Year 1 news...

Fitness Friday

We had a fabulous Fitness Friday. We all came to school dressed in our sportswear and did lots of fitness activities throughout the day. We started the day by carrying out a ‘Wake Up Shake Up’! Take a look below:

Fitness Fun Friday in the Foundation Stage and KS1

We started the day off energetically with a wake up and shake up routine. Throughout the rest of the day we have enjoyed different physical activities to help us all keep fit whilst having fun at the same time. We moved our bodies to the beat of a lively song with the help of some of our favourite book characters. Back in our classrooms we have been feeling great and ready to learn with a positive mental attitude.

Anti Bullying Production

Altru Drama Company came to our school to put on a performance for Anti Bullying Week. The performance taught us all about respect. We learned so much and it was also very fun! Take a look at some of the pictures below:

Children In Need 2018

What a wonderful day we had for Children In Need. All the children brought in £1 to wear something either spotty or yellow. The children also had the opportunity to buy a cake at playtime for 50p. The children also had the chance to pay 50p to enter a colouring competition. There were three winners across the school. Thank you everyone for your generous donations.

Toy Topic Entry Point

In Year 1 we started our toy topic by bringing our favourite toys into school. First we had a toy parade to share are toys with the year group. We then wrote about our toys and sketched a picture.

Letter from Rod Campbell

What an exciting delivery Year 1 had this morning. We could not believe our eyes when we opened a parcel from Mr Rod Campbell. He is our favourite author who has kindly sent us two of his lovely books and a beautifully illustrated letter.

Remembrance 2018

Our Remembrance Assembly was very special. Each class did a little something to remember all the people who gave their lives for us today. We are so proud of all the children. Thank you everyone.

Trip to the post box

We walked to the post box to post our letters to Mr Campbell. We have really enjoyed reading his story ‘Dear Zoo’ and we wanted to tell him that we changed the ended by adding a different animal. We are excited to find out whether he will reply to our letters!

Royden Park

Year 1 enjoyed their trip to Royden Park. The Rangers taught us all about the different seasons and we played some games on the field. We then explored the woods and searched for different coloured leaves and twigs to make a picture. We used what we had found to make a potion to release the different autumn smells.

Harvest Costumes

Year 1 have made some fantastic harvest fruit and vegetable costumes. Can you guess what they have dressed as?
