Welcome to Year 1
Our teachers are Mrs Jennings (Mon - Wed a.m.) and Mrs Kelsall (Wed p.m. - Fri)
We are helped by Mrs Hole and Ms Leigh.
Well today started off a little differently! We came into the classroom to discover a crime scene! Someone, or something, had been in our classroom in the night and had made a mess in the small world area! The scene had been sealed off by a detective but he was so busy he asked us to investigate. We collected some evidence and started to make some predictions. Later in the day we received an email from the 3 Little pigs to say they had been chased off by the Big Bad Wolf and they were very sorry they had left a mess! Thank goodness we solved the case!
We had a fantastic day out in the Lakes! We travelled on a bus, steam train and a boat as part of our Transport Topic. We even managed to fit in a trip to the Aquarium too! We had great fun and learned a lot too. Quite a few members of the public stopped to tell us how impressed they were with the behaviour of the class! Super proud of you Year 1! :)
If you are celebrating the Queen's Platinum Jubilee over the holidays, why not take a photograph and we can put it up in our classroom. Have lots of fun!
We have made a great start with our topic work all about Toys Past and Present. The children brought their own favourite toy into school and talked about why it is special, what it is made out of and how they enjoy playing with it. The photos say it all! What lovely smiles!
As part of our topic on seasonal change we have been investigating wind. We looked at what wind socks do and investigated the best type of material to use. We ranked them in order from best to worse and used the best material, tissue paper, to make our own wind socks. We enjoyed trying them out in the playground.
ALL ABOARD THE POLAR EXPRESS!
What a fabulous day we had in Year 1 today. We came dressed in our pjs and the Conductor stamped our tickets. We read the story, did lots of activities linked to the story and even designed and made our own Polar Express train. In the afternoon we changed into our slippers, cuddled up to our teddies, munched on some delicious popcorn and enjoyed watching the film. We finished our lovely day by sipping on some scrumptious hot chocolate just like the children in the film.
