On Monday we had a fantastic animal experience with ZooLab. They came in to talk to us about unusual pets and how we look after them! Year 1 were very brave and touched or held all of the pets!! They were much braver than Miss Lamb.


Busy Bees

Last week we had the opportunity to visit the beehive on the school roof. Steve took us up to see the hive and the bees and told us all about the process of making honey. Miss Lamb dressed up in the protective suit to take close-up pictures of the beehive. We’re hoping to have some children’s suits soon so that we can all see them up close!! 


Roald Dahl Day 

We had lots of fun in Year 1 dressing up as our favourite Roald Dahl characters to celebrate Roald Dahl’s 100th birthday. We coloured pictures of Roald Dahl characters, found out our Roald Dahl names, filled our own dream jars and invented our own chocolate bars! 


A Party with the Woodland Animals

We have been busy making bunting and paper chains (using repeating patterns) in preparation for our party with the woodland animals. We decided on a popcorn party and estimated how much popcorn we would need and how much squash we could drink. We made a shopping list for Mrs Thomas and made a map showing the animals how to get to our classroom from the playground.

At the party we played hide and seek, where the animals hid and we had to look for them and musical statues. Then we had our party tea and thought about what our woodland friends would enjoy for their food! After food we listened to Hansel and Gretel, a woodland story we had decided that our friends would like.

We had a lovely day and our woodland friends did too!

Friday Awards – What a lot of certificates!

Year 1 had lots of certificates given out at Friday’s assembly.

The star of the week was GA. Well done G. A lovely haiku written independently. We will add a selection of our poems next week.

We also had a super group of spelling aces who had 10/10 in their spelling test. LD, GA, AA, BH, OBJ – can you do it again next week?

Then another  great Golden award group who have gained 400 house points this year, GA, IB, OBJ, RA, TG, LD, AM, RM, BH – well done to you all! Keep earning those house points.

We also had quite a few children who had scored the highest house points from their houses throughout the primary for the week.

Lastly we have one pupil who has achieved the Platinum award which is 500 house points. Wow! Well done LD.
