Weston Playhouse Pantomime Visit on 14th December 2021:
The Reception and Key Stage 1 will be visiting the Weston Playhouse to enjoy a performance of 'Jack and the Beanstalk' on 14th December (more details to follow shortly).



Butterfly Visit 16th July: Year 1 were visited by Munching Caterpillars from the Butterfly Conservation Trust at the end of term. The children learnt the difference between a butterfly and a moth, also how many species of each there are in the UK. They then had the chance to look at some moths closely and to plant some outdoor plants to attract butterflies to the school. The children all enjoyed the experience and have taken home their own seeds to encourage butterflies in the wild.



At the end of Term 3, our Year 1 Bubble children have painted some lovely Valentine's Day artwork in the style of Kandinsky. Here’s their finished pieces



Children's Mental Health Week February 2021:  In support of Children's Mental Health Awareness week, our Year 1 children took part in lots of exciting activities to express themselves last week.

The children painted while listening to music from 'The Carnival of the Animals', they also designed and baked Thank You cakes and drew emotion pictures on T-shirts for 'Inside Out Day'.


Nativity Dress Up Day:  During the last week of Term 2, the Year 1 children dressed up as characters from the Nativity Story. Don't they look amazing! They sequenced the Nativity story and performed some Christmas carols which were videoed and to be shared with parents and carers. It was a fantastic day and the children had lots of fun!



A group of Year 1 children also visited St Martin's Church. They took along some angels which they had made in class and used these to help decorate the Church for Christmas.


The children were shown the crib and the advent wreath. Ethan was allowed to light the candles. They finished their visit by singing 'We wish you a Merry Christmas'.
