What a lovely day we all had at our summer party...despite the weather!! From decorating biscuits, playing teddy games and jumping on the bouncy castle..not to mention the ice lollies, the picnic and pass the parcel. We were very busy but had a super time.
Summer Party Day 1L
We have been looking at the stories of Winnie the Witch and Wilbur. We have written our own Winnie on holiday stories. Look at the hats we made!
Sports Day Fun....
Here we are preparing our resources for the new role play area. We will have a beach shop. Look at our super sunglasses!!
We will be having our PE lessons outside now that we are in the summer term. Don't forget your PE kit and make sure your name is on all the items. PE is on Wednesdays.
Face painting for children with 100% attendance last term. Well done...you all looked great.
Who are we?
Here we are performing The Owl and The Pussy Cat by Edward Lear. We have enjoyed putting the actions to the poem and finding the rhyming words.
We have really enjoyed our English lessons on The Wind in the Willows by Kenneth Grahame. We can tell you all about our favourite characters, the setting of the story and our favourite parts of the story. Toad and Mole are the class favourite characters. We like Toad because he is boastful but he is kind to his friends. We like Mole because he likes to try new things. We have written about the story and added our own chapter. Some of our ideas were to have a party at Toad's house and for Mole and Badger to go out on the river in the boat. Here we are in our role play area....

Welcome back to the last term in year 1...our summer term!
Please see the attached newsletter to find out about what we have planned for the children.
This term our topic is about 'Explorers'. We will be learning all about what an explorer needs and the types of places that could be explored. In addition to thus we will also find out about 'Jambiani', a place in Zanzibar. We will compare it to Padiham and note any similarities and differences.
Please could you ensure that your child has a full P.E. kit each week. It is incredibly important that your child takes part. A P.E. kit includes a white T-shirt, black shorts and pumps.
Here we are enjoying some activities in class as we learn how to share and play together.
Well come back to a new term and Happy New Year to all our children and their families.
We have another busy term planned with lots of work based on our theme of Explorers. We will be reading stories and information books about space exploration and looking at famous explorers from the past in our history work.
Look out for the information sheet which will be sent home soon with more information about what we will learn in the other subject areas.
We are busy preparing our classroom for winter and Christmas. We already have our Christmas tree up and have created some super Christmas displays. Here we are in the reading igloo reading some Christmas books.
We had a lovely start to our week this week with a samba workshop! We all got the chance to play an instrument and joined in with Abbey who led us through different pitches, speeds and volumes of music. The children had a great time. Please look out for the letters which will come home soon about an after school Samba music club at Shuttleworth High School which take place every Tuesday.
We all enjoyed creating our firework pictures using finger paints. Our glittery fireworks were really sparkling!

As part of our topic on 'The place where we live' we have recently visited our local park. The children had a fantastic time and the weather was superb! We have looked at maps of Padiham and even found some of our own houses using Google maps. We have also enjoyed looking at our school and seeing how our garden area has changed over the last few months.
We are all settling in well in our new class. So far we have looked at Topsy and Tim books, The Large Family and Charlie and Lola in our literacy work. We have read the stories and written our own sentences to match.
Our maths work has all been about reading numbers, ordering numbers, counting in 10s and 2d shapes!
Here we all are in our costumes celebrating Roald Dahl Day last week.
