Environment Day

For Environment Day, Year One spent the day outside, only coming inside for lunch.

We used this opportunity to link with our Literacy work, creating homes for the book characters using the resources in the outside environment

We then received some post addressed to the characters. One person took on the role of the Jolly Postman and read, then delivered the letters to the right homes.

Literacy

In Literacy we have been focusing on the story of 'The Jolly Postman'. At the beginning of the topic, the children received some letters from some fairy tale characters. They needed to read the letters in groups and then work out who they were from, all the guesses were written on the board with the children being able to explain why they thought it was a certain character.

Remembrance Day

To celebrate Remembrance Day, Year One have been making their own poppies to go on a wreath. We have talked about the meaning behind the poppies and have made prayers to put on our prayer table for the fallen soldiers.

Windsor

We have been looking at Castles, Kings and Queens as our topic, focusing on Queen Victoria as well as our literacy text 'Zog'. 

Prior to our visit to Windsor castle, the children used bricks to create their own castles which varied in height and width.

Year 1 and 2 visited Windsor Castle together, everyone was very excited although some were a little disappointed that we weren't travelling on a golden coach. 

We watched the guards marching, listened to a talk about how to defend a castle and then some children had a go at defending their own castle while the rest of the children marched to try to take it over. 

There was also the opportunity to become knights themselves trying on chainmail and a Henry VIII replica helmet. 

We learnt that when the Queen is at home the castle flies the Royal Standard and when she is not at home it is the Union Flag that can be seen.
