The children in Class 1 are really enjoying lots of different role play with the theme of vehicles. So far they have played in an ambulance station and a train station. They are really looking forward to creating a fire station next.

Reception children have been working really hard at writing sentences and using their phonics to sound out words that they want to write.

In Year 1 the children have now moved on to non-fiction writing and are researching monkeys to compile their own fact-sheet. In maths they have had a great time investigating hand and footprints, measuring them in centimetres to find out which suspect was the criminal in a fun activity.

In science the children have completed another investigation into everyday materials, testing whether they alter when stretched, pulled, pushed or bent.
