Guy Fawkes

The Puffins have been hard at work this week learning the ‘Three Little Pigs’ story for English, all about Guy Fawkes for History and place value in Maths they have earned their golden time. They had lots of fun dressing up and building fantastic ramps for their cars.

Fab week Puffins keep it up!



Bonfire Night


Today we started to think about bonfire night ready for Thursday. We started the lesson by thinking about what we already know about bonfire night and then learnt some new facts. We used this information to then make posters about keeping safe and giving key information.

Black History Month: Rosa Parks

To celebrate Black History Month we started to learn about Rosa Parks. The children were very interested in her story and had lots of questions to ask. They came to the conclusion that the way black people were treated was UNFAIR and it made them feel sad.

We used some actors and actresses to role play the story to allow the children to visually see what was happening. At each stage we explored our feelings and how we would feel in that situation. We then drew some fantastic portraits of Rosa Parks.


Our trip to Birmingham Art Museum


On Monday we were very excited to be going on a trip. We went on a green bus with Year 2 all the way to the city centre. When we got there we walked round the museum looking at all the artefacts, it was really interesting. Our favourite room was the big hoot room, with some of the owls from around the city centre. We chose our favourite owls and drew them on our clipboards. Next we went and enjoyed our lunch, we were very sensible and Mrs Jones was very happy with our behaviour. During the afternoon we went to a clay workshop to learn about sculpting. We started by drawing different pots and artefacts that we would like to make. We then went back to the workshop and made some clay sculptures. It was really dirty but really fun. We have some very creative puffins in Year 1. After our long day we then got back on the bus and came back to school. Some of us had a little sleep because we were so tired!
