They have been reading the books of 'Handa's Surprise' and 'The Magic Paintbrush' where they have been writing stories. In science, the children have been studying the topic of 'plants' and keeping diaries of planted seeds. The children loved visiting Colchester Zoo to see animals from around the world and they got to feed the giraffes.

The Year 1 pupils have really enjoyed learning about British monarchs for our ‘Kings and Queens’ topic – they even got to dress up as kings and queens and make their own crowns! The children have been reading ‘A Walk Around London’ and writing information texts about Queen Elizabeth II. The children have loved taking part in ‘science week’ and ‘world book week’. This half term, the children have enjoyed learning through a carousel of activities.
