In celebration of the film festival, Year 1 were given the opportunity to visit the cinema! We were fortunate enough to watch Despicable Me 3, which was great fun!
Mrs Kemball came into our class to help us learn and remember the Our Father. She brought with her a box of objects to help us remember the order of the prayer. We enjoyed making up actions for the different parts of the prayer.
Learning about the Rosary.
We were invited to the Chapel to learn about the Rosary. Mrs Kemball discussed the various prayers said with each of the beads of the Rosary and its relevance in daily life. The children participated with the prayers and learned new prayers to use in class and during Mass.
On Monday 16th October we discussed different habitats where animals live outside. We then went outside and used natural resources that we found to make homes for animals we may find in the school grounds. Due to the hurricane, we found our leaves and twigs kept flying away, so we pulled all forces together in the class and made one giant nest! We had some children protecting the nest from the wind, whilst other children carried on collecting twigs and leaves. We even found a snail who swiftly moved into our nest! We were very excited that our nest was already being used!
Introducing adjectives using our senses
On Wednesday 11th January we were given a variety of food. We then had to use our senses to think of a variety of adjectives to describe the different food. Our favourite part was when we were allowed to taste the food!
Brighten Up Day for CAFOD
On Friday we took part in Brighten Up Day for CAFOD. Earlier in the week, we attended an assembly taken by a representative from CAFOD explaining where the money raised would go to. It was lovely to see them participate in such bright colours for such an important cause. The children and the staff looked fantastic.
Blessed Sacrament Festival
On Wednesday the children were asked to bring in flowers. This was for the Blessed Sacrament Festival on Thursday. We were invited to the Chapel on Thursday with Mrs Kemball where we reflected on Jesus and His love for us.
We enjoyed a fun filled day to Stockley Farm in September. Whilst there we experienced encountering different farm animals as well as taking part in a nature walk. We were also luck enough to experience a calf being born. The staff were very informative and gave the children an opportunity to name the calf. We decided to name it Francis after St Francis who is the patron saint of animals.
