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!

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 One. He shared some of his stories about his main character Hugless Douglas and showed the children how to sketch this loveable bear. Look at their amazing drawings...

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!!
