Merseyside Police Band

We thoroughly enjoyed listening to ‘The Merseyside Police Band’ earlier this week. We loved all the songs, but especially the Disney ones! We learnt all about the different instruments that make up the band. We didn’t want your performance to end. Well done everyone!

Three Little Pigs Trapped In Ice!

As part of British Science Week Year 1 investigated the kidnapping of the Three Little Pigs. They explored what was in the packages, predicted how we could help the pigs and investigated how to release them from the ice they had been trapped in by the Big Bad Wolf. Take a look at our class record here:

‘Mad Science’ Assembly

What a fascinating Friday Morning! We really enjoyed carrying out lots of fun and exciting experiments with Turbo Tom! Science is really like magic! We really couldn’t believe our eyes… from water turning into juice, to flying water, to green snotty foam and even a genie in a bottle! Take a look at some of the photographs below:

World Book Day

We took part in our World Book Day event this year by decorating a hat. We had to catwalk through Lower Hall to show our hats as best we could. Can you guess which books these hats represent?

Safer Internet Day

We had a great time working with One Day Creative in a pirate themed e-Safety workshop. The session reminded us how important it is to have our own passwords, to keep our information private and to be respectful on the Internet.

Making Jigsaws

Year 1 have been learning how to make their own electronic jigsaws in Computing lessons. We took a photo, made it into a jigsaw and even printed some of them to try at Golden Time!

The Gingerbread Man

Year 1 have been enjoying lots of work on The Gingerbread Man. They have made and decorated Gingerbread biscuits, written their own Gingerbread man story and completed lots of Maths work using the Gingerbread Man story.
