Perseverance, by Mrs Swift

Date: 3rd Feb 2021 @ 2:48pm

We watched a video about perseverance called Soar where a girl tried hard to make her plane fly.  When is did not go to plan she did not give up until she achieved her dreams. We wrote what we wanted to achieve on paper aeroplanes and then threw our planes to see if we could make our dreams soar.

Science - investigating materials, by Mrs Swift

Date: 1st Feb 2021 @ 1:35pm

In year one today during science we have had lots of fun investigating materials. We had lots of questions to ask and tried to test the materials against the differenty properties.  Does it float? Does it bend? Is it magnetic? etc  Not surprisingly they all really enjoyed testing the items in water.

Home learning, by Y1-Teacher

Date: 28th Jan 2021 @ 9:57am

We have all been really impressed with the home learning submissions we have been receiving.  The children (and grown ups at home) have been working very hard.  The children have been continuing to look at Shabbat as part of the R.E. and have drawn plates of food to show what they eat during their own special celebrations. 

In English we have been looking at a new book, The Lion Inside, they had to tell us what they already knew about mice and lions and then explore the character of the mouse and lion in the book. 


The children have been set a weekly phonics scavenger hunt and they seem to have been enjoying it finding lots of things around their home.


Keep up the hard work, stay safe and enjoy your learning.

Judaism - Shabbat, by Mrs Swift

Date: 20th Jan 2021 @ 2:32pm

Today for our R.E. lesson we learnt about Shabbat.  We looked at some items that people of Jewish faith might use as part of Shabbat.

Year on science and DT hunt, by Mrs Swift

Date: 19th Jan 2021 @ 2:47pm

Year one had fun this afternoon looking around the playground to see what examples of fasteners or joins they could find.  We then spent some time on our science work hunting for materials and deciding if they were human made or natural.

Christian Values Day - SERVICE, by Mrs Wilson

Date: 26th Apr 2019 @ 5:55pm

We started today with Collective Worship with Robin, where we learned about Jesus washing the disciples' feet.  Although he was the most important person, he still served his disciples.

We then learned about people who serve us in our community - we made a long list!  People who help us include doctors, nurses, police officers, fire fighters, dentists, road workers, carers and teachers!

We created collages of people who help us, which are now on display in our corridor, so look out for them when you next visit school.

World Book Day, by Mrs Wilson

We are looking forward to celebrating World Book Day on Thursday 7th March.  All children are invited to come to school dressed as their favourite character from any fairy tale or fantasy story - the choice is yours!  On the day, we will be reading and sharing our favourite stories and taking part in lots of activities based around our faourite books.

We look forward to seeing as many parents and carers as possible at Christ Church, Wharton, on Tuesday morning for our Church Assembly.  We have lots to share with you!

Snowy weather, by Mrs Wilson

Date: 1st Feb 2019 @ 5:10pm

Thank you to all the parents and carers for their support in the change in routine at home time during the cold weather.  If we have any more snow, could you please ensure your child brings a pair of wellies or other suitable outdoor footwear plus a change of socks or tights.   Thank you.

Christian Values Day PERSERVERANCE, by Mrs Wilson

Date: 15th Jan 2019 @ 4:52pm

We had a wonderful day on Friday learning about the meaning of perserverance.  We had to persevere and try to build a tower of bricks using only tweezers (really tricky!), we tried hard to thread beads on a string using only one hand (this was really tricky too!) and aim quoits to land on a cone (this was the trickiest of all!)

Art Day, by Mrs Swift

Date: 29th Jun 2018 @ 3:17pm

Pear Class really enjoyed Art Day which was inspired by the work of Hundertwasser.  We were asked to create a piece that represented something from our school.  Year one chose the guinea pigs.  We also decorated butterflies in the same style as Hundertwasser's paintings. 

Butterfly release, by Mrs Swift

Date: 28th Jun 2018 @ 3:12pm

We were amazed this morning to find five fully emerged Painted Lady Butterflies.  We released them this afternoon in our Sensory Garden.  As most of the children predicted the butterflies flew west towards the pond area.

Butterflies, by Mrs Swift

We were very excited this morning in Year One.  We came in to find that three of our five butterflies had emerged.  We will be releasing them in a day or two but for now we are enjoying watching them.
