Helping every child to flourish

Positive, Caring, Inclusive

Archive: Year 1: 2016-2017

On Tuesday we went to Rye Meads RSPB Nature Reserve. It rained all day but the children were troopers and we had great fun anyway! In the morning the children were plant detectives; looking for common wild plants, making comparisons between them and even creating their own stinky plant cocktail! They then spent the afternoon pond dipping and found all sorts of interesting creatures - definitely the favourite part of the day!
We have been busy carrying out investigations this week. In Maths we looked at the shape of numbers and tried to spot patterns and establish rules. In Science we made observations about Spring, including measuring the temperature, and investigated whether trees have the same parts as other plants.

We are so proud of the children's performance in our 'Dear Fairy Godmother' class assembly! The children spoke clearly and confidently and looked fantastic in their costumes. Thank you very much for all your support at home!

We had a fantastic time at the Chiltern Open Air Museum! The children were enthusiastic and engaged and didn't let the rain deter them! We started the day with a workshop learning about how people washed clothes in the Victorian times. Our favourite part was putting the tea towels through the mangle! After lunch we split into groups and explored the other buildings on the site. We compared the things we found with what we have now and enjoyed learning all about life in the past.

We have been exploring programming using Bee-Bots in our Computing lessons. We learnt how to write and de-bug algorithms and had fun sending the Bee-Bots on different journeys. Our biggest challenge was when we had to look at an algorithm and predict where it would send the Bee-Bot!

Visits from our grandparents!

We were lucky enough to have a visit from three of our grandparents. They told us about what life was like when they were growing up and we thought about what was similar and what was different. Thank you very much to the grandparents who came - we loved it!

The Year 6 E-Cadets visited our class to teach us about how to stay safe online

We have been using Google Earth to find our houses and map our route to school

On Friday we celebrated Remembrance Day. Have a look at some of our writing.

Our Trip to Tring Natural History Museum


We have had such a busy day! We are very proud of the children, they behaved brilliantly and were so inquisitive and engaged throughout the day. There were so many animals to look at and lots that we had never heard of! Ask your children to tell you about their favourites. We also did a workshop where we got to handle some animals and sort them into categories. I wonder if they can remember what kinds of animals are mammals, birds, fish, insects, reptiles and amphibians. We have learnt so much today! Take a look below at a few photos from our trip.

Here are some photos of our trip to Tring Natural History Museum!
