The QIS garden is now looking fantastic thanks to Mr Cowley, Miss Peters and the Primary gardening club children. All the plants are now labelled and we would encourage staff and students to take a look and perhaps sketch or just enjoy them.
To celebrate our new topic ‘Going on Safari’ the pupils in Year One dressed up as safari animals and participated in some exciting activities. The pupils created paper plate necklaces using patterns in the style of the Maasai tribe in Kenya. They also designed and produced their own binoculars which they then used for an animal hunt around the playground. The pupils found all sorts of interesting animals hiding in our school bushes. The Year One students are now looking forward to learning more about these animals and about the lives of people in Kenya throughout the term.
This year, the Year One teachers are incorporating independent play based activities into the classroom. In addition to carpet sessions, teacher focused groups and whole class Phonics teaching the year one children are given time to access play- based activities that deepen their understanding of what they have been taught. This approach to learning builds the pupils independence, advances their social skills and gives them the opportunity to use the skills that they have learned. These photographs show a few of the learning activities the Year One pupils have engaged in this term.
