Welcome to Class 8
We have started our new topic learning all about superheroes and our super bodies! We have created our own superhero identities and our new Superhero Headquarters has opened! We have been asking questions about the human body and practised our measuring using objects around the classroom.
Our Christmas Party!
Christmas has begun in Year 1! We have been getting stuck in with lots of Christmas challenges. Take a look at our festive Lego models. Can you guess what they are? We have also been building igloos out of straws and getting stuck in with some Christmas maths challenges. We have been solving subtraction number sentences to reveal secret pictures!
We have enjoyed wearing our Christmas jumpers to raise money for Save the Children.
We have been busy using clay to make our dragons. Take a look!
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!!
POP! WHIZZ! BANG! ZOOM! ZAP!
We have had a fun filled bonfire themed day in Class 8! We read The Gunpowder Plot story and learnt all about Guy Fawkes. Have a look at all the activities we got up to including listening at the sounds fireworks make and performing our own firework displays in our role play area. We also made our own Class 8 firework by filling a jar with water, glitter and swirly pipe cleaners. We liked watching the bottle shake and the glitter move like fireworks.
Cardboard Box Castle
We have worked really hard making our class castle out of cardboard tubes and boxes. The castle looks fantastic and some knights have already moved in!
Our First Weeks in Year 1
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.
