This week the children in 1DJ have been finding out all about minibeast habitats. The learning has covered some of our science, topic and english sessions and has been lots of fun.
First we wrote a letter to a minibeast to tell them what we already knew about them and ask the some questions we’d like to know the answers to. We then researched the habitats and life of the minibeast and wrote a letter back to ourselves answering lots of the questions.
We then used this information to design the perfect hotel room for the bug, thinking carefully about its needs for shelter, food, temperature, light/dark and perhaps a bit of entertainment during its stay.
The children then wrote a shopping list, ready for a trip to Bugkea, detailing all of the things needed for the hotel room and why they had chosen to include them. We then had lots of fun actually creating the room using all sorts of different resources. We are very happy with the finished hotel and think that the bugs would love to stay there on holiday!
The Year 2 children in 1DJ had a fantastic time creating some healthy sandwiches fit for a superhero. They researched the main food groups and tried their best to make a balanced and healthy snack using a range of ingredients. As you can see they were very tasty and we were really proud of the children who tried some healthy, new foods!!!
The children in 1DJ have created a superb gallery of pictures and collages using only the materials they found whilst on our woodland walk.
The challenge was to create a character we might see wandering through a magical woodland. As you can see their imaginations ran wild and some of the creations are magnificent. We hope you enjoy them. Let us know your favourites by leaving a comment at the end of the post.
Thank you Mr Jackson
On Wednesday the children from Key Stage One all went out to explore the local area. We had a lovely walk from school, through some of the streets and along the paths by the beck, looking out for lots of different features. We found the houses were all very different. There was a wide range of places where people worked. There were some lovely open spaces to encourage nature and a mixture of different types of signs for people who use the streets and paths. The children were fantastic and really represented the school well, being polite and cheery for passers-by and local residents. Thank you to the volunteers who came with us!
We have had a brilliant day linking our topic, art and science work together. We were trying to find the different combinations of colours so that we could paint all the different feathers on the Parrot. Continue reading
We are very proud to present our version of the story using Talk for Writing. This method really helped all of us to remember the story and include some impressive and important vocabulary in our own writing.
Well done everyone!
The children in 1DJ had a fantastic afternoon last Friday, telling all their friends about some of their favourite books. As part of the previous week’s homework the children were asked to bring in a ‘storybag’.
The storybags had to have a few items in them linked to one of our favourite books or stories. Some bags contained clothes, costumes, toys, lists, games, models, pictures and instructions.
Our friends from Year 1 and Reception came over to have a look at our bags and ask us questions about them. We had a brilliant time!
Well done to everyone and thank you all for your efforts!

It has been a great start to maths week in 1CD, 1ZH and 1DJ. We have already had fun with maths art and an awesome maths trail around school!
Later this week we will be having a grand maths quiz – who will be dynamite with their digits and perfection with their patterns? We will have to wait and see.
We are all looking forward to welcoming our parents and family into school on Thursday afternoon (2:30pm) to come and see some marvellous maths in action!
Quiz winners and photos will be posted later on in the week. Come back soon and have a look.
