Welcome to Class 7
Christmas has begun in Year 1! We have been busy doing Christmas challenges. Take a look at our festive Lego models. We enjoyed wearing our Christmas jumpers whilst eating our Christmas dinner and we have collected lots of money for Save the Children.
Our trip to Tamworth Castle
We had a very exciting day at Tamworth Castle. We visited the servant and helped her lay the table for the Lord and Lady of the castle. We also practised jousting in the great hall and had fun trying on the heavy suits of armour in the castle's armoury. One of our favourite parts was visiting the dungeon and then climbing up the narrow passageway to look out of one of the castle's arrow slits. We also climbed to the top of the tower. What a busy, busy day!!
We have worked really hard making our own castles out of cardboard tubes and boxes. The castles look fantastic!
We have had a busy first couple of weeks as Year Ones. We have started our topic on Castles and have had lots of fun writing, dressing up as knights and eating banquets in our new role play areas. We have also drawn castles and drawn ourselves as Kings and Queens! We started box modelling our castles this week and are excited to soon show you what we have made. Thank you for all your donations of cardboard tubes and boxes, they will make fantastic battlements and turrets. We also hope you enjoyed visiting our new classrooms on our reading and meet the teacher morning.
