This week Olive Class celebrated Outdoor Learning Day. Olive Class took their science lesson outside to look for signs of Autumn in the playground.
Olive Class have been busy readers this term. We love sharing books with our Buddy Readers from Palm Class on a Friday afternoon and we really enjoyed visiting the school library to choose our own book to share with a friend.
To celebrate National Outdoor Learning Day 2018 Year 1 took their science lesson outside to carry out a leaf hunt. We found lots of different leaves and used our tree identifying chart to find out which tree the leaf came from. We found Pine leaves, Cheery tree leaves, Horse Chestnut leaves and Sycamore leaves.
Year 1 were so lucky today to have a guest speaker come into the classroom to teach us all about Hinduism; our RE topic this half term. Nahbi was very impressed with Year one’s subject knowledge and thought their questions were very thought provoking!
He showed us a Puja tray, played a conch shell and did some relaxing meditation.
Well done to year 1 for making delicious salads this week. They wrote their shopping lists, drew a design and learnt how to use a knife safely when cutting. Take a look at their hard work!
All the children in Year 1 are very excited about their upcoming class assembly. It will take place on
Friday 27th April at 9.15 am in the hall.
The children have been practicing so hard this week and can’t wait to show you all of the wonderful things they have been learning this year.
This week Year 1 have been learning how to write clear instructions using time conjunctions and bossy verbs. In science they have been planting their own bean plants and will write a set of instructions to show Nursery how to be great gardeners too.
To celebrate National Science week, Year 1 had an amazing visit from Wild Science Animal Workshops.
The children were so brave meeting lots of different kinds of animals and some even touched some very creepy crawlies. They showed a lot of courage and I was very proud of them all.
Year 1’s class trip to The London Wetland Centre was an amazing success. The children had so much fun learning all about different birds and ducks. They loved walking around the marshes, playing in the adventure playground and even met Father Christmas!!!!
In January The Hobgoblin Theatre Company visited our school to perform ‘The Frog Prince’. Nursery, Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 were lucky enough to watch the performance and take part in a drama workshop afterwards.
The children really enjoyed the performance and they were extremely keen to participate in the workshop! The children had lots to say about the performance afterwards:
“I liked the part when the princess couldn’t remember the magic word and she thought it was potatoes!”
“I liked it when the frog turned into the Prince because it was crazy and magical”
“I liked the bit when the frog was eating the food and it disappeared and he threw the plate on the floor”
