Year 1 Project - Moon Zoom
CRASH! What’s that in the playground? Let’s go outside and take a look. Stand back everyone – it looks like a UFO has crash landed. Find out who might have landed by exploring the craft and investigating scattered scientific specimens. Create a ‘Welcome to Earth’ box for an alien explorer. What can you put in it to help explain what life is like on our planet? Would you like to be an astronaut? You’ll need a pretty sturdy spacecraft if you do. Start off small by making an air-propelled rocket. How far can you make it travel? Find out the names of the planets. There’s Mercury, Neptune, Mars and – do you know any others? I’ve forgotten the rest. Then, an alien is found. Can you help get him home? It’s got the experts in a right kerfuffle. Professor Pong doesn’t know what to do. Are you ready for take off Year 1? Hold tight. 5, 4, 3, 2, 1… LIFT OFF!

Race for Life September 2020
We had a great time running and raising money for CRUK during our P.E lessons last week. We had to run around the playground lots and lots of times to complete the 5k challenge.
Miss Crayford and Mrs Carter were very proud of our enthusiasm and effort!
In English this week, we read 'My Grandma is Wonderful' by Nick Butterworth. We listened to the story carefully, retold the story using a text map AND had a go at retelling the story in sentences. Above are some examples of our super work!
Miss Crayford thinks our handwriting is AMAZING!
