Last Day of Term - Christmas Party Day - 17.12.20
Today we celebrated our last day in school before the Christmas Holidays. We all wore our finest party clothes and had such a great time chatting to our friends, eating delicious food and dancing our socks off.
Christmas Jumper Day - 11.12.20
Today we got to show off our wonderful Christmas jumpers.
Christmas Dinner Day - 09.12.20
Year 1 thoroughly enjoyed their Christmas dinner today. They finally got to wear their Christmas hats that they have worked so hard on. Thank you to all of the kitchen staff who made our delicious dinners.
Science - Working Scientifically - 03.12.20
Today we tested the houses we have been building in our science topic of 'Working Scientifically'. We saw that two of The Three Little Pigs struggled to build effective houses to keep them safe. We built our own after some testing and now it was time for the ultimate test. The big bad wolf was coming to try and blow our very own houses down. Some of our houses were successful and some of them weren't. However, we did learn lots about what characteristics make a good house.
Odd Sock Day - 20.11.20
Year 1 took part in Odd Socks Day as a part of Anti-Bullying Week to celebrate our differences We saw socks of all different colours and sizes and we thought that they were all amazing.
Our School Trip to CHET (Crosby Hall Educational Trust) - 18.11.20
Year 1 had a lovely time today on our school trip to Crosby Hall Educational Trust (CHET).
We took part in lots of exciting activities like the obstacle course to increase our confidence, resilience and self-esteem.
Then we tried our hand at making our pottery owls, improving our creativity, motor skills and sensory development.
Finally we went down to the woods to make a small campfire.
We toasted and ate our marshmallows whilst learning about fire safety and we were lucky enough to get some time to show our creativity through our environmental art, building our teamwork skills.
Thank you CHET for a wonderful day.
Science - Classifying and Grouping Animals - 12.11.20
Today we worked in table groups to work as a team to classify animals by different criteria. We are now experts and classifying animals. We can tell you all about reptiles, amphibians, mammals, birds and fish. We can also classify animals by their diets, habitats and characteristics.
Religious Education - Belonging: Baptism - 10.11.20
Today we continued with our topic of belonging, applying all of our prior learning into reenacting a baptism. Each person in our class has a role to play, from the parents and godparents to the priest. We discussed what we had learnt about the different things we could see that we had previously learnt about such as the white gown, the candle and the font.
Science - Testing our Senses - 09.11.20
Today we were discovering how our senses help us complete day to day activities. In order to do this we conducted experiments in which we would eliminate one of our senses and complete a task. We discussed how difficult some tasks can be without our sense and that we are all very lucky to have 5 working senses.
Kings and Queens - End of Topic Banquet - 06.11.20
We celebrated all of our learning about Kings and Queens by having an end of topic banquet.
Before our banquet we completed our coronation walk, we wore our crowns that had been beautifully decorated and waved our flags that we had painted ourselves. As our walk came to an end, we received a very special message inviting us to enter the dining hall to begin the banquet. Each King and Queen took a seat at their table and were served with delicious foods and incredible drink, fit for Kings and Queens.
