Pole to Pole

The children returned to school, unaware that we had some visitors.  The children found some very snowy footprints which led to some wintery animals.  When the children returned to the classroom they found some strange blocks of ice.  After some investigation, the children discovered Paula Polar Bear and her message hidden inside the ice.  Paula Polar Bear has lost her friend Pengy Penguin and needs the children's help to find her.

The children are looking forward to learning all about the North and South Pole, with our new topic Pole to Pole.

As part of our new topic, the children will be comparing life in Long Buckby with life in an Inuit village. To help with this we went for a walk around the village to see what we could find that was new and what we could find that was old. The children (and some of the adults) were very surprised to learn that we once had a crisp factory right in the middle of the village. And that the gym was once a cinema!

I wonder what else we will find out as we go through this interesting topic.

Welcome to a new school year in Year 1!

We have had such a lovely time since September getting to each other and learning together. We have begun to investigate our new topic "Reach for the Stars" and our learning has so far taken us all around our solar system, onto the moon and into the International Space Station. Please have a look HERE to see our overview which will give you some idea of the range of things we will be discovering and learning about. Please also click HERE to see our Autumn Newsletter for a few important messages including PE days for each class.

 We have been finding out about two famous astronauts - Neil Armstrong, the first man to walk on the moon, and Tim Peake, a british army colonel who worked aboard the ISS for six months. Did you know that Neil Armstrong was part of the team that investigated the Challenger shuttle disaster? We have used lots of different art media to portray the planets and to make ourselves into astronauts around the moon!

In Literacy we have been working hard on handwriting and phonics which has been good fun whilst in maths we have been examining greater than and less than, how to use part whole models to add and finding out about different ways to make numbers such as 10. And that's just the start! The children have worked so hard and really seem to have enjoyed their lessons. 

Green Class have also had their first 5 Forest School session (Yellow it'll be your turn after half term!) and have loved playing, making and learning in the outdoors. We got very lucky with the weather and it has been sunny for every session so far!

Have a look below at some photos of a few of the things we have been up to!
