Year 1

 Welcome to Year 1! 

 

Our whole school topic is 'Let there be light'. We have started our topic by learning about Diwali, the festival of lights. We have read the story of Rama and Sita, made diya lamps and designed our own Rangoli patterns.

 

Children will have PE on a Wednesday, Thursday and Friday so please make sure children have their PE kits in school on these days.

Science day - we enjoyed seeing the effect of dropping mentos into a bottle of coke! We made our own predictions about what might happen - some of these were very accurate.
