Class 1 fun!

We have been writing about our favourite things in school, how to be a 'rainbow friend' (from the story Rainbow Fish) and most exciting...a letter to our friend Esther who moved to Gibraltar in February! Esther sent us a powerpoint full of pictures and stories [...]

Reception’s seaside poems!

We then used alliteration to describe it! 'I love finding shelly, shiny sea-shells!' 'I love surfing on washy, wavy waves' This morning reception performed their poems to the year [...]

We made sure we included our eyebrows, eyelashes, ears and hair! We had a giggle looking back through the portraits as a class and trying to guess who they were! We finished just [...]

We used a ruler to make marks on the [...]

Measuring in class 1!

Over the last two weeks we've been looking at measurement. Last week we were looking at the difference between height and length. We created a class height chart and compared each others height!
