We came into our classroom and got a bit of a surprise on Monday morning!! We found the door open, massive foot prints on the floor and two.....yes two large eggs!!!
We had a long discussion about what we thought might have happened and we came to the conclusion that a dinosaur has been in our classroom!!! aaaaahhhhhhhhhh
We have a feeling that the dinosaur dropped the eggs and might be coming back for them as we keep hearing lots of strange noises in school. Some of us have heard stomping upstairs, some have found other footprints around school and even a roar that sounded like a dinosaur!
For now though we are looking after the eggs and keeping them warm in a basket. We keep checking up on them to see if they have hatched and today we noticed a crack starting to appear on one of the eggs! We have spent some of today trying to figure out what we think might be in their so stay tuned....!!
We had another think about what other other in school help us. We had thought of teachers, teaching assistants, lunch time supervisors, Mr Wheeldon and Elaine the school cook!
She kindly agreed to come and talk to all of the year 1 children on Friday and tell them about why she is important in school and how she helps us!
She makes sure that we eat a healthy lunch every day. She even cooks breakfast and tea for children that go to breakfast and after school club. She is really busy every day and makes us the best lunches!!
After we sat really nicely and we were able to ask her some questions. We were really good at using what, why, and who to start our questions.
She even baked us all a biscuit that we ate at the end!!
As part of our People who help us topic we got another surprise last week when some Firefighters came to visit!! They talked to us about what they do at work, why they became and firefighter and showed us all the equipment they have on a fire engine.
They were really friendly and let us look inside the fire engine and we could remember lots of things we had already learn about fire fighters. They were really surprised that we knew so much!
Miss Hardy was really jealous that she didn't get to see them!! They even let us have a go at using the hose to spray water onto the playground! This was so much fun!!
Last week we had some very special important visitors! Our focus for the week was learning about Police Officers as past of our 'What people help us topic'. PC Pete and PC Neil came to school to talk to us about what they do in their job. They do lots of things but most importantly try to keep people safe in the community. They have to carry round lots of equipment including a baton, jackets, radio's, hats, video camera, torches and much more. They even carry handcuffs and tried to hand cuff Emadey! But luckily she got free! After our talk session we were treated to having a look in the police car and got to dress up in their jackets and hats! We had the best morning and loved seeing PC Pete and PC Neil!
We went for a walk to the Teepee and forest school area last week. We really enjoyed exploring the outside area and used our imagination to play some games with our friends. We decided that we are going to come back every week if we can and use the outdoor area for our learning and development.
We finished the day with a story in the teepee. We had to be really quiet though so that we didn't wake up the fairies!!
Our new topic next week is What people help us?
If there are any parents that work in the public sector and would like to come into school to talk to the children about your job we would really appreciate it! Jobs such as police officers, doctors, nurses, dentists, vet, postman, librarian, firefighter etc, etc.... Please feel free to come and chat to Miss Hardy :)
Welcome to 1H!
What a fantastic start to the new school year we are having so far. We have settled in really well and getting to know each other more and more each day.
Our first topic is Who am I? and we have spent a lot of time getting to know our friends, where we live, who we live with, what are likes and dislikes are and lots more.
We have also worked really hard as a class to come up with our own class rules that we have displayed in the classroom for all to see. we are really good at sticking to these rules as they are an important part of our daily life at school.
Our classroom looks a lot different to our old class so we have had to spend time learning about our new jobs and challenges and making sure we are always working hard.
Here are a few photos to share with you. Don't worry...there will be lots more coming this way soon!
