Christmas Jumper Day! Have a lovely break everybody!
12th and 13th December
The Y1 Christmas party and craft day were excellent! Thank you for all who contributed and came along!
The children in Starfish have been learning about Growth and Fixed mindsets. Today they had a go at drawing with their toes, writing with their non-dominant hand, building a tall tower of lego without it falling over, and playing the mars bar (milky way) game! They tried to complete this challenges without complaining that they were difficult, and trying to use positive comments such as 'I'm sure if I keep trying I can do this'.
Thank you for everyone who came to the harvest festival and then joined us on our Welly Walk!
The Y1 children have enjoyed designing and making houses that will survive a huff and a puff from the Big Bad Pig!
The Turtles had a great time at Tesco with Becky and Diane. They tasted so many different fruits and veg.
Starfish had lots of fun exploring Elmswell Farm!
Starfish have had a brilliant first few weeks settling into Year 1. They've been learning about all things Starfish, and have enjoyed learning new skills whilst making Starfish out of gingerbread dough and clay.

Starfish had a brilliant day at Elmswell Farm.
The Turtles had a fabulous day at Elmswell. Farmer John took us on a lovely long walk. We identified a variety of trees and flowers. We saw the five new baby calves that have been born. We did some nature activities in the afternoon. A good day was had by all. Well done Turtles.
14th March - Tesco Trip
the Turtles had a wonderful time at Tesco's. They looked at where different fruit came from and how much it cost. They then compared it with tinned and frozen fruit. After a quick trip to the walk in fridges and freezer they went to try various fruit. They all tried kiwi, strawberries, blueberries, melon, mango and pomegranate.
7th February -WORLD BOOK DAY!
The Year 1 classes have had a brilliant day exploring different books! Everyone looked brilliant in their costumes!
Dolphins and half of the Turtles class went to Flamingo Land on Wednesday. James was our guide and he showed us around the zoo.
We had a fabulous day and the weather was gorgeous.
26th Feb - Bedtime stories
Lots of children came to the bedtime stories session in their pyjamas. They enjoyed stories read by the teacher and then had a drink of hot chocolate and biscuits.
Today half of Turtles and the Starfish went to Flamingoland. They had a tour of the zoo and also a session in the classroom looking at classification of animals. The weather was absolutely glorious and we all had a fantastic time. The other half of the year group will be going tomorrow.
Once again we were invited to Riverhead care home to join some of the residents in a craft afternoon. This is to encourage the residents to socialise and keep fine motor skills sharp and is also beneficial to the children to talk to people much older. They were all quite shy to start with but had a wonderful time making a wind chime, an aeroplane and a valentines card . They even played with the parachute. All the children were very well behaved ..... if a little warm!
The eggs that have been in our classroom for the last few weeks have finally hatched.. but the animal seems to have vanished! Some of the children have created posters to go around the school to let people know what to look out for! Dolphins class have had a go at creating a friend for Beegu, and Starfish Class enjoyed creating a bed/house out of a giant box that was in their room. It is very exciting in Year 1 at the moment!
Starfish class had a great time at the woods, searching for Bog Baby and collecting resources to make a Bog Baby habitat.
The Starfish children have been designing and building a spaceship for Beegu, and alien that we have been reading about!
The Turtles children went to Kingsmill to collect items for their shoe box habitats for their Bog Babies.. Don't they look great!
A mysterious egg has arrived in each of the Year 1 classrooms.. what animal could be inside? The children will be exploring all about different animals in their new topic, Animal Puzzle.
