17th July 2017 – 21st July 2017

Well, our final week has flown over, but not as quickly as the year. On Tuesday we had lots of fun making our fruit smoothies. We all worked together to cut the fruit, including: bananas, strawberries, pineapple, blueberries and raspberries. After we weighed it and measured the amount of yoghurt we needed. Next, we added it all to the blender and WOOSH, mixed it all together! However, our smoothies didn’t last long, as they sold like hot cakes at our ‘Summer Carnival’ later in the afternoon. Clumsy Miss Wardrobe also knocked two over in our fridge! Here are some photos of us pouring out our smoothies.

We would like to say thank you to all of the grownups who attended our ‘Summer Carnival’. At the ‘Summer Carnival’ we had lots of things we could do and buy. Our favourite was the penalty shoot out, we were so good, Ronaldo needs to watch out.

This week we also had our ‘Celebration Assembly’. Well done to Millie, who won a prize for her 100% attendance! Keep it up next year, Millie. Leah won our star award for always being a kind friend and always giving 100% in everything she does.

Special Messages:

Miss Wardrobe: “You have all been a pleasure to have in class. I will miss you all and Good luck in Year 2, you will all be fantastic. Don’t forget to have a lovely summer!”

Miss Hodgson: “You’ve been an amazing class to work with this year and I look forward to seeing you all in September. Enjoy your summer holidays!”

On Monday, we were thrilled to watch our choir’s ‘Musical Magic’ performance. Next stop, X Factor. After that, we have created our cups to sell our fruit smoothies in at our Summer Carnival. We selected different materials and ensured that they were bright and sparkly. IMG_3274[1]

You can check our out fruit smoothies next Tuesday. On Wednesday, we all rocked out to Chis Little and his band. Then on Thursday we had our grownups join us for ‘Story Telling’ afternoon. Thank you, to everybody who came. We enjoyed making the story spoons the best. To show our respect to Bradley Lowery we came to school in non-uniform. We wrote messages to Bradley, tied them to a balloon and let them go in our school yard.

3rd July – 7th July 2017

This week we have started our whole school topic of carnival! To start off the week we listened to some samba music, we discussed the rhythm of the music and how we can move to it in different ways. After using books and Ipads to research carnival, we designed our very own carnival costume. We then went on to create our very own prototypes for our peg dolls.


Whilst bringing our designs to life, we evaluated materials, their purpose and explored different ways to manipulate and join them. All of our peg dolls were fantastic, but we thought we would share a few with you. Aren’t they magnificent?

On Tuesday we had a fantastic movie afternoon. We watched Moana and really enjoyed singing along. The hot dogs, sweets and pop were delicious, just like being at the cinema.

In Year 1 we are all brilliant mathematicians and this week we have been learning all about measure. First, we looked at how we can measure the capacity of an object. We worked in the water tray and  used cups to measure how much water could fit in a container. We even started to look at millilitres!

This week has been a very busy week in Year 1. On Monday we had our Key Stage 1 sports day. We took part in a hoop skip, bean bag race and even ran an obstacle course. To continue our sports week, we designed our own balanced meals.

This week we also started to look at poetry. We read the poem ‘So Good’ and used actions to perform our poem to the rest of the class. We have started to think about writing our own poems and to help us get some good ideas, we used our five senses to explore some mushy peas. Some of us were even brave enough to taste them!
