Happy New Year ! I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and Santa brought you everything you wanted.
We have another busy half-term ahead in which we will exploring the Victorians. This will include a visit to the Lincolnshire Life Museum, during which we will have the opportunity to experience life as a Victorian child. Please see more information below about our learning this half-term.
Mrs Keane is visiting another school this half-term and we have Miss Carter joining us in Class 1 for this period.
Enablers' Day - Optimism and Perseverance
We had a fabulous day exploring and using Optimism and Perseverance.
The children discussed why the colour of our Optimism owl was yellow and how this made us look on the bright side of things. We then changed a black piece of paper from darkness to light by collaging it with lots of different gold and yellow materials.
The children used their perseverance skills in Maths to find as many different ways to fill half the treasure chests with treasure.
They also had to persevere to make their houses for the 'Three Little Pigs'. They had to choose suitable materials and the correct joining techniques.
Welcome back and I hope you enjoyed the 2 week break. The half-term ahead is another busy one with the approach to Christmas!
Our topic this half-term will be 'Stories of 3' . This will be based on the familiar stories: The Three Little Pigs, Goldilocks and the Three bears and The Three Billy Goats Gruff. Please refer to the topic web below for more detail.
PE - PE will be on a Tuesday morning, during which the children will be receiving tennis coaching and on a Thursday afternoon with Mr Lindley. Please ensure you have a fully labelled PE kit in school for those days.
Homework will be set on a Wednesday and due in the following Monday. Reading diaries need to be in school everyday.
United Kingdom Day
To bring their current class topic to an end, Year 1 had a 'United Kingdom Day'. The children learnt to dance a Scottish Reel, made Welsh Cakes, sang the National Anthem and created the national flowers and landmarks from each country using a variety of craft and art skills. A fun day was had by all!
