Year 1 had a great Sports Week this week. Enjoy the photos and all the children worked so hard and made a fantastic effort!!
We had a star jump challenge of how many star jumps the children could do in one minute - the highest number was 58.
We also did a running and jumping race and long jump.
A wonderful but tiring Sports Week!!!
Exploring Light and Dark Through Shadow Puppet Theatres- Summer Term A
This term the children have been exploring light and dark. They have become wonderful experimenters and investigators, making predictions and discovering lots of new things about how to make shadows.
The children have worked especially hard on creating their own shadow puppet theatres. This has been done in their independent Bright Idea time. The children have shown excellent team working skills, listening to one another's ideas, taking turns and helping one another. They have also shown fantastic problem solving skills.
Please enjoy these photos of their work.

Welcome back to school and into your Year 1 classroom!
Hello all, we are so looking forward to welcoming you into your new classroom and getting to know you.
We understand that coming back to school will be both exciting and perhaps worrying for some. We will be reminding ourselves about how to keep each other safe through regular handwashing and remembering to use tissues if we need to cough or sneeze.
We will spend time learning and talking about our feelings, and have lots of time to reconnect with our friends who we have missed so much.
Our topic this term is Carnival. We will look at the world famous Notting Hill Carnival and learn about the people who take part, the food, costumes and music. We will also think about Carnivals that are local to us.
