• All children should bring a named bottle of water to school. This will be brought home each day to be cleaned and refilled.

• All children need a pair of named, black pumps to wear inside while at school. These can be kept at school to change into each morning.

• All items brought into school (coats, gloves, hats etc should be clearly labelled with your child's name.

We enjoyed some watercolour painting this week, in response to our interfaith day.

We had a great time running our laps to raise money for Children in Need, thank you for all your donations!

We have been making moving pictures using sliders. We made them move up and down and side to side.

We painted poppies for Remembrance Day. You can see them in our classroom window.

We had a message from Beegu this week!

Thank you to everyone who has returned trip slips so promptly. Please let Miss Riches know if you can volunteer to help on the trip.

This week we have been using cubes to find one more and one less. We also enjoyed our first reading morning! On Friday we looked great as rockstars too!

In science this week Year 1 have been exploring their five senses. We had lots of fun trying to do different tasks using only our sense of touch!

Year 1 had a brilliant time learning about what lives in our gardens at RHS Harlow Carr last week. They enjoyed hunting for minibeasts, planting seeds and playing on the adventure playground!

This week in maths we have started looking at numbers from 50 to 100. The children worked really well, counting forwards and backwards from different starting points and completing number tracks. 

Health and Wellbeing Week

What a busy week we have had for Health and Wellbeing Week! Year 1 have taken part in Sports Day, a skipping workshop, a calming yoga session, a running challenge and lots of PSHE including a focus on sun safety. Today we were thinking about healthy food and enjoyed making a delicious and healthy Greek salad. Most of the children enjoyed tasting it too!
