Monday morning assembly – Woodland Trust

This morning, we started to get excited as a school about the impending arrival of 200 saplings from the Woodland Trust, which are due to be delivered during November.

We listened to the story of the ‘Man who planted trees’ and talked about the importance of trees and how we, as individuals, can make a difference to the world.

During November, we will be creating our own school woodland area on a section of the school field and the children, with the help of adults from the community, will have the opportunity to plant trees which we hope will be around for generations to come.

We are also excited to be working towards the ‘Green Tree Schools Award’ this year and have our sights set firmly on achieving platinum status!

 

A wonderfully windy week in Year One

We have worked really hard on our number formation this week and some of us are really getting the hang of it! Forming letters correctly will be the focus next week.

We experienced the wonderful season of Autumn first hand with the incredible wind and intermittent showers with sunshine. We couldn’t let the opportunity go by, so we had some time outside. We decided to collect up and play in our fallen leaves as well as doing a rain dance or two.

In English we have started to write captions from our class book and some children have shown off their beautiful handwriting skills!

Another busy week in Year One!
Have a lovely and rested weekend

A week in Year One

We have had a wonderful week in Year One with some very busy bees!

We started by having our launch day on Monday for our new learning area WEATHER WATCH. We explored different seasons and what we would expect to find during each season. In the afternoon we went out to explore the environment around us in the local area, we looked for clues that showed what season it was. We all decided it was definitely Autumn as we found conkers, acorns and fallen leaves.

We have danced our week away making our hand muscles strong and flexible skills during Playdough disco.

We have formed our numbers and practised writing capital letters for writing in lots of different ways and are really trying to work on writing these correctly.

We finished the week learning even more about Liberty bear and her adventures. She got up to mischief in the classroom making a jigsaw and has gone for her first weekend away!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Whole School Mass

Thank you to all of the children who volunteered to take a more active role in our first whole school mass of the year by offering readings, bidding prayers, presenting the offertory and altar serving.

It was a lovely way of celebrating the beginning of our new academic year together as one.

Thank you to all of our familes who were able to attend this morning. We hope you enjoyed the beautiful singing as much as we did.

Sports Day

Well done to all of the children who took part in today’s sports day. All of the activities were great fun and the children put in 100% despite the heat!

Special congratulations to Cana who won the Sports Day Cup!

Thank you all so much for coming to watch, support and cheer the children on, Thank you to the PTA for purchasing the much needed gazebos to provide us with a little shade. Thank you also to the staff who ran each station and of course, Mr Youson for organising such a fab event!

Conkers

Year 1 and Year 2 had a fabulous time at Conkers.

It was fun in the sun, the children enjoyed making natural postcards, building amazing dens, train rides,and climbing.

All the staff would like to say thank you to the helpers who gave up their time to join us. We would also like to say well done to the children, they were a credit to themselves and the school.

  

Just a few of the wonderful moments at Conkers.

Planting in Year 1

 

 

Children have planted beans as part of their science topic, Plants.

Each child will take responsibility for looking after their plant, ensuring it has everything it needs to grow. They will keep a diary of how their plant is doing and hopefully we will have lots of lovely beans by the end of the summer term.

What a way to start our day!

Well done to all of the members of Dance Club who helped to kick start our Wednesday morning with some fabulous performances. They performed a variety of dance routines with oodles of confidence and huge smiles, really entertaining us all!

Many thanks to Mrs Cooke for all of her hard work and thank you to all friends and family who were able to come along and show the children some support!
