 To end the term we were lucky enough to have the story of 'Thumbelina' told by the Norwich Puppet Theatre. As well as being a special treat, it introduced us to a traditional way of telling stories that not all of us have experienced. 'Badger' was especially lucky to meet one of the characters! 
A big THANKYOU to the PFA who provided the funding.

 Jo from the Dogs Trust came to read us a story and talk about how to treat dogs respectfully so that we keep safe when interacting with them. We learned how to do the 'X factor' when approached by a dog that makes us nervous (even if it is just meaning to be friendly) and how to ensure we can stroke dogs safely by asking the owners first.

For Easter we made chocolate Easter nests and baskets so that we could carry them home. We thought carefully about the ingredients we would need and learned how to melt the chocolate 
so that we could stir the chocolate and cornflakes together.

 An Easter Trail was a great way to see how well we knew our way around the school grounds. 
'Badger' was up to his tricks again and he hid lots of clues. At the end, after much searching 
(even 'Badger' went missing) we counted all the eggs and shared them fairly between everyone.


Red Nose Day & Keeping Fit and Healthy

 On Red Nose Day we donated money to come to school dressed as superheroes. 
We were still keen to do the 1 kilometre run and wondered how much faster this made us?


  There was still time to do some hanging around though ...

 A BIG THANKYOU to all the helpers at St Michael's Church who organized all the activities to help us learn about Christian beliefs around Easter time. Thanks also to offers from parents to come with us.



Music and Art

  Working in small groups, we explored mark-making as we listened to the music 'Carnival of the Animals' by the composer St Saens. We changed the types of mark according to how the different pieces of music changed mood and thought carefully about how to use the space.


PE - Keeping Fit and Healthy

 Doing the 1km Run is helping to keep us fit and healthy. 
Many of us love it and choose to do more than the required 4 laps of the playing field!

 We have been learning how to find a quarter of a number of objects by sharing them out equally.


Geography/Literacy/Music - Class Assembly

 Our first Year One Class Assembly gave us the opportunity to show what we have learnt about Antarctica - in particular, about penguins. It's a great way of building our confidence in speaking, 
acting and singing. We hope you enjoyed it as much as we did! 

Here are the fish that the mummy penguins designed to feed their young chicks 
- you probably couldn't see the detail from the back of the hall!
