It was lovely to see so many parents at the virtual 'Meet the teacher' on zoom. I have attached the powerpoint presentation below, for those that weren't able to attend.  

Q1 - The Body 

We have started a really fabulous term, learning all about the body. We began our topic with our sparkling start, where the children experienced a 'Human Body Workshop' run by Freshwater Theatre Company. Below are some pictures from the workshop, where they learned how to keep their bodies healthy. The children enjoyed playing lots of fun games to learn the parts of the body. 

We have been doing lots of learning outside the classroom, below are some photos of one particular lesson. 

Here the children drew and labelled the parts of the body. 

Q2- Arctic Explorers 

This quarter is all about Arctic Explorers. 

We started our topic with a visit from an actual Arctic Explorer. We had such a fantastic morning and learnt lots of new things, here's some photos for you to browse through....

The workshop started with a powerpoint presentation that included photos and videos of Adrian's time in the Arctic. We then had a look through his bag to see what an Arctic explorer needs to survive. 

After break time we went outside and learnt all about compass directions and how to use a map. 

The children then had to find small flags hidden around the playground using their map skills they had just learnt! 

We all had such a great day and I think we have some young explorers in our mix! 

Check out class ones Christmas song they learnt last week.

Merry Christmas to all the parents of class one, have a lovely time! 

Q3- Plants 

The third quarter is off to a very exciting start! 
We are delving into the world of plants! 

This is our class plant, which the children have been looking after and I'm excited to add the children at home onto the plant rota! 

We also began our topic by growing and observing the growth of a bean. Year 1 have found it really interesting that some have grown and some haven't. We will continue to monitor our beans over the next few weeks and see which one grows the most! 

In music this quarter Mrs Surguy has been teaching the children some songs inspired by the story 'Jack and the Beanstalk' here is their working in progress performance, we hope you enjoy :)

Phonics Easter Egg Hunt

This morning the children had fun running around the playground to find the eggs and words containing the different sounds we have learnt in year 1. They all did really well and most managed to find and write down the 16 words. 

Have a lovely Easter everyone! 

Q3- Transport 

 This quarter we have been learning all about transport. 
We kick started the topic by visiting Colne Valley Railway. 
The children had an amazing day, exploring the railway and learning all about the workings of a train. 

Photo coming soon! 

This week we are reading and writing 'The Train Ride' by June Crebbin. 

The children will begin by going on their very own imaginary train ride with Miss Pavely as the train driver! 
As we go along on our train journey we will gradually build up some brilliant WOW words to use in our writing! 


(Photo coming soon! 

Next week we will be designing and building our own toy car out of pringle pots!
