Year One have worked so hard this half term… All of the staff are so proud of how amazing they have been settling back into school life and throwing themselves into their learning. We have been extremely lucky to be able to regularly visit the Outdoor Classroom, this has helped to inspire our learning and is something the children have really enjoyed.
A big well done to our Year 6 pupils for all their hard work in swimming this year. We’re really proud of their achievements!
This week all of the Year 1 classes went on their first school trip to Whitwell. Everyone involved had a great time going on the bus and enjoyed our activities (river dipping and den building). Thank you to all of the parents who gave up their time to help out!!
Last week the children created clay models of themselves holding welcoming messages as part of our work looking at refugees. This was inspired by the Norwich 2040 Figurine Partnership Project. Each class was also visited by a very special guest… A canary!! We learned about the history of canaries, where they came from and why they are a symbol of Norwich.
This week we have been reading Plant Facts by Izzi Howell in our reading lessons. Today we sketched different images of plants, thinking about all the knowledge we had learned in our reading.
Year 1 got to enjoy this AMAZING show this afternoon. Treasure Island was performed in the school hall today. It was great to have them back to some normality and enjoying what the school can offer. They all sat beautifully and really enjoyed the performance.
Year 1 have enjoyed writing about what they would like to do in the Summer holidays this year. All of the staff were so proud with all the amazing ideas and writing the children produced.
Les Grenouilles class have been reading the poem ‘Chocolate Cake’ by Michael Rosen. We then followed a recipe to make our own in the cookery room.
On Monday in maths, we were learning to share into equal groups using pizza toppings.
