Recent updates from Turtle class

  • KS1 – Library visit

    KS1 enjoyed their recent trip to West Swindon library. The librarian told the children all about the huge variety of books on offer and they then had the chance to share a book with their friends – which they thoroughly enjoyed. The trip was then rounded off perfectly with a lovely story read to them by the librarian. They were also able to take some books back to school to enjoy.

  • Term 1 fun in Year 1 – Fables and Materials

    Seahorses and Turtles had a great first term learning all about fables and materials. We had a visit from a tortoise, investigated which material would make the strongest house, did lots of practical Maths, completed a range of exciting challenges and even visited the local Library. We can’t wait to see what term 2 brings!

    In Year 1 we are learning about plants and our five senses in Science. We explored different fruits, herbs and plants including lemons, basil and garlic and used our senses to describe them. We even had a go at tasting some of them!

  • KS1 – Hanukkah

    We have been learning about the Jewish festival of Hanukkah. The year 2 children taught the Year 1 children how to play Spin the Dreidel. They then used this experience to write a set of commands to teach others how to play.
