Thursday is our banquet celebration. Please remember to wear clothes fit for a king or queen! At the start of the term we had amazing costumes with princesses, knights and kings. The day will involve a banquet celebration with food and dancing.
Today in school we are making bread rolls to eat at our banquet!
This half term we are learning about the important jobs of postmen and post women who deliver our parcels and letters. Hope fully by now you have all received your postcard that we wrote and posted to you.
We had a visit from a postman who explained his job and what he wears.
Thank you for all providing costumes for our performance Prickly Hay. We have been busy learning the songs and practising our dancing!
We are looking forward to you all coming to celebrate our successes and watch our performance!
Today we are going to enjoy our Christmas lunch served by all the adults in our school!
Happy new year to all parents and children in Magpie Class.
Thank you for all the wonderful gifts. We all had an amazing Christmas and we are looking forward to some exciting learning in 2019!
This term our topic is Poles Apart.
We will be focusing on Geography and looking at the two polar regions - The North and South Pole.
We will be reading a book about a polar bear who travels to the South pole with his friends, some penguins !
Please ask your children about what they already know about polar bears and what they would like to find out more!
We were very excited about the snow in Weyford. We thought Mr White the polar bear would have loved to play outside with us. We played out in the snow with our friends and really enjoyed ourselves.
We have been really busy in year 1. We visited the Winchester science centre to inspire our new topic. We have lift off! We will be learning about the Moon landing and Neil Armstrong. We will also learn about Tim Peake's amazing contribution to space exploration.
At the science centre we tested rockets and explored the space area to learn about planets and stars. Our highlight was visiting the planetarium and learning about star constellations.
Last week it was World Book Day.
We looked at books by Roald Dahl and in Year 1 we read The Magic Finger. We all wore some amazing costumes and enjoyed our day visiting other classes and learning about different Roald Dahl books.
This week we are planning an experiment to test force.
Does a car move further if we push it harder and with more force? We all agreed it would travel further but how can we prove it?
We hope you have a relaxing and restful Easter holiday.
We look forward to seeing you after the Easter break.
Today we will be exploring our school grounds to find a perfect home for stick man! Ask your children what they found out!
We found out that plants need to water, air , soil and light to survive.
We also discovered that plants need to grow and distribute new seeds to grow new plants. We made helicopters and used them outside. We saw how the wind can carry seeds to new places !
This week in Maths we have been learning about Capacity and volume.
Capacity is how much the container can hold. The volume is how much is in the container.
We loved using the water to fill a full container, half full, half empty, nearly full, nearly empty and empty. Luckily the weather was really warm so we could measure outside.
Have a wonderful half term holiday.
