It is beginning to look like winter at KS1! The children have been inspired by the theme of winter and have produced some amazing displays throughout our corridors and classrooms. We hope you like them!
The year 2 children had a wonderful afternoon with their parents and carers during our Parent Workshop.
Parents and carers were invited in for the afternoon to talk to their children about their learning and activities based on our topic 'Christmas Around The World'.
The children were very excited and proud to share their learning environment and classroom displays.
It was also lovely to see the children demonstrating their perseverance and teamwork skills as they worked hard with their parents to create Christmas themed decorations.
We are now looking forward to seeing our fantastic work displayed in our school hall ready for Christmas at Garlinge!
The children in KS1 have been learning about Remembrance Day, why it is held on this day, what people remember and how they remember.
The children gathered together for a special Remembrance Day assembly and also enjoyed creating their very own poppies which they wore with pride.
Year 2 have been learning about The Great Fire of London. The children have been learning about the main facts linked to the Great Fire and enjoyed sequencing the events on a timeline. After learning about Samuel Pepys and his diaries about The Great Fire of London the children wrote their very own diaries imagining that they were there.
We followed a 17th century bread recipe.
Each class worked hard in their art lessons to create a display about The Great Fire of London in 1666. These were displayed in our year 2 area.
During Term 1 the children in Year 1 have had a fantastic time learning about Harvest. The children were working towards putting on a performance for their parents and carers.
The children really enjoyed learning the story of The Little Red Hen. They were able to learn the story using Makaton signs. This really helped them to recall the different parts of the story.
Then the children learned to sing the songs Oats and Beans and Barley Grow and I Can See Conkers High Up in a Tree. Some of the children also learned to play musical instruments to accompany the songs.
During the week of the performance the children were really excited to make real loaves of bread. They learned about recipes and they were able to sequence how to bake the bread. Some loaves were shown during the performance. The others were,of course, eaten with great relish.
