To begin our topic ‘Once Upon A Time’ we visited the magical Wonderland in Telford. We saw lots of things from a number of familiar fairy tales such as; The Three Bear’s cottage, the Gingerbread house and the Big Bad Wolf. We even got lost in ‘Alice in Wonderland’s’ crazy maze! (We did get out after a while).
This week 1A had their Inspire Workshop where lots of 1A’s parents came and listened to the story called ‘We’re Going on a Bear hunt’ by Michael Rosen and Helen Oxenbury. The children then shared their own version of the story called ‘We’re Going on a Bat Hunt’ which their parents thoroughly enjoyed. They also made animal puppets and designed different scenes and made their own animal hunt.
A very big thank you to all the parents who came.
Year 1 have been really busy this week celebrating Diwali and Bonfire night. They have learned all about the story of Rama and Sita and made Rangoli pattern from different types of lentils to mark this special celebration.
Also as part of their History lesson they have learned about The Gunpowder plot and they made super firework pictures using different coloured chalks.
They used lots of recycled materials such as bottles, tissue rolls, boxes and cartons. Also alot of glue and sticky tape.
We all had a fabulous time, especially the men and 1A would like to say a BIG THANK YOU to everyone for coming to school today.
1A have been working really hard since the start of term and have been awarded 100 marbles. Their reward was an extra playtime which they all enjoyed.
After our fabulous trip to Twycross Zoo last week, Year One painted some of the animals that they had seen.
