Counting down to Christmas - we all added something to the food bank box during our 'reverse advent'
2019 Christmas Trip to Conkers. A fantastic day meeting Santa and Jingles the Elf.
In science we have been learning about how the changing seasons affects our local wildlife. Today we listened to a story about hibernation then we worked together to make warm, waterproof hedgehog homes.
We tested our homes by putting hot water bottle hedgehogs inside. We kept one hedgehog outside the nests to make a comparison. After break time we checked our hedgehogs and discovered that the ones in nests had slightly warmer tummies than the hedgehog without a nest. We're hoping that some real hedgehogs move into our nests soon!
Well done Class 1! Super singing, dancing and acting in our KS1 Christmas production A Little Bird Told Me.
Look out for our tuck, twist and star jumps included in our routine.
We have been learning about portraits in Art. The children have enjoyed experimenting with different styles including Picasso, Arcimboldo and Pop Art. We have created our own gallery in Class 1 with all the beautiful work.
Play and Learn - Class 1 enjoyed chatting about their families today and made some beautiful family trees. Thank you to all the parents that were able to come.
We had a lovely time today, meeting the animals and finding out about their special diets. Can you remember which animals were herbivores or carnivores? Did we meet any omnivores?
Class 1 have written some fantastic rainforest animal riddles this week. We have entered them in the Young Writers national competition Little Riddlers. Please feel free to come in and read their super writing and keep your fingers crossed for a winning entry.
Here we are practising our bike riding skills. Our instructor was very impressed with our concentration and progress. Well done Class 1!

World Book Day - Class 1 look fantastic in their book character costumes
Happy Mother's Day!
Class 1 have made yummy Gingerbread Mummy Biscuits and would like to wish all of their mums a Happy Mother's Day. Mrs Leiper would like to add that hands were well washed! We hope you enjoy them.
Today we were pleased to invite Anya Acres to read her new book "Ollie Discovers the Planets." The children listened really well and asked lots of questions. They even made suggestions for new Ollie adventures!
Class 1 had lots of messy fun as they experimented with a variety of printing techniques to create textured planets for our Space Topic display board.
Here is the finished result with collage, painting, printing and clay work. Great job Class 1!
