Little Red Riding Hood

Today we had a visit from Little Red Riding Hood. She told us all about the big bad wolf and what happened in the woods. We wrote questions to ask her using a question mark. This week we have also acted out the story, we practised having good expression and performed it to the class.


Today we had our very first forest session as our topic is "into the woods". We loved exploring our forest area and we collected lots of bugs in our pots. Look at the photos to see what we found! 

Royal Wedding

We really enjoyed dressing up as guests to the Royal Wedding on Friday! We all looked very POSH. We took part in lots of activities including designing a cake, a dress and a menu all for the the wedding. 
We wish Harry and Meghan a happy marriage. 


In Science we have planted our own beanstalks. We had to write instructions before we could plant them, so we knew what to do and what we needed. We have then looked after our beanstalks by watering them and putting them by the window. Most of our beanstalks grew bigger than our castles! 


We have been learning about Christianity. We visited our church and drew pictures of the candles and stain glass windows we saw. We then came back to class and made our own stain glass windows. Reverend Chris also came to visit our school to answer all our questions on Christianity. 

World Book Day

On world book day our class author was Roger Hargreaves. He wrote the Mr Men and Little Miss books so we dressed up as these characters. We spent the day going round different classes completing fun activities in each classroom relating to different authors.

Zoo Trip

For our school trip we went to Whipsnade Zoo. We had an amazing day and the weather was lucky for us! We saw sleeping lions, elephants, red panda, otters, rhinos, giraffes and we even went to the butterfly house and had them land on us! We had a workshop were we learnt about different animals habitats and got to touch lots of different skeletons. At the end of the day we got a chance to go on the adventure playground.

Dance Festival 

On 22nd February our Year 1s took to Hertford Theatre stage dressed as Minions! They performed a dance to “Happy” by Pharrell Williams and had the whole audience clapping along. The children came off stage with such a buzz and really enjoyed watching the other schools dances. Thank you for all the parents who came to watch and support and for the lovely feedback. The whole of Apples and Pears team were really proud of them. 

Sock Day

On Monday 22nd January we had SOCK DAY! We all came to school in stripy, spotty or colourful socks. We talked about our socks and wrote about them using adjectives. Then we learnt all about odd and even numbers by looking for odd socks around the classroom. Finally, we learnt to count in 2s and multiply by 2.
