During Collective Worship the children talked about what things they use at home to make themselves feel better. "I hug my hamsters cage" said Abeer. "I give my mum a hug" said Annayya. "I go upstairs and play with my toys" said Ifrah. "I give my teddy a hug" said Talal. " I wipe my tears and go to sleep" said Aseeb.
Year One's Spring topic is "Bright lights, Big City" all about London. The children dressed up smartly for a Royal Tea party at our school and were very privileged to have a surprise visit from her Majesty the Queen. Everyone had to stand up when Her Majesty walked in and when the children met the Queen, the boys had to bow and the girls courtesied. The children had the opportunity to ask Her majesty questions. We learnt lots of facts about the Queen.
As part of Friendship day Year One children made friendship bracelets to give to their friends. The children also wrote about what is a good friend.
As part of the Express stage of the Cornerstones topic Memory Box, 1S children went to RB to show the family trees that the children had made as part of their homework project. The children talked about members of their families and RB children were encouraged to say something nice about the children's work. Well done 1S!
We learnt how to cross the road safely and that we need to use booster seats in the car. We also discussed that the grown up driving the car should not be using a phone or smoking. We also learnt about the people who help to keep us safe on the roads.
Children in Need
To help raise for Children in Need we paid money to come dressed in spotty clothes. We had a danceathon and we had a competition to find who could draw the best picture of Pudsey.
This half-term our Cornerstones topic is Memory Box. We will be learning about ourselves and our families.
As part of the develop stage of our Cornerstones topic on Memory Box, Year One wrote invitations to the parents for the Teddy Bears picnic. The children designed their own sandwiches and then on the picnic day , they assembled their sandwiches with the help of their parents. The children then ate their sandwiches and evaluated their sandwich. It was great to see so many mums and dads come for the picnic.
For the engage stage of the topic we brought in photographs of ourselves as babies. Can you guess who the lovely babies are?
