This half term, Class One have been learning all about British Woodlands.

On Thursday 7th July 2016, we were lucky enough to have a tree surgeon visit our class. He explained why he fells tress and how he does this, then showed us the different types of protective clothing he has to wear. Some of the children even tried on his helmet and ear defenders! After that, we all learned how to tie a special knot, one that Mr Furniss uses regularly in his job.

It is a very exciting but dangerous job! Thank you very much for coming to see us!

Class 1 and Class 2 took part in a Children’s Festival at Magna last week.

We had a great day learning to play the drums, dancing and making masks. We then came together at the end of the day with other schools to perform in a carnival. It was really fun!



Let’s all go on a dinosaur hunt!

Class One were excited to hear that there had been a possible sighting of a dinosaur in Kimberworth! We decided to go on a dinosaur hunt where we used magnifying glasses to identify clues! On our hunt we discovered four incredible dinosaur eggs, a huge dinosaur footprint and even a little gap under the fence where we believe a baby dinosaur had escaped!

Keep your eyes peeled in and around school….there may be more clues to help Class One piece their puzzle together!

Last week, Class One created their very own dinosaurs using plasticine ready for our trip to CLC! Once at CLC, we spent the morning filming our story using stop frame animation, where we had to be very patient and only move the models a little bit at a time! After dinner, we edited our films by adding a title, a sound track and inserting freeze frame pictures of dinosaurs. What a brilliant day!

We hope you enjoy The Three Little Dinosaurs.


Moon Zoom! – Year One

As part of our topic, Moon Zoom, Class One have been busy designing and creating their own moon buggies, just like The Lunar Rover!

Children worked in pairs, using different materials to build their buggy, then decorated them! Finally they fixed axels to the bottom, and four wheels to enable the buggies to move!

Please come and see them on display in Class One!

Class One – Our Carnival Day

Screen Shot 2015-10-22 at 09.55.09On Friday 16th October 2015, Class One took part in a Samba Drumming Workshop as part of our topic ‘Carnival Time’. We had a fantastic morning learning all about the different drums and instruments that are used in the Rio de Janeiro Carnival. At the end of the day, we gave a performance of our new drumming and dancing skills to our parents. Wow! What a brilliant day!
