Here they are on their trip:

KS1 Nativity Play – Aliens tell the Christmas Story!

This afternoon, Year 1 and 2 put on their version of the Christmas Story, with a group of aliens stranded on earth telling the story. There were stars and angels and Mary and Joseph, who like the aliens, could find no home. The children acted brilliantly and sang their hearts out. Well done, we are very proud of you!

Year 1 Toys Day

On Friday, Year 1 had a theme day learning all about toys.

Themed around their ‘Toys’ History topic they undertook several activities over the day. Children drew old toys, played with toys from the past and made their own ball and cup game which they really enjoyed playing with.

Children also wrote questions to ask Mr Riordan and he came in to answer the children’s questions, who explained all about toys and life from when he was young.
