We are Gymnasts!


In Year 1, we are really enjoying using the Gymnastics equipment in our PE lessons. We have especially liked working on our brand new colourful wall bars!

We have been finding new ways to travel along the equipment and trying to land on the mats in the correct way. Lots of us watched the gymnasts at the Olympic Games – we’d love to be that good one day!

London 2012!

We have started our new topic ‘London 2012’.  When we came back to school on Wednesday, the school had been transformed ready for the start of our topic and all the teachers were dressed in London themed costumes! Mrs Cox was a very keen London tourist, Miss Smith wore the Olympic football kit and Mrs Baker was an underground tube station, Baker Street!

Somebody was even dressed as the Queen- can you tell who is behind the mask?

We have begun our London work in 1S by learning a little about the Queen’s favourite animals, her Corgis. The Queen has three Corgis – Monty, Holly, Willow. She also has three Dorgis (cross-breed of Dachshund and Corgi) Cider, Candy, Vulcan. We had a go at drawing our own Corgis and giving them a Royal name, before displaying them in the classroom. We hope you like our artwork!
