and explore colour matching to create realistic pictures of flowers.
The outcome will be a welly walk with the Little Owl children using the children’s identification cards.

 

Learning Values

 

Spirituality

 

 

  •  The children will be given the opportunities to use the natural world to inspire them.
  •  The children will be given the opportunity to show curiosity and interest in living things.
  •  The children will be given the opportunity to enjoy peace and stillness.

 

Thinking

 

  • The children will seek meaning through reflecting on their experiences and feelings asking questions and challenging ideas.
  • The children will process information using a range of organisational tools.

 

What Can I Do At Home?

 

Ideas for home activities:
1. Collage - Go on a nature walk with an adult to collect natural objects in the environment. Using your collection, create a collage or take a photo-graph.
2. Find out about plants in your garden or local park. Draw a simple plan of where trees and other plants are located. Add drawings, photographs and labels of plants found.
3. Visit the local library to find some information books about growing. What new facts can you discover?
4. Try growing something simple such as cress or broad beans. What do you notice as the days pass?
Safety: Check with an adult before picking anything off the ground.

The Snowy Owls enjoyed planting their broad bean seeds this week! They all made a wish for their broad bean seed and are learning how to care for them and help them grow!
