The Royal Baby…

Yesterday, Year One took on the role of news reporters. We began by watching Prince William and Princess Kate’s exit from the hospital, as well as the visit by the Royal couple’s other children. We then discussed the setting and scene from what we had scene, generating a list of useful words and facts. All of us wrote our own version of events.

We also predicted baby names for the new prince and watched the salute to mark the prince’s birth live in the afternoon!

Measurement

This week in Year One, we have been focusing on measurement. We have been using various resources to measure and compare length and height. We have also been measuring outside! We used metre sticks to measure a 10m track and then timed each other running the track.

Year One’s New Topic: Paws, Claws, Fins and Fingers

Yesterday, we spent the afternoon exploring our new topic which is all about animals. We discussed pets that we had and created bar charts to reflect pets in Year One. Those of us with pets completed a descriptive piece of writing about them. We also discussed what we would like to learn in the new topic and what we already know about animals. Some of us also had a go at sorting animals into groups.

SPORT RELIEF: Staff vs Pupils Charity Football Match

Last Friday, we held our Staff vs Pupils football matches, all in aid of Sport Relief. We had a fantastic turnout of players (both pupils and staff) and amazing support from pupil and parents.

We managed to raise just over £420!! Thank you so much for everyone’s support, it was a very enjoyable evening for staff and pupils alike (as well as lots of sore teachers over the weekend!)

Another great STEM Club

This week, the children in STEM Club became engineers! They had a challenge to see how tall they could make a structure using only dried spaghetti and marshmallows. We had great fun working out how to make our structures stronger and decided that Mia’s structure was the best!

 

Super Science Week

Wow, what a way to start Science Week! Mrs Abraham introduced STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) through some exciting investigations. We found out all about the fabulous activities and challenges that will be taking place over the week. We will be having a Celebration Assembly on Friday at 2.30pm where members of each class will explain what they have taken part in and learnt over the week.
