Year 1 are designing and making their own hand puppets. So far we have been practising our sewing skills and trying out the different techniques that we can use to join our pieces of fabric together. Our finger puppets were a great success so we are sure that the hand puppets will be fabulous!
In history we are learning about significant people. We have studied Florence Nightingale- she even came to our class to see us and tell us about her life. We learnt what hospitals were like in the Victorian times and how Florence improved them during her visit to Scutari when she helped the injured soldiers in the Crimean war.
Before half term we wrote an email to Ann Daniels- the first woman to reach both the north and South Pole. We worked together to ask her some questions about her expeditions. This week she wrote back to us. We were so excited to read her reply.
In history this week we have learnt about Caroline Mikklesen. She was the first woman to reach the South Pole in 1935.
Isn’t nature wonderful? The children have been so excited and some actually managed to see one of the chicks hatch out of an egg. We now have three chicks but…. how many will we have in the morning?
