Week ending Wednesday 21st May

Well hasn’t this term flown by!
This week the children have been learning about different joining techniques to make a puppet out of an old toilet roll tube.
First they explored all the different ways of joining paper together.  They used split pins, staples, paper clips, treasury tags, glue and sellotape.
Next the children thought about which fairy tale character they wanted to make and then they planned how they were going to make it.
After that the children started to make them.  They were brilliant!
Next half term is very busy!
There is Science week and Islamic focus week as well as sports day and a whole school trip.
Out topic in year 1 next term is ‘The great outdoors’.  As you can imagine we are going to be spending a lot of time outside.  Please ensure the children have a sun hat and a water bottle in school. 
In science the children are going to be learning about plants and will even grow their own! 
In topic we will be learning all about Harpenden.  We will go on a local walk and use maps and plans to find and locate different buildings and features. 
We hope you have a lovely half term.
