Dinosaur Art

User Rating:  / 0

Year 1 have been working hard this week to create beautiful dinosaur themed ceramic tiles. All the children made their own tile and painted it with an appropriate background. Some of the children painted beautiful sunsets for their background while others chose a more traditional African landscape. The children have now painted and attached dinosaurs to their landscape and the children's finished tiles look great. look out for them on display soon!Isabel

Year 1 were very excited to take part in the school dance audition infront of Mrs Allen and Mrs Milward. Both Year 1 classes showed off their class dance and performed brilliantly. Mrs Allen and Mrs Milward were so pleased all of the children in Year 1 will be performing during our special day of Jubilee celebrations.

dinosaur_report_2dinosaur_reportYear 1 have been working hard on their dinosaur reports in Literacy and they are now complete! We researched information in non-fiction books and on internet websites. We looked at the features of non-chronological reports and sorted our own research information into categories. We included a bold title, an introduction, subheadings, questions, pictures, captions and labels on our own reports. They look fantastic!! Take a look...

Year 1 were reminded of the importance of the Green Cross Code this week with a visit from staff at the Pedestrian training centre. The children practised crossing the road safely outside the school, learned how to find safe places to cross a road, practised using pelican crossings and even got to dress up like crossing patrol officers!


Animal man visit!!!

What a treat! Year 1 really enjoyed meeting a few of The Animal Man’s friends today. We meet a hungry giant lizard, fluffy the Tarantula and a spotted owl who liked the look of our new playground - or did he spot something moving in the bushes? A few lucky (or not) children were licked and tickled by these fabulous creatures, whilst The Animal Man explained some interesting facts. What a fun way to learn!


Phew!! What a busy few weeks!

Year 1 have had a very busy finish to the Spring term. We have had a great time completing our 'Spring' topic and made Easter Simnel cakes and woven baskets. Some of us enjoyed another visit to Bridge school to make Easter Bonnets with our new friends and of course we all enjoyed the Easter Bonnet parade at school. During Healthy Heroes week we were put through our paces by Daniel Berry who taught the children to be 'Little Soldiers'. The children were taught to sprint train, punch and shout really loudly!

To top off our busy Half term 1EE were thrilled to find out they had won the FKS/KS1 Scoot it/ Bike it competition for the class with the most journeys to school. The class has won a special teddy mascot (now named Scooty) and each child received a slap band for their efforts. Well done 1EE!

Year 1 children and staff enjoyed a fantastic day out at Avoncroft Museum. The children had a great time investigating the vast array of buildings at the museum and following a treasure trail around the site. Favourite buildings included the Ice house, Jail, Windmill and Church. Another highlight for the children was finding Doctor Who's TARDIS in the museums collection of telephone boxes.The children also took part in a brick building workshop where they learnt how bricks are made to be uniform and include a frog! (Ask your child all about it!!)

Children in Year 1 had a fantastic time during Science day. They thoroughly enjoyed working with all the different teachers across the phase and having the chance to get involved with all the Science activities on offer. One of the activities on offer taught the children about the three states of matter; Solids, Liquids and Gases. The children experimented with cornflour gloop, a fantastic substance which is solid whilst moving and a liquid when still, messy but marvellous!!

1EE enjoyed welcoming our friends from Bridge school on Friday. Children and staff came to watch 1EE perform their class assembly based on their work from the Autumn term on Toys. 1EE enjoyed talking to the children and showing them their puppets and sewing work.
