Year 1 found a spaceship in their classroom!
On Monday 5th November, the Year 1 children came into school to find a spaceship had crash landed in the classroom! We did some investigating around the class and found lots of photographs of famous astronauts, and pictures of planets. We read books that we found scattered around and watched videos that had been put on the iPads. We explored some bright blue slime and built rockets from Lego based on some images which we found on a table and we also discovered some sparkly Space dust! After some time, we came to the conclusion that this must mean our new topic for this term will be “ZOOM!”: a topic based on Space. We´ve been told the police and special scientists are still investigating the spaceship crash landing and they will let us know if they find anything out or hear anything about aliens on Earth!
Year 1 Superhero Day
At the end of October, Year 1 enjoyed a fabulous Superhero Day where children and adults came to school in costumes! There was a wide variety of heroic icons represented - from courageous characters such a Spiderman and Batman, to the everyday vocational heroes like doctors, nurses and Police. Throughout the day, children enjoyed a range of activities including a “Superhero Training Camp” as well as team building and problem solving challenges.
All proceeds on the day went towards Cruz Roja.
