Odd Socks Day, by Mrs Schultz
Date: 22nd Nov 2023 @ 5:49pm
The children wore odd socks last week to celebrate our differences. We talked about how we are all unique and that nobody should be bullied for being different to somebody else. Anti-bullying week this year focused on 'making a noise' and using our voices when we see, hear or experience any form of bullying. We listened to some great songs by Andy and the Odd Socks and celebrated our differences.

We wore spots and raised lots! Well done Year 1 for supporting Children in Need last week. We donned our best spots and stripes, and had an day of fun last Friday. The children finger painted Pudsey's bandana, had a colouring competition, coloured by numbers, completed some Pudsey themed Maths work and enjoyed some lovely cakes from the cake sale of course!
Birkenhead Park, by Mrs Schultz
Date: 22nd Nov 2023 @ 5:24pm
Year 1 had a great time visiting Birkenhead Park. We looked at the signs of Autumn and learned a lot about the wildlife in the park. The children collected leaves, acorns, conkers and fir cones to bring back to school. We talked about the seeds from the trees and why some trees stay green right through the Winter, when others lose their leaves. We watched the squirrels and the ducks, and talked about what they eat. The Park Ranger, Hannah, told us all about the roles of a Ranger and we helped her to feed the ducks (and the pigeons!). We had a great time exploring the park and taking on the role of a Park Keeper (Ranger) just like Percy the Park Keeper in our English work.
Sponsored Balancing!, by Mrs Schultz
Date: 12th Oct 2023 @ 8:56pm
Year 1 had a great day yesterday with several balancing activities throughout the day. We balanced on one leg, we balanced an egg on a spoon, we balanced carefully on the balancing beams and finally we balanced a bean bag on our heads. It was very tricky! We had lots of wobbles, lots of concentration faces and lots of tongues sticking out (apparently that helps with the concentration!) The children were amazing and did not give up. Some children even managed to balance on one leg for three whole minutes! Dig deep everyone and give what you can. We look forward to seeing the sponsorship money rolling in. Thanks, as always for your continued support.
Planet Heroes!, by Mrs Schultz
Date: 9th Oct 2023 @ 6:14pm
As part of the RE retreat last Friday 6th October, the children in Year 1 made a pledge to become a Planet Hero. They each made a badge to take home and attended a theatre workshop and production. In class, they learned all about the plastic that ends up in our oceans and how it affects the wildlife and ocean creatures. They used old plastic bags to make jellyfish. They worked really well in their teams and it was lovely to hear them talk through their designs and ideas. Then we talked about the wonders of nature and how beautiful God's world is. The children used natural materials to make art. Most of our children made faces using the conkers, pine cones, leaves and flowers. What a lovely day it was, we can't wait for them to share the news and recruit more Planet Heroes!

Welcome to Year 1!, by Mrs Schultz
Date: 17th Sep 2023 @ 8:00pm
What a great couple of weeks the children have had. They have settled in really well and it has been lovely to watch each and every one of them come in with a smile. We spent the first week talking about our Summer holidays and the children's favourite subject... themselves! The children decided on our class rules for the year and we made some lovely photo frames of our first day in Year 1. By the second week, we have already begun our learning journey for Year 1. We have mixed primary colours to make secondary colours with the paint, been on a plant hunt and much more! I hope the children are as excited as we are for the next coming weeks.

Y1 Trip to New Brighton, by Mr Chamberlain
Date: 15th Jul 2022 @ 2:49pm
Year 1 had a wonderful trip to New Brighton! We were very lucky to go inside Fort Perch Rock and learn some history about the Fort. We then went to The Tower Grounds and saw where New Brighton Tower used to be and where the Black Pearl used to be, we made amazing sketches of what it used to look like! Then we went down the prom and into Vale Park, where we had a lovely lunch on the grass before exploring the fairy gardens and going on a fairy hunt.
Thanks to all the amazing staff and parent helpers for your hard work today, and to the amazing children for being so well behaved.
