Tea Party

Hi all!

Thank you once again for all your donations and attendance at our tea party!  We had a spectacular time and the feedback was wonderful1

I promised you photos on the blog this evening but I haven’t had a second to sit at the computer so I will endeavour to upload them tomorrow so you have them ready for the weekend.

Many thanks once again,

Mrs Toms & the year 1 team

History- The Plague

Year 1 have been learning about the Plague and how it affected the people of London!

We learned about the boils and fevers people experienced if they caught the plague.  It sounds really gory and gruesome but the children loved learning about it!

We downloaded a picture of a plague doctor in their special outfits and used the Puppet Pals app to crop the picture.  We recorded our voices and pretended to be the plague doctor.  Here are some of our videos!I

Year 1 help Queen Elizabeth !


Year 1 have been communicating with Queen Elizabeth II this week!  She sent them a video to tell them that her jewels had been stolen.  We wrote a list of questions to help her guards find the criminal and they managed to track down clues that led them to the notorious thief, Emily Bandit! We wrote and recorded news reports about the incident! 


Year 1 have been measuring time and using the correct vocabulary. ¬† We held races and decided who came first and last. ¬†Two children recorded the time in seconds on a stop watch and we found the difference between the runner’s times to find out how many seconds faster the winner was. ¬†We counted on from the smallest number up to the biggest number to find the difference.

Our trip to the country park

Hi all,

We had a busy day at the country park looking for different minibeasts and plants.  We really enjoyed ourselves and, as always, our children were a credit to both their schools and family.

We hope you enjoy our pictures.

Outdoor Learning!

Hi all!  Chestnut class have been busy outside for outdoor learning!

We started the day with PE outside and had a 5-a-side football match.  Then we had maths and learned about quarters using natural objects and drawings on the floor.  After lunch, we wrote about a diary of a spider and acted out our day outside as a spider.  Then we drew trees from observation using charcoal pieces.  Chestnut Class finished the day with their pebble treat of extra Golden Time.  Well done to everybody who worked hard in Chestnut Class to earn pebbles for their jar.  We are building up to our next treat of a water fight on the field when the weather is much, much warmer!  Good luck Chestnut Class!
