Healthy rainbow fruit kebabs

Date: 23rd May 2019 @ 1:18pm

Today Y1 used their cutting and slicing skills to make their own rainbow fruit kebab. Y1 firstly learned about the importance of washing our hands properly before preparing food then followed their own previously made recipe, trying to make their kebabs, interesting, patterned and use a variety of newly tried fruit from around the world. We had kiwis from China, grapes from Spain, pineapple from Hawaii, plus watermelons, oranges and bananas. Super tasting Y1.

Life skills in Y1

Date: 22nd May 2019 @ 9:54pm

Today in Y1, children learnt how to use a knife to prepare their own snack and observe the differences and similarities of flesh from a fruit. Y1 developed their fine motor control to cut, slice, peel and chop a variety of fruit. Using a knife is a life skill and is another step towards our fabulous Y1’s independence. Top chopping (and tasting!)

Over the weekend Mrs Roberts, Mrs Jones, Mr Widdowson and Mr Devereux ran the Manchester 10K, raising a whooping £700 (plus more with gift aid!) for charity.

Our summer walk with Scott the ranger.

Date: 17th May 2019 @ 8:15pm

This week year 1 have been learning about plants and the seasons we see them grow. We have looked at some common wild flowers and learned about the parts of plants and their functions. On Thursday Y1 were very lucky to be joined by Scott the park ranger on our summer walk. Scott helped children to identify some deciduous and evergreen trees in our fabulous Lyme Pitts park. Children loved making wild flower bracelets and roaming without the constraints of the classroom. As a thank you Y1 helped Scott to clean up the picnic area from any rubbish left behind by messy visitors. Sensational summer walk Y1.

Rugby with the Saints

Date: 13th May 2019 @ 8:32am

We were very lucky to take part in a rugby workshop led by James Roby and the other Saints players. We even got to meet Boots the mascot!

Fishy sharing in the aquarium.

Date: 9th May 2019 @ 10:38am

Y1 were tasked today with helping an aquarium to get ready for their opening day. Mr. Devereux had lots of fish and children had to try and put them into equal groups in our fish tanks. Children found lots of ways to share out our fish and even negotiated with other tables when they found an uneven school of fish. Perfect problem solving Y1.

Exteriors, interiors, hinges and sliders. What makes a house?

Date: 9th May 2019 @ 10:24am

This week children have been completing their small scale recycled houses, ready for Mr and Mrs Lego to choose a suitable house to live in. Children learned about some key design features that should be included into their house. We learned about the importance of hinges for safety and we looked at examples around our school on gates, doors and windows. We learned about sliders and how we could use them to add privacy to our house by using them for curtains that could be opened and closed. Children then were tasked to make the interior of their house more appealing by adding furniture, wallpaper and carpets. It’s going to be a very difficult decision for Mr and Mrs Lego. Next we will be evaluating our houses and thinking about what we could do different next time. Well done Y1! 

Rights-Respecting Schools Assembly -article 29

Date: 8th May 2019 @ 8:54am

The UNCRC article for this half term is article 29 - 'Education must develop every child's personalities, abilities and talents to the full. It must develop a child's respect for human rights, their parents, other cultures and the environment.' Three members of our Rights-Respecting Steering Group planned and led an assembly on looking after the environment: plastic pollution across the world; reducing/reusing/recycling; looking after our school environment. During the assembly, the children shared some ideas of things they, and the Eco Team, will be doing over this term to help take care of our local environment and also support the wider global campaign.

Story time!

Following on from World Book Day, some of the Y6 children wrote  stories about the adventures of  'Esteban the Great' (Pea Green Crayon) from the story 'The Day the Crayons Came Home'. They shared them with our Reception class on Friday - they listen really well!

Date: 1st May 2019 @ 3:57pm

A Fanatstic time was had by all when year 5 went back in time to meet the Saxons at Tatton Park. The children looked superb dressed in their Saxon outfits (A big thanks to all the parents for their help with this!) They took part in many activities including weaving, bread making and learning how to use shields when in battle. We learnt so much and have brought back lots of interesting facts to use in our Saxon assembly later this half term,

Can a house be recycled?

Date: 29th Apr 2019 @ 5:57pm

Today Y1 met Mr and Mrs Brick, our new Lego family. Holly and Mark Brick are in need of a good, solid, suitable home. Y1, using their knowledge of homes around the world are working hard to give Mr and Mrs Brick a lovely choice of forever homes to choose from. Today Y1 looked at the ways house exteriors are made. We looked at a real house being built in time lapse and we discussed the many ways in which we can join material together. Being as responsible as we can, we used lots of recycled material from Easter and began to make strong exteriors for our houses. Next we will be making our interior and looking at how we can add hinges and flaps to make our rooms and windows accessible for Mr and Mrs Brick. Cool construction Y1.

Our Victorian experience.

Date: 22nd Apr 2019 @ 7:01pm

To finish our Lowry inspired learning challenge, children learned about life for L.S. Lowry during his time in primary school. Children learned about the differences and similarities between schools in Victorian times and schools today, from equipment, rules and conditions to understanding that boys and girls would of been taught different things. Although Y1 enjoyed their time in a Victorian classroom they were all very glad to step back into our modern classroom, and thankfully there was no need for any caning. Great learning Y1.
