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.

This morning in Reception we have been learning about Christianity. We have learnt about a little girl named Grace who goes to church to pray. We have also made a cross which is the symbol of Christianity.

We would love to hear what your child says about what they have learnt.

Take a look at the amazing collages Year One created in preparation for Eid. They listened carefully to the instructions then completed each step perfectly.

Happy Eid al-Fitr

Happy Easter

We had a very busy last week of term in the Nursery. The children have been busy making and creating lots of Easter arts and crafts, the cards home to their families are fantastic with super writing on the inside! We also made chocolate nests. On Wednesday the children had to carefully follow clues that the Easter bunny had left for us, they were brilliant detectives and found a basket of chocolates for each group! Well done everyone. A huge thank you to everyone who made an Easter Bonnet or decorated an egg, they were fantastic and you all looked amazing!
We hope you all have a lovely Easter holiday with your families, we look forward to seeing you next term.

Easter Bonnets

A big thank you to all those that made an Easter bonnet. They all looked absolutely fantastic and it was clear to see how much time and effort had gone into them.

A big well done to Woodrow and Daniel who won the egg competition, and Vinnie and Emori who won the hat competition.

Easter Fun

What a lovely day we have had in Reception today. We made chocolate nests this morning and talked about how we could melt the chocolate and then this afternoon we went on an Easter egg hunt! The last clue said:
Good morning everybody is what we say
Where do we do our register everyday?
This is the last clue, I wonder what we’ll find
Let’s see if the Easter bunny has been very kind.

Can you work out where the Easter bunny left some chocolate for us?

Mothering Sunday

Year one had time to think about the special Mums/ladies who love and care for them this week as we prepared for our special assembly. The overwhelming message from the children was love, devotion, time and encouragement. Thank you to all the special Mums/ladies in our children’s lives for absolutely everything you do xx
Happy Mothering Sunday 💐💐💐❤️

Happy Mothers Day Year 1 Mums!

Year one have been very busy making Mothers Day cards, making book marks and painting pictures of their Mums. All of the children had so many lovely things to say about them and so they wanted to send them a message to let them know why they love them so much.

Because of the rain yesterday we were unable to have our Pancake Day races, so today we saw some sunshine and went outside. The children demonstrated some excellent balancing skills as they ran around the track. Well done to all our children who took part. An extra special well done to our winners Lyla-Rai, Briley, Harrison and Reggie!
