- About Us
Take a look at some of the exciting things we have been learning this week!
On Tuesday morning, we had a special visit from a very clever man who taught us all about Judo! He used to compete for England and really inspired us to get moving and join the local Judo club!
In Science this week, we have been learning all about materials. Santa rang and said that he wanted to know if we could sort all the unwanted and broken toys he had in the bottom of his sack into groups for him. After lots of discussion and exploring, we decided we could sort the toys by the material of which they were made.
On Wednesday morning, we all went on a trip to the local cinema to watch Secret Life of Pets 2! The Year 1 teachers were so proud that everyone behaved so sensibly and safely whilst we travelled to Darlington. The film was so funny and we all had a wonderful morning!
Congratulations to this year's fancy dress competition winners: Maisie, Logan and Theo! You all looked terrifying! :-) Have a wonderful half term everyone and we will see you all in a week!
In Science we have been discovering our senses and really putting them to the test! In Miss Macieira's classroom, we were given the task to identify different objects whilst blind folded! This meant we had to trust our sense of touch to identify each object! Some of them were very confusing, like the coconut! We were then tasked with identifying different smells that were within smell pots! We could not see the object but were given a list of possible items such as vinegar, coffee, ketchup, hot chocolate powder, onions and soap! Some were definitely nicer to smell than others!
In Miss Lywood's room we tested our sense of sight by playing a tricky game of i-spy where we had to count the number of fairy tale characters we could see! We then used our sense of hearing to try and identify sounds we had listened to in a sound box such as, running water, a horn and keys.
In Miss Dodd's room we were VERY pleased to be testing our sense of taste! We were given food to taste that was either, sweet, salty, sour or bitter! It is safe to say not many of us were able to keep a straight face when eating a lemon!
