Welcome

Year 1 is taught by Mr Hudson and Mrs Pike.

Outdoor Learning Week

With Year 2 the children collected sticks to make a fire, then they enjoyed toasting, and eating, marshmallows around the fire.

The children in KS1 took part in a cricket workshop led by Mr. Glen from Launceston Cricket Club. They watched a short film explaining the fun of cricket along with the teamwork, sportsmanship and respect involved in the game. Separated into two groups the children became two teams, England v Australia. Each team played a game of throwing and catching, with the children counting each catch. The winning team won a model cricket bat to display in their class.

Year 1 spent the afternoon learning about plants and what they need to grow. Mr Hudson showed the children different seeds, including seed potatoes. The children discussed whether seeds always needed soil or compost to grow. In groups, Classes 1 and 2 worked together to plant sunflower seeds in compost, broad bean seeds in plastic bottles and cress seeds on cotton wool, in plastic bags. The groups also had a nature walk around the school gardens where they learnt about the life cycle of an apple tree.
 

Look at us, having a great time whizzing around on balance bikes. We learnt that controlling the bikes was easier if we took big strides.  Riding these balance bikes, with support from Arena Sports, will help us when we learn to cycle on pedal bikes.
 

This term we have been looking at Space.
Our Year 1's have transitioned from Reception in a very mature and grown up way.
