Yesterday Class 1 went on a school trip to Tower Bridge. We had great fun exploring the engine rooms, looking at London landmarks from the top of the bridge and walking across the glass-bottomed floor! In the afternoon, we were lucky enough to have Sophie and Nat from Tower Bridge visit us at school to do a workshop about the bus that jumped Tower Bridge 60 years ago!
The children behaved exceptionally well and showed their excellent knowledge of our local area throughout the day! WELL DONE CLASS 1!
This week we’ve celebrated DT week, focusing on famous landmarks. Class 1 have been learning about the Egyptian Pyramids and made models of the tallest pyramid in Egypt, The Great Pyramid of Giza. Ben and Deborah worked as a great team to construct, paint and decorate their models. Well done!
Class 1 have been working hard to produce some excellent work which is now showcased in our many displays around the classroom. Well done to Nifemi and Rory for consistently producing such neat and thoughtful pieces of work.
After Christmas, we will be starting weekly spellings in Year 1. Below are a list of spelling words that the children will be learning. It would be really beneficial for your child if you could point out these words as they come up in their reading books and encourage your child to use them in any writing they do at home.
This week Class 1 have been using their class charter to remind them of how we should act so that everyone has the right to be heard, to learn, to be safe and to have a nice environment. Scarlet and Thomas have been extremely kind and helpful this week and always work hard to ensure that Class 1 is a happy place to be!
What a great start to the year, Class 1! The children have settled into the new rules and routines very quickly and are enjoying the responsibilities of working independently at their tables. We have been writing prayers and producing art work for World Faiths Week, which we are celebrating this week at Cathedral School. Look out for pictures of their hard work on next week’s blog!
This week Class 1 have been busy getting ready for their first sports day! Children have enjoyed the ‘World Cup’ theme this week and have produced some excellent work, especially in maths where they have produced tally charts and bar graphs on different World Cup data. Children also wrote some fantastic letters to FIFA this week, asking for the World Cup to be held in London in 2022! Take a look at some of our photos from sports week.
This half term in computing children have started programming. Class 1 have been completing Code 1, called ‘We are angry birds’ and have been programming with visual code blocks. Take a look at some of the things we have been doing in our computing lessons.
