Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall! We have been doing Easter arts and crafts and made Humpty Dumpty using egg shells and lots of PVA glue. Of course, we had to build walls for Humpty to sit on and we changed the rhyming words to make up new rhymes for Humpty Dumpty......lots of phonics, art and laughter especially when the walls fell down!!!
Wonderful Water Stories Year 1 pupils have been learning all about the topic of water. We have found out what makes objects float or sink, how water gets into our houses and school, how people got water in the past and also the uses of water ....water is for fun, transport, plants and animals, cooking, drinking and lots more! We experimented with the technique of 'wax resist' using crayons and paint to make umbrellas and boots and wrote stories about being in the bath. A huge wall display was created outside our classroom.
Working Together in P.E. We have been working together in P.E. during the month of March with a parachute. Lots of fun activities as you can see from the photos!!
Ball skills in P.E. During February we have been concentrating on improving our ball skills. We have been bouncing and catching, throwing and catching individually and also with a friend. Great fun in the hall!

Festive Friday 2! On our second Festive Friday, we had a craft day. We made Christmas trees with lots and lots of glitter and decorated Christmas reindeer baubles. We listened to Christmas songs and rhymes and entered into the spirit of Christmas.
Festive Friday 1! On the 3rd December, we had our first Festive Friday. Instead of having our annual Christmas Craft Fair, we plan to have 3 Festive Fridays to help with our fundraising efforts. Mrs Milligan worked hard to set up lots of games in the hall. Year 1 had a fun morning playing lots of games from Chinese chopsticks, football penalties, hook a duck and building towers....everyone got prize sweets for taking part. Have a look at all our photos. Next time, we have craft activities to do ...
Hallowe'en Hampers! Such excitement in the Year 1 classroom about trying to win a hamper. It must have had something to do with all the sweets and treats in each one. We made a total of 6 Hallowe'en hampers but every pupil went home with some sweets from Mrs Price. Our special winners were Eloise, Sofia, Jacob, Jaxon, Ski and Billy.
Fun with the Number 4! Year 1 pupils have been learning all about the number 4. Our number 4 character is called Freddie Four and he likes going on lots of adventures! The boys and girls rolled out lots of number 4's with their dough and strengthened their hand muscles at the same time!
Sponsored Walk The weather was lovely for our annual sponsored walk on Friday 1st October. There was plenty of chat and plenty of singing all round the Lagan walk. Pamela and Mrs Price were exhausted, but some of the boys and girls with their high energy levels could have walked all morning! Everyone should sleep well tonight!
