School Council Elections in Year 1

Today was Election Day in Year 1! The children had the opportunity this morning to share with their peers why they thought they would make a good School Council candidate. Some reasons included being responsible, working well with others, creative ideas and being able to speak confidently. Then the children voted and the votes were tallied. We are very proud and excited for our new School Council representatives to take on their new leadership roles in the school.

Living science in Nursery

Before the Easter break, Nursery were learning about growing plants and placed some beans in bags along with wet tissue around the classroom.  Some children chose to tape their bags to the windows, others under tables and some in the dark cupboard.

We noticed the bean in the dark cupboard, initially grew quickly but without light it has turned black. Some of the beans must have been too wet, because they have rotted. The best were the ones that were taped to the windows.

Year 1 Forest School

For our last Forest School session of this term, we combined with the Year 2s to have hot chocolate around the campfire! We listened to a story about filling up your bucket – positive things we like that make us feel good. Each child took a ball and shared one thing that fills up their bucket. As we closed out our Forest School session, each child put their ball in the buckets to fill them up. A big thank you to Mrs Bone for organising these spectacular Forest School sessions!
