    Published 16/11/21, by Andy Mari

    This week the Year 1 classes were invited to North Herts College to learn about plants.

    The childcare students from the college had set up a wonderful session where we were able to plant seeds, learn about the different parts of a plant, handle unusual food items that had been grown in the allotments there, and we even had a story read to us.

    A great time was had by all, and we thank NHC for having us

    Year 1 received a letter last week from Tricky Witch saying that she had turned Mrs Herbaut into a witch. She also had hidden some tricky words in Creature Corner that we had to go down and read.

  • Welcome back Year 1 classes!

    Published 10/09/21, by Andy Mari

    What a fantastic start to year 1 we've had.

    Can you believe that we discovered some paw prints on Monday morning, in our playground. We followed them and they led us all the way down to creature corner. We investigated further and discovered a BEAR in the tree holding our topic book for the week.

    We listened to the story and then built a campfire and roasted some marshmallows. We wrote all about it in our literacy lessons using some amazing adjectives.

  • Pirate treasure hunt

    Published 18/05/21, by Andy Mari

    Year one are learning about prepositional language, writing instructions and using adverbs of time.

    We were left a letter from a pirate saying that there had been some treasure left somewhere in the outdoor area.

    We followed the photo clues hopping over the icy squares, leaping over the crocodile pit, climbing up the rusty rigging and bumping across the rickety pathways that led us to the gleaming booty!

    When we got back to class, we wrote instructions for another pirate to find the treasure!

  • Year 1 Sea Shanty

    Published 01/05/21, by Andy Mari

    This week the year 1 children have been creating actions and dances to pirate poetry and sea shantys.

    The children listened to 'The good ship sails on the ally ally oh' and created an action for each verse. They then wrote about why they chose that action and what it means.

    We also looked at the poem 'Yo Ho Ho' and identified rhyming words and then thought of our own to add and extra section.

    Published 14/04/21, by Andy Mari
    Ahoy there!
    Year 1 had a fantastic introduction to our new Pirate topic this week.
    We enjoyed a whole day of DT where the children designed, created, tested and evaluated Pirate ships with a moving windmill sail.
    The finished products looked fabulous, and we sent them sailing across the seven seas (paddling pool)
    What a brilliant way to start our summer term! We are looking forward to all our pirate based learning that will follow.
