My Special Place

Today in Year One we introduced our new RE unit of work ‘Special Places’.

I told the children about my special place…the beach. It is my special place because I have many fond memories of being a young girl building sandcastles and eating ice creams with my family.

The children were given the task to really think about their special place. I was so shocked by their mature replies and explanations for why it was so special to them!

Well done Paddington Class! We have had such a great week!

A brilliant day had by all in Year One…

The children and staff in Year One had a brilliant day today completing lots of different activities for our new theme ‘Out of this world’.

We did the following activities:

  • found out the names of the planets
  • listened to a rap about the planets
  • made moon paintings
  • found out about craters
  • made astronaut helmets
  • made a split pin astronaut
  • made balloon rockets
  • had balloon rocket races

What was your favourite activity and why?

Well done for working hard!
