Alien Attack! 

What an exciting couple of weeks we have had! Mr Napoleon saw an alien spaceship and sent the video to Miss Barker. We had to write questions and interview Mr Napolean to find out what he saw. We then created newspapers which we took home and gave to our adults so they knew what was going on. We also created news reports. We worked in pairs and filmed them using the green screen.  


In science, we have been learning how to make a prediction. We had to predict what would happen when we put Mentos inside a coke bottle. We were amazed when it exploded everywhere! 

Pirate day

We loved pirate day! We dressed up as pirates and spent the day taking part in pirate activities. We went on a treasure hunt, learnt a pirate song and even made pirate snacks!

The best part of the day was when we invited all the mummies and daddies in to watch our dance that we have been making up in PE. They really enjoyed our pirate performance. 

KS1 Agility

On Monday 1st October, we got in a coach and took part in the HWSPP agility day at Wodson Park. There were lots of other schools there and we got to try lots of new activities.

We really enjoyed the tunnel and the curling as we hadn’t done these activities before.

Forest Session

In our forest session this week, we made magic forest wands. We used string, a stick and different types of leaves to create our wands. At the end of the session, we tested different spells!

Road safety

This week the year 1s had a road safety talk. They listened to why it is important to stay safe on the roads. They learnt to “Stop, Look and Listen” and practised crossing a pretend road.
