The children have been very busy this afternoon using different techniques to explore clay. They have used skills including rolling, cutting, moulding and carving to create some amazing owls! Well done 1ZR you did an excellent job.
We have had a magical day celebrating being less than a week away from Christmas! The children have enjoyed dancing with their friends, playing party games, and of course meeting the main man himself, Santa!!
I would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a happy and healthy 2018. I look forward to seeing you all in January and hearing all about the wonderful time spent with family and friends. Mrs Rawle xx
What a brilliant afternoon we have had making some wonderful quilled Christmas cards. We hope that you all enjoyed spending time creating memories with your children, and of course listening to them singing some of their favourite Christmas carols. The countdown to Christmas is on!!!
Christmas Dinner Day!
After hearing all about the children's snow-filled adventures over the past few days, it was lovely to see the children really getting into the festive spirit. As the children arrived, it was so wonderful to see their fabulous Christmas jumpers (I must admit, I was quite jealous of the flashing jumpers in particular )! We began by writing our very important letters to Santa, with not only our wish list for which toys we would like, but also our wish to help people who may not be as lucky or as fortunate as us. I'm sure Santa is going to be extremely impressed with how well the children in Year 1 can write!
After all of that writing, we then set to work creating our very own party hats. We chose a design that we would like and then decorated it, using all things Christmassy! We couldn't wait to wear them for our special dinner. Finally, to finish off the day, we created a wreath to hang up at home. The children have thoroughly enjoyed listening to Christmas songs all day, enjoying time with their friends, singing, and even a little bit of dancing! What a wonderful day we have had!
Exploring Non-Fiction texts
This week in Literacy, we will be exploring non fiction texts and discussing the differences between these and fiction texts, before writing our own information leaflet about Florence Nightingale. Today we were detectives and had to investigate the features of a non fiction text. We all enjoyed having the opportunity to read a range of different books and share these with our friends. Mrs Rawle agreed that we made super detectives as we managed to find all of the different features!
