See below to find out what we have been learning
We have been extremely lucky to have welcomed Mr Harding into school with Cassie the dog and a snake! Lots of the children were keen to touch the snake and enjoyed the experience! Questions from the children were very interesting and they were able to extend their knowledge. Well done Year 1!
We were very luck to have the chance to see some musk turtles. We even got the chance to hold them. The children asked some really good questions and found out lots about how musk turtles live, how to care for them and what they eat.
Having fun in the snow!
Year One enjoyed dressing up in green clothes for 'Kindness Day' on Friday 9th February. They thought of lots of ways to show kindness to each other and the adults in school and at home. Some children made cards to give to their friends with a kind message inside, this really put a smile on their faces!
Recipe for Challah Bread
Prep:3hr › Cook:40min › Ready in:3hr40min
Seahorses and Angelfish enjoyed making Challah Bread as part of our learning about Shabbat (The Jewish Sabbath). We read the recipe, measured the ingredients, mixed the ingredients. Then we left the dough covered with a damp cloth. After lunch the dough had risen; so we kneaded it, rolled and plaited it. We put it in the oven and it was ready to eat just as we were ready to go home! It was delicious!
Have a look at the wonderful photographs below of Seahorses Arts Week, where we learnt about the inventor John Logie Baird. We created some stunning black and white art. Then used primary colours and mixed them to discover how to make other colours.
After listening to and joining in with the story of the 3 Little Pigs, the children worked with partners to create a house of either straw, sticks or bricks. The were also able to choose to make stick puppets of the characters. Later, we looked around the school grounds for materials used in buildings. We found wood, brick, stone, glass and metal. Unfortunately, we couldn't find anything made from straw-I wonder why?

Welcome back to our new year in Seahorses and Angelfish.
The children have settled into their new classes and routines beautifully! We are very proud of them and their attitude to their learning.
Please can you ensure children have their PE kits in school every day as we sometimes have to change our PE slots due to the weather or for other reasons such as trips-Thank you
Please can you also make sure the children have a coat in school each day as we try to go out each day even when it's raining!
Thank you for your support and we look forward to an amazing year!
