What a great start!!!!22 September 2020 Written by Rhiannon Wilkinson
We have done so much learning already!
We have had our first Art lesson and learnt about the artist Arcimboldo. We learnt that he was from Italy and enjoyed using fruit in his paintings. We created our own artwork inspired by his work.
We have also started learning our class text 'Avocado' baby. We tasted avocado. Some of us thought it tasted delicious. Some of us thought it was disgusting!
We have aslo enjoyed exploring the properties of fruit during our Independent Learning time. We made predictions about whether fruit will float or sink and then tested these. We recorded what we found out on a chart. Some chidlren tried to look for theories. Some of us thought that small fruit would float and big fruit would sink. Do you think we can proove this or not?
In our large construction area we have been engineers. We have read manuals, made plans and built vehicles.
We opened a Year 1 cafe follwoing our role play interests. It was very exciting to welcome some special guests. We read recipe books, worked in teams, planned and wrote menus, made lists and signs and enjoyed communicating clearly in different roles. Some of us even added up the bill and gave change!

Elmer Class Display10 September 2020 Written by Rhiannon Wilkinson
Elmer class have enjoyed their first two weeks of KS1!
We have been learning about the importance of being welcoming and how we welcome each other. We have learnt what a community is and what a community does to look after each other. We have also been learning about diversity and why it is an important strength to have.
We thought we would create ourselves for our display. Each child made their clothes differently to celebrate diversity. We also decided that the people on the display should hold hands so that they are a welcoming community.
