Class 1

Term 1

The children have had a great first term settling in and have really enjoyed exploring their new classroom. We have been learning all about different types of weather through our topic ‘Splendid Skies’. The children enjoyed going on an ‘Autumn walk’ to spot seasonal signs and collect different shaped and coloured leaves to make their ‘Leaf Man’.  On the last day of term we had our balloon launch which was a great success! We watched our balloons go higher and higher into the sky until eventually they disappeared. We were lucky enough to have a reply all the way from Holland!

We have had another fantastic term in Class 1 and have been working very hard.  We had a very exciting start to our topic when we had a visit from Creepy Claws.  We got to see a range of amazing animals including hedgehogs, tarantulas and snakes!  Throughout the term we also worked extremely hard on our nativity play, 'Prickly Hay'.  We really enjoyed performing to the parents who seemed to really enjoy it!

This term our topic is 'Memory Box'.  We started off our term with a toy workshop which we all really enjoyed.  We found out all about toys that children used to play with in the past and joined in with some old playground games.  During the term we have looked back at some memorable moments of our lives from special celebrations to family holidays to playing with our favourite toy.  We are aiming to create memory boxes which we are looking forward to sharing with our parents on Friday 9th February.
