Our Trip to Cotehele
We went on a fantastic trip to Cotehele House. It was an amazing day, where we learned lots of facts about the Tudors and all the different types of materials used to make the magnificent house. The weather was very good to us and the sun shone nearly all day!
The children had the opportunity to dress up as Tudor people. Some were dressed as rich and some were dressed as poor Tudors. Can you guess who was who?
We also looked out for the house 'Coat of Arms', which was seen all around the house, presented in many different ways.
At the end of our day we had a few spare minutes to have a play and wind down in the park.
World Book Day 2016
Thursday 17th March saw our class bursting with well known book characters. The children made an amazing effort and a lot of giggles were had throughout the day! There were some odd looking adults in the class too!!!
Can you spot who is who?
We have been performing and learning to recite the poems 'Daffodils' by William Wordsworth and 'Who?' by Pie Corbett. Along with our poetry we have painted some pictures of beautiful daffodils, which are currently brightening our classroom with a touch of spring.
Our Nativity rehearsal today at St Mary's Church promises a great performance tomorrow!
This week we have begun our weekly spellings. The children will bring their new spellings sheet home on a Friday along with their test results in their red books. Spellings will be tested the following Friday. The words will be relevant to the children's phonics groups and will cover graphemes and tricky words covered that week. Please encourage your children to learn these. Use Look, Cover, Write, Check to practise them.
Lost and Found
In our Literacy lessons the children have been reading the very well known book by Shirley Hughes 'Dogger'.
We have been looking at our favourite toys and how we would feel if we lost them. The children have been designing lost posters to place around the school and hopefully we will be able to hide a toy for other children to find.
(Posters to follow).
We have been learning and performing poetry by the famous poet Michael Rosen. ' Down Behind the Dustbins' has proven a very popular poem for the year 1 children to perform.
'Our Heroes' fancydress for Children in Need.
The class loved dressing up for Children in Need. We were even lucky enough to be in the presence of royalty, as The Queen was in attendance, fresh from the countryside!
Children in Need Ramble
For Children in Need Mrs Richards/Mrs Wilson's class went on a ramble into the woods.
We were lucky with the weather and the sun shone down on us. The children played hide and seek,collected leaves and branches and were lucky enough to have a go on a rope swing hiding away in the trees. We had to capture pictures of the children enjoying their free time, playing and doing something good for charity.
