History WOW Day

17 May 2018

Hi 1LJ!

We had such a fun WOW day and the children looked truly royal in their costumes! We learnt some fun facts about Queen Elizabeth I and Queen Victoria, designed a royal crown and a birthday cake for the Queen and we even wrote letters to the Queen and Prince Harry and Meghan. The children enjoyed their Royal Banquet in the hall where the got to try some 'royal' juice and in the afternoon we learnt a medieval dance.

Other things we have learnt this week:

English: The Emperor's New Clothes - Sequencing the story and writing book reviews.

PSHE: Talking about our families and celebrating how all of our families are made up differently. 

Maths: Recapping activities  - counting in 2's, 5's and 10's.

Star of the Week

Well done to Harris, who is our Star of the Week for working really hard on his handwriting!

National Portrait Gallery 

On Friday 8th June, Year 1 will be visiting the National Portrait Gallery to look at portraits of Kings and Queens. The workshop will start at 1pm and finishes at 2.30pm. We will try our best to be back in time for 3.30pm but may be a few minutes late as we will need to do toilet stops before we head back to school. We will find a spot in Trafalgar Square to have our lunch. 

Show and Tell

Next Wednesday is Tigers turn for Show and Tell. Learning theme: Kings and Queens, simple fractions (halves and quarters).

Happy learning
