The Great Fire of London

Year One’s retelling of ‘The Great Fire of London’ was fantastic this morning! The children have worked so hard and have learnt so much during our History topic this half term. Well done everyone!

Have you seen the Big, Bad Wolf?

Year One are very concerned about the whereabouts of the Big, Bad Wolf. He was last spotted in our storytelling area, however there have been possible sightings throughout school and outside. Year One are currently looking for any clues as to where he could be hiding. If you find him, please let Year One know immediately.

Polar Express Day

Year One have had an excellent ‘Polar Express’ day to mark the end of our Christmas story. We all arrived at school in our pajamas and took a journey down the train track to our Polar Express classroom. In English we made reindeer dust and in maths we solved ‘Polar problems’. We then arrived back at our classroom after dinner to find a golden Polar Express ticket in each of our trays. We finished the afternoon by watching the film, whilst drinking chocolate milk and eating marshmallows. We have had a wonderful day!

Gift for Granny

Today saw the last collecting day for our GIFT FOR GRANNY appeal.

This was a new venture this year and one which I have been over whelmed by. As a community, our parents always support the school and every charity we ask, however despite this being a time of the years when so many other things are happening, we have had an outstanding reponse to this charity.

Tonight the gifts have been collected and I can only imagine how many lives the presents will brighten during this festive season.

Thanks you so much.

Our School Council help to pack the gifts.

Christingle Service

Today, the whole school made their way to Whitburn parish Church for a beautiful service to celebrate christingle. As always, the children were amazing. Our readers did a fantastic job and the choir were outstanding.

I know that lots of parents would have loved to attend but due to numbers we can only take the children. So, have a look at the photos and films below to see the children in action.

Toy Fair

Today the whole school enjoyed an amazing toy fair. Thank you to all of our parents for the fantastic contributions. Our children all enjoyed the ‘shopping’ experience and have taken home a range of new items for the house!

Profits are still being counted, but we will let you know as soon as we have a total.

Year One go back in time…

In Year One we have been learning all about ourselves and our own lives. Last week, we were very lucky as we had two special visitors come and talk to us. Tom and Nora, Lucy’s Great Grandparents, came to talk to us about how life has changed and how school was different in the past. The children were very shocked to find out that Tom and Nora did not play with iPad’s or computers! We asked lots of questions and our visitors told us lots of very interesting facts. We can’t wait to find out more!

 

Owl Babies

In Year One, we have been learning about the story ‘Owl Babies’ by Martin Waddell. We have been working very hard, writing our own stories, learning about owls and acting out the story in small groups. We even had a special visitor come into school to answer our questions about the story. We were very excited when ‘Mummy Owl’ came to talk to us!
