“Wonderful Wildlife”

SHARING THE PLANET: Human actions affect wildlife.

Friday 8th February

Year 1 went to visit Year 2 to hear the stories that they had written about mythical creatures. The afternoon was thoroughly enjoyed by all!

Wednesday 6th February

Last week we wrapped up warm and went outside to look for animal homes. We looked high and low and saw birds and lots of minibeasts. The children were very excited moving logs, peering into bushes and looking into deep dark holes. They were all wondering what would live in there: ‘It’s a spiders home.’ ‘This is a bunnies house down here.’ ‘I can see a birds nest high up in the tree.’
There was lots of discussion about where the animals make their homes and how.
Later on that day, we were really pleased to see a crow feeding on the bird feeder which the children had made at the start of the week.

In Year One we followed instructions to make fat balls to feed the birds.


We then hung them outside for the birds to eat. We are looking forward to seeing which birds will come and eat the bird food.

24th January 2019

Elm class had an amazing time looking at different creatures that we might find in the woodlands and learning about their features. We were super brave and open-minded when touching animals we were scared of!

10th January 2019

Elm class went out into the the woods – they had great fun looking at microhabitats to search for minibeasts and enjoyed using magnifying glasses to look at the creatures in petri dishes.

WHERE WE ARE IN TIME AND PLACE: Significant events and people shape our life.

Wednesday 12th December

Year 1 have been making repeating patterns in Maths – ensuring the pattern is finished; there are photos of a car race we had in the classroom which enabled us to learn ordinal numbers and draw conclusions about the participants; there are 2 photos of the children using Modroc on a stick to learn about how a broken limb could be plastered; and finally some of the children wearing crowns they made after learning about Queen Victoria and Elizabeth.



Trench making

Both Elm and Oak worked together to dig a trench. We found it really tricky and messy but we learnt lots about how the men from WW1 must have felt.

Florence Nightingale Visits Year 1

In Year One we had a visit from Florence Nightingale. We learnt all about her family and childhood. We had to learn a dance.

Florence told us about how dirty hospitals were and we imagined we were in hospital.

We were asked to travel to Scutari to help Florence look after the wounded soldiers. The journey took two weeks and we had to travel by train, boat and horse and cart. When we arrived in Scutari the hospital was filthy so we had to clean the hospital and look after the wounded soldiers.
