Year 1

Spring 2 - Why are Ipads more fun than my Grandparent's toys?

This half term we will be busy thinking about changes that have happened since our grandparents were young.  We will be using our oracy skills to ask them questions about what they liked to play with when they were 6years old.  We are all looking forward to World Book Day where we will be exploring the books written by Nick Sharrett.

Safer Internet Day

During Safer Internet Day, the children have been making their own posters to help us all stay safe when on-line.
This half term we have been busy exploring Mildenhall and the local area.  We have looked at making maps in geography, and finding key features in the town that have been there for hundreds of years.  We have enjoyed exploring the books written by John Burningham including Mr Gumpy's Outing.
