Year 1

Wow! Listen to our African Drumming!

During African Day, each class took part in composing, performing and recording an African drum pattern. The children used iPads which allowed them to play authentic sounding African drums by tapping pads to compose and record their pattern.

African Day

The children throughout the school enjoyed African Day last week. The children came to school dressed in brightly coloured clothes and took part in a range of fun activities.

The morning began with an assembly led by Mrs Innerdale. She told us about her son who is working out in a school in Botswana in Africa at the moment. We are trying to help them fund raise some money to buy football kits, guitars and sports equipment for the children in his school.

The children took part in numerous fundraising activities throughout the day;

As well as some language activities in class with Mrs Innerdale.

Year 1 – African Day!

On Tuesday Year 1 took part in African day. The children were encouraged to come to school wearing bring colours. We took part in lots of different activities including a penalty shoot-out, nail painting, find the elephant and a raffle. In class, the children made their own African Savannah and African necklaces.

 

Year 1- Collective Worship

Today Year 1 took part in a Collective Worship based around ‘Moving On’ having visited Year 2 yesterday. The children thought about how they felt before the transition and then how they felt afterwards. The children thought about any worries they had and offered them to God.
