Macclesfield Silk Museum

Class 1M and 1W went on a trip to Macclesfield Silk Museum to fit in with the History topic: Victorian Britain. We got to make rag rugs and we had a school lesson from a strict Victorian teacher.
We also found out what life was like for rich and poor children in different Victorian homes. Mrs Brown showed us her lovely cottage, with a nice warm fire and lots of old artefacts from around the home. We were able to dress up as Victorian children and really get into role, which we enjoyed very much. It was a great day!

Year 1 Superhero Day

At the start of the summer term, we had a superhero day to start our Literacy topic on superheroes. We came to school as our favourite superhero or our own creation. We thought about what special powers and gadgets we might have to defeat evil villains! Lots of fun was had by everyone. 

Year 1 Troll Day

On Friday 29th September, we came to school in our best Troll costumes for our Year 1 Troll day. Even our teachers dressed up! We looked very scary what do you think? 

We drew troll pictures, made disgusting troll soup with lots of yucky ingredients, built troll homes and even danced to some troll themed music. We are going to use our pictures from troll day to help us with our writing in Literacy. A fantastic day was had by everyone! 

Welcome to Year 1 - September 2017

This week we have been settling into our new year 1 classrooms. We have played lots of circle games to get to know each other and to develop our speaking and listening skills. All of us have enjoyed the games, particularly passing a handshake or a smile around the circle.  We are looking forward to the year ahead and all of the exciting learning we will be doing.
