Welcome to the Year 1 page

Dear Parents and Carers,

Last week we came to the end of our topic on Wild Things and celebrated with a Wild Rumpus Day. This included making muffin boats, wild thing cookies and mini fruit kebabs with punch during the morning then eating the food around a fire in the afternoon. During the making process, we were able to apply our knowledge of fractions by cutting cheese slices into halves and quarters for the sails on our muffin boats. We learnt how to use the ‘bridge hold’ to cut fruit safely into halves and quarters. Our wild thing cookies had to have an even number of teeth and an odd number of eyes! Photos from the day and a video have been uploaded. A massive thank you for the fantastic costumes; please take a look at the photos and video to appreciate how amazing the experience was.

For the rest of this term, we are focusing on Christmas and then a mini project about the body. This will link our English texts based on the Funnybones series with our science learning.
