Allergy Awareness in Mrs Carson’s class.

Allergy Awareness in Mrs Carson’s class.

As part of Allergy Awareness Week, Year one we're thinking about what it means to have an allergy.

Pupils thought about nut allergy in particular.

Pupils now understand that nuts can make some people very unwell. We talked about school being a nut free zone as some pupils in school have an allergy to nuts.

We listed to a story "The Cookie" which highlighted the importance of checking labels to make sure that biscuits brought to school do not contain nuts.

Pupils drew a cookie to remind them about be mindful to check ingredients if they know someone with a nut allergy.

See the pictures below.

Mrs Carson’s class go for a Spring Walk

Mrs Carson's class took the opportunity to go for a Spring Walk today. 

Before the walk we recalled what we saw during our Autumn Walk and Winter Walk. 

Once outside we soon saw signs of Spring. We looked at and named the following flowers, daisies, daffodils and dandelions.

All pupils were very excited to spot some snails and a ladybird in one of the hedges. Not only had they nice juicy leaves to eat, they were also well sheltered in the bush.

Have a look at the photographs below.

Pupils in Mrs Carson's class participated in an outdoor maths session today.

Using a variety of resources Year One pupils carried out simple calculations. The pupils worked together to ensure that everyone set out the correct number of objects, counted them accurately and then recorded the answer. 

Well done to all in Mrs Carson's class.

 

Have a look at the pictures below.

Weighing in Mrs Carson’s class.

Year One pupils had lots of practical experience weighing objects using balance scales. 

Pupils weighed a variety of objects using multi link cubes as the non standard measuring unit. They counted the number of multi link cubes required to make the object balance. They then recorded their result.

All pupils enjoyed this practical session and all developed the skill of using the balance scales.

Well done Year One.

Have a look at the pictures below.
