P.1A Newsround

P.1A had a busy penultimate week, with Sports Day, our class assembly and our fantastic visit from Butterfly World!

Here are some snaps from the sports:

Well done to everyone for participating and showing good sportsmanship! Moreover, well done to all of the P.1s for putting on such a confident show at the assembly.

Today we also enjoyed a visit from Jordan who got us doing some Judo moves and having lots of fun on the floor!

All this- and we have still got Pinkie’s Got Talent to look forward to!

P.1A’s Wild Morning!

After a super assembly this morning P.1 had some very special visitors to our classroom! Andrew from Butterfly World brought us a fabulous menagerie including Millie the Millipede, Jackie the Python, stick insects,  cockroaches and a tarantula! This was all part of our rainforest topic and provided an amazing way to really get ‘hands on’ with our learning. Here’s a taster:

Last week P.1A were busy learning more about what makes our favourite toys work. We built electrical circuits with switches, lights and motors, and also got to play with magnets to explore the idea of pushing and pulling toys to make them move. Mr Marshall also had a little trip down memory lane courtesy of the homework about parents’ favourite toys- fondly remembering Gloworms, Matchbox cars and He Man action figures! Many thanks for the contributions.

We also did our final auditions for Pinkie’s Got Talent, with Craig and Georgia making it in front of the judges- and congratulations to Georgia who will be performing in front of the school next week! Of course we have all been practising for our class assembly on Thursday 20th June, and are looking forward to telling the school and our parents and carers about our learning this year.

And if all this wasn’t enough, we were also VERY excited to spend a little time with our new teacher for P.2- Mrs Davidson! Phew what a week… and only two more to go!

Last week P.1A were buys putting the final touches to our Henri Rousseau- inspired jungle artwork- and the results were fantastic! We’ll be getting them up in our own little class art-gallery next week.

We had lots of fun with our Buddies, and enjoyed playing with the loose-parts playground equipment. We also chose our own topic to investigate until the end of term- and although it was a close vote we chose to look at TOYS! We spent time thinking about what we know and what we would like to find out and will start looking at it in greater depth next week.

Here are some of our highlights:

  • When me and my friend were outside with our buddies playing the baby game
  • Everything!
  • I did a v so well!
  • Listening about the oceans at the P.4 assembly
