We had a lovely trip to Millhouses Park this morning. We walked down to the park, spotting landmarks, to get a sense of place. We then explored the park and made a map with a key. We had a go at finding north using the compasses. It was quite a challenge! Finally, we had snack and a play in the park.
Thank you very much indeed to all our parent helpers, you were brilliant!
The children then went back to school and explained to our reception friends how we mapped the different areas of the park. They then helped all made a 3d model of their own park. The children worked so well together as teams, used a variety of skills to create their virtual parks.
This is just a reminder that the Year 1 children are going on a trip tomorrow morning to Millhouses Park as part of their geography topic (leaving after registration and arriving back in time for dinner). Please make sure your child has a waterproof coat and suitable shoes.
There are new ‘Maths with Parents’ videos set for both Reception and Year 1. We have been looking at 3D shapes in Year 1 so it would be great if you can ask your child to look for some around the house and tell you what they are. Many thanks.
A letter has come home about a school trip next Wednesday at 9am for our Year 1 children. This will be related to our topic work on mapping skills.
Please make sure your child has an outdoor coat and suitable walking shoes on that day.
We would really appreciate any parent helpers. If you are able to accompany us, please let us know as soon as possible. Thank you!
In our RE lessons this week, we have discussed how God created the earth and how he looks after everyone and everything he has created. We also discussed how we can look after God’s precious world.
We also talked about Jesus and his family home and went on to compare our lives to Jesus’. We roleplayed being Jesus living in his family home – sleeping on a mat instead of a bed and working with Joseph as a carpenter.
Today the children had a great day taking part in our skipping workshop and Ruggereds taster session. They enjoyed making teams of 2s, 3s, 4s and 5s working together to run under a swinging skipping rope!
Here are a few photos of our day…
As it was too wet last Tuesday, we are going to try again to go to the woods this week. Please could the children bring waterproofs and wellies in for Monday and we will try to go either Monday or Tuesday afternoon.
We would just like to say how proud we were of the children today being welcomed into our school family. Thank you to Father Kilgannon for a lovely assembly and to all the family members that came. Have a lovely weekend!
The children had a lovely day yesterday looking at different poetry based on the ‘Harvest Festival.’ They really enjoyed reciting poems and the Year 1s did a great job of writing a short poem. They also really enjoyed sharing poems with Year 3 and made scarecrow cookies! Here are a few pictures of our day…
