12. 03. 21 - Returning to school
Here is Class 3 at the end of our first week back together. Everyone was so excited to see each other on Monday 8 March and it very quickly felt like we had never been apart. At the end of the week we celebrated all the dressing up opportunities we had missed over the last two months (including World Book Day), as well as the 7 children who had turned 6 since we were last all together!
Spring Term Lockdown Learning
Whether in school as part of the Year 1 bubble or doing their learning at home, everyone in Class 3 had a busy half term learning about London today and then delving into the past to find out about the events of the Great Fire of London. The children wrote some fantastic sensory poems, and diary entries as fictional characters living in 1666 and as Samuel Pepys, witnessing the events of the fire. We also made bread, with some children even having a go at using an authentic 1666 recipe! During Children’s Mental Health Week we explored lots of different creative activities, allowing the children time to discover new ways of expressing themselves or to help them in times of heightened emotions.
Here are some of the photos of the children completing different learning tasks from this lockdown period.
Class 3 had a fantastic first term in Year 1! Below are some of the highlights from across the term, including:
Celebrating Harvest; Carrying out experiments on our Science Investigation mornings; Trying porridge as part of our work on Goldilocks; Exploring signs of Autumn; Dipping marshmallows to celebrate Bonfire Night; Commemorating Remembrance Day by making poppies for the whole school display on the labyrinth; Christmas Jumper Day; And doing lots of baking (Pudsey biscuits on Children in Need Day; our own run-away Gingerbread men; and our yummy, class Christmas cake).

This week the children in Classes 1 and 2 at Holy Trinity have been looking at different varieties of technology. The children have been programming Bee Bots to follow different pathways and thinking about the language involved in directing something a certain way.
They have also been using remote control cars to develop their positional language in their maths lessons.
The children baked different shapes biscuits as part of their maths work on shapes. The children enjoyed weighing out the different ingredients and mixing it all together to make yummy biscuits.
