Look what is happening in Year 1!

A trip to Thwaites Mill and vehicles fit for a queen!

Friday 7th December | 2 comments

We all had a great time on our trips to Thwaites Mill. The children learnt about how the Victorians celebrated Christmas – they all made a traditional cracker and card. They also had fun playing with Victorian toys, making delicious lemonade and having a turn at making a rag rug. Thank you again to all the parents who supported us on our trips.

In maths we have finished our unit of work about shape and completed an end of unit assessment. All the children tried really hard – well done!

Year 1 have been busy designing and then making vehicles for the queen. First the children looked at wheeled vehicles and thought about the queen’s requirements. Can your child show you the axle, axle holder and body on a toy car? Next the children created designs and practised joining materials. Year 1 used lots of skills to build their vehicles including, sawing and sticking. Did you know that pegs and card can all be used to make axle holders? The finished carriages and cars are certainly suitable for royalty and there is not a pumpkin to be seen!

The children have also been busy rehearsing the Christmas show. Thank you for all your help learning the song words at home – keep practising! The performances are on Tuesday 18th December at 2pm and Wednesday 19th December at 9.30am in the Junior Hall.

Today we said goodbye to Mrs Purfield. She has left Farsley Farfield, after 7 years, to start a new job working with lots of families. Good luck Mrs Purfield – you will be missed.

Have a super weekend.
