Welcome to Class 1!
In science this half term we have been learning all about floating and sinking. We chose five different items from around the classroom and made predictions about whether we thought they would float or sink. Then we put the materials to the test to see if our predictions were correct! The children found it really interesting comparing the results to our predictions. Great work Class 1!
Early Years have been doing lots of baking this half term! They have made some delicious cakes that have been served with our school lunches and they also made some Irish soda bread as part of our St. Patrick's Day celebrations. Yum!
This half term Class 1 have been learning all about Spring. We have been busy planting and nurturing our own plants and learning all about how plants grow!
Class 1 had a wonderful day celebrating World Book Day! All of the children dressed up as their favourite character. We designed some book covers and wrote some super character descriptions. What a great day!
This half term our topic has been Under The Sea. We went on a trip to The Lakes Aquarium, where we learnt all about lots of different sea creatures! We also learnt about some of the different animals that we might find in our local area, and we were taught some simple steps that we can take to help protect these animals! What a fabulous day out!
Class 1 have been making the most of this exciting weather! We have had a wonderful time working as a team to build an igloo and some snowmen! We also went on an exploration walk around our forest area, using some amazing adjectives to describe the changes that the snow has brought. We then used these ideas as a basis for our writing, great work Class 1!
Class 1 enjoying some paired reading with the older children!
Class 1 love learning outdoors. We are so lucky to have our very own school forest area!
