Performance Poetry – Nursery Rhymes

The Year 1 children have been learning many different nursery rhymes this week. We have been learning all about APE (Audience, Purpose and Effect). Our audience was younger children, the purpose was to entertain and we wanted them to enjoy and laugh at our morfos as an effect. The children worked hard to learn their rhyme. Have a look!

Our PE lesson

We are currently learning all about Fundamental Skills through Gymnastics. We were looking at different types of jumps today including a pencil jump, tuck jump, star jump and a turn jump. We talked about how a good jump needs ‘bouncy knees’ when landing.

We also talked about using the benches and mats safely. For our first go, Mrs Stalker was very impressed.

During TED time, we watched our videos back and talked about the WAGOLLS and WABOLLS that we could see. What do you think Mr Porter? Any tips for us?

Key Person W/C 13th November & Home Learning

For Key Person time this week, we are looking at St John Ambulance resources which helps support the delivery of basic healthy living and safety measures such as, road safety, healthy eating, what do you do if someone was feeling unwell, what would you do in an emergency. Please have a discussion with your children about these topics.

Respect, tolerance and community day

Today we have started our new topic all about ‘Celebrations’ which looks at different religions. We talked about everyone having their own beliefs but we need to respect everybody!

Our first Celebration to learn about is called Diwali. Diwali is the festival of light. Hindu’s pray to their god Lakshima. The lights led her back home. Hindu’s clean their houses, they decorate them with lights, they wear new clothes and eat sweets made out of coconut.


Our People Who Help Us Day

We have an a very exciting day today. All the children came into school dressed in ‘What they want to be when they grow up?’

We had Mr Pearson in from Network Rail, we had the Police Officers and their police car. We loved the siren!
