Year 1 - Pear Class

We had a great trip at Noah’s Ark Zoo Farm, where we saw a range of animals from across the world giving us the chance to talk about where they originate from. We began our trip by looking at the Meerkats, who were being fed, before exploring the reptile house, farm animals, birds and more before finishing at the Elephant Eden. The children throughly enjoyed themselves and were extremely well behaved throughout the day. 

In Maths, we have been using balances to learn about weights. We compared the weights of objects in the classroom to find the heaviest and the lightest object. 

Pear Class had a great time this week learning about toys throughout time. During a workshop we got to make our own thaumatropes, sort toys, play with a variety of toys and dress up in Victorian school clothes. 

 

During our DT lessons this term the children have been busy designing and making puppets. The children have loved getting creative. You can see the children made a variety of animals from bees, elephants, polar bears, wolves, tigers and rabbits. We hope you’ll enjoy them at home. 

Over the past few weeks Year 1 have been working hard practising their lines and songs for their Nativity ‘A Miracle in Town’. Thank you to the parents for helping Year 1 learn their lines and we hope you enjoyed the show. 

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from all of us in Year 1.

A huge thank you to the PTA for organising and arranging a whole school trip to the Octagon Theatre to watch Mother Goose. Pear Class had a fantastic time and thoroughly enjoyed both the show and the coach trip on a double decker bus! Our highlights were when the cast ran through the audience squirting us with water and when the confetti cannon went off over us. 

Year 1 have been busy making snowmen to be displayed around the school grounds. They had fun sanding the wood, glueing the buttons, nose and hat on and placing them in the ground. Look out for them when you come to school and we hope you enjoy them. 

A big thank you to the PTA who paid and arranged for Pear Class to learn about mammals, reptiles and insects. Pear Class were very brave and loved the opportunity to look closely and learn more about the animals. 

Children In Need

Pear Class enjoyed learning about Pudsey Bear and how he helps Children in Need raise money for children across the United Kingdom. To support Pudsey, we made a donation to wear non school uniform. Throughout the week we followed instructions to make Pudsey Biscuits and also made a moving Pudsey Bear. 

Outdoor Learning

We took the opportunity to get outside and create hedgehog dens in the playground. Pear class had an enjoyable time collecting natural resources to help them and working together. 

 

#HelloYellow

On Friday 8th October Pear Class showed their support for children’s mental health day by wearing bright colours. All children were pleased to donate to a worthy cause. 
 

Family Learning Mask Making

Darrell Wakelam came into school to show us how to create farm yard animal masks. We had great fun mask making with our teachers, parents and grandparents. Our class listened carefully to instructions and we each made a mask to be displayed in school. A big thank you to everyone who came in to help us. 

Thank you to Miss Roy for helping Pear Class participate in the school handprint mural!

This week in Pear class has been extremely busy, the children have worked hard and have had great fun learning in different ways. I’ve captured some of our learning opportunities below, so you can see the enjoyment we have had for yourselves. 

In Science we explored our senses. We tasted raspberries and blueberries, smelt spices, felt unseen objects, identified different sounds and looked through coloured lenses...

In Outdoor Learning we got to go outside in the sun to make self portrait collages out of nature...

In English we went on a bear hunt around the school and we found the bear…

Welcome to Pear Class

 

The children have had a great start to Pear Class.  Every child has returned to school looking amazing in their smart uniform and ready to work hard.  Thank you to all of our wonderful parents for preparing us for our new school year.

 

The first week has been very busy, we have shared lots of laughter, lots of fun and plenty of learning too.  Here are a few pictures of us enjoying our learning this week.  

In Geography we explored the school grounds to find our favourite part of school...
