Trip to Pizza Express

For our first trip in year 1, we got the opportunity to visit the Pizza Express restaurant in Islington. We made our very own pizzas using tomato and cheese toppings. We had to follow specific instructions to make sure we made the perfect margherita pizzas. We also got to wear special chef hats and aprons to look the part. The best part of the trip was that we were allowed to take our pizzas home to enjoy with our family and friends.

International Day

Darren from Dance Days came to teach us a special African dance. We had so much fun practicing the routine.

Black History Month

To celebrate Black History Month, we took part in many different activities over the week.

We started off by finding out what Black History month is and why it is celebrated all over the world. We then looked closely at the life of Rosa Parks and discussed how her story has changed the way things are today.


“ Rosa Parks was frustrated because the bus driver was not being kind”


“She’s angry because the driver tell her to get off”

We also looked read the story; Handa’s surprise to celebrate Black History Month. We also made props to help us retell the story through role play.

RE Day

We participated in Godly play with Patrick who works at St Mary’s church. Patrick told us about the story of Jesus feeding the 5000. We really enjoyed joining in to retell the story using props. We created a stain glass art work of the fish that Jesus used to feed the five thousand people and we made bread, just like Jesus did for his people. We also did some meditating to finish off our RE day. This really helped us to focus on being  calm and relaxed.  It gave us a chance to think about all the things that we are grateful and thankful for.


Library visit

Every Tuesday morning, year 1 visit Stoke Newington library. We have a story read to us by one of the librarians and then we get to choose a story we want to bring back to school with us. The books we bring back to school are always read to us, one at a time, before we have to give them back the following week. We love visiting the library and choosing new and exciting stories every week!

Aspirations Day

We dressed up in the different costumes that we one day aspire to be like. Carise came to tell us all about her job as a vicar and Zoe came to tell us all about her job as a make-up artist
