Inspire Workshop – Maths


Today we enjoyed our Inspire Workshop for Mathematics. We shared what we are learning with our grown-ups and showed them the resources we have been using in school to support us in Maths Mastery. We made a board game to play at home and had a great time sharing our learning with our visitors.

During November we had a special Remembrance Assembly where people from the Armed Forces came into school and spoke to us about their jobs and how it is 100 years since the end of World War One. Our school presented them with a basket of goodies for all of those who are in the Armed Forces and are at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital.

Inspire Workshop during the Autumn Term based on Phonics. We welcomed the parents in and informed them about the Letters and Sounds scheme that we follow in school. We also spoke about the Phonics Screening test and what they can do to help their children with their phonics.

During our RE lesson we looked at the story of the Good Samaritan and then worked in a group to role play the story. We know that we should treat everyone equally and fairy regardless of our differences.

Year 1 took part in a Dinosaur workshop where they were able to look at fossils and then had an assembly where a T-Rex came into the Hall. They loved their afternoon and were both shocked and amazed to see the dinosaur in school.

We loved our time in the Hall during our Christmas parties. We danced our socks off to some of our favourite songs!

1W Class Christmas Party

We each brought in something to share during our party. We enjoyed sitting together as a class to eat our snacks and share our excitement for Christmas.
