In Y1 we enjoyed the 'Funnybones' story and innovating our own characters to write about.
We learnt about Florence Nightingale and how she transformed hospitals in Scutari during the Crimean War. We really enjoyed our History workshop provided by Farnham Museum.
In Maths we have been focussing on Subtraction and remembering that when we subtract the total always gets smaller.
Please keep practising the Phase Five Phonemes at home.

End of Fire! Fire! Topic Party
To celebrate the end of our Fire! Fire! topic the children enjoyed a party. We enjoyed eating firey red jellies and healthy red, yellow and orange peppers. We also played lots of games, like sticking the ladder on the fire truck! Every child also received a certificate as they have completed Fire Safety Training; knowing how to recognise hazards in the home, keeping safe at home and at school and knowing what to do if a smoke alarm goes off.

WELCOME TO THE AUTUMN TERM
We have had an amazing start to the autumn term.
We have settled into our new classes brilliantly and are enjoying our topic 'Fire Fire'.
We loved having Firefighter Dan visit from Hampshire Fire and Rescue. He told us about staying safe by NOT playing with matches and lighters. Dan also talked to us about how important it is to know our addresses in case of an emergency.
