We have been busy exploring our colour topic in class. Little Boy Blue was so noisy with his horn!  The 10 Green Bottles kept falling off the wall and Baa Baa Black Sheep was so kind to share all his wool. Have a look at some of the things we have been up too!

We had lots of fun in the hall for PE. We were playing with our colourful hoops. They could twist and roll. Our favourite game was called ‘In, out, shake it all about’!

We enjoyed a story called ‘10 Black Dots’…..we made our own black dot pictures. I hope you like them.

Two of our favourite stories this week were ‘Little Mouse and the Big Red Apple’ and ‘The Crazy Coloured Chameleon’

We have been finding out all about a famous artist called Piet Mondrain. He loved to use straight lines and colours in his artwork. We hope you like our 'Mini Mondrain Masterpieces'!

Look at our colourful rainbows

We love to make colour patterns. Can you see our repeated patterns?

We heard some stories about Elmer the colourful patchwork elephant and have been busy having fun with some colourful activities.

Enjoy a read ….here are our lovely Elmer stories and pictures

Polly parrot is pretty. She is pink and purple. She sits on her perch.

We all had a fun day out on our adventure to Gortin Glen Forest Park. We loved the bus journey and had a long walk looking at all the autumn colours on the trees. We worked out clues about the animals and even saw a Gruffalo! After our lunch we had a visit to the play park. A few of us fell asleep on the way home after our big day out! 

Look what we made in Year 1 for the SCARECROW FESTIVAL ... we hope you like them! 

We had fun with Avril from Debutots. She told us a story and we acted it out. We had to move, dance, listen and act. Jacqueline from the library told us some stores.What a busy day in Year 1!

We had a fun colour party to bring ‘Our Colourful World’ topic to an end. We had lots of colourful jelly and treats! I wonder which colour of jelly was your favourite?

Join us on our adventures in our new topic….’When we go down to the woods’. Have a look at some of our activities about our favourite woodland character the Gruffalo

We went on a walk around school looking at all the shapes and colours of the leaves. 

On 12th November we celebrated World Kindness Day in Year 1. Lots of us were caught being kind! We designed and painted kindness rocks to give to someone special and we gave the money collected from our Crazy Hair and Silly Sock day to charity. 

In class we enjoyed a story called 'Owl Babies' by Martin Waddell.

Have a listen -

We thought we could be authors and write our own story. We called it 'The Little Scared Owl'. Have a look at our story. We hope you like it.

We have enjoyed a series of drama workshops with Avril from Debutots. She treated us to some seasonal rhymes and songs and a bubble party! It was great fun!
