Year 1 children loved spending the afternoon with their dad, stepdad, uncle, granddad etc. this afternoon. They played phonics reading games, shared stories, designed front covers for books and even decorated gingerbread men together! Thank you so much to all who attended - the children loved it and it was great to see so many grown ups sharing in their children’s learning!
On Monday and Tuesday we went on our trip to Weston Park as part of our Victorians topic. We had a fantastic day that was filled with activities. First, we made our very own cup and ball that we decorated with bright colours. After that, we went on a walk around the grounds and saw Weston Hall. We saw a stone pineapple at the entrance and learnt that the Victorians often had pineapples around their homes to show people how wealthy they were. Next we played with Victorian toys outside, there were wooden hoops, skipping ropes, croquet, wooden skittles and quoits. Lunchtime came and we all ate our food together in the hall. In the afternoon, we dressed up in Victorian clothes, played with Victorian toys and learnt about Victorian nurseries. The children thoroughly enjoyed the day!
Year 1 children loved dressing up as their favourite characters to celebrate World Book Day.

Making a healthy salad.
Year 1 had a fantastic time visiting the Think Tank in Birmingham. They learned all about the organs in their bodies by meeting Tommy the life size doll and opening him up inside. The children asked brilliant questions about the organs and some children even knew the function of certain organs. As well as the body workshop, children also spent time in the Kid City where there was plenty of opportunities of role play and construction. Children also loved visiting the science garden and had lots of fun on the car with square wheels and the giant hamster wheel! Children thoroughly enjoyed the day at the museum but they also enjoyed a little nap on the way home too!
