This afternoon, Year 1 had a wonderful discussion about road safety. We talked about how the traffic light system works and how to use pedestrian crossings. We also discussed the importance of, 'Stop, Look, Listen, Think!' We have promised to make sure that we remain safe near roads of any kind as we understand how dangerous and unpredictable they may be.
This term in Year 1 we will be taking part in weekly PE sessions with Wakefield Trinity members learning about the sport of rugby. Take a look at us in action!
This term our topic is World Kitchen. We went on an educational visit to Pizza Express in Harrogate. We learnt lots of interesting facts about pizza toppings and where certain pizza ingredients come from. We were each then given the chance to make our own delicious pizza. We enjoyed eating our creations at lunch.
Santa Claus is coming to town...
The Christmas season is always lots of fun in school! Today, we have been full of joy and feeling excited about decorating our classroom tree.
In respect of the 100 year anniversary of the vote for women, Year 1 discussed how it is important that we are all different but all equal. The children couldn’t believe that men and women have not always been equal, like we are today. In celebration of Vote 100, Year 1 iced suffragette biscuits and made posters to encourage equality.
Our topic this half term is Fire! We have had the privilege of receiving a visit from the West Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service. We got to watch the ladder on top of the fire engine reach up to 30 metres tall. We were able to sit inside the fire engine and try on the equipment, such as: oxygen masks, fire helmets and gloves. We learnt a lot from our special visitors and we thank them for coming to see us.
Children in Need
We have had a super time dressing in our spottiest clothes to support children and families less fortunate than ourselves. This fundraising day has taught us all about Children in Need and what it represents. Thank you all for your generous donations.
As part of Anti-Bullying week, KS1 and EYFS attended a special assembly to learn all about how we say no to bullying.
Our topic this half term is About Us. To learn more about ourselves and how our bodies function we organised a trip and visited Eureka! We had so much fun exploring the many galleries Eureka! had to offer. Year 1 enjoyed the Gross Lab science show the most. During this workshop, we had the opportunity to explore the science behind all the icky, sticky and yucky stuff our bodies do and why it is important. We learnt what happens when we cut ourselves, which organs are involved in the digestion process and the jobs they do, and why we need to burp and poop!
In indoor PE, we are doing gymnastics. We are learning how to create different shapes and levels using our bodies. Here we are perfecting our different star, tuck, dish and arch shapes.
