We hope that you enjoy discovering what we are doing this year. Don't forget to see our updates on our facebook page.

 

Autumn Term

Memory Box

Can you remember being small? Being a baby and learning to crawl? Do you recall a favourite toy, maybe a teddy bear or a best-loved book?

Look back at family photos of special occasions, perhaps holiday snapshots or a birthday or two! Remember a wedding, or a christening and find a funny photo of your parents when they were young!

Learn how to write a diary of days gone by, and find out about the days before you were born: it’s called history and it’s all about the past.

Then make a special box; a memory box, to keep special things. In years to come you can revisit them and remember how you looked when you were young.

Memories are special… Let’s make some more!

 

Spring Term

Land Ahoy!

Yo-ho-ho and a bottle of rum! Arrr… me hearties, it’s a sailor’s life for me!

Get your sea legs on, it’s time to sail the salty seas. Navigate, investigate and explore the world – just like Captain Cook.

Make a boat, sink a ship, fly a pirate flag! Speak like a pirate, write like a poet, then weigh and measure a pirate’s booty!

How do rescues happens at sea? Find out about brave volunteers and young Miss Darling, rowing her boat across stormy seas.

Sing a sea shanty whilst cleaning the poop deck then search the school grounds for Captain Longbeard’s hidden treasure.

Thar’s land ahead, me buckos! Let’s get t’ship t’port.

 

Summer Term

Towers, Tunnels and Turrets

Imaginative Learning Project for Year 1 Children

See the castle ahead?  Get ready to invade its mighty walls! Shoot a projectile with an archer’s aim! Head across the drawbridge, over the moat and up to the top of the tower...

Meet Rapunzel who lives in a tall, tall tower. Let’s build a brand new one... Whose is the tallest? Can you measure it?

Then dig deep, deep down making burrows and tunnels, just like the animals who live underground.

What’s that sound? I hear little hooves going trip, trap, trip, trap, over the rickety bridge. Watch out for the angry troll underneath... He likes to gobble up little girls and boys! Make sure your bridge is sturdy enough to take the weight and get us safely to the other side.

And finally... meet the three little pigs who need your help to build a strong fortress. Inside its strong walls they’ll be safe from the big, bad wolf!

No huffing and puffing will blow your fortress down!
