Class 1

Summer Term!

Claire Howatson (chowatson) on: Class 1

During this term Class 1 have been exploring recycled materials.  We created a turtle using a box for the body, several tubes for the legs and added to it with plastic we found on our community walks. For Science Week we created silver rockets, moon rocks and planets, it was lots of fun.  We have also been to the Space Centre which has been really exciting; looking at the lights, relaxing in the ball pool and exploring the big slide.

Our group story this term has been “Row, Row, Row Your Boat’. Class 1 were already a big fan of this nursery rhyme, and now we have enjoyed exploring the story.  We made a wonderful display for the story using our artistic skills and have displayed it in our classroom. We have loved looking at books and listening to stories and are learning to carefully turn the pages

Class 1’s theme for this term is pirates; creating gold coins, treasure maps, digging for treasure in the sand pit, looking at jewellery, trying on pirate fancy dress outfits and lots of painting for another big display. We have been working really hard!

Happy New Year

Claire Howatson (chowatson) on: Class 1

It is lovely to welcome back everyone, we hope you have had a lovely holiday and are ready for the term ahead.  The school performance is held in the Spring term - for some of class 1 it will be their first time being part of a whole school activity.  We are looking forward to the wonderful and exciting experience that it is.

This term we will be introducing two new experiences - P.E with Wendy and Music with Mel.  It is a super way for the children to widen their experience of building relationships and working with adults beyond the class team.

We look forward to the arrival of Spring and all the changes and celebrations that the children will notice and be part of in the weeks ahead.

During this term, we will be celebrating Harvest, Macmillan Coffee Morning, Children In Need and Christmas Jumper Day. 

We will share our exciting journey through the Autumn Term with you as we learn new things having lots of fun along the way!

Summer Fun!

Claire Howatson (chowatson) on: Class 1

Summer is lovely in class 1. The children are enjoying the outside area that was developed in the Autumn term as part of gaining the Step Outside Quality mark. We have planted potatoes and will soon have more edible and sensory plants. During this term the children will be going to SPACE, as well as our occasional local trips out to Monkey magic, the park and the shops to buy ingredients for baking. We have followed the children’s interest in making mud pies after reading a sensory story called the mud walk.
