Year 1 news...

Comic Relief 2019

This year we wore odd socks for Comic Relief and all donated £1. We were even given the opportunity to enter a joke competition for 50p. All money raised was donated to charity. Take a look at some of our funky socks below:


British Science Week

On Thursday the whole school were lucky enough to take part in the Silly Science Workshops as part of British Science Week. It was so exciting, take a look:


Reading Rainforest Grand Opening

The Chester Zoo rangers have officially opened our ‘Reading Rainforest’. We have turned our library into a Rainforest after learning about animals that live in the Rainforest. We have promised to try our best to use sustainable palm oil.


KS1 World Book Day Parade

To celebrate World Book Day children dressed up in a hat or a T-shirt of their favourite books. Everyone had made such an effort with their outfits and we enjoyed working out which books they had dressed as. KS1 and F2 met in the hall for a costume parade to show off their creative outfits.


Food Topic Exit Point

To celebrate the end of our fabulous food topic in Year 1 we tasted different foods from around the world. We used a world map to locate the different countries and we found out which flag belongs to each country. It was interesting to discover that different foods are eaten around the world.

 


Chester Zoo Workshop

We had a visit from Niyarah from Chester Zoo who told us all about the rainforests. We talked about the weather there and all the animals that live there. We listened to the sounds of the rainforest and could hear birds singing, leaves crunching and animals moving around. We were very sad when we found out that the orangutans which live in the rainforest are dying because their trees are getting chopped down.


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.
