This page is full of all the new and exciting things Year 1 have experienced. Keep checking this page for updates!
On Wednesday 25th November, we were visited by Cholderton Charlie’s Farm for a farm visit. The children followed clear hand washing and safety rules which allowed them to interact with the animals during the visit. They listened fantastically to the animal talks and asked thoughtful questions about the different animals. During the visit, they got to see: goats, sheep, pigs, guinea pigs and rabbits. The children loved hearing about them all and thought the very cheeky pigs were cute! They also found it funny when a little guinea pig snuggled into a coat for an afternoon snuggle! All of the children were fantastic representatives of the school and they really enjoyed the visit!
This week, Year 1 have discussed Anti-Bullying Week. We have looked at what bullying is and what we should do if we are being bullied. In our classes, we have discussed the adults who we should speak to and who can help us. Also, we have discussed how we are kind and caring members of the school who aim to be kind to everyone!
Virtual Firefighter Visit
This week, Year 1 and 2 were virtually visited by Dorset and Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service. Each class took part in a 30 minute presentation where they learnt all about the different services firefighters participate in. The children listened attentively and were fantastic representatives for Clarendon Infants School!
The children were told a story about a scenario which explained what they should do if they hear a fire alarm. The link to this story has been attached below if you would like to go through it again with your child. Also, the children were taught a rhyme to help them remember what to do if they are ever in that situation. They know they must 'get down, get out, stay out and call 999'.
Across the school, we have also rearranged our Reading Corners. They are now full of exciting books for your child to read - enjoy!
Across the school, we have recently launched the Reading Tree. This tree tracks how many days each child has read at home. Every time your child reads for 25 days they will moved their named apple to the next branch on the tree. Each child is aiming for the Golden Apple because that means they will have read for 250 days!
