Summer 2 in Year 1

We are on Safari  

So this half term we have boarded a plane and found ourselves on Safari in Kenya. We have had a thrilling half term finding out all about Africa and its wildlife. We have had a visit from a leopard tortoise who we did some fantastic writing about and have learnt all about Jane Goodall the anthropologist and the good work she has done with chimpanzees. Thank you once again to everyone who contributed to our Water Aid collection where we raised a staggering £727.22. We have taken part in our Road Safety program about how to cross roads safely including how to cross a road between parked cars and how to cross on a corner of a roadWe rounded off the half term with Africa Day where the children took part in a range of fun activities including necklace making, drumming, Masai jumping and cake decorating to name a few. Year One has been a fantastic year and we would like to thank you for all your support with all home learning, WOW days etc. over the last year. It has made the children’s year much more enjoyable. We hope you all have a fantastic Summer Holiday and look forward to seeing you all in September!
