Well done to all the children who raised lots of money for Children in Need.

The children came dressed in clothes from the 1980's. Some children came dressed as iconic figures and superheroes. Even ET made an appearance...

Do you recognise these children?

For International week, the children have been learning all about climate change and the impact it is having on the world, especially in the Arctic.

 

The children created posters explaining how we can help save the world from climate change.

Year 1 had their first trip of the year to Nell Bank. 

The children were given the opportunity to explore contrasting habitats and discover first-hand how animals use their senses to survive.

 

By the end of the visit the children were able to name all the woodland animals and describe where they live. They also learnt some science words such as herbivore, carnivore, omnivore and habitat. They could even name some of the creatures found in the pond during their pond dipping experience!

 

The children were an absolute credit to the school and behaved impeccably. Take a look at some of our fantastic photos!

The children played weasel and rabbit chase!

We have been learning all about hedgehogs.

The children have been researching and writing their own facts using leaflets and iPads. They have explored vocabulary such as, predator, nocturnal, hibernation, snout, protect, hunt, omnivore and scurry.

 

Whilst discussing what a predator was, the children practised protecting themselves by curling up into a ball and surrounding themselves in spikes, to deter the cheeky fox from eating them!

We also had a visit from a very sleepy hedgehog who got up to lots of mischief when the children were asleep in bed! We checked the CCTV in the quad!

I wonder what he will get up to during the holidays?

 

Autumn 1

Week ending Friday 20th October...

 

Story time in the book corner!

Black History Day

 

The whole school celebrated Black History Day on Monday 16th October.

Our inspirational person in Year 1 was Bessie Coleman. The children learnt lots of interesting facts about her and why she was so inspirational.

 

The children made Curtis Jenny planes using Mobilo. They took their own pictures using iPads and also recorded videos of their planes doing aerial tricks like those of which Bessie Coleman was famous for!

 

 

 

Week ending Friday 6th October...
Year 1 had a walk around the school grounds to find the different signs of Autumn.  We were using all our senses to see what we could find. Take a look...

Ready steady go!

 

Year 1 were learning about ordinal numbers. How did we do this? We had a race!

 

Week ending Friday 29th September...

The children created some fantastic observational drawings of apples using pastels. The children carefully observed the apples, paying attention to detail. They blended the colours with their fingers to create their desired effect. 

 

The apples were provided by one of the children who had grown them in their very own orchard!

Week ending Friday 22nd September...

 

The children have been busy practising their cursive handwriting.

One of the children brought in some delicious apples from their allotment. Before we sampled the juicy apples, we decided to use soft pastels and create observational drawings. Look at our super work...
The children have created their very own self portraits using paints. They carefully selected their skin tone colour and used a range of paint brushes to create their desired effect.

Friday 15th September...

The children had lots of fun on our trim trail this week. The sunshine even popped out to say hello!

We have been learning all about numbers this week. The children have been practising reading and matching number names to their numerals and practising their number formation. They have been using the learning walls and maths resources in the classroom to help them form numbers correctly. Especially those tricky number 4's, 7's and 9's! Keep practising!

 

We have also been using our reasoning skills to explain about sorting a variety of objects. This generated lots of fantastic reasoning between the children. We also talked about why we sort objects and what might happen if we didn't.

 

The children have been busy making skeletons for our classroom display.They used a variety of media to create their skeletons.

The children have been enjoying their new books in Year 1.

The children have settled well in their new classroom. They have been busy playing in the hospital role play area, reading stories in the cosy reading area, solving 2D shape problems, completing jigsaws and practising number and letter formation. 

They have particularly impressed their teacher with their team effort at tidying up!

The children were very proud to welcome the attendance trophy into their new classroom.
