Journeys

We joined in a workshop with members of the Egg Theatre as part of our new project 'Journeys'. We used our imagination to create holiday destinations, modes of transport and played pirate games with the captain! It was great fun! 

 Pilgrimage - We had a pilgrimage day in KS1.  In Owls Class, we made bags to carry what we needed to take on a pilgrimage.  We chose to put in items such as a Bible, Rosary Beads and a candle. We also put in our hopes and worries. We took them to St Alphege's Church, where Father Malcom told us about the church and shared a prayer with us. We left our hopes and worries with God. 

 

Term 3 - January 2019

Welcome back after Christmas! We hope you had a lovely holiday and are ready for the new year.

Science Day

We have enjoyed a whole day of science experiments! We had great fun investigating and sorting materials, making a suitable home for a dinosaur, drawing around our bodies and labeling the picture, designing and making tin foil boats to see if they would float and testing how chocolate changes state when it is heated and cooled. What an exciting and busy day! 

  

Class Assemblies 

Each week a small group of children plan and lead the class assembly. This is a very special time in our week. 

 

Term 2 - November 2018

Welcome back after half term! We hope you had a relaxing break and are ready for the new term.

Nativity and Christingle

 We have really enjoyed our Christmas preparations which have included playing the parts of towns people and donkeys for our Nativity play "Baubles" and joining in with the Infant Christingle service. 

Viking Day

Our amazing Viking day started off with Hrothgar raiding each of the classes in turn. He blew his horn and we all went to the hall to see the Viking village he had set up. During the course of the day we took part in story telling, fire building, learning how to use bows and arrows and explored the Viking artefacts. We also had some great parent helpers who worked with each class to make Viking longboats out of clay - what a great day!

Project Letter - Tell me a Story

Project Web - Tell me a Story

 

Thank you to all those who were able to attend our workshop on Year 1 expectations and the Reading/Writing elements of our curriculum. Please find the slideshow and handouts in our homework section. 

 

Maths - We have been learning about place value and making our own number lines to play games. We have also been learning about ordinal numbers and how we can use positional language e.g. first, second, third. 

 

  

 

We have also been really enjoying our project 'Tell Me a Story' and have been retelling and making up our own stories based upon Katie Morag, Tree, Night Pirates and Handa's Surprise. One of our challenges was to work in teams using our Learning 2 Learn muscles (perseverance, listening, collaboration) to build our own basket for Handa's fruit and design and complete an obstacle course carrying our fruit safely from one end to the other!
