The Walk – Y1 Code

 

This amazing Year 1 Coder has produced ‘The Walk’ using Scratch Junior on his iPad. He selected a background suitable for a lovely walk along the beach. He chose to use the Cat Walking character and used two of these sprites. He used the keyboard to type his title, ‘The Walk.’ He then chose a lady character and provided her with 2 leads for her pets. The pets saw a shooting star as the sun went down and enjoyed their healthy walk.

Year 1 & The Great Fire

 

What a performance! Year 1 transported us all the way back to 1666 and told us the story of ‘The Great Fire of London’. They remembered all their lines, spoke very clearly, showed us their amazing work and sang beautifully. We are very proud of them! Thank you to our #WonderfulCommunity for their continued support and to the Year 1 Staff Team. An enormous well done to our star performers, a great afternoon.

National Emergency Services Museum

 

Year 1 and 2 had a great time at the National Emergency Services Museum in Sheffield. We loved exploring the old fire engines and police cars and pretending we were driving them.  We had an amazing time dressing up and talking about the Great Fire of London. We all really enjoyed our trip. Thank you to Mrs. Fitzsimmons and her army of helpers – including Miss Knox’s Dad for helping us to enjoy such a great day.

Take Off & Landing in Year 1

Year 1 have been working on Coding & problem solving using Swift Code and Drones! At ICT Club, we managed to make the drone air borne but didn’t have a smooth landing! Could we fix this problem? Of course, we could. A fabulous session, well done Mr. Child and especially to our Year 1 programmers.

Fire of ‘London’

In Year 1 our new topic is the Great Fire of London. To introduce this exciting unit of learning, we constructed the city of London using a range of materials. The children spent a whole morning looking at maps of London and pictures of landmarks/buildings such as the Houses of Parliament and Big Ben. Once the research was completed, we made our very own City of London! Unfortunately, as in 1666, “London” set on fire. The aim was for children to gain an understanding of what it is like to lose something to fire. Of course, when the task was completed (safely) we talked to the city construction workers about why we ‘destroyed London’ and the children really empathised with our capital’s citizens of yester year. A fantastic day which generated excitement, discussion and MANY questions. Well done everybody and thank you to our #WonderfulCommunity for your support in the topic launch; the ‘wow factor’ was certainly evident!
