Welcome to Year 1!
A big warm welcome to all the Year 1 children and their families! What a fantastic time we've had in Year 1 up to now...going far far away for our Autumn term topic 'Once Upon a Time' where we enjoyed a Middleforth Ball, made and decorated cupcakes, learnt ballroom dancing steps and did some castle building. We boarded Middleforth Airways in the Spring term and travelled all the way to India for our topic 'Spice Delight'. We were greeted by Zora who taught us all about life in India. We made Indian headresses, tasted traditional Indian food and learnt about their festivals and traditions. This term we are getting up close and personal with nature as we start our new topic 'Bring Yer Wellies'. Let the mud and mini-beast adventure begin!
We recently became mother hens to a lots of chicks, take a look:
The Summer Group have been very busy bees at Forest School:
In line with our Eco-school status and in our bid to go paper-free we have launched online homework. Each week children will receive a 'Marvellous Maths' and 'Fun Phonics' task which can be completed online or in their green homework book which will be sent home each Friday and should be returned to school by the following Wednesday.
There will be no more homework set this year (hurray!!!) however if you didn't manage to complete last week's Fit Fortnight task it can be found via the link below:
