Water Fun!

The children in Year 1 have been learning about capacity this week They have been reading and measuring ml and l. On Wednesday we all participated in a water run challenge. The children had to decide which container would be best to transport water, using their knowledge of capacity. They thought about the size, surface area and how much the container could hold. Everyone had great fun including Miss Burke and Miss Novell.


This week we have been learning about capacity during our Maths sessions, report writing in Literacy and weaving during our Art and Creativity lesson. Don’t forget Sky’s class assembly on Thursday 20th March!


Today we have been producing African sounds. The children have impressed us by their skills on the djembe drums and joining in with tribal songs. What a musical day!

What’s that mysterious object?

The children in Sky class had a great afternoon at St Albans Museum. They transformed into detectives and investigated mysterious objects from the past. As part of their investigation they thought about what the objects are made out of. Our new topic this half term is all about different materials.

Eco Week!

Here’s our Eco Rap that we performed in assembly today accompanied by our instruments!

Saving our planet is really cool,

You should start by walking to school.

Reduce, Recycle, re-use,

It’s always in the news!

It’s not hard to recycle card.

Bottles, paper, jars and cans,

Leave them out for the recycling vans.

Eco week is really neat,

Let’s all join the ECO BEAT!


Take one!

This week we have been using the ipads to film. We created a set of rules for making a good recording and then practised filming our friends. The children have also been learning to tell the time and enjoyed watching a short film to inspire creative writing.

Next week is Eco Week! If you have any spare newspapers, we need them! Please bring them to school by Tuesday.






Marvellous Muesli!

After last week’s weighing success, the children learnt to weigh items in grams. This morning we all enjoyed sharing breakfast together after weighing the ingredients.  The children loved having muesli for breakfast , here is the recipe if you would like to try it at home;

150g Oats

100g Bran flakes

50g raisins

Keep an eye out for the childrens’ work on display.




A Balancing Act !

Measuring weight has been our focus in Maths this week. The children have been investigating heavy and light objects. They have learnt to use balancing scales and cubes to measure weight. Next week we are going to be learning how to weigh using grams. If you’re cooking this weekend get the children in the kitchen!







On Monday the children in Aqua class visited the St Albans Museum. They found out about washing in the past. The children handled real artefacts and they really enjoyed miming the ‘washing story’ to music.

Dont worry Sky class you will be visiting the museum in a few weeks!

Starry Night

This week the children have impressed us with their artistic skills during our Art and Creativity lesson. They have been looking at Vincent Van Gogh’s ‘Starry Night’ painting and talking about line, colour and shape. In our Maths lesson the children have wowed us by finding Hundreds, Tens and Units within different numbers.




We’re Back!

Happy New Year!

This term our topic is Weather. We have all been very busy talking about and watching the weather forecast.







The children have also been putting mixed up numbers back into the correct order from smallest to biggest. They have had great fun with this using large numbers to create a human number line.
