We are known as the Donaldsons, named after the  well loved British childrens author Julia Donaldson.  We are very lucky to have two teachers in our class: Mrs Kilner on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays and Mrs Newhall on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.   We also have lots of help from Miss Hill, Miss Bell and Mrs Price.

In year 1, we have pet guinea pigs named Albert and Stuart.  Albert was named after Albert Einstein as he often comes to the bars of his cage during Maths lessons.  Stuart got his name due to him looking like Stuart Little.  They love to eat fresh vegetables such as: broccoli, carrots and peppers.  If you have any leftovers please bring them in,  Albert and Stuart will be very grateful.

Life cycle of a butterfly.

In our PBL we have been learning about the life cycle of a butterfly.  First we were given some caterpillars.  Next we watched them turn into a chrysalis. then we observed them transform into beautiful butterflies.  Finally we released them back to nature.

Florence Nightingale

This term we are learning about people who help us.  Last week, Florence Nightingale came into school to tell us what nursing was like in Victorian times.  We enjoyed dressing up and role playing as soldiers and nursing.  She also brought us lots of nursing memorabilia to look at.  It was a fantastic experience!
