Year 1

The Year one Team would just like to say a very big thank you for the gorgeous and very generous, end of year gifts. The children's portraits of their teachers are brilliant and a lovely memory to keep from a very special class of children. Wishing you all a super summer holiday!

Wednesday 14th July - And the fun just keeps coming! To celebrate our Around the World - Australia topic, what better way to end than with a party? We combined our party with year 2 who have been learning about Africa. Year 2 provided a yummy African lime cake and a variety of exotic fruit. Year one made typical Aussie party food - vegemite sandwiches, lamingtons and fairy bread. I think you might need to add vegemite to your shopping lists (Morrisons), as lots of children said that this was their favourite!

13th July - The children have absolutely loved designing, making and racing their wacky races vehicles over the last week. Today saw the finalist race their vehicles in front of the whole school. Jake managed to get his car moving by balloon power and took 1st place. Buster's car was the fastest off the ramp! Loads of fun had by all. The best design award went to Immie and Millie, who both tried to follow their design plan when making their model.

Friday 9th July 

Message: There will be no more spellings and no more homework now!! We are nearly at the end! You all deserve a rest!! Thank you for all your hard work this year! 

Thank you SO SO much for generously funding today's Science Workshop - the children LOVED it and in the words of Husayn, "it was the best day of our lives"!!!!  We learnt a lot about chemical reactions and had a lot of science fun!! 

 

Next week, all the children at Holy Trinity will be celebrating STEM week. They will be designing and making a vehicle to race the following week, in our whole school event, Wacky Races. 

Year one have already designed their vehicles this week and have been super creative. They are very excited to get on with the making process next week.

 

Most resources that are needed will be provided and the children will have a choice of what materials to use. There are, however, a few items we would like your help to collect.  I know an email was sent this week, but here is a reminder of what we need for next Monday.

 

Year 1- small plastic bottles, paper towel or toilet roll tubes, plastic bottle lids, cardboard. (Ask your child if they are using a bottle or a tube!)

 

Many thanks

Mrs Rhodes

Thursday 1st July - Year 1 really enjoyed their trial Zumba session today. Look at those moves!

Today Reception and Year 1 were lucky to attend an amazing workshop by Chertsey Museum learning about the Seaside. The workshop focussed on the Seaside in the past. We learned about how people travelled to the seaside, how their clothes and swimming costumes were very different to now and what activities they enjoyed in the past, such as Punch and Judy shows and donkey rides. We all got an opportunity to dress up in olden day clothes, create and watch a Punch and Judy show, make a puppet, sort postcards from the past and present and write and design our very own seaside postcard. We all had a wonderful time and learned something new.

On Tuesday this week, year 1 and year 2 had an amazing time on their trip to Legoland. There was so much excitement, laughter and big smiles. Year 1 attended a Story Maker workshop where they were able to plan and then create a 4 part story using lego. Year 2 attended a Robotics workshop where they were able to build and program their own interactive models. The rest of the day was spent exploring the park, and lego exhibits, designing a colourful fish and watching it swim around at Lego Reef, watching the action packed pirate show and funny puppet show, taking to the wheel at driving school and being underwater explorers on the Deep Sea Adventure. What a wonderful way to spend the day!!

Sports Day - We had such a super day today, in the boiling heat, challenging ourselves and having fun in our carousel activities and running races. Our bears made a great cheer squad and we loved the ice lollies and the picnic on the field too.

Archery - We had a fantastic archery lesson on Monday. We all got to learn how to load our bow and shoot our arrows. It was hard to hit the target! Saira was the overall winner in year 1, she managed to hit the bulls eye!

Please look at the poster below!!

 

Due to the poor weather forecast for Thursday, we are now moving our EYFS / KS1 Sports Day and Teddy Bear Picnic to Wednesday morning 16th June.

Please ensure that your child has a water bottle, sun cream and hat, their teddy to cheer them on and is dressed in a coloured t shirt to match their house team.

 

Thank you
