Welcome Back!
What a busy first week! There have been lots of things to remember and new routines to learn. Everyone has worked really hard and settled quickly into their new classes. Well done.

Autumn Term 1 2017
This half term our topic is called Memory Box. We are starting our topic by meeting
twin baby girls. 

Maya and Leah came to visit us to help us learn about what babies need and how they grow. The girls enjoyed drinking their milk and were very well behaved! 

Autumn Term 1 2016

Our topic for this half term was Animals around us. We thought about lots of different animals including pets and working animals.We read lots of stories about animals including  the Hungry Cat books, Mog and the Vee Ee Tee and AArgh Spider!
Our science was based around learning about the 5 senses and in Outdoor Games we worked on improving our football skills.

The Year 1 Autumn Workshop took place in October. Lots of grown -ups came to help and we had a great time tasting different kinds of bread, making harvest mice puppets and using Autumn colours to decorate hedgehogs.

We had good news just before half term holiday when Mrs Hutchesson and Miss Morgan's classroom was finally dried out and a new carpet laid. The classroom would be ready for us when we came back to school after the holiday.
