Academic Year 2021/2022

Spirituality 

The concept of 'spirituality' is very complex, it can mean different things to different people. Upon discussing this with Foxcubs, we talked about the ways in which we might experience the feeling of 'spirituality' and the kinds of activities we might participate in to encourage us to feel 'spiritual'. A popular activity that was discussed was meditative experiences such as yoga, or being somewhere that you makes you feel at peace. We then drew pictures and discussed the places that made us feel peaceful and happy.

Academic Year 2020/2021

Class 1 spent some time discussing the school’s core values ‘Joy, Love and Resilience’ today. We discussed what they meant and then, choosing to focus on the first value, we discussed the things that make us feel ‘joyful’.

This was a lovely reminder of all the things that we love to do.

Week beginning 23rd November

Maths star of the week: Joseph has been working hard in maths this week and had a fantastic moment on Friday when he suddenly realised that all of his hard work had paid off- keep it up Joseph!

Star of the week: Immy always has a positive attitude and approaches every challenge with a smile. 

Writing star of the week: Noah has really enjoyed learning about meerkats and has worked hard to begin a fact file on them.

An exciting start to the week in Class 1!

On Monday morning we took delivery of a parcel addressed to Class 1 – we were so excited to find out what was inside!

We opened up the package carefully, as it said ‘Fragile!’ on the outside. Curiously, it also had air holes poked into it!

As we opened up the package, we could see a little face poking out – a meerkat! We also found a letter addressed to Class 1 and a book.

We read the letter and discovered that Sunny, a meerkat, had been on an adventure to find a new home, but he couldn’t find anywhere he liked more than his own home in the Kalahari Desert!

We read his story and found out all about his adventures.

The children were so excited to have a visitor to the class, they decided to make him a home to make him feel more welcome.

Spring Term 2020

As it was St David’s Day on Sunday, the children have been learning all about Wales and how the day is celebrated! The children all took part in a session learning greetings in Welsh and the numbers to 10 (of course with actions!). In the afternoon, the children made their own leek and potato soup, made their own daffodils and learned all about St David and the work he did in Wales!

Autumn Term 1 – 2019-2020

2018 – 2019 School Year

Go Ape! Thursday 18th July 2019

The EYFS and KS1 children did us proud at Go Ape on Thursday 18th July – they were so brave, faced their fears and had fun! Huge thank you to all of the parent helpers!

Forest Schools – fires!

 

The children in class 1 had their first experience of making fires in their Forest Schools session! Mrs Warner taught the children how to sit safely around the fire pit, we discussed what to do in case of a fire emergency and the children showed perseverance in trying to light the “fairy blanket” using the fire steels.

Bee-Bots

Thank you to the children in Class 3 who made some bee-bot maps, algorithms and introductory videos for Class 1! We have been enjoying following the algorithm to direct the Bee-Bots around the maps. During play the Class 1 children have been making their own maps and spending lots of time exploring the Bee-Bots. The Year 1 children even made their own videos to share with Class 3!

Such hard work from both classes – well done!

Snow!

Who loves snow!? Class 1 definitely love the snow and had a fabulous time exploring the paddock on 1st February!

We went to visit our forest school area to check on the trees, they were all asleep and waiting for spring.

The children in Class 1 have been working really hard on their Nativity Production!

They performed it three times; once for our local Naseby residents, once for the other children and staff at school and once for their parents and families. Some of the children have even been enjoying playing in our role-play corner with baby Jesus in the manger.

Mrs Warner and Mrs Chamberlain are so proud of all the children who did a wonderful job! Well done!

 

 Friday 23rd November 2018

Today the children in class 1 completed lots of maths activities linked with the story Handa’s Surprise. Working together in groups, the children were asked to share a tangerine. They worked out how many segments each child in their group could have. All tangerines have a different amount of segments! Only one group could share their tangerine equally.

Year 1 children were estimating how many mini fruits in the cup. Reception children matched the numeral to the amount of play fruit in the bowl. All of the children created a pasta necklace using a repeating pattern. Everyone tasted the fruit from the story and recorded their favourite in a chart.

 

 

The children were invited to explore and discover all of the activities around the classroom.

They looked at objects that were magnetic and non-magnetic, chemical reactions, the force of gravity, static electricity and change of state!
