Mrs Newlands and Miss Claxton
For coming second for having the best attendance last week, 1LN were chosen to meet a very special guest. Her name was Matilda the Book Bus, beautifully illustrated by Quentin Blake. Matilda was joined by David Gordon who delivered a very interesting assembly about the history of the ‘Book Buses’, and their journey to Africa, Asia and South America. She made a quick stop before departing to Malawi in Africa.
Can you guess what our topic is for Spring 2?
Here is a clue! Once upon a time...
Traditional and fairy tales! Year 1 will be sharing and reading their favourite traditional stories.
We have started our new topic with Rumpelstiltskin and the children have set themselves a challenge to see how many stories they can read before we break up for the Easter holidays!
We will also write our very own story using the features of a traditional tale and read them to the children in reception.
Our new topic this half term is Space! The children will be learning about the planets, stars and space travel. We will also be learning about the astronaut Neil Armstrong.
We will follow the current astronaut Tim Peake and his exciting journey into space, to the International Space Station.
It was 1LN's class assembly today. The theme was...trusting God with our future. We had a very full hall. It was so lovely to see so many parents and carers. :)
We talked about what we wanted to be when we grew up and even acted out some of those roles such as; an artist, hairdresser, teacher, nurse, head teacher and even astronauts! The children practised their lines, poems and songs. They enjoyed reciting the poem 'Now we are Six' by A.A. Milne.
1LN performed a wonderful assembly. We were all very proud! Well done.
Year 1 visits Bramley library...
We had such a lovely time at the library today. The Librarian was very friendly and even read 'Aliens Love Underpants' to us. She asked us lots of questions about books such as; What is a non-fiction book? What is a fiction book? Where can you find the blurb? What does an author do? What does an illustrator do? She was very impressed with all our answers!
We will be back again very soon!
1LN are the Attendance Champions!!!
The children were very excited and proud to collect the trophy this week! Well done!
