Today we came to school dressed as pirates! First we went to Pirate School and learned the secret pirate code. We then went on a scavenger hunt to find lots of clues. The only problem was – they were written in a SECRET Pirate code! We were very clever and worked as a team to solve the clues to find the treasure. Our day ended with a whole school pirate party. What a fantastic day!
Monday afternoon, our key stage one pupils got involved in an interactive number show. The concept was to have fun learning maths through dance. The Numberbods (groovy dancers) showed us how to make numbers with our bodies, dressed up and made a toy shop then tested our calculation skills by physically making different number sentences. A lot was going on!
Welcome to Year One.

In Year 1, we have been looking at the artwork of Andy Goldsworthy. The materials used in Andy Goldsworthy’s art often include brightly coloured flowers, leaves, mud, pinecones, snow, stone, twigs, and thorns. He has been quoted as saying, “I think it’s incredibly brave to be working with flowers and leaves and petals.
We went out into the school grounds and collected items that would allow us to produce our own versions of Goldsworthy art.
