Welcome to Year 1
(Class 3)

  

 

Term 1 - Superhero Me!

 

The children have settled in well to Year 1 and made a great start to our new topic. With capes made, masks decorated and muscles warmed up, we have embarked on many Superhero missions -  a superhero treasure hunt, Supertato making, Superveg assembling, trap building (for those pesky evil peas!), vegetable exploring, and completing many rescue missions, to name a few!

A few snaps from the last 2 weeks

We have been learning about a Superhero from the past: Florence Nightingale. The children enjoyed acting out scenes from Scutari hospital playing wounded soldiers and helpful nurses.
Some real life Superheroes have come to visit Year 1 this week. The children wrote questions to ask in order to find out more about the jobs these people do: a paramedic, a police officer and a caretaker.

On Monday, as part of book week, a local author David Melling visited Year 1. He shared some of his stories about his main character Hugless Douglas, and showed the children how to sketch this loveable bear. Their focus and creative flair was amazing!

Term 2 - Memory Box

 

After half term, we began our new topic called 'Memory Box'. As a class we are enjoying listening to each other share their photo timelines to show their life so far! Thank you so much for all your hard work at home in producing these. It is so lovely to watch and listen to the children as they proudly take centre stage in Class 3!

 

Toy Museum Workshop

 

On Monday 11th November, the children enjoyed welcoming the Toy museum into our class to look at and play with many old toys. We were challenged to sort a selection of toys into old and new, looking carefully at what the toys were made of to help give us clues - we were very good at this. Sonia helped us to each make a thaumotrope, which we were able to bring home. One of our favourite things about the morning was playing with the replica toys. A super session which inspired lots of fantastic writing! Great work Class 3!

Term 3 -Paws, Claws and Whiskers

 

During this term, we will be learning all about animals.

We had such an exciting morning in Year 1 when Herb, Mrs Kelly's whippet, visited us in class. The children were incredibly well behaved and asked such lovely questions all about how he is looked after as a pet. If the children wanted to, they were able to give Herb a stroke and get a closer look. Thank you Herb for being so well behaved!!

Mr Stead's mice come to visit!

Mr Stead very kindly brought his daughter's mice to school on Friday to share with Year 1. The children asked so many varied questions and enjoyed watching them enjoy their food. It was funny watching the Wish run out and pinch the sunflower seed from her sister!
