Year 1 – Garnet Class

Weekly News 14th January, 2022

It has been a busy week in Garnet class. The children attended a ‘ceremony’ where Mrs Kent, an artist and parent of children in Early Years, unveiled her mural in the KS1 outdoor learning area. The children told her their favourite animals and the school council representatives from year 1 spoke about the work she had done. Well done to them, they spoke clearly and confidently. The ribbon was then cut by Mrs Kent to a huge round of applause!

Later in the week the children enjoyed a music lesson in the music room. They took it in turns ‘teaching’ the class about keeping a rhythm and some children were brave enough to stand up and model their actions!

Finally for this week I want to share the children’s enthusiasm for our History topic – The Royal Family.

I was amazed at how well they read dates from many years ago to place kings and queens on a time line, and they had great ideas about what the job of the Royal Family is. They even dressed up in crowns to do their work! Lots more to learn in the coming weeks.

Spring Term Time Table

Spring Term Topic Overview

Around the World with Garnet Class!

Year one had an amazing day igniting their topic - 'Around the World'.
The children experienced cultures from around the globe, including song, traditions, language, environment and best of all, food! Lots of fun and lots of learning took place and the children are eager to explore more through the term.
The pictures show the children enjoying their day and I'm sure you will agree that the costumes children came in were fantastic. 

The Great Fire of London at school (November 2021)

Thank you to Markyate Fire Service for joining us last week for the last lesson in our Great Fire of London topic. We created a London street, similar to Pudding Lane in 1666, using the houses we built in our DT lessons.
