On Tuesday, Year 1 had lots of fun learning all about colours in French. We began our afternoon by learning how to pronounce each colour of the rainbow and then we all took part in singing a french colour song. We were soon experts at our colours and went on to create some beautiful pictures using our french skills. Très bien Year 1!
Today, Year 1 have transformed into Space Rangers. We had a very special visit from an astronaut informing us that Buzz needed a new rocket ship and we had to help him! Year 1 were certainly up for the challenge and worked very hard to create a brand new rocket ship ready for Buzz to fly into Space! We have had lots of fun learning all about rockets and we have even sang a special rocket song. We can’t wait to see the finished results next week!
This week the last week of Eco-Science club for KS1. Miss Reid and Mrs Gritton have been blown away by the eagerness and enthusiasm the children have shown over the last 6 weeks. If you can remember, in the first week we planted some seeds in pots which the children have been checking on each week.
This week they had the opportunity to draw what has happened to their seed. We hope the children remember to water their plants at home and hopefully soon we might have some small vegetables appear! Everyone left yesterday with a special Eco-Science certificate to show what an amazing job they have done. Let’s hope KS2 are just as enthusiastic!
This week at Eco Science Club, the children were back outside – this time collecting air from around our yard. Why were you collecting air, I hear you ask. Well, we have taken a sample of our air to send to be inspected. Hopefully, we will receive some data from the scientists explaining what is in our air and if we have “clean” or “dirty” air. The children were fantastic and thoroughly enjoyed getting the samples.
This evening, Eco Science club went outdoors! The children were able to get stuck in this week with some weeding and planting. We were extremely sensible and very grown up as we used trowels, rakes and forks to dig out small weeds and make little holes for our seeds. Mrs Gritton and Miss Reid were both very impressed by the children’s behaviour. We hope that are little plants can survive the winter!
Year 1 have enjoyed their first week back and have wowed me with their positive attitude to learning and their fantastic behaviour. They have had lots of fun learning about autumn and building their very own hedgehog hotel. Great work Year 1!
Year 1b took part in their Big Clean Up this week. Luckily they had the sun beaming down to help them. Thank you everyone who has helped so far.

Let’s work together to look after our amazing planet.
Today, the Phase 6 Phonics group have been continuing their work on contraction using apostrophes. We have been discovering what apostrophes are and ow they work, as well as applying them through a variety of fun games, activities and writing tasks. Today, the children imagined that they were chefs, chopping up words to remove unwanted letters, and mixing them back together to create contractions. Have a look below at our fantastic work.
We have even been lucky enough to have fun writing our sentences on the classroom tables. What fun we’ve had! Don’t tell Mr. Naughton…
“There’s a glittery, golden unicorn horn.”
“There’s a red, fiery dragon on the loose.”
“They’ll find the humungous, orange crab.”
“She’ll steal a cupcake on Sunday.”
“There mightn’t be a cove on the beach.”
“There mightn’t be any cheese left because I ate it last night.”
“Who’d want to see a ginormous, red monster?”
“There’s going to be somebody coming over tonight.”
