Phonics is the first important step to learning how to spell and read.
 
In Year 1, the children will be given a reading book and a phonics pack to take home.

Dance
 
The children have been learning all about disco dance moves, which emerged during the 1970s. They have been practising their dance to the song Blame it on the Boogie by Jackson 5.
 
The children love learning all about the dance moves in the 1970's, such as side-stepping in between bigger moves, raising their arms overhead, large hip and pelvic movements, and twisting their hands in time to the beat.
 
 
Emmie - "I like those kinds of songs."
Alfie - "I like it because we do loads of moves."
 
 
 
Our 5 Senses
 
Did you know that there are five senses – sight, smell, touch, taste and hearing?  We have found out that our senses help us to understand what's happening around us. Our senses send messages through receptor cells to our brain, using our nervous system to deliver that message.
 
How our  senses work:
Our brain collects information, like smells and sounds, through our five senses: sight, hearing, touch, taste, and smell. Each of our five senses has its own special sensor. Each sensor collects information about our surroundings and sends it to our  brain.
 
Here we are investigating our senses...
WOW! Isabella and James could name all the 5 senses under 20 seconds. Take a look below!

The children have been learning about the different parts of a human body and exploring the 5 senses.

Congratulations to Sklyer who has been elected as Class 1B's new School Councillor! It was a tough decision but we are sure Skyler will be a great representative to our class.
 
Skyler - "I think I would be a really good role model in class and I will be willing to listen to all ideas. I want to make school a fun and happy place."
 
 
Well done to all the other children who were nominated and thank you to their families who helped with their speeches- they were all brilliant!

   Meet Our Digi Dog 

 

Glitter

 

Digi Dog is part of promoting online safety. The children have decided to name our Digi Dog, Glitter. Every Friday, a child will get the chance to take Glitter home with them. They will have a diary to write about how Glitter has helped them keep safe online and about the adventure they have had together.
