Road safety

Road safety training.
We had a great afternoon on Thursday learning about road safety in year 1.  We learnt the 4 important rules:
1-stop. 2- look. 3-listen. 4-think.
Then we put this into practise when we crossed roads around our school.  Back in the classroom we talked about safe places to cross and looked at different types of crossing. At the end of the day we all got a certificate to say we a experts at crossing the road!

Living things and their habitats

On Monday, we dodged the showers and managed to do some fieldwork in the school grounds.  Our Science topic is ‘Living things and their habitats’ so we investigated what living things we could find.  We found lots of plants, trees and minibeasts.  We used good observational skills to locate the living things and we used an identification sheet to help us to name what we found.  We all had fun!

Year 1 had a fantastic day at the Visitor Runway Park at Manchester Airport on Monday. We learnt all about the different jobs that people do at the airport and took the controls on the flight deck to take off and land an aeroplane on imaginary journeys.

We saw the fastest aeroplane in the world, Concorde, but just missed seeing the biggest aeroplane in the world as it landed 15 minutes early!

Chinese lessons

We really enjoyed visiting North Chadderton School for Chinese lessons.  We learnt how to say ‘Hello, My name is …. and Goodbye’ Chloe, the teacher, then told us what our names are in Chinese and she then wrote it using calligraphy.  We can’t wait for next week.

A new baby!

We have been learning about the chronology of the royal family and have been excited to hear the news about the new royal baby. We made our own maps to send to the Queen so she can find her way to meet her new great grandson.
