In RE we have been learning about how Jewish people celebrate Hanukkah. We all tried potato cakes and played dreidel.
This week in school we did design technology linked to our history learning about the Wright brothers first aircraft flight in 1903. We all made our own moving picture using a slider mechanism. If was a bit tricky in places but everyone got a final picture they were proud of!
They were all so fabulous we couldn’t decide whose should go on the website! Ask us about them
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!
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.
