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!
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!
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.
