Hello again from Maple.
What a busy last term we have had already with the swimming, summer fair and dads into school day and still a lot more activities are coming in the next few weeks ! We try to cram in as much fun as we can along the way and enjoy the last few weeks of being in year 1 :)
Last week we invited the dads into school to spend some time with us in the classroom. We decided to go with the castle theme which linked in nicely with our English and History topic. In the morning, the children and the dads were busy building castles out of junk material and even painted their fabulous creations! It was a rather messy morning, but full of laughter and so much fun!
In the afternoon Maple and Holly class had the experience of a medieval banquet. We all dressed up as a person that lived in the medieval times such as kings, queens, princesses and knights. Everyone looked fantastic! (even the dads who made the effort to be part of our role play by dressing up - well done daddies!)
After our treasure hunt for shields on the school playground, we made our own crowns, shields and swords and decorated them. We then went into the hall where we had a go at learning a medieval dance. The dads joined in too and we all danced together. The boys entertained the crowd with a short sword fight and we finished the day with a hearty feast of fruit, biscuits, cheese and “wine”!
We had a lovely day with the dads and really enjoyed sharing our medieval day with them :)
This is the term when I like to reflect on how much the children have grown and matured in just one academic year and it is time for them to move on and leave Maple class in just a few weeks time. We are extremely proud of our pupils; their attitude to learning, their behaviour in class, their strong friendships and their resilience have come on in leaps and bounds and we know they are ready for their next adventures and new challenges that year 2 will offer.
This is our last class page…it has been a pleasure reporting on your learning journey in Maple class. Well done for this year and we wish you all a fantastic summer holiday!
