We had lots of fun when we were visited by the Better Living team and really enjoyed learning about the best way to start our day.We also loved playing lots of different games with the parachute!
We really enjoyed taking part in the Todmorden mini Olympics and doing lots of different physical activities. We tried so hard and supported all of our friends!
This half term our topic has been Todmorden and our local area. We have used a variety of resources to help us explore the local area. We have really enjoyed all of our map work, including learning how to use a compass!
Listen to our festive songs recorded in our music lessons with Mr Simpson
We have been very excited to have some snow this December. We have spent lots of time playing out in the snow and exploring all of the different ways we can play in it.
We loved getting spotty for Children in Need! We learnt about how the charity helps people less fortunate than us and how our charity work can help.
We had a special visitor in to our class to teach us all about car safety. Teddy taught us why we should always wear our seat belt in the car and how a seat belt keeps us safe. We hope you don't take a tumble again Teddy!
We have been busy making puppets as part of our Toys topic. We designed them, cut our felt and even had a go at sewing them. We finished off by gluing on buttons, eyes and felt to make our puppets look like our original design. To finish we evaluated the puppets and the process.
We enjoyed our trip to Bradford Industrial Museum to take part in a Toys of the past workshop to help us develop our toy detective skills and find out more about what toys people used to play with. We learnt lots of new facts and skills and loved playing with lots of toys, old and new!
We have all settled really well into Year One and are enjoying to still learn through provision alongside more formal teaching. Many of us have enjoyed completing our weekly challenges passports, which encourage us to explore new areas of provision we might not normally.
We have really enjoyed playing our weather station role play area, giving each other weather reports and dressing up for the different weather we might encounter.
Our topic focus this term is Toys through time, where we will be exploring how toys have changed for children over time. We have enjoyed exploring a wide variety of toys and using our toy detective skills to determine whether they are an older toy or newer toy.
