Our two scarecrows have been rehearsing with the class for our Harvest festival.
We’re off on a journey
Inspired by ‘The Train Ride’ by June Crebbin, we have been painting pictures of things that we might see out of the train window.
We have been working hard to draw our own roads on the playground. We even made some bus stops and bus tickets to give to the driver before we get on.
Naughty Bus went for a drive
We have been reading ‘Naughty Bus’ by Jan and Jerry Oke. Our own Naughty Bus was taken for a drive around the school and through lots of different materials. He got a bit stuck in the hair gel!
Autumn is here
The signs of Autumn are all around us in our lovely school grounds.
The Year 1 children have really enjoyed helping their new friends in Reception settle in.
We started the new school year with a few furry friends coming to visit.
As we have been learning about transport, one of our pupils brought in his Grandad’s hat and bag from when he was a real bus driver in the 1980s. We loved looking at all of his badges and the different tools he had in his bag, especially the one he used to punch holes in people’s tickets.
The children in Tinley class have been inspired by our Native American topic to make their own head dresses and costumes. Can you can guess which famous Native American some of the children are dressed as?
We have been learning about Andy Goldsworthy as part of our Footsteps Through the Forest topic. He is an artist that creates patterns and sculptures in nature. We had a go at making our own natural art. We even used watering cans as pretend rain.
Stay and Play 25th March 15
Tinley Class had a wonderful time at their Stay and Play afternoon. Parents and Grandparents joined us for the afternoon to make our very own Dinosaur Lands. We thought very carefully about what geographical features we might have seen when the Dinosaurs ruled the world. Thank you to all who came. We hope to have you visit again soon.
Maidstone Museum 10th March 15
We visited Maistone Museum and learnt about dinosaurs!
World Book Day 5th March 15
In Tinley Class we thought about what our characters were like and how they would pose in a photo. Alice even managed to fall down a rabbit hole!!
