The Dance of the Dragon - January 2019
We have had lots of fun finding out about Chinese New Year. We have had a visit from a friendly dragon bringing good luck and wisdom. We watched a dragon dance and then had a go ourselves, we made the dragon wiggle and roar.
The Chinese New Year of the Boar will be on 5th February 2019. The Chinese zodiac follows a twelve year cycle, each of the years being named after an animal. We have read the legend about how the animals were chosen, and have found out which animals we are.

Christmas Show - December 2018
The Class 1 children worked really hard learning the songs and actions for their performances of A King is Born. They all did a great job and put on a fantastic show. Well done everybody!
Minibeast Hunting! - December 2018
We have been searching for minibeasts. Even though the weather was cold we managed to find lots of little creatures.
We thought carefully about the habitats different insects liked best. We found lots of worms, slugs and snails in cold, damp, dark places under pots and in the vegetable garden. Woodlice and spiders were found in piles of dead leaves where it was cool and dark. We enjoyed carefully catching them and then looking closely at them using magnifying glasses.
We decided to make a habitat for a colony of woodlice. We worked in groups to create a habitat thinking about shelter, water and food. We kept them as classroom pets and investigated their favourite spots to hide. Later that week they were released back to the wild, having been given names and personalities by Class 1!
