Welcome to Badgers Class Page!
Our topic this term is Toys. We will be looking at toys from the past and creating our own toys. We will think about how they work and what they are made from. This will include creating our own toy museum and taking part in a history workshop. In R.E. we will be learning about why churches are special for Christians and we will be visiting our local church. P.E. for this term will be on Wednesday afternoons and will be multi-skills held mainly outdoors. Swimming will commence after half-term on Tuesday afternoons. Our Literacy and Numeracy will be linked to our topic. Please ask your class teacher if you have any specific questions about these areas.
On our Wow day we had fun making up new games to play outside. We had to explain our rules to other people so that they could play too. We used all different sorts of equipment. We also made our own board games and had to use our number skills to label the squares correctly. We then played our games with our friends.
We have been learning the art of Kung Fu punctuation to help us write super sentences.
This is how we show a CAPITAL LETTER. We do a deep bow.
We had great fun setting up our toy museum and welcoming our friends from Reception as our first visitors!
WELCOME BACK AND HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Our Spring topic is 'Can you train a dragon?' We will be learning about castles and dragons using traditional tales as our starting point. We will learn about what castles were for, who lived in them and where they were built. The children will have a chance to design their own castles and pretend to be knights at knight school. In maths we shall be having a special '100 day' where we will participate in lots of fun 100 related activities. In RE we will be learning about Sikhism and their celebrations and festivals. Our school Christian Value for this half term is compassion. In PSHE we will be exploring the themes of Going for Goals and keeping safe. Our weekly swimming session continues to be on Tuesday afternoons, commencing 12th January until half term. PE will still be on Wednesday afternoons and could be indoors or outdoors. Please ensure that your child has suitable kit available on these days.
Today we have been really busy badgers!
This morning we came to school dressed in our sports clothes ready to run our mile with a smile.
We began with some stretching with Giraffes and Miss Robinson.....
After a nice rest and some lunch we were treated to a fantastic story session with a special visitor. Fiona's Grandma told us two amazing stories and we all joined in with actions. We enjoyed it sooooooo much!
Easter comes to Eye!
We were very lucky today as Laura's Mummy taught us all about Easter in Poland. We then made our own Easter baskets and went on an Easter egg hunt. We were VERY enthusiastic!
Can you make me better?
This Summer term our first topic is ‘Can you make me better?’ Our Wow day will celebrate our fabulous bodies and all the wonderful things they can do. We will think about keeping fit and healthy and the importance of exercise. In Science we will learn about parts of the body and how we change and grow and we are going to write our own autobiographies, paint self portraits and make moving people puppets. Later in the term we will visit Peterborough Museum to learn about nurses in the past. We will find out about Florence Nightingale, Edith Cavell and Mary Seacole and we will write their biographies. In maths we will continue to consolidate numbers to 100, addition and subtraction to and beyond 20 and applying our skills to problem solving. In RE we will be talking out Islam and in PSHE we will think about our emotions and how to handle them. We will also continue to make our handwriting even neater using our special handwriting guidelines.
We are going to be busy!
This morning we turned our classroom into Scutari hospital! We took turns at the different activities needed to keep the hospital running. We cooked, grew vegetables, cleaned, washed, ironed and bandaged our way through the morning! We also wrote letters home to our family and held interviews for new nurses. Look at all the fun we had:
It is hard to believe that we are about to enter our final half term of the year! However, we still have lots to fit into our last few weeks as Badgers.
Our new topic is 'What can I spy with my little eye?' which has a science focus, looking at minibeasts and our local environment. As part of this we will be spending lots of time in our outside areas looking and growing and we will also visit Eye Nature Reserve to look at the plants and animals living there. We will find out about maps and directions in geography and apply this knowledge in our local environment. In our art sessions we will make beautiful work inspired by the small natural world, whilst in DT we will be designing and making bug homes. Our RE topic focuses on taking care of our wonderful world and includes learning the story of the creation. In PSHE we will look at all aspects of healthy bodies and keeping safe.
Sports day will be an exciting event this term and we will continue to have outside PE on Wednesday afternoons, weather permitting. We will also have swimming on Thursday afternoons, apart from the week beginning 13th June (phonics screening week.) Fathers day activities will also be in June - another afternoon to look forward to!
Let's hope for lots of sun so that we can enjoy this outdoor topic to the full. Don't forget to make sure that your child has suncream and a hat in school so that they can join in all our activities fully protected from what we hope will be a lovely start to summer!
Today we were really lucky - Amelia's Mummy came into school with her deafblind friend and together they taught us about his life and how he communicates. We all found out how to spell out our names using the deafblind manual alphabet. We are going to teach our Mums and Dads at home too. We have decided that we would like to follow our Christian value of service by raising money for deafblind uk.

Luckily the rain stayed away this morning and Year 1 enjoyed a lovely sunny walk down to Eye Green Nature Reserve. We played eye spy and looked for landmarks along our journey, then went on a short walk around part of the lake. We had to look very carefully to see which creatures were hidden away among the trees and plants. Some of us managed to spot a group of small ducklings at the water's edge...
