On Tuesday 3rd December, Year 1 and 2 enjoyed a visit from the 'Flying Pizza Theatre Company.'

They performed 'The Snow Queen' for the children and they thoroughly enjoyed it.

The whole show was cleverly performed by just two people playing all the different characters.

Livvy, from Poplars, said 'I loved it when the reindeer spoke because it was very funny!'

Junior, from Poplars, said 'I liked it when the Snow Queen came because she was controlling the little boy!'

At the beginning of this term, something very exciting happened…. we found a dragon’s egg in our outdoor play area! We were worried that a dragon may have dropped it when flying past the school, so we decided to take care of it. Luckily, we had been learning all about which materials help to keep things warm, so we made a nest for the egg out of twigs and wrapped it in tin foil to incubate it. A couple of weeks later, the egg hatched! It hatched at around the same time as the chicks we have in school. We learned all about how to look after these baby animals, and how gentle we need to be with them. We now take the baby dragon for walks every day so that it can get lots of exercise, and wrap him up to keep him warm when he sleeps. We wonder how big he will grow!

Year 1 took part in an exciting 3D art project where we created a castle and knights themed wall display. Many parents came in to help us. First, we made pebbles or flat plates with newspaper, then we covered our shapes with newsprint and finally we used coloured tissue & metallic papers to add to colour to our artwork. Art Solutions then put all our artwork together on an amazing display in the lower school hall. We are very proud of our work.

Farm day - Gemma's Farm visited us in the summer term; there were a number of different farmyard animals to see and there was even a pink chicken! We were able to hold and groom some of them animals and although it was very hot, it was lots of fun.  


A Royal Picnic - Year 1 celebrated the Royal wedding in style.

We all sat together on the field in a great big circle and had a picnic together. We had sausage rolls, salad, crisps and a cake. It was lots of fun; we really enjoyed our celebrations!


Tennis Festival - We took part in a Year 1 tennis festival. We were able to practise a number of different skills. These included: accuracy, balance, speed, agility and hand-eye co-ordination. It was lots of fun and we learnt many new games, led by our super Year 5 helpers!
