  • House building in Year 1!

    Year 1 have been busy learning about Traditional Tales this term. They have enjoyed using different materials to construct their own houses – just like the 3 little pigs! They used scientific vocabulary to describe the houses such as rigid, strong, rough, smooth, flimsy and sturdy. They predicted which material would be the strongest and then tried them out.

  • 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.

We can’t wait to see what term 2 brings!
