  • Where Castles were built and how that helped to protect the kingdom.
  • The lives and achievements of Queen Elizabeth II and Queen Victoria
  • Comparing the lives and achievements of Queen Elizabeth II and Queen Victoria
  • King Charles III and the changes we will see as a result of his accession to the throne.

Year One Curriculum Evening Presentation

We learnt all about air raid sirens and we even had a go at making our own and responding to the siren.

We had a great Forest School session. We even had a go at starting our own fire.

Today we had the fire service come in to visit. They taught us how to stay safe and what to do in an emergency.

We had a race to see who could dress up as a fire fighter the quickest!

Today we had a very special visitor come in and tell us all about WW2. We had such a fun time, we even got to wear some WW2 costumes.

We had a great last day celebrating Christmas as a class. We followed a trail of tinsel and met reindeer and saw Father Christmas at the end.

We have loved decorating our classroom for Christmas.

We had a great trip to the woods.

We enjoyed drawing the signs of Autumn on the playground.

On Monday we found a large present for Year 1. It was a giant crown and the smartest giant in town needed our help to write instructions to make a crown for King Charles. We all made our own crowns and wrote instructions of how to make one.

Children in Need.

In forest school today we made dens for wooden people and used mirrors to look at the sky.

We loved den building, knot tying and playing games during Forest School today.

This week was Arts Week and we have been learning all about Diwali! In art we have been designing our own mehndi, rangoli and diva lamps. In music we have been learning all about Indian drumming and composing our own music. In PE we were lucky and had some visitors in to teach us Indian dancing!

We loved our parents coming in to paint our diva lamps.

We loved our dance workshop. We retold the story of Rama and Sita through dance.

We clapped rhythms.

We enjoyed creating our own Rangoli patterns.

We enjoyed forest school today making lots of yummy meals in the mud kitchen.

We had a great PE lesson. We climbed on the wall bars and we made different shapes.

We came in after break time on Monday and found that the classroom was a mess. We think it was a wild thing! So we spent the week learning more about the story where the wild things are and even acted out the story with our friends.

We had a fantastic trip to the woods. We looked around the wood# for signs out autumn.

We had a great PE lesson where we took part in gymnastics and practising the different shapes we can make.

This week we were shocked to see that someone had eaten Miss Wheeler’s and Mrs Burch’s cake. Miss Wheeler remembered a story all about a very hungry dragon who we think may have eaten the cake.

We had a great Forest School afternoon.

We had an amazing trip to Porchester Castle!

Today we had a great first forest school session.

This week we have used our discovery time to learn even more about Castles. We have shared stories about castles and even had a go at building our own.

We have had a fantastic first week in Squirrel class. This week has been belonging week and we have worked as a class to decide our class rules and learn all about what being in Squirrel Class is like.
