Remote Learning with Year 1

Year 1 have been top remote learners this week, throwing themselves into learning from home. The children have completed challenges that have continued the topic ‘Amazing Africa’ including reading the story of ‘Bringing the rain to Kapiti Plain’, predicting through drawings, emotion journeys, followed instructions to make a rain stick and they have produced their own instructions to make a bow and arrow or a rain dance. Maths learning has been focused on weight and the children have completed a range of practical activities including cooking. They were challenged to independently weigh out each ingredient and the results have been rather impressive as there has been cookies, cakes, flapjacks and even pasta.
