Environmental Superheros meet Forest School

Today in Year One we had an exciting morning…we became ‘Environmental Superheros’. We had a taster forest school session with Colette and Caroline which involved us:
Making bird feeders
Designing bug hotels
Planting seeds
Planting trees
Making and throwing seed bombs
Making homes for animals to move into
We had a fun and mucky time!!!! We wish we could do this every day!Thank you Mrs Evans for organising it.

Brilliant Broad Beans

What a lovely surprise this morning when Holly brought in an enormous broad bean to show everyone. She told us that this has grown from the broad bean seeds that we planted at school in the spring term. Well done Holly! She also brought in lovely big radishes that her dad had grown in his garden for everyone to taste. They were delicious as you can see from the pictures! Thank you to Holly and her dad.

A blast from the past!

Last week Florence Nightingale appeared out of nowhere. She had taken a wrong turn down the hospital corridor and found herself in our classroom. We were all very shocked and surprised but found out lots of interesting facts and stories about her. We also asked her interesting questions.

Did you know… Florence Nightingale was born in Florence on the 12th May 1820.

This term Year One have been learning about ‘Superhero’s’ (significant people)¬†during our topic lessons . They have been finding out lots of information about Neil Armstrong.
Did you know…
Neil Armstrong got his first pilot licence in 1945.
They planned and made rockets ready to be launched. Using a special rocket launcher they tested and recorded in metres how far their rockets could go!
What a blast they had!

Traction Man has escaped!

Breaking news in Year One this morning!…Traction Man has escaped from his box! The children were all eager to find him but slightly worried as to where he disappeared to. After searching the classroom he was found climbing up the beanstalk… Was he going to defeat the Giant? Who knows?

Year One’s VERY Royal Party

What an exciting afternoon in Year One today! We celebrated the Queen’s 90th Birthday with a special outdoor party in the sun. We became kings and queens with our home made tiaras and crowns. We sang happy birthday and gave 90 ‘posh’ claps. To finish our party we enjoyed birthday cake and juice. Happy Birthday to the Queen!
