Welcome back to Spring Term 2. We hope you all had a lovely break and are ready for more exciting learning in Year 1.
Our new topic is called The Enchanted Woodland.
We will be doing some learning about fairies and writing some letters to a fairy.
We will also get a chance to make a fairy garden during our topic lessons, which I am sure we will all find very exciting.
Towards the end of the term we will be going on a trip to Brixworth Country park as this will help with our science and topic lessons.
We can see that the children have been very busy over the half term, making some projects that link to our new topic. The children have loved showing them to the class and as you can see they are very good!
Come in to our classroom to have a look at the children's work.
On our first day back we had an exciting suit from The Happy Puzzle company.
The children were put into groups and had to complete a range of puzzles using their team work and cooperation skills.
In our first topic lesson of the term we learn about an artist called Andy Goldsworthy. He was someone who made sculptures using natural resources. The children worked in groups to collect materials outside and then made a pattern using the materials. They uses their teamwork skills to complete this task.
Our first parents morning of the new term!
Thank you to the parents who stayed. We celebrated pancake day a few days late but the children enjoyed making their own and colouring pancake themed pictures.
In a English we have been describing a picture of a fairy garden. We used a drama convention called Guided Tour. The children had to walk around in pairs with one person describing what they could see whilst the other had their eyes shut and had to imagine what they could see, hear, smell and feel.
The children came up with some fantastic adjectives which will help them with their writing this week.
World Book Day!
Ruby won a book for her fantastic World Book Day Costume!
As it is Science Week, we took part in a science experience to. We made a boat out of paper and had to tape it together. We then tested it in water by seeing how many cubes it could hold.
The children had lots of fun outside in the forest school. In groups, they made a den for any sized animal or bug.
