Challenge Champions!

This week, we were set the task of becoming Challenge Champions. Each week, there will be 5 challenges available to complete in the classroom and we have to complete them to collect dots on our trophy. At the end of the week the person (or people) with the most points will win a special prize! We would love it if our grown ups asked how many challenges we have completed so far!

Challenge Champions!

Write Now Focus Week

This week we travelled to Neverland and learned all about Peter Pan and his home. We looked at and described the Mermaid Lagoon, The Jolly Roger and The Lost Boys' Hideout. We had a fantastic time making props from the story and learned how to mix colours when we painted our salt dough maps of Neverland.

Christmas Party

We had a very exciting afternoon today with our KS1 Christmas party. We loved dressing up and showing off our party clothes and showed off some killer dance moves in the hall. We played musical statues, pass the parcel and corners then headed down to our classroom to eat all the wonderful food you so generously brought in. Thank you so much, we had such a feast that we'll be eating it for the rest of the week!

Christmas With The Aliens

All of the Year 1 teachers are very proud of our little performers! The children worked so hard learning their lines and the songs and put on an amazing show. Well done Year 1 and thank you to parents for sending in some fabulous costumes.

Pudsey Parish Church

We had a lovely morning on our visit to the church. Although the ice stopped us in our tracks, when we got there we learned all about the Christmas story and got to make some lovely pictures and crafts. We made a kindness chain and each wrote the name of someone we want to be kind to this Christmas.

Design Technology

This half term, we have been designing and making hand puppets. We decided to link our puppets to The Gingerbread Man and the first step we took was to think about what they might look like and sketch our ideas. Later, we used our Science knowledge to decide on a suitable material. We decided to use felt and had such a great time making the puppets. Take a look at our finished products.

Around The World Focus Week

The children had an amazing time this week travelling all over the world. They visited Jamaica, New Zealand, India, Japan and Kenya. As well as learning some facts about each country, the children had the opportunity to explore music, dance, art and food technology.

Save the Gingerbread Man!

We have been learning the story of the Gingerbread man and were not happy that he got gobbled up by the fox! Today, we looked at different materials and investigated which ones we could use to help keep the Gingerbread man dry when crossing the river. We had such an amazing day full of questions, predicting and explaining.

Here are the 3D shapes that I know....

In Maths, we have been learning to recognise and name 3D shapes in different contexts and have begun to think about their properties. We used sweets and cocktail sticks to build pyramids and used our knowledge of vertices and edges to work out how many of each we needed.

Anti-Bullying Odd Socks Day

Today, we were thinking about what makes us different. We enjoyed wearing our odd socks and talking about our similarities and differences. We made a class jigsaw which showed how different pieces can slot together to make one amazing picture. Thank you so much for your amazing posters too! ALL DIFFERENT, ALL EQUAL.

Anti-Bullying Odd Socks Day
Bonfire Night

As well as the Literacy learning we did around Guy Fawkes and Bonfire Night, some of the children got creative and made some lovely firework pictures using chalk and black paper.

Focus Week- The FInal Frontier

5, 4, 3, 2, 1... BLAST OFF This week, NASA visited school and passed on some top secret information about a new solar system. Each year group received a box of research and it was our job to think about what the planet and its inhabitants might be like. We have had a great week using Plasticine, natural materials and making collages in Art and have used our imaginations to write some amazing captions about our planet and aliens.
