Our Lovely Library Trip

Today the children walked to Ecclesall Library to find out how a library works.  They  really enjoyed listening to different stories and discussing the different types of books we have in a library. They then had the opportunity to look around the library and explore the different books. Thank you so much to the parents that helped walk us to the library and back to school. Also thank you for reading to the children.

Year 1 Homework

The spellings for over the holidays are –






We would like the children to have a lovely rest over the holidays. They have worked so hard over the past few weeks.  For maths, we are just asking for your children to identify any 3D shapes around the house or if your out and about. Also any repeating patterns they can see.

Humpty Dumpty Science Experiment

This afternoon, we listened to the song Humpty Dumpty. Then we thought about what materials we could put on the floor to stop Humpty from breaking.

We then learnt a new word ‘prediction’ and we made predictions about each of the different materials. We found out that the cotton wool, playdough, pine cones, corn flakes all protected Humpty from breaking. The marbles and the feathers didn’t protect Humpty and he cracked when he fell on these materials. We were very surprised about the feathers but decided that Humpty had hit the plastic basket at the bottom.

Handa’s Surprise

This week, instead of our usual phonics sessions we have been looking at the lovely book ‘Handa’s Surprise’. We started the week by trying lots of different fruit from the book and thinking about how we could describe the fruit.

Our Trip to the Library – 25.10.17

Just to remind you all tomorrow is our visit to the library. We will be leaving after the register has been taken and will be back for lunch time. If anyone is still interested in helping, please feel free to join us.  The children can still wear brightly coloured clothes like the rest of the school. The weather forecast is looking good but please can your child  bring a warm, waterproof jacket just in case! Please can they also wear sensible footwear as we will be walking to Ecclesall Library. Many thanks.
