Elmer Talk For Writing

This week the children have been learning the story of Elmer. They used a text map and actions to retell the story. They will use the text map and actions to write their own Elmer story next week. Can your child tell you the story using their actions?

Grandparents Day

Our history topic this half term is history in living memory. In class we have a chest full of toys from the past. We have been learning how these toys work and we have loved playing with them. To help us learn about history, we asked grandparent volunteers to come and spend the morning with us. The children all wrote questions for the grandparents, to help them find out first hand, what life was like when their grandparents were younger. We were so lucky to have so many grandparents come into school and share their memories with us and answer the children's questions. After, we all completed a toy timeline together, trying to identify the oldest and youngest of the toys in the photographs. We would like to say a huge thank you to all our grandparents who came to help us on this morning!

Our First Few Weeks in Year 1

Over the last few weeks the children have been exploring their new classroom environment. We have indoor and outdoor provision that the children can access at given times. They have loved looking in the areas and they have loved completed the challenges we have set them. The children all brought in their 'all about me bag' and it was lovely to hear them speaking confidently about what they had chosen to bring into us and to hear them explaining why they chose that.
