Party Day!

Year 1H had a super party day on Friday! We had a very special visitor that had travelled from the North Pole with his reindeers…Can you guess who it was?
We enjoyed playing lots of party games in the hall and winning prizes! Then we ate some delicious party food and played more games in our class!

Christmas Decorations

We have been learning all about The Christmas Story in both year 1 classes this week. We have enjoyed taking part in role play to retell the story. We also made some beautiful decorations which show Mary, Joseph, Jesus and Angel Gabriel in the stable. Our classrooms were VERY glittery!

Science Investigation

In 1H we have been learning about materials this term. We got lots of different materials and tested them using a pipette of water. We then checked inside the different containers to see which of the materials had let water through and which hadn’t. Here are some pictures of us…

A New Scout Elf!

Year 1H were very excited when they came into school this morning and realised we have our very own Scout Elf! We have decided to name him Sparkles and last night he made himself a Christmas tree using our maths cubes!

We are all very excited to see what he will do throughout December and we are hoping he doesn’t get up to too much mischief.

An Arctic Adventure!

The children in 1L went on an Arctic Adventure in our amazing 4D room. We experienced the cold arctic winds and made an igloo to shelter in.dsc06554 dsc06556

dsc06559After we had finished building our igloo, we made cracked the ice so that we could make a hole to catch some fish.  Look who popped up to say hello from the freezing Arctic ocean!

We put our fish on the fire to cook and settled down to enjoy a story while we waited for it to cook.  The book was called: ‘The Great Explorer’ by Chris Judge.  We really enjoyed it. The main character is a boy called Tom who goes to rescue his dad who is lost in the North Pole. He had lots of exciting adventures and it gave us some good ideas for our own adventure stories.
