Year 1

Orwell Boat Trip

Year 1 and 2 had a fantastic day out on the river. We saw lots of wildlife, landmarks, other boats and much more. The rain stayed away and the children learnt so much whilst having a great time. Many thanks to all the adults who helped and to all the people along the river who put up with us waving at them.

Share afternoon

We had a great time at our share afternoon painting the alien masks.

Fun Run for Mary's Meals

Well done to all the children who competed in our fundraising event this morning. We let the children count the laps they ran with some claiming to have completed over 2,000 (the equivalent of running from London to Manchester) although 15 was the average. It is a fantastic cause and we all had  a great time. Don't forget to join us for the cake sale next week when we will be aiming to sell over 2 billion buns!

There has been a lot of fantastic imaginative play in Year 1. Decorating and manipulating the boxes, in all sorts of ways, helps build our vocabulary and allows us to create a narrative to our play. Having said this, sorry for all the paint on shirts, dresses, trousers and jumpers.

Working with charcoal

We have been reading the book 'Owl Babies' by Martin Wadell. We imagined being an owl alone in a dark wood, what would you see? How might you feel? We then used charcoal to draw some illustrations. It did get a little bit messy!
