We have had a super exciting science week in year 1! The children had a walk around the school where they found and identified different everyday materials.

This week, year 1 have been learning about the Incredibles and how WE can be incredible in our learning. We have written letters to our favourite superheroes, made creative pictures using different materials based around superheroes and made superhero accessories out of playdough!

Get out of my Swamp!

This week the children in year 1 had a visit from Shrek and some magical fairytale creatures! Although we didn’t get to see the creatures, they left us some clues to work out who had been to visit and some activities to take part in!

Safeguarding Awareness Week

This week in Barnsley it has been Safeguarding Awareness Week #SAW. The children in year 1 have done lots of thinking about all the things we do for ourselves and each other that help to safeguard. We have thought about the way we behave, the way we treat each other and the actions we take every day that keep us safe. Together the class made a ‘Safety Chain’ and we were amazed at just how huge this was! Each child added their own link, writing one thing that they can do that helps to keep them safe and happy. When these were joined together we could see just how much we do as a class to protect ourselves and each other. What a fantastic team!

The children in year one had a very exciting morning on Wednesday. They got to spend their first transition morning in their year 2 classroom as a practise for September. The children learned what it means to be a year two 'lionheart' and met the year two mascot Leanord the Lion. The children spent time putting together their new reward system of 'Pride Points' and can not wait to see this in place when they return to school as year twos after the Summer holiday. The children are really looking forward to another transition visit to their new classroom next week!
