The children in KS 1 gathered together to think about what happens on Ash Wednesday.
We have been reading Supertato: Veggies Assemble by Sue Hendra. We created our own Super Veggies to help rescue Supertato. We thought very carefully about what would turn an ordinary vegetable into a Super Veggie! When our Super Veggies were finished, we went to train them, to see what their super powers were. Our veggies did some heavy boulder lifting with their massive muscles, climbing up walls using their ninja know-how…they even learnt to play hopscotch!
Hooray for Super Veggies!
Year 1 have followed in the footsteps of Alexander Graham Bell by designing and creating their own telephones.
They were all designed to have at least two unique features. Some of Year 1’s phones designs were:
A phone that flies to your ear when somebody calls you.
A phone that disappears when you aren’t using it.
A phone that even does your shopping for you!
WE APOLOGISE FOR ANY INCONVENIENCE BUT SCHOOL WILL NOT OPEN UNTIL 10AM THIS MORNING. PLEASE BE PATIENT AS STAFF MAKE THEIR WAY TO SCHOOL. IT IS IMPORTANT WE KEEP EVERYONE SAFE.
We are learning about science hero Alexander Graham Bell. We learnt that he invented the telephone, so we decided to be just like him and find out lots of information about telephones. We discovered the difference between old and new phones, then we had a go at making cup and string phones. Like any successful inventor does, we made a few learning mistakes: they kept breaking when we pulled them too tight, and we couldn’t hear our partner if we didn’t pull them tight enough! Eventually, we got it just right and could talk to our partner – even when we couldn’t see them! Year 1 have definitely caught the inventing bug; I wonder what they will invent next…
This week our youngest children presented the story of Jesus’ birth to us in the most special and magical way. It was hard to believe some of these little ones are still only four years old! We were presented with enthusiastic singing along with beautiful dancing and such clear, strong narrators. It was wonderful to see how full church was and we thank you for the support you showed the children. Well done to everyone who helped make this such a memorable occasion.
