Our topic for this half term in Year 1 is called 'By the Sea'. We thought it would be an amazing idea for us to visit the seaside to help us with our learning about the sea!
We left school at 9:30 and walked to Whitechapel station. From there we caught the tube to West Ham. Then we got a special train to Chalkwell Beach.
We had a fun time exploring the beach with our parents and we even had ice-cream!
We will be writing about our trip in English and using the shells and pebbles we collected in our science lessons.
For the Summer Fair this year, we needed to think of a triangle-shaped food to sell. We of course chose Andrew's favourite food: Pizza!
First we spread tomato passata all over our dough and then we put it into the oven for 5 minutes so that the dough and base would cook.
While it was in the oven, we cut up some mozzarella. After 5 minutes, we took out the pizza and put the cheese on top and cooked the pizza for a further 5 minutes. We then cut them into triangles and then... buon appetito! La pizza perfetta!
We hoped you enjoyed eating them at the Summer Fair!
For Maths Week, we decided to create Shape Aliens!
We used triangles (for the Festival of Triangles!), squares, circles and rectangles to make our aliens. We then reflected in our books by recording what shapes we used to make our amazing aliens.

Inspired by the Gigantic Turnip, we decided to plant and sow our own vegetables in Year 1! We chose to grow peas, as they are very nutritious and good for us!
We started by planting our seeds and giving them water. Over the half term holidays we all took our plants home to look after them during the break.
Keep an eye on this page to see how they've grown.
