Harvest Crown Making - 15th October 2018

We have been preparing for harvest festival for the past week. In class, we have been learning about harvest and have made collages of different fruits and vegetables.

Multi-Skills Competition - 9th October 2018

This week, 24 children from Year One went to the Team Activ multi-skill competition. The three teams worked exceptionally hard and showed real determination on all their activities. We came runners up in the competition and had a special mention for our excellent behaviour and sportsmanship! Well done Year One you were fantastic!

Leaf Printing - 4th October 2018

In art this week we have been using and developing our skills in mixing colours to print using leaves from the front garden.  We were able to think of adjectives to describe the leaves as we have been learning what an adjective is and how to use them in our writing.

PE - 2nd & 3rd October 2018

Counting in 10s - 21st September 2018.

In Maths this week we have been counting forwards and backwards in 2s, 5s and 10s. The children have worked very hard to remember the patterns and completed lots of tasks to show their understanding. Above are some of the pictures taken when the children were counting in 10s!

Oral Hygiene - 20th September 2018

This term our PBL topic is People Who Help Us. We have been learning about all the different people that help us in our every day lives from parents and families to doctors and dentists. We were very lucky today to have a visit from the Dental Hygiene team who taught us all about keeping our teeth and mouths healthy. They even left us a bag of things to take home! We learnt about how much sugar was in different drinks and foods, and how long to brush our teeth for twice a day - 2 minutes!
