My Money Week

During 'My Money Week' 2015 Year 1 learnt a lot about how to look after money when they are adults and the important decisions to be made about what to do with money. In the photographs the class are working in small groups to discuss Money issues of, Spend, Save or Give. The children all had strong opinions and a lively debate was held in the classrooom.

Summer term - Year 1 found a mysterious message in their classroom and were sent outside to follow a set of clues. The clues led us to a Treasure chest full of Pirate booty. 'Ship ahoy me hearties'. Climb aboard for our new topic, 'TREASURE'

Best Times

Here we can see some examples of Jackson Pollock's amazing art work and the artist himself in his New York Studio. As artists in Year 1 we have started our own Jackson Pollock style paintings and to give us more space for freedom of expression we took our art area outdoors! Mrs. Fleming bravely took on the challenge, armed with pots of coloured paints and wearing strong wellies and gowned up to the neck!!! So far the results have been wonderful. Here is a taster, with more to follow.

Visit to the post box on Liverpool Road.

One Stop and Sandbrook Way

Year 1 walked around the local area of Kings Meadow School

Our topic this term is,  Who am I? and as Geographers we studyed the local area including the roads, homes, shops, church and clinic. We then posted a letter to our home address at the post box outside One Stop convenience store. There were many opportunities for a photo shoot and an enjoyable walk was had by all. Back at school we have been studying local maps and searching for our school and homes on Google Earth.

During Poetry Week Year 1 thought of 'Pie Corbett' style actions to accompany the poem Monkey Puzzle by Julia Donaldson. It was great fun and very successful at helping us to remember it! Take a look at our photos!
