On Monday Year 1 had to opportunity to take part in an incredible music workshop. The workshop was linked to what the children have been learning in their lessons this half term.
The children watched a brilliant performance in the hall and then completed the workshop in the classroom.
As you can see from the photos, they absolutely loved it!

School trip to Eureka

What a day!
Year 1 had an incredible time at Eureka today and thoroughly enjoyed it. 'The Gross Lab' workshop was fantastic, they learnt about all the disgusting things the body does. The children made fake sick, fake wounds and lots more. 🤢
We then explored the 'All about me' gallery where the children were able to explore the human body and the senses, linked to our science topic this half term.
As my first school trip as a class teacher, I am so proud of how well behaved and sensible Year 1 were today. Well done!

This afternoon Year 1 acted out the story from The Tiger Who Came to Tea. We made our own sandwiches, created tiger masks and made invitations. We all sat together on the carpet and ate our delicious snacks and juice while we retold the story.

Year 1 have had a fantastic week and completed some amazing work. This week we developed our science skills and looked at our sense of hearing. We went on a sound walk around school to see what we could hear.

smileyWelcome to Year 1!smiley

Welcome! I can’t believe how busy we have been in our first week back to Year 1! I have been so impressed and you have made me very proud already. 

Below I have outlined a few things which will help you along the way this year:

* PE lessons usually take place on Tuesday and Thursday. Please remember that your PE kit must be in school at all times in case these days change or we have another exciting activities planned. The indoor kit is as follows: White top and black shorts. Outdoor kit: Black tracksuit, white top and trainers.

* Practise your spellings at home each day. The spellings follow the patterns we are learning in class and really will enable your children to develop an embedded understanding of the spelling patterns. We follow a 'look, cover, write, check' method, which should help you at home. Spelling tests take place on a Thursday.

* Read at home every night and discuss what you have read in great detail (such as making predictions about what may happen next, discussing the characters and linking what has been read to own experiences).

* Come to school every day ready to learn! The doors open at 8.35am and registration begins at 8.45am.


I am so impressed with what you can do already and how clever, kind and determined you all are. Let’s learn and grow together this year and make sure we are shining like the superstars we are!
