Just wanted to say a huge thank you for all the beautiful, thoughtful gifts. The badger picture will take pride of place in my study! I am sorry that I was not well enough to see you all and thank you personally.
Very best wishes to you all and have a lovely summer holiday.
Sports Day! 4th July.
On Tuesday 20th June, we went looking for animals of all shapes and sizes in the super habitats we have here in the school grounds.
Having fun at Birdworld.
We had a fantastic day at Birdworld today. The children all behaved very well and learnt a lot from the talk we had from a Birdworld specialist and from looking at the animals and birds we saw. I think penguins were the favourite of most of us and some of us were brave enough to touch a python as well as a chinchilla, a ferret and a tortoise. Thank you to the parents who came to help.
On Monday, the children had the story 'The Knight Who Wouldn't Fight' read to them . It is one of the books that we are looking at for the Hampshire Book Awards. Yesterday, they planned their own stories to read to the dragon in the story. The dragon loves listening to stories and it stops him from destroying villages. Today the children wrote their own stories and then practised reading them, before waiting patiently, (and they really did wait very patiently) to read them to the dragon. They were very excited about reading their own creations to the dragon.
The Knight Who Wouldn't Fight.
This week the children have really enjoyed their research on planets and, since they are now experts, they have followed this with some news reports.
Creating Alien Characters
Today we went on a word hunt to collect nouns and adjectives that we could use to describe an alien. We then matched them up in different ways to create our own alien characters.
Alien day, 11th January 2017.
Today all of Year 1 dressed up as something from space and took part in different activities which included playing in role play areas created by the children and teachers. They also made aliens out of boxes and craft materials. Here are some of the photos taken.
Making Jam Sandwiches
This term we are looking at buildings. To start the topic, we worked in groups using construction equipment to make our own buildings.
