    SS Great Britain

    Posted by Mrs L Trotman
    Wow - what a fantastic day we had! The children were kept busy with guided tours and workshops which culminated in us travelling back in time to launch the ship in full Victorian costume no less! Class 1 were fantastic; answering and even preempting the answers to questions from the Great Britain staff using their prior knowledge and research. We saw the cabins and tried out the extremely narrow bunks, saw the animals on the steerage deck in the bow, watched the huge steam wheels turn and the incredible boilers being filled, watched the rats scurrying around the galley and witnessed an appointment with the ships doctor. What a fabulous experience we've all had. A big THANK YOU to all the helpers who supported us and to those who offered help.

    Telling the time

    Posted by Mrs L Trotman
    WALT tell the o'clock and half past times. Class 1 have been mastering the year 1 time telling skills. They know the names of the clock hands and can recognise what they mean when in the positions for o'clock and half past times. They can sequence the days of the week and months of the year. Great work!

    WALT design and make moving pictures.

    Posted by Mrs L Trotman
    This term the children have researched books with moving pictures... pop-ups, sliders, pivots and flaps. We used our research to help explore what we like and how things worked so that we could design our own moving picture for our whole school theme book The Day the Crayons Quit. The children had some quite challenging and complex ideas, which followed our design brief and we en-devoured to make. They should have winged their way home to impress you last week. The children have continued to apply the skills and techniques in their own work during their continuous provision time which is fabulous to see.

    Trip to the S.S. Great Britain

    Posted by Mrs L Trotman
    Yey our long awaited trip is tomorrow! All the children are very excited! We have had a talk with them about trip safety and expectations. They need a packed lunch,some have opted for a school packed lunch and some for a home packed lunch. This would be best inside a back back so the children can carry it themselves. We have talked about not bringing fizzy drinks and that reusable bottles are best so they can save some for later. They need to wear school uniform. We don't anticipate rain but if forecast changes, pack a waterproof coat in their backpack. If it's another scorcher then a sun hat and sun cream would be advisable. We aim to leave school at 9 am and return to school for 3:15 but will the school office informed of any hold-ups.

    Transition day - tomorrow!

    Posted by Mrs L Trotman
    Hi everyone - thanks to all the Class 1 children for a lovely welcome back from Year 6 camp. I am looking forward to our transition day tomorrow where we will start to think about the things we want to learn while we are in Class 2. Wow! Can you believe a year has almost gone? I am aware that there is a scheduled "meet the new teacher" after school. I was hoping, as we all know each, that any pressing questions could be asked on Friday after school at pick up as I have to attended my own sons transfer to secondary school that afternoon. Thanks in advance for you understanding. Year 2 here we come!
