A special visitor…

Today we were very lucky to have a visit from Mrs Claus and her elf. The children in Year 1 were very excited to see her and all received a special gift. Miss Wright was incredibly proud that so many children used their manners and were so welcoming to Mrs Claus!

Animal Antics at Leeds City Museum

Year 1 had an amazing time at Leeds City Museum today! We started our day with an exciting workshop. We got some time to explore the Life on Earth gallery looking for different creatures. Then we got the chance to look at a chimpanzee skull, a polar bear skull and a real sea turtle. Afterwards, we got crafty and made a habitat for our creature, before going back into the gallery to explore more!

Year 1’s Feathered Friends

On Thursday we were lucky to have a visit from Susan from the British Hen Welfare Trust and her two hens, Doris and Gertrude. She told us all about how hens have different bodies to us and held Doris while we stroked her soft feathers.

Year 1’s Cinema Treat

For our fantastic hard work and excellent behaviour so far this year, we got to spend the morning of Pudsey day at the cinemas. Here we are, waiting eagerly for the film to start. We watched Mary & the Witch’s Flower.

You need to help others if they are stuck

We have been very busy completing our Commando Joe missions in Year 1. Friday afternoon is our mission time! Steve Backshall has asked us to help him on some important wildlife treks. This week we had to work together as a team to rescue some endangered koalas from a tree.

In our previous missions, we have packed our bags for our trek…

We have returned a stranded whale to the sea…

& we have gathered the crocodile eggs up before they were eaten.

Phew! I wonder what Steve will ask us to do next!
