Year 1 assembly - coming soon!

Keep a look out for your invite to attend the year 1 assembly on Wednesday 2nd July 2014. The children have been trying very hard to learn their readings, songs and dances. We hope to see you there :)

Talking hands

In year one we have enjoyed learning sign language with Talking Hands. Every Wednesday Ian comes in to teach us signs, all

the children attend and we are looking forward to showing off our sign language to all the parents and carers in our assembly on Friday 11th at 9.15. We hope to see you there!

Chester Zoo

We enjoyed our trip to Chester Zoo. We saw lots of animals including tigers, monkeys, snakes and elephants. When we got back to school we drew a map of the zoo, we wrote a recount of our trip and painted our favourite animal.
