Road Safety Week , by Miss Gough-Hughes
Date: 20th Nov 2018 @ 7:34pm
Today, all of Year 1 spent time learning about road safety and why it’s incredibly important. The focus of road safety week this year is, bike safety and how to be safe on the road. Children in Year 1 watched a video to show them the important things to do when riding your bike, including: wearing a helmet to protect your head. As a result, we designed our very own bike helmet and discussed what material we would need to use to ensure it would be sturdy and would protect us. Some designs we completed are found below. Additionally, we conducted a mini experiment using eggs. Firstly, we dropped an egg into a bucket and observed it breaking due to the force and height it was dropped at. We then wrapped our egg in bubble wrap as a protective layer (just like a helmet) and observed how it didn’t smash this time. Children realised that the bubble wrap was just like a helmet for our heads and saw how important helmets are. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed learning about road safety and hope that the children can share what they have learnt with you. Well done Year 1 for learning the importance of road safety!

Chester Zoo , by Miss Gough-Hughes
Date: 9th Nov 2018 @ 2:18pm
Year 1 visited Chester Zoo this week. We had a fantastic time and found the whole experience very exciting. First, we got on a big coach, which was very comfortable to sit on. It took us around half an hour to get to the zoo but we did not mind as we spent time looking out of the window and spotting different sights. When we arrived at the zoo, we got a special sticker so that we could go in. In the morning, we all saw lots of different animals including: red pandas, lions, giraffes, owls, penguins, flamingoes, butterflies etc. We found that some animals were asleep and were not out in their inclosures but others were outside, enjoying the fresh air. We particularly enjoyed seeing the lions as the male lion came very close to the fence and even started to stratch his claws on the tree which made us laugh. After seeing lots of animals in the morning, we made our way to the Islands for our dinner. We chatted to our friends and enjoyed having a bit of a rest after lots of walking. We enjoyed having dinner but were even more excited to see different animals. All of a sudden, it started to rain really badly so we all had to walk quite fast to get under shelter. Some classes took cover in the bat cave and others went to see the painted dogs and the rhinos. After, we walked through the rain with our hoods up and made our way back to the coaches. Some of us fell asleep on the coach as we were all exhausted from all of the walking that we did. We found we had walked nearly 5 miles! All teachers were so impressed with how sensible and postive the children were throughout the day. Well done Year 1! Here are some pictures of the animals we saw:
Here is a picture of us before we left the zoo (we were a little wet).

Our visit to Chester Zoo Class 4B , by Mrs Saunders
Date: 9th Nov 2018 @ 4:07pm
We had a brilliant time this week when we visited Chester Zoo. Not only did we see some lovely animals but as we walked around we also investigated, by reading the informative displays and using our observation skills to find out as much as we could about their teeth. This has been part of our science studies learning about the functions of the different teeth that humans have. It was great to make comparisons.

Group four's adventures., by Mrs Palmi
Date: 1st Nov 2018 @ 2:04pm
Group 4 had a fantastic time at Condover Hall and have made memories we will treasure forever. Our first day involved finding our way around the centre during the orienteering session and learning how to survive by building shelters and making fires. We had a great second day of activities including abseiling, climbing, team challenge and conquest. On Wednesday we finished the trip by challenging ourselves on the 'Leap of Faith'. The children were a credit to the school and we had a wonderful time.
