Wow Afternoon - Summer term , by Miss Gough-Hughes

Date: 24th Apr 2018 @ 4:10pm

Year 1 Wow Afternoon! 

 

For our Wow afternoon, children in Year 1 dressed up as gardeners in order to celebrate the start of our Summer term topic: plants. Children looked like excellent farmers and we thank parents for getting costumes for the children to wear.

Throughout the afternoon, we did some exciting jobs to do with gardening. We began our afternoon by thinking about what we already know about plants and then also thinking about what we would like to know by the end of the term. Children enjoyed discussing things they already know about plants and sharing this with their friends. We were amazed with how much the children knew! We then went outside and planted our very own bean seed, using soil, a seed and the watering cans that children had brought in. We will continue to water these seeds in school in the hopes that they will grow and children can then bring them home. Next, we were looking around the playground to spot plants and we drew a picture of a plant of our choice and labelled around it. Finally, at the end of the day we had the opportunity to look at different exotic fruit in order to think about where they are grown around the world. Some children even tasted the fruit (if they wanted to). The fruit we looked at were: bananas, strawberries, passion fruit, mango, kiwi and pineapple. Children were excellent at describing what the different fruits looked like and even gave some fantastic guesses as to which countries they were from: We hope that the children continue to enjoy learning about our topic this term and are able to share with you what they have learnt. .

Mini Police Parking Operation Success, by Mrs Walters

Date: 22nd Mar 2018 @ 10:24am

Our mini police had a very successful morning working with local police officers today as part of their parking operation.

Last week they targeted upper site at the end of the day but today lower site was under scrutiny at the start of the school day.

Several drivers were warned over parking and others were stopped for speeding. Most chose to face the mini police court rather than have a fine.

Parents were very pleased to see the police on patrol at school and we hope they will be back soon.

A visit from Leonie Roberts , by Miss Gough-Hughes

Date: 15th Mar 2018 @ 5:18pm

Today, Year 1 received a very special visitor called Leonie Roberts. Leonie is an author and teacher from Liverpool who delivered an assembly to the children. Leonie discussed who she was, where she was from, why she decided to become an author and how long it took her. She then read the children her book called My Colourful Chameleon which the children thoroughly enjoyed. The book had lots of rhyming words in it so the children could easily join in on key parts of the story. We thought of questions in our classes and asked Leonie some of them: Where did you get the idea of the story from? Did you write the story on your own or did someone help you? Why did you decide to use rhyming words in the story? What is your favourite part and why? Leonie inspired children to follow their dreams and work hard to become what they want to be in the future. Year 1 all thoroughly enjoyed hearing the story and will love to share it with you at home. 

A huge thank you to Leonie Roberts for coming in and sharing her fantastic story with us!
