Willow Class

Welcome to Class 1's webpage!
Here you will find photographs with captions of all the activities and  learning we have been doing at school.
Class 1 had a fabulous trip to Exmouth and the children were beautifully behaved!
Class 1 children had a great time during our Hub sports day! They all put in extra effort and enjoyed meeting friends and cousins and making new friends. Thank you to the Year 6's for their superb efforts and congratulations to those representing France who won the overall competition!
Class 1 have been celebrating Chinese New Year. Miss Harrison organised lots of interesting activities for the children, including counting and writing numerals in Chinese, using water colour paints to make fans, retelling the story of Chinese New Year using animal shadow puppets and eating noodles! The children had a great time and learnt the animal year they were born in and their lucky numbers. Kung Hei Fat Choy!
As part of our Jigsaw theme of work; Being Me in My World; we have been thinking of ways to make sure everyone in our class feels happy, safe and secure.  We've also asked and discussed the questions; 'How can we help each other to learn?' and 'How can we help each other to be good friends?'These are some of the ideas we came up with and you can see from the photographs we all ready do these things in Class 1 without even realising! Well Done Class !

Science and English
The children in Class 1 have been following instructions that they  have learnt in English. They have sown lettuce seeds and are learning about how to nurture them. They are excited about observing them growing and looking forward to tasting and comparing the different varieties planted!
The children in Class 1 have been busy mark making during their independent learning time. Writing labels, messages, poems, songs, cards and stories!
In maths children have enjoyed learning to tell the time!
Class 1 have been busy preparing for their Divali celebrations. Children made coloured rice which they then used to create Rangoli rice patterns. They made Divas with clay and decorated them with paint. The children designed Mehndi patterns and also made sweets traditional eaten by children during Divali.
The final celebration! This included the lighting of the Divas; eating pompodoms, naan bread, mango chutney and the sweets while listening to traditional Indian music! 
The Year 1 children have been putting their artistic skills into action whilst celebrating Holi!
