Visit to Tring Musuem - Tuesday 18th June 2019
Year 1 had an interesting visit to Tring Museum last Tuesday 18th June, bringing to life their work on classification of animal groups. The two workshops involved pond dipping and chasing insects with nets in the meadow. They then identified what they had captured before releasing them back in their habitats. Thank you to all the parent helpers.

The Seaside - Thursday 9th May
Year 1 children became Victorian visitors to the seaside this week. They used old pennies to spend at the exciting stalls, including Roll a Penny; the Fortune Teller and the Café.  They decorated shell boxes, made flags and coloured postcards. They also watched a fabulous Punch and Judy Show.
Afterwards they did some lovely, descriptive writing about their day.

Thank you to the PTA who funded this marvellous event.

The Great Fire of London Workshop - Wednesday 16th January 2019

Sixty excited Year 1 children were transported back to 1666 as they took part in the History Off the Page Workshop on Wednesday this week. Through drama and practical activities, they found out what it would be like to live through the Great Fire of London. The children will be using this experience in their History lessons. Thank you to the PTA for helping to fund this wonderful event.
