Fantastic Science Homework

Year 1 children have been looking at the different season in their Science lessons and have created some lovely seasonal posters for their homework.  Well done.

Splendid Skies

Year one students took to the skies last Tuesday to learn about wind! They showcased their kite flying skills to look at the direction of the wind as well as conditions which make great kite flying. As part of our topic children also looked at a wind sock which shows the direction of the wind as well as how windy it is. They discussed the Beaufort scale used to measure the strength of the wind and its direction. As part of the science curriculum children have discussed which material would be best for making their own kite. There were smiles all round as each child had a turn at flying a kite.

1SA Season Reports

1SA topic this term has been Splendid skies. As part of English children have been writing non fiction sentences to create a weather report.
They had great fun recording each other become weather news reporters!

Year 1’s Glorious Sky’s

Year 1 have fully immersed themselves into their new theme glorious skys. This week each class has gone on a trip to Lady Herbets Garden to see what beautiful flowers they could find.

Year 1 Learning About Healthy Eating

Year 1 have been learning all about where food comes from and how we can eat healthy. The children had a visit from Subway today and were shown how to make a super healthy sandwich that had lots of vegetables in it to give them plenty of vitamins.

1ST’s Musical Extravaganza

Class 1ST displayed a colourful and energetic ‘Spring Celebrations’ assembly last Thursday morning. The eager audience were delightfully taken on a whirl wind tour of celebrations from around the world. All as a result of hard working children the audience were taken to Thailand to learn about Songkran, India to watch a colourful Holi dance, Gloucestershire, England to witness a cheese rolling event, Bulgaria to see the lovely Martenitsas hanging on a blossom tree to celebrate Baba Marta Day and an Easter song –Hot Cross Buns. There were songs, a dance and musical talents displayed on the chime bars. A lovely way to see in the Easter holidays. Well done to all the children for all their hard work they have earned a well-deserved rest!
