Welcome to Class 1!
Welcome back, Class 1. I hope that you have all had a super half term holiday. We have a lot of exciting events to look forwards to, including Sports Day, the Summer Fair and our trip to Woodside Wildlife Park.
Our topic this half term is 'In the Jungle.' For more information please see the topic web below.
Please note our new PE days this half term; it will be every Wednesday and Thursday. Please ensure you have your fully labelled PE kit in school on your PE days and your school uniform is also fully labelled. As we are approaching warmer months, please ensure you have a water bottle and sun hat in school every day.
Please ensure your reading diary is in school every day.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask.
Class 1 had a superb day on World Book Day. The children enjoyed sharing their book choices with their friends. They had a lot of fun acting out the start of our story, 'Journey'. In the afternoon they used the story to inspire them to create their own door and imaginative world.
Class 1 had a very enjoyable trip to the Museum of Lincolnshire Life. They viewed some Victorian rooms and discovered how different they were to their own homes today. They also handled some Victorian artefacts, including a doll made from the sole of a shoe! They also experienced life in a Victorian schoolroom - luckily nobody was given the cane! The children played with some Victorian toys and compared them to some of their own toys. Finally, they went for a walk down a Victorian street, where they saw a Victorian printers shop, among many others. The children all had a wonderful day and all decided that being a child today is much nicer than it would have been in Victorian times!
Class 1 used empathy, questioning and independence within their learning and activities. They used empathy to think about the war from different perspectives. They learnt about the meaning of different coloured poppies. In Maths, they used questioning to identify different coins.
Class 1 enjoyed an exciting day out at Woodside Wildlife Park. The children had a guided tour of the park; they answered and asked a lot of questions about the animals and learnt lots of new facts. They saw crocodiles, wolves, tigers, penguins and many other interesting creatures. They were extremely brave; most of them held or stroked a snake and a lizard.
We had a wonderful day celebrating the Queen's Platinum Jubilee. We wrote about all the different things we would do if we were king or queen for the day, we solved a mathematical mystery at the palace and designed commemorative plates and medals.
Class 1 visited St Wilfred's Church and were shown many of the different symbols and features that can be found in Christian churches.
The theme for our 'Enablers Day' was ' Saving our Planet!'.
Class 1 used the Enablers of Optimism and Perseverance to try and save our world. We discussed different ways that we could help to change the future of the planet and how small steps and working together can make a big difference. We collected objects from nature and built 'Promise Trees.' We all made a promise to the planet to make small changes to our lives. They included turning off lights, picking up litter and recycling waste. Class 1 are optimistic that their actions can have a huge impact on the future!
As part of our topic this half term, we completed handwriting in the style of the Victorians, we made Victorian toys and created art work in the style of Charles Rennie Macintosh. We also decided that modern day schools are much better than Victorian schools!
