We have been busy making our Christingle for our church service! We learnt all about the different parts and then enjoyed some of our sweeties!
The Christmas Elves have been busy over night in the Year 1 classroom! The children were super excited when they arrived this morning and discovered our classroom was full of glitter and sparkles! We watched CCTV that showed the Elves had been peeping through our window, dancing on our carpet and sprinkling magic dust over our Christmas tree! We then made some fantastic Christmas crafts which we cant wait bring home at Christmas time!
After our visitor Percy arrived at school with all his animals, we found some surprises they left for us around the school! It was our job to work out which animal made each mess by looking at if they were a herbivore, carnivore or omnivore. We were all super scientists and managed to figure out that the Polar bear left the mess in our room on Miss Kane’s chair!
We jumped right into our new book “One Snowy Night” and experienced what it would be like to be outside in the cold by walking through snow and jumping into icy water! We then warmed ourselves up by the fire and drank some hot chocolate, just in time to read our new story together.
What an exciting afternoon! We loved shopping for our toys! Then we came back to class and played with them. We had roller skates, soft toys, robots, hairdressers, trains, cars, magic wands, paints and more! Thank you to everyone who donated toys for today and for sending in some money for your children.
In DT we have been designing and making a sleigh to gift at Christmas. The children came up with fantastic ideas of how to decorate their sleigh. We then started painting the, while listening to Christmas music! We can’t wait to start fixing them together!
Year 1 went on a lovely walk as part of our new Geography topic. We set off with our clipboards in hand to find physical features in our local area. We managed to check off all the things we were looking for including hills, cliffs, fields, sky and sea. We then discussed what we found and drew pictures of things we seen on our walk once back to class. We were super well behaved and had a fab time.
We have started our new topic around animals. We became scientists and looked at different habitats. Then we decided to make a bug hotel! Lots of us enjoyed finding bugs and we were very brave! We found spiders, snails, woodlouse and worms!
We have been learning all about Autumn in Year 1. Today we went on a leaf hunt in our playground and then discussed all the different colour leaves we could see. We then used our leaves to print lovely tree pictures using the colours we identified. We did so well making our Autumn pictures.
Year 1 and Year 3 loved walking to the Cornthwaite park for their sponsored walk. They walked extremely sensibly along the road and loved having fun, playing with their friends in the play park. What a lovely afternoon!
