We have been exploring our new theme of ‘Superheroes’ .

We have designed our own superheroes, created gadgets for them ,wrote lists of their special super powers and formed some superhuman sentences!

We have also been thinking about real life super heroes and their talents.

A big event can make it feel like the world is falling apart,

But there are millions of tiny acts of KINDNESS still holding it together <3

Year 1 Computing Afternoon

In Year 1 , we have been very busy programming bee bots to follow instructions. First, we  had to think of the correct direction for our bee bots to travel and then the amount of steps needed to help the bee bot get to its destination. We also had lots of fun, controlling the cars around the circuits we created! 🙂

Phonics Screening Meeting

Recently, we invited our Year 1 parents into our classroom to find out more about this year’s phonics screening check. We showed them some of the games we play in class to help develop our reading skills and showed them how they can join in at home. Our children had lots of fun being the teacher for their mummies and daddies 🙂


Here are the links to some of the sites we explored:

We know Christmas is a very exciting time of the year but it is very important to remember just why we are celebrating!
In year 1 we have been thinking about and preparing for the birth of Jesus. We created our own class Advent calendar (complete with chocolate) to remind us that we are counting down to a very special day!

We have also been very busy practicing for our KS1 Nativity. We are hoping that our wonderful acting skills and fabulous singing voices will really help everybody to remember that Christmas is a time to spread joy and happiness!

Today we had a very special visitor in school- Father Christmas! We all loved meeting him and promised to be very good!!

Monday 13th June 2016 – Year 1/2 Smithills Farm trip

Year 1 and 2 were farmers for the day! Even though it poured down all day, we all had a fantastic day feeding the animals and going on a donkey ride. We had a very bumpy tractor ride around the farm and got to meet lots of the farmers. We found out lots of facts like they have to milk their 85 cows 3 times a day!

Challenge – Can you remember any more facts we learnt about the farm/animals?

What was your favourite part of the day?
