A week of stars!

It has been quite a week in Year 1! After our final rehearsals, on Wednesday we were ready to perform our magnificent production ‘The Landlord’s Cat’. Our school hall was packed for both performances and the children were truly amazing! They sang, danced and told the Christmas story from the perspective of the stealthy landlords cat! It was a tremendous performance from all of Key Stage One and we felt immensely proud of every single child.

Meanwhile, in-between rehearsals, Christmas lunch and performances, our learning has continued. In maths the children explored mass and measured different items around the classroom, ordering the items from the heaviest to the lightest. We discovered that the biggest thing is not always the heaviest!

In English, the children have been writing the Christmas story. They have been practising orally rehearsing each sentence before they write it. We had some super examples of this in class and we were further impressed by many of our children re-reading each sentence to check it made perfect sense.

Our science lesson this week was all about staying safe in the dark. We investigated different materials and found the most reflective ones to keep Plop, the baby owl, safe at night.

Next week we will be busy with Christmas crafts, our Pantomime and our Christmas party. It will be quite a week!
