We have been exploring balances in gymnastics this half term. We have learnt lots of new moves and have been enjoying experimenting with different balances with our partners. Can you guess the name of the balances we are showing?

We enjoyed a festive forest schools session with hot chocolate and marshmallows!

What a wonderful Monday we had in Owls and Bumble Bee's this week. Thank you all for coming to watch our Christmas assembly and joining us for our craft morning. The children loved completing the activities with you and we hope you enjoyed looking through all of their wonderful learning from this term.

We are now feeling very Christmassy and are looking forward to spending time with our families.
We hope you all have a fabulous Christmas and New Year!

In PSHE this week we thought about things we were interested in. We told our friends our hobbies and favourite things to do and then we thought about what we would like for Christmas. We then painted, and drew pictures of what we would like and also made the objects out of play-doh and lego! 


Christmas Experience

We had a great trip to the church today. We learnt all about the Christmas story of Mary and Joseph's journey to Bethlehem and the birth of baby Jesus. We thought carefully about the meaning of Christmas and discussed how we celebrate Christmas with our families.


Spaceship DT

We had a great lesson with Mrs Wilkinson last week creating our own spaceships and UFO's using a variety of materials. We all tried to use different techniques such as tearing, folding and curling paper to make our spacey design. We worked together as a team brilliantly sharing resources and discussing ideas. 


Hooray for Pudsey!

The children made a great effort, coming to school wearing spots and making their £1 donation for an excellence cause! 
We had a great day with Bumble Bees and Owls teaming up to spend the day together doing lots of activities. From writing books on fundraising ideas to painting Pudsey pictures we were super engrossed in all that we did!

Learn Its

Wow! Week by week we have been trying so hard to beat our Learn Its score. We know to start looking for our first sum when the music is on and try our best to answer all the addition sums in the 90 seconds. Here's some pictures of us in action!


Lots of us have been practicing these sums at home and we have been sharing our homework with our friends.

Our trip to the forest

We had a great trip to Rendlesham forest, for some of us it was our first time on a double decker bus so we were very excited. When  we got to the forest we followed the trail and found aliens on the way that spelled out a word...Gorseland Year 1- they knew we were coming! We found a huge UFO! We had a special snack in the play area, had a quick play then headed back to school for a picnic altogether.
