Thank you to all the crew members of Swanage Lifeboat who gave up their time to show us around their amazing lifeboats and lifeboat station. We had a brilliant morning learning about the boats and what they do.
Year 1 visited Corfe Castle for a packed day of train travel, castle exploring and rain. We enjoyed huddling into King John’s toilets, three of them, side-by-side, for chatting. We learned that the king got so fed up with being cold he invented the dressing-gown to keep himself warm. Also, girls did not wear knickers, apparently.
Here are some pictures of the day:
Year 1 share books with their buddies in year 5 & 6 every week.
Thanks to all the children (and parents/grandparents!) who supported our Fairtrade Breakfast this morning. They enjoyed hot chocolate, juice, bananas and toast and jam. Key Stage 2 tomorrow! Also, thank you to the staff and PTA who provided and organized the breakfast.
On Friday afternoons, year 1 share books with reading buddies in year 5 or year 6.
One of the highlights of the year! This year’s chicks began to hatch on Monday. For more details, ask anyone in year 1.
Congratulations to the seven Year 1 writers who were winners in the My First Story Competition. Their stories will now be published in a book called ‘Tales from the Southwest’.
Year 1 have been eagerly waiting for their eggs to hatch, and on Friday it finally happened! There are five chicks: two are white, two are yellow and one is black. There names are Fluffy, Snowy, Ginger, Pipsqueak and Feathers.
We have been very busy in Year 1! We’ve had a visit from a dentist, a trip to Monkey World, we’ve been working on the outside area of our classroom and taking part in Art Week.
