The fire service visited Year 1 on Tuesday for our Great Fire of London Topic. We all had a go at going inside the fire engine and at squirting the fire hose. We then listened to the noisy sirens – it was loud and great fun !!!
Year 1 and Year 2 recently visited the Gloucester Folk Museum.
The children had the opportunity to dress, you can see from some of the photographs they had loads of fun!
All children had the opportunity to play with Victorian toys and games and look around the museum. They also met a 'real' Victorian teacher who took them into a Victorian classroom. They sat at their own desks and had the opportunity to use slate and a slate pencil for their writing as well as an ink pen!
The Yearr 1 displays are in our hall, promoting British values and inclusion. For the 'you fit right in' display we each created our own jigsaw piece showing how each of us are different but together we make a class.
In our 'Being British' display we discussed what being British means and some of the values such as being respectful to others and respecting the law. We then created our own flags to represent ourselves.
In April Year 1 had a visitor from a company called 'Now Press Play' who gave my class an interactive experience using headphones.
They learnt about the Great Fire of London
Year 1 went to Prinknash Deer and Bird Park (www.thebirdpark.com) with year 2 for our science topic of animals.
We made badges as well as looking around the park at the different species of birds and deer. We also each got to feed the youngest deer Rosie.
The photographs below show what Year 1 have done in their first topic lesson about Neil Armstrong. The children created their own timeline of his life both before and after he went to the moon.
