This term our topic is 'Reaching Out' so far we have been learning all about bridges and structures around the world. 

Joanne from SENTINUS came in to do some exciting activities with us, we made a tall structure using marshmallows and pasta and we also made bridges out of paper.  It was great fun!

We are learning how bridges and structures are made - types of materials/ forces/ shapes.

Our Magnet Hunt...

Allstate Cyber Safety for kids.

We had a visit from Allstate, they gave us a talk all about Cyber Safety, it was very interesting!  We all know how to be extra safe on the internet.


We went to St Patrick's Primary School and had a great time with our friends.  The theme was all about 'Bridges', we made bridges out of K'nex and we played a variety of games, 'bridging' us all together as friends.  It was great fun!

Our Bridge Walk

We went on a walk all around Castlederg to find 'Bridges and Structures'.  In total we found 6 bridges and we got to see the Cenotaph and the railway station.

World Book Day - Diversity Day

On World Book Day this year we had a diversity theme, we thought about different disabilities and people from other countries.  Miss Baxter gave us a few activities to do to experience what it would be like to wear a hearing aid, a pair of glasses or to sit in a wheel chair.  We also read stories to Year 1, it was great fun!
