Victorian School Day
Children in Year 1 were visited by the Victorian teacher Mr Murphy. He had transformed one of our classrooms into a Victorian classroom where he taught us about Victorian punishments, how to use an ink pen, how to recite our 2 and 5 times tables and lots more! We created our own scrapbook page, a union jack flag and studied some Victorian artefacts. Later, Mr Murphy set up lots of Victorian toys for us to try. We finished the day by singing the national anthem whilst we waved our union jacks. We had a fantastic day and now have a better understanding of what life might have been like for a Victorian child.
Year 1's trip to the farm
To launch our new Science project ‘Animal Parts’ the children in Year 1 went on a trip to Smithills Farm. They had an exciting day where they fed animals, went on a tractor ride, watched cows being milked, stroked baby animals and went on a donkey ride.
Our famous figure this half term is the musician Lady Gaga. We learnt about her life, listened to her music and created some super art work!
