BONJOUR Barnaby...back from his travels in France with a bag full of goodies for us to taste! We have had a lovely day today, Friday 22nd May, with Barnaby Bear. He has begun to tell us all about France, showing us the pictures of him after he had been to the top of the Eiffel what a height! He brought back some euros for us to see and showed us his French scrapbook which we will be reading with him after the half term. Children, don't forget to keep using those French words you have been learning.

We are all very excited that Barnaby the Travelling Teddy has finally arrived in Year 1. He will be telling us all about his time in Dublin, then it's off to France for another holiday before he returns to Melling in May. We have shown Barnaby some of the work we have been doing to learn about maps, globes, atlases, the United Kingdom and the rest of the world. Barnaby was very impressed with all our knowledge, so well done children!


Year One took part in a Get Fit Challenge with Mr Millington on Friday 6th February. Practising a range of skills, we all got warm on a very cold day and had lots of fun along the way!




Check out these football skills in Year One. We are doing a topic in PE on kicking and we think we are getting pretty good at some of the skills. We even had some mini-matches to put our skills into good use.

Year One children have been BUSY, BUSY, BUSY working on 2D and 3D shapes in class and for homework. We have all learnt so much but can you do the Y1 CHALLENGE? Check out the pictures below and see if you can name every shape in them...GOOD LUCK!
