The Reserve Advent Calendar

Dear Parents/ Carers,

This week we have been talking about charity with the children and have been overwhelmed at how much they have engaged in discussions about this topic. They have been great at suggesting things that can be donated to charity and why charities are extremely important, especially at this time of the year. We began to research charities and found a great idea called the reverse advent calendar. This idea highlights that the Christmas period should be just as much about ‘giving’ as it is about ‘receiving’. Please see the attached document for a little more information. As staff this is something we would really like to be part of so we have decided that we are going to form a little collection of food which we will add to everyday and at the end of this term we will donate the food to The People’s Kitchen. We thought it would be a great thing for the children to be part of and will be adding to the collection daily with food that we, as staff, will be bringing in. If you would like to make a small donation from the suggested list, then you are more than welcome but please do not feel any pressure to do so. This is a collective effort from all of year one, lead predominately by donations from the staff. We appreciate that it is a difficult time for many at present. The main objective is the message: that if we are in a position to help others it is a very kind and caring thing to do.

Thanks for your support,

The Year One Team

Our Autumn Poem

As Summer turns to Autumn I think of,

Tractors on every field.

Fruit and vegetables for everyone, 

All the farmers go to work,

It's Harvest Time.


A Summer turns to Autumn I think of, 

All the machinery being out,

Lots of people are jumping about,

With peas, leeks, strawberries and more,

It's Harvest Time.


As Summer turns to Autumn I think of,

Sharing with people I love.


Thanking God from up above,

Thankful for everything I have,

It's Harvest Time. 

Our pupils of the week, Matina and Alex.

Wild Wednesday - What a whacky day we have had! We had to work as a team to build a bridge over the crocodile river, we didn't want them to bite us! Magnus brought some garlic and onions for us to plant - how lovely!

Week beginning 19th October - A spooky Halloween sensory circuit. We had to balance along the spooky spiders web, frog hop around the cones and practise creepy yoga poses.

Pupil of the week - This week our wonderful stars are Sienna-Rose and Leonard.

Wild Wednesday - This week we focused on some team building activities, solving out how we could get through the big spider's web and passing the hoop around the circle without leaving go of each other. This made us all giggle! We also worked together to build dens.

Week Beginning 12th October - This week we have been working hard in our PE sessions. We have practised hopscotch, skipping, using a space hopper and planking.

Our pupil of the week this week are Zachary and Japleen

Mental Health Awareness Day - Today we talked about mental health and what it means to look after our minds We shared ideas of how we can look after our minds such as going for a walk, dancing and helping others to find their happiness. The children each had a balloon - this represented their happiness. We asked them to find their own happiness, not everyone could do this so we decided it would be much better to help everyone find theirs.

Week beginning 5th October - On an afternoon, we access our continuous provision. Please take a look at all the wonderful things we have been up to. This week we look at finding where we were born using a world map. We have also talked about local landmarks - can you see our model we made in our STEAM area.

WILD Wednesday... look at all of the fun we have had today. We have made mud faces using natural materials, painted on different textures such as trees and flat walls. Then we printed with leaves. I know we sometimes get a little dirty but we love the afternoon. Please feel free to send the children with spare socks, wellingtons and old coats on a Wednesday.

Tuesday 29th September - Today we completed a sensory circuit. We had to use all of our muscles throughout the session. We talked about the effects exercise has on our body.

We talked about how each piece of art work is 'unique'.
