We changed the story of Hansel and Gretel and acted it out

The children talked about the things they could change to the story and then cut out characters to use. They then role played it to each other in our puppet theatre.

Farm Day June 2015

We had a brilliant and very muddy time at the farm. We saw some calves, a nest of sparrows and ran through the maize field.

Cinderella 's slipper

We had a great afternoon on Friday designing and making Cinderella new slippers. We even saw her real glass slippers and decided that they were far too fragile to wear to the ball!:)

Cinderella

Our new topic is 'Once upon a fairytale' and we are enjoying reading and retelling fairy tales. Here we are retelling the story of Cinderella. We brought in props from home and each group performed on the stage. We have some wonderful actors and actresses in year 1, and it was lovely to see the buzz of excitement and confidence in the children's performances.

SCIENCE Planting

Our new topic in Science is Plants. Today we learnt about edible plants and why plants are important to us. We planted some cress seeds and tasted and planted different fruits and vegetables in the school allotment. We also painted our favourite fruit or vegetable using watercolours. These are beautiful and will be displayed outside the classroom so please come and have a look at them. We used netbooks to grow our own virtual plants and labelled the edible parts of the plants. We had a wonderful morning and are very excited about our new science topic.
