Year 1 have had a lovely time learning how to sketch this afternoon. We have looked closely at illustrations in Aaron Becker's book 'Return' and have tried to copy some of them. The children tried hard to add lots of detail, making their illustrations as interesting as possible.
Year 1 Spring Term Homework. How many Do-Jo's will you be able to earn?
What a great day we all had at Chester Zoo!
Year 1 have been designing 'Sustainable Palm Oil' posters and identifying all the food that contains 'good palm oil.' Some of the posters are fantastic and can be seen in our class floor book too.
Year 1 thoroughly enjoyed their bagels this morning. It was the start of our 'Free Breakfast Bagels' for all children at Linacre. We all have a full stomach and we are now ready for our daily learning - and challenges!
Year One Science. We have been planting cress seeds today and we plan to watch and observe as they grow, filling in our 'seed diary' to show what we discover. The children know that for their seeds to grow well they will need lots of sunlight and water. After lots of discussion we decided to keep them on the window ledge rather than in a dark cupboard!
Science. Year 1 have been learning all about flowers and have looked closely at different types. The children can name the four main parts. Look at how well we have labelled the roots, the stems, the leaves and the petals.
Chester Zoo Project. Year 1 began our Chester Zoo Project today. We all had a fabulous time learning all about the rainforest and palm oil. The children will be able to tell you all about the different types of food containing palm oil.

Year 1 and 2 Christmas Party
This term we will be reading books by the author Oliver Jeffers and reading the novel Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl.
During Green Week Year 1 thought carefully about how we recycle different materials and how we need to use the correct bins. We read a story about the adventures of a plastic bottle and how it was recycled and reused as something else.
Year 1 were lucky enough to have a Spanish lesson. We sang songs in Spanish and learnt some colours and numbers. We enjoyed fishing for the correct colour and splatting colours too. We can also say 'hello' and 'goodbye' in spanish.
Jeans for Genes Day
Year 1 have learnt all about Max, a special little boy with a genetic disorder. We talked about how his genes made him different - Max didn't have much hair, he could not sweat and didn't have any teeth.

Year 1 enjoyed sharing and playing some of our new games, to help us learn our alphabet and sounds and to develop our basic number skills.
Some of Year 1 represented our school at an Athletics Competition on Tuesday 6th November. We all had a great time and took part with fantastic team spirit. The children were extremely good ambassadors for Linacre and were a pleasure to take. Well done, Year 1!
Year 1 became doctors this morning and had to make 'unwell sentences' better again. We had lots of fun spotting the errors and then correcting them. We will be doing lots more of this throughout the week.
Year 1 were very lucky to have trainee teachers from Edge Hill University come into class and share some lovely stories with them, this afternoon. We listened to the stories and completed some follow up activities.
Thank you, Edge Hill University!
Year 1 thoroughly enjoyed our afternoon at Bootle Library on Wednesday 5th December. The children shared books with adults and enjoyed this experience. We hope to be able to visit again in the new year. Thanks for having us, Bootle Library!
