Year 1 have been busy researching, designing and making their own Tudor style houses during our topic lessons on the Great Fire of London. We now have our very own Pudding Lane assembled in the classroom…for now!
Year 1 had a special visitor this week, Lahna’s Mam. Lynsey is a journalist at the Evening Chronicle and Journal and she came to help us write our own newspaper reports. We found out what skills a journalist needs, how a newspaper is actually made and looked at some really old newspaper articles and Mrs Wells’ was even in one of them! She then helped us to write our own headlines and she was very impressed with our ideas.
Miss McKeown and Mrs Robins have been enjoying meeting their new class! During their transition morning Y1 have been thinking about Jewish beliefs in God. Children have been looking at the Shabbat and the significance of this prayer. We have also discussed similarities between Judaism and Christianity. Miss McKeown has been blown away by children’s transition into Y2 and their level of independence.
Hi Mrs Smith I just wanted to say a massive thank you for giving Grace the opportunity to learn to ride her bike properly after school. She has come on brilliant and now riding her bike without the use of her stabilisers and she is over the moon and she said she is now a big girl bless her.
I’m absolutely bursting with pride right now over what she has achieved after 4 lessons thanks again!
Here are some photos of Kenzie’s recent holiday. He went to the zoo, water sea life park, Caravy beach and Costa Del water park. It looks like the family had lots of fun!!
Today in Art Year One have been experimenting with different printing materials. We used sponges, bubble wrap, cubes and then even thought of our own to use our hands and fingers! It was great seeing all of the different printing effects due to different surfaces. We evaluated which we thought was the best material to print with.
Hope everyone has had a great Easter.
Zachary has had a fab, fun filled, Easter holiday
