Anti-bullying Week 

Today we welcomed our parents in to share in our Anti-bullying Week. The children sat with their parents and family members and designed a sock for Odd Socks day, then filled out a Megaphone with who they would tell if they were being bullied. The children (and parents) were very proud of their designs! 

Introduction to Curious Quests!

The children have joined a Curious Quest. This is an extension of the Drawing Club they started in Reception. Today we opened our Magic Mustard Tin and discovered Professor Klunk has sent us messages. 

We started our quest by thinking about what we thought Professor Klunk looked like. He is a mystery character. 

The children drew pictures of who they thought Professor Klunk was, then using adjectives in their writing, they wrote a description of the Professor. Here are some. 

Year One go to the library

Today was our first trip to the local library. We met the librarian and learnt which books were where so we could find them on our own. When we had looked at some of the many books in the different sections, the children with library cards chose a book to take home and share with their families. We even checked them out on our own!
