In our Topic lessons, we have been exploring the life of Christopher Columbus. Here is a movie trailer we made to highlight the key parts of Christopher Columbus’ expedition.

Year 1 were very fortunate to have some planting experts that came to teach us how to grow our very own herbs and fruits.

Miri, Kate and Kimone talked to us about all the things that plants need in order to grow and stay healthy. They then showed us how to carefully prepare the soil for some fun planting. We planted lots of different herbs and we cannot wait to see how well they grow in the coming weeks.

Thank you to the three lovely parents who took time out to help us with this planting project. We had such a great time!

Year 1 went to the British museum to take part in a Maths workshop.  We explored different 2D shapes, lines, patterns, colour and counting. We had the opportunity to explore the African gallery to hunt for all the shapes and patterns we learnt. We also handled examples of African beadwork and applied our numeracy skills to create our very own wristbands. We created beautiful wristbands with repeating patterns using 2D shapes and different types of lines.

We were very lucky to have a special visitor who spoke to us about her job as a vet. We learnt lots of new things!

Here are some of our pictures from aspirations day. Can you guess what we want to be when we are older?

Our first visit to Stoke Newington library. We were very lucky to be able to choose our own books to bring back to class to enjoy. We also had a story read to us by one of the librarians. It was lots of fun! We can’t wait to go back!
