Year 1 enjoyed a special visit from two dragon hunters on our themed Dragon Day. We learnt about the different types of dragons and even saw some dragon spit! Unfortunately, Fluffy the red dragon, had escaped the cage so we couldn't see her but we wrote some missing dragon posters to describe what she looked like. We had a great day making our own paper plate dragons and looked closely at the features of a dragon to draw our own using oil pastels. 

Year 1 enjoyed taking part in a sponsored walk in the woods, searching for different sticks after reading the story, 'Stickman.' Thank you to all the parents involved in supporting our event, the money raised will go towards resourcing our outdoor learning area. 
We also looked for signs of Autumn linked to our science topic of changing seasons. 

Year 1 completed a reading trail this week, linked to the story Stickman. We had to read the clues then complete the correct actions. It was lots of fun!

Year 1 have had a super start to their new classes and have enjoyed exploring the outdoor areas and used natural objects to make different faces!
