Year 1

Welcome to Year 1 - The Polar Bears



Trixie the Fairy Penguin


We have had some very interesting letters from Trixie the Fairy Penguin over the last few weeks. A penguin wrote to us from Sydney Australia and asked us to help find her missing watch. Luckily, we found it in the lunch hall - we think that when she visited she was trying to get hold of the fish fingers in the kitchen!


She was very pleased to have her watch returned to her and sent us an letter back with a photograph of her and her siblings. We even had the chance to phone her and ask some questions about what life is like as a Fairy Penguin!


Christmas Celebrations

The children had great fun in the last few days of term celebrating Christmas and Wellbeing Day. Lots of crackers, entertainment, biscuits to ice and general merriment! 

The Gunpowder Plot


We had a great day at the beginning of November learning all about the Gunpowder Plot. We spent the morning learning and writing about the story, then in the afternoon we took part in a range of activities, including firework kebab making, using our computing skills to complete a quiz all about The Gunpowder Plot, drawing and colouring pictures, telling the story using puppets and ordering the story using pictures and captions. We also spent some time getting crafty with the glitter glues to create some incredible firework pictures.

Chocolate Apples


Polar Bears have been learning how to write instructions. They learned how to make a jam sandwich and could recite the instructions out loud. We had a go at making a chocolate apple before writing instructions for someone who had never made them before. The Polar Bears enjoyed getting a little messy and of course tasting a little chocolate. The smell was incredible!



Our new Polar Bears for 2023 - 2024 have settled in brilliantly and we are very impressed with their progress already! Well done all!

We are especially enjoying our new art lessons with Mrs Chamberlain. Have a look at our Leaf Man pictures ....
