It's the start of a new year and term. However, we should really have look back over the Autumn period and all the fantastic work and achievements Year 1 have made.
In the first term the topic was Famous People, for this we concentrated on the North American Indians, notably Sitting Bull and the great Apaches. Then we turned to English and focused on the Legend of King Arthur and Robin Hood. These subjects of topic were greatly enjoyed by the children, as can be seen from the pictures below.

There are also some important characters that should be introduced on the blog, and they are the board wipers - Foggy and the Bald Twins. Named by the class through a short voting process.
Here are some pictures of the classroom displays currently up in class and outside in the school corridors.
