Miss Collis had a problem for Year 1 this week with bees in the school garden. She sent the children a short film and decided to put up 'traps' to get rid of all the bees!
First the children researched bee facts to become bee experts and then decided if they agreed with Miss Collis or not. It was a resounding NO and the children thought about ways to convince Miss Collis. Then they wrote some persuasive writing, using features such as strong words and reasons to back up their argument.
We were very impressed with their persuasive posters and invited Miss Collis in to read them and hear the children's ideas. Their ideas were so persuasive that Miss Collis changed her mind and won't be putting up bee traps any time soon. In fact, next week the Year 1 children will be making wildflower seed bombs to encourage bees to visit.
We have been busy bees in Year 1 this week!
Comic Relief Non Uniform Day.
Friday 19th March will be a red themed non-school uniform day in aid of Comic Relief's Red Nose Day. We are asking you to please come to school in non-uniform, but specifically with something red (red top, red dress, red hair bow, etc.).
As before we are asking for cashless donations where possible to keep everyone safe. The JustGiving link is below for you to donate what you can. We thank you in advance for all your support.
In Year 1 it has been an exciting week! On Monday we received a letter from someone called Max and a map. We watched some security footage and saw this mysterious character in the school grounds over the weekend, getting up to all sorts of mischief.
We wrote our own police incident forms, remembering to use verbs in the past tense, for the antics Max had been up to.
Then we made our own maps, using symbols in a key.
We will keep you posted if we hear anymore from Max!
