Year 1 have had a brilliant and very busy start to the summer term! Armed with magnifying glasses and our colour hunt challenges, the children enjoyed using their senses to explore the meadow and all of the insects, trees and flowers there. We all felt so lucky to have such an amazing open space so close to school and wrote recounts of our walk during our English lessons.
The children used a variety of skills to design, assemble and evaluate their own model windmills. They persevered with their cutting skills and showed great teamwork, helping one another constructing their turbines. We thought about what Boris the Robot told us and kept reminding ourselves that ‘No way through isn’t true’.
The children enjoyed every single second celebrating the Queen’s Jubilee and a big highlight for all was our first Whole School Worship! Everyone certainly dressed to impress and we loved coming together for our street party lunch and dancing and singing on the field in the afternoon. The week flew by making bunting and paper chains, designing our own postage stamps, making a class contribution for a whole school timeline of the Queen’s life and learning to sing and dance to The Lambeth Walk. We even found the time to create a year group paving slab for our school Jubilee Garden! We hope that you all enjoyed your own celebrations during the half term break too!
