On Wednesday 21st June we went on a visit to Temple Newsam. In the morning we looked around the farm and played in the play area. By lunch time we were really hungry. After lunch we went in the house. We explored the house. The rooms had lots of interesting things to look at. We did some drama, music and dressing up using the traditional story The Princess and the Pea. It was an amazing day.
For our holiday homework we had to do some research for our new topic, Castles and Dragons. Look at all the amazing things we did. We are really proud of our work.
We loved going to the food tech room to make Yorkshire Fat Rascals. They are a bit like a scone with cherries for eyes and almonds for teeth. We took the them home to share with our families, they were delicious!
The whole school are sharing a topic this half term. It is called Proud to be from Yorkshire. For our holiday homework we did some research to get ready for our learning. Look what we found out.
Today it was Red Nose Day. We came to school wearing red clothes. At playtime we had a bun sale, the buns were delicious! After play we went to the Hall to do our sponsored dance. It was great fun!
In RE we learnt about why a menorah is very important for Jewish people. Do you like the way we decorated our menorahs?
On Sunday it is Mothers' Day. We have made some fantastic handbag cards to give to our mums. We hope they will like them.
We came to school dressed as our favourite book characters. Didn't we look fantastic!
We enjoyed learning about Chinese New Year. Here we are getting ready for our class assembly.
This week we have read Seashore by Lucy Bowman. Today we learnt to play a new game called Tell Me More to share the information we have learnt. First we read a question to our partner. If they did not know the answer they said Tell me more. So we told them the answer then told them another fact in the Did You Know section. Then we listened to our partnerís facts and swapped cards. After that we found someone to share the information with.
Our new topic is called Be Careful of the Rocks! For our holiday homework we researched, wrote, created and made all sorts of things about lighthouses and the sea. Mrs Habergham thinks they are amazing.
We had a fantastic time at our Christmas party. We enjoyed dancing, playing pass the parcel and eating a special party tea. Later on an important visitor came and left us some presents!
Today was Remembrance Day. We came to school dressed as doctors, nurses, soldiers and evacuees to commemorate the day. In the afternoon we practised our cutting skills making poppies to take home.
For our half term homework we found out about penguins. We made models, posters and leaflets to show what we learnt. Our classroom looks amazing with all our fantastic work.
"It's better than playing!" said Aimee. Today we did a science investigation. Poor Mr Noah was getting wet feet. He wanted us to help him find out which materials would be waterproof so he could make some boots. We tested 3 different materials by putting them on a doll's foot and placing the doll in water for 10 seconds. We talked about how we would keep the test fair. We found out that plastic is waterproof. All of us, especially Aimee enjoyed this science investigation lesson!
Our first class target was to keep our cloakroom tidy. We have followed Habit 1 Be Proactive, making sure we are responsible for putting our own pumps in our pump bags and hanging up our coats without being asked. We quickly achieved this target so here we are enjoying our reward on a very sunny afternoon.
Matisse class performed The Enormous Turnip song. We really enjoyed our singing and acting. Look at the amazing displays of food. Some of it was grown in the raised beds, in the orchard and in the wildlife area here at school. We all brought in gifts of food for the Bradford Central Food Bank.
On Friday 23rd September Year One visited Yorkshire Wildlife Park. We had a fantastic day learning about all sorts of different wild animals. We saw animals from Australia, Asia, Africa, North America and South America. Which is your favourite?
On the first day of term Sasha and Lily found a caterpillar in the playground. We looked carefully at it and thought about what it would need to stay alive. We decided to put it in Nursery garden. Can you spot it in the photos? Whereabouts did Aimee and Riley put it? We hope it changes into a beautiful butterfly.
