Treasure Hunt

This week we have all been on a treasure hunt! A pirate appeared with a map for the Turtle class and there was a strange delivery for Dolphin class! Luckily we discovered the treasure hidden in the grounds of St Peter’s School using our developing understanding of language that describes direction.

The children have been working hard to perfect their parts for our Nativity play and we are really excited about sharing the finished performance with you all soon.

We are also looking forward to beginning the season of Advent with our visit to the Sacred Heart Church on Monday. We have been thinking about how we can prepare ourselves for Jesus and have made Advent promises.

Abacus Maths and Bug Club are being used by many children and are having a real impact on learning. Don’t forget to check weekly updates linked to in class learning.

Have a great weekend!

A Week of Remembering

Hello to all our children, parents, carers and grandparents,

In Year 1 this week, we have all been thinking about peace in our world.  The children have created poppies and prayers that reflect their respect for the people who have fought to protect us.

Their thoughts and reflections have been truly amazing.

We have also had our second Cinderella workshop and our art work is now complete and ready to be displayed in Hilliers Gardens, Romsey.  We are hoping to visit Hilliers in December so the children can see their fabulous work.

The children’s home learning reflects our respect for honouring the fallen soldiers as they design and create monuments.  They also need to continue to practise their letters and sounds and to use them in their writing.

Next week is Anti-Bullying week and once again we will be developing our understanding of encountering differences with respect.

Have a great weekend!

A Week of sparks and flames!

Another great week in Year 1. We have been using fireworks and Bonfire Night to inspire us in Art, Literacy, Maths, History and Geography as we investigated the origins of Bonfire Night and the children recognised and talked about The Houses of Parliament and who had seen it first hand.

We have also continued to develop our understanding of Traditional Tales through our workshops with The Mayflower Theatre. The children have begun to create a beautiful invitation display which will be exhibited at Hillier Gardens in Romsey during December.

This week our children will be encompassing Remembrance as we explore and develop our understanding of why we wear poppies each year, who we are thinking about and how these thoughts are important in our own spiritual journeys as we share a Remembrance Service together on Tuesday.
