Last week the children were putting the final touches to their lanterns. Thank you very much to all the parent helpers who came in!
We have now added the colour, put in the lights and put the lanterns onto sticks.
The lantern parade has been cancelled due to the bad weather at the weekend but has been rescheduled for January 19th 2019. We will give out the lanterns on the Friday before then for you to bring to the parade.
This term we have been learning all about different materials. This week we had some ice in the Tuff Tray outside. The children loved touching the ice and their discussions and vocabulary were excellent. They decided the ice was 'transparent' rather than 'opaque'. Some children said that the ice was more 'translucent'!
We discussed how ice melts when it gets warm. The children found it fascinating how the ice changed into water throughout the day.
Our topic at the beginning of this term was 'Hubble Bubble'. To get the children engaged in the topic Year 1 had a 'Forest School Day' with Reception class.
Unfortunately, it was an incredibly rainy and windy day so most of our activities had to be done inside! We did manage to get outside for a bit to light the fire and gather up materials for our crafts.
As you can see from the photos the children still had an amazing day and loved having hot chocolate to finish the day off.
We made a witch wand out of natural materials and wire. We also made clay animal masks based on the characters in our book for the term 'Room on a Broom'.
