They all enjoyed taking part in a variety of races including an obstacle race, sprinting, a sack race and an egg and spoon race. The final race was the highly competitive class relay - which was won by Hedgehogs Class!
Year 1 were very excited as they were going on their school trip to Sayers Croft in Cranleigh. We all had a wonderful time pond dipping, going on a minibeat hunt and taking part in an orienteering session around the centre. The sun shone all day and all the children were beautifully behaved. We want to thank the parent volunteers, and the staff at Sayer’s Croft for the wonderful day!
African Art Topic
Koala class imagined that we were explorers that had an expedition to the Arctic. We packed our bags, travelled on a ship and got stuck in the ice! The children had to help each other across the thin, dangerous ice and set up camp. They fished for food, and searched for polar bears!
Great Fire of London Burning
Children designed and created Tudor houses using cereal boxes and paper. After learning about the Great Fire of London we recreated the street where the fire began, and watched the fire spread through the houses. We discussed why the fire spread so quickly and what people would have to do to escape!
