The Bumble Bee's had a lovely Outdoor Learning session on Tuesday afternoon. They made cheerio bird feeders to take home and hang in the their gardens and also did some gardening with Mrs Eling!

We have had a fabulous time today at our Christmas party, the children were brilliant and enjoyed food, drinks, games and lots of dancing. There was even a visit from a very special visitor.............Father Christmas! Merry Christmas everyone. 

We went for a walk down to the church to see the Poppies we made for Remembrance Day - The church looked amazing! 

Year One had a brilliant time at the Wolds Gymnastics Club and really enjoyed their sessions there... A big thank you to all the coaches that helped us and taught us new things! 

We have been very creative during our outdoor learning sessions this term. We used different natural materials such as conkers, leaves, feathers, sticks and stones to make lots of animals. Here are some photos of some of them, can you guess what we made? We also did some gardening with Mrs Eling. She helped us to pick a pumpkin, plant some bulbs and make some bunches of lavender to take home, we hope you liked these.  

We are having a very exciting time in year one. Here is a list of things we have been doing

  1. A visit from the PCSOs.  The children all know how important it is to wear a helmet when out and about riding their bikes and scooters.  The children all sat in the back of the van and tried different police helmets on.
  2. Salt Dough handprints. As we continue with our topic about 'Ourselves' we have made an imprint of our hands in Salt dough which we are going to decorate and bring home. 
  3. Tasting in Science. We have been thinking about our senses in Science and in one lesson we learned about taste. The children tasted some different fruit and vegetables and thought of some adjectives to describe their taste and texture, there were some very funny faces when they tried the lime! 
  4. Fruit and Vegetable portraits. The children looked at the work of artist Giuseppe Arcimboldo who paints portraits using different fruts and vegetables to create the features.  We created our own using fruit and vegetables to print with. Who knew a rhubarb would make a good mouth?!

This week we have started to look at the story of Elmer. We looked at the colours and different patterns the other elephants wear on Elmer day. We each designed an Elmer and thought about how the colours make us happy. Here are a few photos to show our amazing designs. 

Year One

All the things below are what we did last year in Year One...

Keep checking back to see this Year's updates!

Year one had a brilliant time at Wolds Gymnastic Club. They used lots of the apparatus as well as as using their bodies to create different shapes and move in exciting ways. They all really enjoyed their time at the gym and all the year one team are very proud of them. 

The children has such a good day at Dalby Forest yesterday! We found the Gruffalo and the Highway Rat on the walk and they loved playing in the park! All the children behaved really well and we are all super proud of them! Well done Year 1!

The Bumble Bees has great fun acting out the story of Goldilocks and The Three Bears! Look at how well some of the children did....

The children have had a great afternoon with Sam's Safari. They brought in a snake, gecko, stick insect, frog, tortoise, hedgehog and a hissing cockroach! The children all got chance to hold or stroke the animals and they learnt all about where they come from and what they eat. It was such an enjoyable and educational afternoon for all the children and they were all very brave and loved every minute of it! 

On Monday 5th we became Mini Morris Dancers. Mrs Eling came in with her group of Morris Dancers and taught us a new dance. We got to dress up and use wavers to do the dancing.

The Bumble Bee class have had a great time outdoors today.

We were planting broad beans with Mrs Eling and can't wait to see them grow!

 We made some bird feeders with Miss Major and Mr Hogg. The children are excited to bring them home and hang them in their gardens.

The Year 1 children have become detectives this week!

At the beginning of the week we received a letter from the 'Fairytale Police' asking for our help. A creature has gone missing in Fairytale Land and they needed the children to help them find out what it was and then find the creature. The Police sent us a box and clues and the children think its a dragon that has gone missing! We have created character descriptions, made wanted posters and written letters to help the Fairytale Police!

The children have also started making their Dragon Sock Puppets and can't wait to bring them home at the end of the term!
