Harvest Assembly

A big thank you to all the parents, carers and friends of the children who came to watch our assembly this morning!

But most of all a GREAT BIG Thank You to all of the children who have been practicing their lines all week!

Farm to Fork

On Tuesday, we had a lovely trip to Tesco where we learned about all of the different types of food and how they are made. We looked at the ingredients needed to make bread, the different colours of fruit and vegetables and the different kinds of fish available. We enjoyed feeling the freezing temperatures of the freezer and the chilled temperature of the fridge.

Year One Celebrate Rosh Hashanah!

Year One have been learning about the special Jewish celebration of Rosh Hashanah. We dipped apples in honey in the hope that we have a sweet Jewish New Year. Some of us thought that it was delicious and others weren’t so keen! We also used card and crepe paper to make our very own apples too. Have a look at our blog to see what we did.

Transition morning in Year One!

What a great morning we had on Thursday! Your children have settled in to Year One beautifully. They are now coming into the classroom confidently on their own and are wonderful independent learners. Have a look at our blog to see what a super job they all did collaging their own faces.

What a super week Year 1!

Wow! Miss Cope and I cannot believe just how well all of the children have settled into their new journey in Year One! We are so proud of all of them! We have been getting to know all of the children through their “all about me” boxes. It has been so interesting to see our children’s families and learning all about their hobbies, the toys that they like to play with and their favourite things! Thank you mums, dads and other special adults for helping the children to create such informative, creative boxes. We are so excited about this year and we look forward to watching your children achieve amazing things. Thank you again children and adults and please take a look at the boxes for yourselves.

Year One Down on the Farm!

What an amazing way to spend our last Monday in Year One! We shared lots of super experiences and lasting memories. The children were so well behaved and we were all so proud of them. We saw horses, cows, hens, pigs and donkeys. We fed lots of different animals and after feeding the hens we collected their eggs. We spent time in a beautiful vegetable garden and tasted some fruit and vegetables that we had never tasted before.  Some of the children said that it was one of the best days that they had ever had which we think sums up the day that we had! Fantastic!

Welcome to Year One!

What a wonderful morning Mrs Stillwell had with the new children that will be coming to Year One next year. They are all absolute superstars and Mrs Stillwell can already see that we are going to have great fun and exciting learning experiences together. Please look at the photographs below to see what we all did. Can we also send a huge THANK YOU to everyone that came along to support the children.

Year One Visit Twycross Zoo.

We all had an amazing day at the zoo last Tuesday. We saw lots of animals, even some of the ones that we have been learning all about in class. We all had great fun and we all behaved like superstars. Please look at our blog so that you can see how great our day was!

Key Stage 1 make gloop!

What a super day we had in Key Stage 1 making gloop. We all worked together to experiment and discover more amazing things about solids and liquids. We had great fun and all got a little messy. Mrs Stillwell was so proud of everyone as they behaved beautifully and all helped each other – super team work!
