Spring Term 1- Week 3


We have enjoyed another week at school, exploring colours and the great outdoors!


This week the children enjoyed learning about Andy Warhol, his Pop Art paintings and techniques. They then had a go at creating their own, adding a lovely new splash of colour to our classrooms! Lots of fun was had by all, especially when it came to printing with their hands!


Year 1 also enjoyed yet another Outdoor Learning session this week, where they used natural materials to partition numbers into part-whole models. There was some fantastic collaboration happening and it was a great opportunity to consolidate our number bond knowledge. As a treat, they then created swords and magical wands...Miss Hayward was turned into a frog, crocodile and a dog, on many occasions!


Spring Term 1- Week 2


The children have had a fantastic week, this week, and it has been lovely to see their love and enthusiasm for learning continue to grow.

Year 1 enjoyed an Outdoor Learning session this week, where they used objects from the natural environment to make music! We had some very imaginative instruments and lots of curious questions about different plants and objects they found!

In English, they also had the opportunity to play and learn about a game called Marbles! They have used their experience to write a great set of instructions, to help others play the game, and today they produced their own fact page about marbles too.


We all 'Aimed High' this week!
