BIG 6 IN MAY!

Help your Y1 child learn about capacity!

As we are doing a measuring topic in Maths, we need to explore how much containers hold. You can help at home by finding any opportunities to fill and empty different containers.

Well done Olivia, an Olympic star in the making...

WHAT A GREAT TRIP BACK IN TIME

AT CROXTETH HALL

We had a BRILLIANT day at Croxteth Hall, learning about the past and about how one very rich local family lived in the past in a beautiful home near to school!

Living History!

History came alive for a whole morning in Year One when we were transported back to the Victorian times. We spent the morning as Victorian children, with the girls dressed up in pinafores and mop caps and the boys dressed up in waistcoats, neck ties and flat caps! What a fun, interesting and hands on morning we had, learning about and playing with Victorian toys and learning how to play the sort of games that Victorian children would have played. THANKS PARENTS WHO CAME IN FOR THE MORNING TOO!

"La Fheile Padraig Sona Dhuit!"

As part of our geography learning, Barnaby Bear has just arrived from Dublin! We made cards, listened and danced to Irish music, made leprechaun biscuits, made lucky shamrocks and learnt all about the history of St. Patrick, who turned out to be Welsh!

We LOVE Science!

So you think you know all about animals?

Do you know the difference between a carnivore and a herbivore? Can you say what an omnivore would eat? Do you know if a frog is a reptile or an amphibian? Check out these pictures of Y1 working in science lessons to find out more...

Windmill Farm

What a fabulous day...and sunshine too!

Here's what Ryan wrote:

We went to Windmill farm on a coach. First I went on a big scary slide. Next we went to see some funny animals and I fed them with my hand. Then we washed our hands for our lunch. After that we went on a little train and we stopped to play at an outside play area. We played again. Finally we went home. 

Getting fit with Mr Millington!

Anyone for tennis?
