Year 1’s Christmas performance

First of all, the children have worked so hard this term and the Year One team feel very proud of their progress and hard work. The resilience and determination they have displayed throughout the Autumn term has been amazing.

They have worked so hard on their songs and dances for the performance so we hope you enjoy it.

Have a wonderful Christmas break and we will see you in the new term, ready for lots more fun and learning!

Woodlanders

Year One had a lovely time in the woods this week. They were very busy, some children made ‘campfires’ and others made ‘leaf soup’ and ‘mud potions’ in the woodlands kitchen. They explored the woodlands for signs of Autumn and we discussed how they thought the woods would look different in each season.

Music makers

Year One have been exploring rap music, we used their bodies to keep up with the pulse of the music. They clapped in time with the pulse, marched along with the pulse and danced along to the pulse. Then we used the xylophones. We talked about the features of the musical instrument, including keys, notes and pitch. Then we used the xylophones to play along with the pulse. They tried hard and enjoyed using the instruments.

Harvest Festival

Thank you for your generous food donations towards the Harvest Festival.

Year One have enjoyed practicing ‘Summer, Autumn, Winter, Spring’ and ‘Big Red Combine Harvester’ for the Harvest Festival this year. We hope you enjoy watching the children sing the songs beautifully in our Harvest performance video, they did a brilliant job!

Who’s been causing mischief in Year One?

Year One arrived on Friday morning to discover that a mystery person has visited our classroom and caused lots of mess! The children became detectives for the day and had to write a list of clues that would lead them to the suspect. What clues can you see in the picture?

The children found ‘blonde hair’, ‘red ribbon’, ‘porridge’, a broken chair’ and ‘footsteps’. Who could it be?

Welcome back Year One

The Year One team are so proud of Year One, they have settled back into school so well! We are really impressed with how hard the children have been working. 

We have been working on routines, reflecting on our lockdown experiences and learning about our current whole school value – ‘Caring’.

Year One have been so kind and caring towards one other at school. What a positive start!
