Year 1 enjoyed a visit from Mr Brown and Mrs Callaghan this morning as part of their Paddington's Space Mission topic. Children asked both adults lots of questions about the moon landing in 1969 and enjoyed listening to their answers. Some of the questions that the children came up with were fantastic! Thanks to both adults for their time and patience.
The children wrote letters to say thank you to our visitors!
 
   
 

Wow, what a great turnout Class 4 had! There were so many enthusiastic parents who joined us this morning for our PE session with Soccer 2000. Everybody had lots of fun working in teams bouncing footballs to make cones flip over and rolling tennis balls so that they hit the cones. Both children and parents were brilliant at both activities and earned lots of points, especially by getting the special orange cones. Well done everyone - a brilliant and fun start to the week!

Paddington's Space Mission is underway in Year 1. Children spent the afternoon making alien pictures and rockets.

Despite the miserable weather, Year 1 had a fantastic time at the Black Country Living Museum today. We braved the rain and had a walk around the museum where the boys were very polite and allowed the girls to enter the buildings first. We also enjoyed visiting St James's Infant school where the strict headmaster showed us what it would be like if we were at school in 1912. Children certainly prefer school in the 21st century after experiencing handwriting with hooks and hangers on a slate and having hand inspections. Before the end of the day, children were able to learn about toys from the past and had the opportunity to play with a wide range of old and modern toys. They were amazed to learn that poor children in the past would only have had one or two wooden toys to play with... if they were lucky!

  

We had a great turn out and children enjoyed showing their parents how they add and subtract using pictures, number tracks, number lines, apparatus and partitioning.  Thank you to all of the families involved. 

  

We all need a good friend! Year 1 have been thinking about what makes a good friend as part of anti-bullying week.

October 2019

Paddington has been visiting different countries in the UK and teaching us about each of them... can you guess which country he had been to this week? 

 

Year 1 were also investigating their sense of touch this week and were describing how different objects feel. They explored the objects in Paddington's suitcase by closing their eyes and touching each object. Alex even said "I hope there isn't a cactus in there!" 

Year 1 have been learning about instructions this week and they have had a great time following instructions on how to make a paper plate fish, a bracelet, a pirate hat and a picture puzzle. 

Some brilliant creative homework!

Year 1 children loved spending the afternoon with their dad, stepdad, uncle, granddad etc. this afternoon. They played phonics reading games, shared stories, designed front covers for books and even decorated gingerbread men together! Thank you so much to all who attended - the children loved it and it was great to see so many grown ups sharing in their children’s learning!

 

  

April 2019

On Monday and Tuesday we went on our trip to Weston Park as part of our Victorians topic. We had a fantastic day that was filled with activities. First, we made our very own cup and ball  that we decorated with bright colours. After that, we went on a walk around the grounds and saw Weston Hall. We saw a stone pineapple at the entrance and learnt that the Victorians often had pineapples around their homes to show people how wealthy they were. Next we played with Victorian toys outside, there were wooden hoops, skipping ropes, croquet, wooden skittles and quoits. Lunchtime came and we all ate our food together in the hall. In the afternoon, we dressed up in Victorian clothes, played with Victorian toys and learnt about Victorian nurseries. The children thoroughly enjoyed the day!

Year 1 had a fantastic time visiting the Think Tank in Birmingham. They learned all about the organs in their bodies by meeting Tommy the life size doll and opening him up inside. The children asked brilliant questions about the organs and some children even knew the function of certain organs. As well as the body workshop, children also spent time in the Kid City where there was plenty of opportunities of role play and construction. Children also loved visiting the science garden and had lots of fun on the car with square wheels and the giant hamster wheel! Children thoroughly enjoyed the day at the museum but they also enjoyed a little nap on the way home too!

As artists children have learnt about the work of Renoir and Monet. They have created their own ‘Waves’ painting, experimenting with tone, and different tools to create a 3D effect.

I'm sure you'll agree, they look amazing!
