How to catch a dragon!

Year 1 (Year 1) on: Year 1's Blog

This week Year 1 have had their very own class dragon! It was discovered on Monday morning when there were books and pencils all over the classroom. The dragon has proved very tricky to catch, we've been busy coming up with plans to stop the dragon escaping. We're yet to succeed! 

Year 1's Health Centre is open!

Year 1 (Year 1) on: Year 1's Blog

And the doctor and nurses have had an extremely busy day! Check ups were done, bandages and plasters applied, eye examinations made and even complaints were made. This term we are learning all about the human body, and Year 1 need to name all the parts of the body. 

Have you ever been an explorer?

Year 1 (Year 1) on: Year 1's Blog

So tonight Year 1 became explorers! We packed our bag, made maps and sandwiches, assembled in the hall and then went outside to explore school's polar landscape! And it was a lot of fun! How many penguins and polar bears did you find? Did you use your torch? What was your favourite part of being an explorer?


What special people are there at Church?

Year 1 (Year 1) on: Year 1's Blog

As part of our Come and See topic this term called 'Special People' we have thought about all the special people around us, in our community and at church. Today we were very lucky to be joined by Nicole from Year 5. She is an altar server at St. Josephs church and she told us all about what she does and what other special people are in church. Thank you Nicole. 

Can you make snow?

Year 1 (Year 1) on: Year 1's Blog

Well some of us tried, and had a lot of messy fun!


Are you a polar explorer?

Year 1 (Year 1) on: Year 1's Blog

We've started our new topic this week and have learnt how to locate the North and South Pole on a map, we've learnt the continents of the world and we've explored what Tom, 'The Great Explorer' might have seen in the Arctic. 


Have you ever used a hammer?

Year 1 (Year 1) on: Year 1's Blog

We've been using tools and learning about levers this topic. To finish our learning, we've used a hammer, nails and ribbon to create a lovely piece of class art.

We hosted our annual Winter Wonderland this evening. Our creative children and the friends of our school produced some amazing merchandise to sell.
