R/YR1's Trip to the Sealife Centre 

on Thursday 28th March we had a family appreciation morning. our mommy's , daddy's, nanny's and grandads came to school to see us and do activities. some of our families couldn't make it so we had our teachers as our family.

Lost and Found Icebergs. As part of our work on the book lost and found, we made our own icebergs, our teachers placed some creatures inside our icebergs that we had to rescue by melting the iceberg. we used salt and warm water and watched the ice melt and the creatures be free.

On Wednesday 27th, R/YR1 went on a walk to the local shops to use their maths knowledge of money and given 25p to buy some sweets. They had to choose their sweet and then go to the till with the money to pay the shop keeper for the sweets.


The class were well behaved and really enjoyed walking to the shops and buying their sweets, we were very proud of them!

During the Autumn term R/YR1 have been learning all about ourselves, they have learnt about different parts of the body and our senses. As part of our topic we have been on a sensory walk to the woods to listen to the rustling of the leaves and see what Autumn objects we could find. We have also made fruit kebabs and our own pizza faces.


R/YR1 have started to visit the Sutton Coldfield Donkey Sanctuary, we have lots of fun brushing, feeding and helping to walk the donkeys around the inside arena.
