Squirrel Class (Year 1)

IMG 0250

It's been an exciting week for the squirrel class as everything has been Harry Potter themed! The children have become excellent wizards; they've made their own edible wands, visited some owls, received their Hogwarts acceptance letter and learned how to play Quidditch. One of their most exciting events though, was when they attended a beautiful banquet organised by TOPS. The children had a fantastic afternoon trying lots of yummy foods and joining in with activities such as find the egg, hoopla and pin the glasses on Harry Potter! I would just like to say a big thank you for all the effort that was put in. It truly was a brilliant afternoon!

As we continue our themed week, the children will play Quidditch against the Hedgehog class, mix different ingredients together to concoct a magical potion and make their own secret map to follow and find some hidden treasure inside the school grounds! I can't wait to see how creative they are.

Wishing you all a good rest of the week.

We have had a lovely term in the Squirrel Class. We've been focusing on the exciting changes that are about to happen outside as we move from Winter to Spring. We have been looking at plants and how to look after them and we've been learning all about the changes in the weather. The Squirrels have shown their creativity by designing flowerbeds, writing their own innovated versions of Shark in the Park, used drama workshops to get to know the characters of Jack and the Beanstalk and practiced using expression when reading aloud. It is lovely to see how the children have blossomed since September and how their confidence to learning is growing. I am especially proud of how well the Squirrels have been working as a team this term and know they will continue to do so.

I will see you all after half term!
