Welcome to Class 1's page. We hope you enjoy looking at all the exciting things we learn in Class 1 throughout the year!
Class 1 have settled in well. They have enjoyed being in school learning new routines and making new friends. Here are some photos of the children engaged in a variety of activities throughout Autumn Term 1.
During the first week of school, Reception children went on a tour around the school grounds. They enjoyed being in the library and meeting Sooty, Class 2's rabbit the best!
Class 1 also spent their first week exploring a vegetable patch where they found carrots, onions and slimy snails!
Class 1 continued exploring the great outdoors. They gathered herbs such as lavender, rosemary and mint to use in their delightful, fragrant dishes.
Autumn Term 2 began with a trip to College Lake. The children started off the day with a sensory walk.
Next, the children learnt about the different aspects of nature that help us to stay alive. The children dressed up as bears and went off to find shelter, water, air and food.
A woodcutter came along and she tried to chop down the last tree in the forest! Class 1 very quickly gathered around the tree to protect it. Their quick thinking saved the tree!
Class 1 had a lot of fun exploring Tring's Museum.
Their day started with an exciting Polar expedition where Class 1 were able to share and learn new information about the Polar regions.
The children were also able to explore special artifacts such as a walrus skull, a penguin's flipper and a whale's rib cage bone !!
Next, the children went on a hunt around the Museum to look for animals that live in cold or hot places. The children were fantastic at naming animals and they were full of fantastic questions.
Class 1 had a fantastic day at Tring Museum!
Class 1 have been patiently awaiting the arrival of the chicks and ducks.
Last week, the children were able to witness 4 chicks hatch within the space of 2 days. The ducklings decided to hatch slightly earlier than planned and they made their appearance during the Easter holidays.
The children were amazed by this beautiful event. They could not believe the fact that a chick/duckling fits inside such a small egg!
One week later, the children have been thinking of names for the 3 ducklings and 4 chicks. They have been busy writing down their suggestions and posting them in a box. Very soon, we will be holding a class vote to decide on their final names.
We will keep you posted....
