We have been working very hard for the past few weeks, learning our lines, practising our singing as well as making sure we are prepared for all the faces in the audience to watch us!
After lots of hard work and practise, today we finally did our special nativity play for our grown-ups and what a success!
All of the Year 1 team would like to say how proud we are of the children and would like to thank the parents for all the effort and hard work they’ve put into the costumes for the children. We really appreciate it!
We hope you enjoyed our play just as much as we did!
Here are some photographs to remind you of our special play...

Breakfast with Santa
11th December 2014
Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way.Oh what fun it is...
Santa came to see us this morning and we were lucky enough to have breakfast with him, some of us even got the chance to tell him what we would like for Christmas. After that we enjoyed some cereal and toast, whilst having a sing song!
Before Santa left to get back on his sleigh, which he parked it on the roof - he left a big, black sack full of presents for us.
Santa Claus is coming to town...
Ho ho ho!
Oh what fun we had!
Enjoying our cereal
We had lots of fun!

Christmas party day
We started the day by decorating a Christmas party hat. We used sequins and glitter to make it nice and sparkly! We also created a personalised placemat. We enjoyed having a dance and playing games in the hall. After that we settled down to enjoy some party food and listen to some Christmas songs. All of us were well and truly full up after all the delicious party food!
Once again, we would like to say a big, big thank you to all parents for their generosity in providing snacks for the party!
Posting our letters to Santa!
18th December 2014
All the children in 1KO have been very good this year!!
We have been busy writing our letters to Santa in class and today we walked to the post box to post our letters. We sang some songs whilst walking to the post box, as well as making sure we kept safe along the way!
When we arrived at the post box we gave the envelope a kiss and made a wish before posting the letters.
Chinese New Year Celebrations!
We celebrated Chinese New Year, by wearing the colour of the China flag. Alice's Mum and Dad came into our class to show us how to use chopsticks correctly. We wrote our names and then Alice's Dad wrote it in Chinese writing underneath.
We tasted lots of Chinese food including prawn crackers, spring rolls and noodles. Alice's Mum and Dad gave us all a fortune cookie to take home.
After lunch we listened to the story about why the years are named after animals, then we made dragon masks and flags. We also listened to Chinese music and watched a real 'Dragon dance'.

World Book Day
We came to school dressed as our favourite book character! We discussed our character and some of us had the opportunity to share the story that our character was from. We took part in some super activities including making jam tarts with the Queen of hearts, acting out traditional tales, making a bookmark as well as listening to some traditional tales with Alice from Alice in Wonderland. We had a super day and enjoyed eating our jam tarts during the afternoon at our civilised ‘tea party’!
Red Nose Day - 13th March
We all put on a funny face to raise money for Comic Relief.
What a bunch of funny faces!!!
For Mother's Day we all planted a bulb to take home. We could choose to plant a Dutch Iris or a Freeshia bulb. Which did you choose?
It's Spring Time!
We have been watching the chicks on the webcam.
The chicks moved into a box with a lamp.
The lamp kept them warm.
They needed water and grain to eat.
The chicks came to visit us in Year One.
There were two girls and two boys.
The lighter chicks are the girls.
Some of us got to hold them.
We were very excited to see the chicks.
They were very fluffy and cute!!
They kept cheeping!
We made tasty Easter nest cakes to take home for Easter.
First we chose what colour cake case we wanted.
Then we broke up the chocolate into the bowl.
Next we melted the chocolate in the microwave.
It took 60 seconds to melt the chocolate.
After that we mixed cornflakes into the chocolate.
Then we spooned the mixture into the cake cases.
Then we chose eggs to put into the nests.
Visit from our Community Police Officers Zoe and Johnny.
Before we finished for the Easter Holidays, Our Community Police Officers, came into Year One to teach us what to do if a stranger tries to talk to us.
Zoe and Johnny talked to us about stranger danger.
We learnt what to do if a stranger talks to us.
The rules are, Shout, Run, Tell someone!
Look who came into school today!!

St Philip and St Paul with Wesley
As part of our RE topic we took a walk to the church to have a look at the different artefacts and ask the questions that we had written for Vicar Gibbs. Year one were praised on their outstanding behaviour. All of the children sat and listened to Vicar Gibbs and walked around the church sensibly as we learnt that a church is a very special place.
What we want to find out about the Church.
The church is taller than the trees!
Vicar Gibbs greets us at the church door.
Vicar Gibbs tells us the rules of the church.
