We were lucky enough to visit Marwell Zoo.
We saw lots of animals- some of our highlights were:
- fighting zebras
- playful monkeys
- chomping giraffes
- lazy snow leopards
and.... the playground!
Thank you to the parents who were able to come along to help and well done to all the children for doing Ash Grange proud with their fantastic manners and behaviour.
God Save the King!
We had a great time celebrating the King's coronation and all got dressed
up to mark this historical occasion!
We found out all about the ceremony and the Royal family and enjoyed
lots of yummy treats at our whole-school tea party.
Summer 1 - Playtime!
We have really enjoyed the start of our new topic- Playtime!
We looked at some very old toys from the museum and compared them to our modern toys. We also looked at our own family to help us understand chronology.
Take a look at some photos of us enjoying some traditional games!
Spring 2 - Bright Lights, Big City
We have enjoyed learning all about the Great Fire of London this half-term and were lucky enough to have a visit from Samuel Pepys! We have been practising our painting skills in art and we have looked at paintings by Kandinsky and Mondrian to help us paint our own pictures. In maths we have been learning to measure. We have also been learning about how to keep ourselves safe.
We had a fantastic time making Paddington's favourite food- marmalade sandwiches! We also made delicious Paddington cupcakes and loved sharing them with our teddies at our very own teddy bears picnic!
Spring 1 - Superheroes
We launched our Superheroes topic by designing super masks and making flying superhero paintings. We also went on a super search for Evil Pea and will be writing fantastic stories about Supertato and his rescue mission!
Autumn 2 - Dinosaur Planet
This half term we are travelling back 65 million years ago to the time of the dinosaurs! They’re rampaging across the dusty earth, swishing their enormous tails and baring their fearsome teeth!
We were paleontologists, making dinosaur fossils and creating pasta skeletons.
Look at our amazing project homework! We made dinosaur kingdoms, dinosaur books filled with fascinating facts and made impressive fossils to study just like real paleontologists.
Autumn 1 - Enchanted Woodland
In Science, we have been learning about what plants need to grow and how to look after them. We planted our own seeds and have been challenged with looking after them until they flower.
Also in Science, we have been learning about what happens when the seasons change from Summer to Autumn. We went on an autumn hunt and found yellow, orange and red leaves, conkers, acorns and it felt much colder than it does in Summer. We know that this means it is Autumn! We painted our own unique Autumn tree, as every tree is unique.
We received a very special letter from the Ash Grange fairies! They asked Year 1 to help keep them safe by building them some houses. We designed houses and built them from natural materials we found and we even saw some real fairy houses in the trees!
