Will Class one be on the naughty or nice list?!

Yesterday we had a very special visitor to class one- an elf! He came with a very special letter from Santa Claus saying that he had come to watch us so that he can report to Santa on whether we will be on the naughty or nice list for Christmas this year. The elf flies back to the North Pole every evening to let Santa know how our behaviour has been each day. We are trying very hard to share, help others and be kind because we all want to be on the nice list this year!

We are very excited to have the elf with us. Can you help us to think of a name for him?

The Very Hungry Caterpillar trip

What a fantastic day out we had at Nottingham Theatre to watch ‘The Hungry Caterpillar.’ We all enjoyed the coach journey and we spotted lots of things out the window. We also sang lots of songs to pass the time!

The show was fantastic, we particularly enjoyed it when we saw the ‘big fat caterpillar’ at the end. It was very funny!

We were very tired on the way home and some of us even fell asleep the coach!

All the children behaved incredibly. Thanks to all the parents and staff who accompanied us on the trip. We had a great time!

End of year party!

The children (and teachers) have had a fabulous time today at our end of year party. Yesterday the full time children made sandwiches and we had some very generous donations of food from parents. We sat outside under our party tent and ate lots of yummy party food. We then played a game of pass the parcel and finished with musical bumps. We had lots of fun!

I would like to take this opportunity to wish all the children and parents in class one a very lovely six weeks holiday!

First full day!

What a lovely time the F1 children had yesterday on their first full transition day!

They were all very excited to go to the hall to have dinner and all of them tried hard to eat all of it up! The children enjoyed play time on the big playground too.

In class, we baked and decorated special rainbow fish biscuits. We enjoyed mixing the ingredients and icing the biscuits before eating them just before home time.

Library trip

What a fantastic trip the F2 children had to the library on Wednesday. We were so excited to catch the bus and we walked really sensibly to the library. Two ladies called Kerry and Rebecca looked after us when we get there and showed us around.

We listened to a fantastic story and we even got the chance to join in with puppets. Lastly, we got given our library cards and we picked our own books to borrow and take home. We can’t wait to visit again already.

Ice Experiment

Today we have been fascinated by some strange rubber gloves. We found them this morning in our choosing area and we described them as ‘hard’ and ‘cold’. After a lot of thinking we concluded that there was ice inside the gloves and we enjoyed cutting them open and talking about how they felt and looked. We enjoyed watching (and feeling) them melt in our hands!

Where else might you find ice? How do you think the ice got inside the gloves? IMG_8612 IMG_8613

Growing

Class one have been excited today. Mr Huxley was kind enough to bring us in a courgette plant and we have enjoyed looking at it closely through our magnifying glasses and talking about what we can see.

This afternoon the F2 children have been doing some observational drawings of the plant. We can’t wait to paint our drawings next week.

… But he was still hungry!!

Today we have been tasting the fruits out of the story ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar.’ We have tried apples, pears, plums, strawberries and oranges. Afterwards we thought really hard about what our favourite fruit was and we put a photograph of ourselves underneath it on our graph. The most popular fruit in class one was strawberries, can you see what the least popular fruit was? Could you tell an adult about the fruits you tried? What did they feel, smell and taste like?
