Florence

Y1B went on a trip to the Thackray Museum. We had a great time learning all about Florence Nightingale and what she did to change medicine and hospitals. We even pretended to go to the Crimean War to save a soldier. It was great fun.

NEWS FLASH

We became real news and weather reporters throughout the week. We reported on all the crazy things going on in school and about the hunt for the Gold Man.

NEWS FLASH.....Real Journalist

A Big Thank you to Samantha Yule for coming into our class and teaching us how to be a real journalist. All staff and children loved hearing about her job role and used top tips throughout the week to report our own news. Thank you Samantha!

NEWS FLASH

During News flash focus week children across school solved the mystery of the gold man. On Monday the man appeared in assembly and threw gold paper and glitter all over Mrs Barnes. Throughout the Week the Gold Man made various appearances and left clues in the classroom. Children in year one became real journalists making notes each day which resulted in them writing a news report at the end of the week. Children also reported the weeks events in our own news studio.

Spaceships

In DT we designed and made spaceships for our aliens to fly to another galaxy. We thought carefully about design features and use of colour.

Art!

We designed and made our own animals and creatures to live on Pandora. They are all strange and different full of magical powers and interesting features. We made our creatures by sculpting and manipulation plastercine.

Pandora

We have been learning all about Pandora in literacy. Its a magical planet full of strange creatures, weird plants and beautiful scenery. We used our senses to explore and describe the setting. We had a special delivery from the scientists on Pandora of things to smell and describe. Some smells were wonderful, some smells were disgusting!!
