Growing our brains...
This week we have been learning about half's and quarters in numeracy. We went 'to the park' in PE putting on our Winter clothes and splashing in puddles. We also used the equipment (safely) and jumped off carefully with a bent knee landing. In DT we have been looking at structures - playgrounds and circuses. It has been a brilliant learning week.

Busy , warm sunny days...Lots of lovely learning!
What a lovely sunny week we have had. It has been such a busy week of learning! Our art this half term is all about how artists can be inspired by music. We have listened to lots of different pieces of music and used a range of resources to create what we heaqr! We have also been looking at different musical instruments and drawing what we can see. Next week we will be making our own instruments! Please could you send in any recycled resources we could use! Thank you!
Year 1 Football Club
The children are really enjoying football club...even without Mr Clarke!! It was very warm today so we did some of the session inside and then we went outside to play some games. All the children joined in and tried their very best at all the different skills. They really enjoyed playing in a match and some great goals were scored! Hopefully next week it will be a little cooler...

When this was done we then measured our feet. This was written down so we could compare if taller people in our class had bigger feet! We found t
Multi-sports Week 2 - Hockey
This week the children were introduced to hockey. They spent time controlling just the ball first and then moved onto learning how to hold the hockey stick and strike the ball. They found it a little tricky at first but many of them gained confidence during the session and improved their hand-eye coordination and awareness of what was around them. They all had lots of fun! Check out the next post to find out what sport they tackle next!

Next week we focus on ball skills...
Let's get Physical!
This week we have been having lots of fun during our P.E lessons. We have been focusing on our ball skills. We have been rolling the ball along the floor at various speeds as well throwing and catching with a partner. The children have thoroughly enjoyed this activity and we will continue to practise their ball skills throughout this term. As the weather is getting warmer can we please ask if all children can come into School with their sun cream on and ensure your child has
