Our topic this term is 'bears'.

Here are some pictures of us having fun in P1.....

During play we are using compare bears to finish patterns and to order for size. We also made a bear cave so that we can act out the story 'Going on a Bear Hunt'.

We went on a bear hunt around the school grounds. We sang 'We're going on a bear hunt, I'm not scared' while we searched for the bear.

In February our new topic was birds. We made bird feeders to hang in the garden. In class we had a camouflaged bird hide so that we could use our binoculars and tick sheets to record the birds that visited our school garden. We can identify robins, blue tits, chaffinches, blackbirds and goldfinches.

On Shrove Tuesday we made pancakes. We followed the instructions to make the batter together. Next we took it in turns to pour our own pancake into the pan, watch for the bubbles to appear and flip it. We had to be very careful! Once our pancakes were cooked we sprinkled sugar on top and enjoyed frown They were delicious. Mrs Hawthorne had 3! Afterwards we ordered the steps in the recipe.
