Yesterday was our last forest school session with Mr Williams. We had such a good time as were got to use the steels, and help to light a fire. We then used skewers to toast marshmallows and drank some hot chocolate too! We had to be very careful around the fire and make sure we were safe when toasting our marshmallows. The marshmallows were so tasty!!
What an AMAZING day we had yesterday!!! From start to finish we were all so well behaved on our trip to Lego land. We were all so excited and had quite a few songs on the coach going there. When we got to Lego land we waited in line and then as soon as we were checked in we were ready to go and have some fun. There were so many fun things for us to do such as driving cars, pedaling in our own flying lego, climbing the rock wall, making cars out of lego and test driving them on the ramps and finally playing in the huge soft play area! We stopped for some lunch and afterwards carried on playing until it was time to come back to school. We LOVED it and had the best time! Also we would like to say a huge THANK YOU to the staff and parents that came with us and helped us!
On Monday we had a great cricket session with our coach. We got into teams and had a race against each other with batting and fielding. We were really competitive and worked really hard as a team to score points! We had such a good time and can't wait for our next session on Monday!
Today has been a great day across school and in Year 1H! We came to school and came across loads of feathers around the classroom, in our lockers and we couldn't quite work out why they were there.
We read a few stories to our friends and parents before they had to go.
The story they we read was called Perfectly Norman and it was such a great story with so many hidden meanings that we were able to think about. We had a P4C session and discussed differences between people and whether it was ok to treat someone differently because they were different from you? The discussions were brilliant and really thought provoking!
We had lots of fun too today including making masks, bookmarks, used feathers and paint to write our names and even had our photo taken with wings just like Norman! It was a perfectly normal day in 1H!
Over the last few weeks we have been to the forest within our own grounds to learn how to do all sorts of new things. We have all learnt how to tie and hitch knot, use loppers correctly and safely and to use a spark to learn how to start fires. The first time we went we were able to plant seeds and over the coming weeks water them so they are ready to be planted in the next few weeks.
We can't wait to go the next time as we will be lighting a fire and having some hot chocolate!!
As part of our new topic this half term 1H have been looking at toys from the past and comparing them to toys today. We really enjoyed when parents and carers came in to share their toys and allowed the children to see different kinds of old and new toys.
We have been looking at old toys and what they are made from compared to the new toys today. We are going to be thinking of adjectives to describe them and writing full sentences to describe them.
As part of our topic 'Where do all the Animals live?' we had a very special visit from Dean who brought with him lots of reptiles for us to meet!
It was a very exciting morning!! We got to hold all of the animals and learnt more interesting facts about them. Dean was very impressed with how much we already knew about some of the reptiles.
We got to meet 2 snakes, a frog, a stick insect, a tarantula (Miss Hardy had to leave the room when that came out!!!), a chinchilla, a dragon lizard and a gecko.
Take a look at all of our photos to see how amazing it was.....and also how very brave we were!!!!
The school Nurse came to visit us yesterday afternoon to talk to us about healthy snacks. We looked at different plates of food and had to decide if they were healthy or not healthy. We got them all right and knew that sweets, chocolate and fizzy drinks are not healthy for our body. They even make our brains work slower so we don't learn as much in school!
We knew what a healthy plate looked like and talked to our partners about healthy foods that we eat at home.
The nurse brought us all some different healthy snacks to try which included; pineapple, babybell cheese, peppers, celery, olives, tomatoes, crackers with cream cheese and humous. Some of us had never tried some of these foods before and we were so brave in trying them. Some of tried olives and loved them but also some tried them and didn't like them! See if you can tell from the pictures what we liked and disliked!
We had such a roarsome time when Alex came to visit us from the museum in Bolton. He brought us so many fossils and dinosaur resources to look at. We were allowed to hold them whilst he told us what they were and where they came from. So many of us actually knew what the dinosaur parts were from our learning in class.
We were amazed to see what a real life T-rex tooth and claw looked like!! It was pretty scary but also really cool!!
We worked in teams to put back together the skeleton of a T-rex. We also drew some pictures of the fossils that he brought with him. We even told him all about Mary Anning and how she was a famous fossil hunter from the past.
We ended with a video looking at different dinosaurs and we had to guess their names. Miss Hardy wasn't very good at remembering the names so we had to help her out!!
Thank you so much to all the parents and carers that came to our reading workshops! The children really enjoyed reading with their adults and showing them all the strategies that they use when reading. It is such an important part of a child's learning journey so having an input into that process needs to involve both the parents and teachers.
