What we have been doing in Year 1
Seaside fun day (end of Year 1)
We had such a good time at our seaside fun day!! First we watched a Punch and Judy show where we were showed the puppets and discussed how they work. Then we had fun playing Volleyball and got Summer tattoos outside. After that we watching a magic show and went outside to have a donkey ride. Finally the ice cream van came and we all got a '99'. What an amazing day!!!! I think the enjoyment is evident on the children's faces!!!
This term, in computing we have enjoyed our topic- 'We are storytellers'. The children have created a talking book to share with others.
The children have used sound recording equipment to record sound based on their previous topic- 'The Great Fire Of London'. They have developed collaboration skills as they worked together in groups of 3. They discussed how a talking book differs from a paper-based book and decided that a book with sounds effects and expressive voices was much more interesting.

Houses and homes topic.

Here are some pictures of the children enjoying their return to school. Can you spot the Easter bunny who surprised us by sneaking into our classroom and filling our Easter boxes with treats. We think he must know that we are the best class!
Well done everybody for a great term, have a great Easter break!
Spring Term in Year 1
This term we have been learning about gymnastics in P.E. We have practised lots of shapes and positions- straight ,dish, arch, front support, back support, Y shape, T shape, L shape, straddle, star, tuck and pike. We worked hard on stretching our bodies and pointing our toes. Then we had a go at mirror images with a partner.
When we got really good with our shapes we practised doing a small sequence on the equipment. We also had a go at a jump, bending our knees and finishing with a straight position.
Children In Need
We had a fantastic day on Friday 13th celebrating Children In Need. We did P.E with Joe Wicks, designed a new Pudsey bandana and had a virtual assembly from Mr Platt. Thank you for all your kind donations.
Last week we remembered those who gave their lives for our today. We each made a cross with a poppy on. These pictures show us planting our crosses. We then had a one minute silence on Google Classroom with the rest of the school to show our respect to the soldiers. We also listened to 'The Last Post' played my Miss Lea.
