Class 1

Class One have had a lovely last week of term. They have made Easter cards, been on a Lenten Retreat and had a mini Easter Egg Hunt! Mrs Rushton and I would like to wish you all a very happy Easter.

Class One had lots of fun today celebrating World Book Day! We were lucky enough to have a visit from a professional children's story teller, which we loved. We also designed our own book characters and book covers. Have a look at all the fun we had below.

Class One have had lots of fun learning about The Gingerbread Man this week! First we watched some CCTV of the Gingerbread Man, then we read a letter he had written asking us for help! Throughout the week we have sequenced our gingerbread man story, retold it using story cones, written about the story, looked at similarities and differences between ourselves and gingerbread men, designed our own gingerbread men and decorated some edible ones!

Class One would like to wish you all a very happy Christmas.

On the very last day of term, Class One arrived to school to find that we had received a special visitor who left behind snowy footprints and a letter! Class One were then treated to a special video message off Santa and his reindeers. The children then each found a present off Santa, before being treated to a Christmas party. We had a lovely morning eating party food, playing party games and having a disco. The children were then treated to a film in the afternoon. All the children had a lovely day and we cannot wait to welcome them back in January.

For the last two weeks of term, our learning was centered around Christmas. We recreated the nativity and had lots of fun acting it out! We also put up our Christmas tree and made mince pies, Christmas decorations and Christmas cards, all whilst finding out what mischief Norman the Elf got up to each day. Class One also celebrated Christmas Jumper Day and had lots of fun learning about how Christmas is celebrated around the world.

Class One have been extremely busy this half-term. We continued with our vehicle (Sensational Seasons) and learnt all about autumn and winter. We made autumn hedgehog collages, autumn and winter hand-print paintings, and designed our own snowmen. We then read the story of Stickman and went on a winter walk to find our own sticks to turn into stickmen!

Class One have had a lovely first week back at school.This week we have been learning all about Autumn. We went on an Autumn walk to the Dell, and made hedgehog collages from the leaves we found whilst we were there. The children also made poppies with Mrs Howard for the whole-school display.

Class One had lots of fun raising money for Mary's Meals. They watched a charity bike ride, had their own bake sale and took part in a sponsored teddy bear walk.

Class One had a lovely first half-term, playing with their friends and settling into their new routines. Our vehicle for the Autumn term (September-December) is 'Sensational Seasons' and we will eventually make our own weather forecasts. This half-term we have had fun learning all about Spring and Summer.
