Details for the Autumn Term to follow.
Year 1 were taken back in time and visited a Victorian school where they were taught by a Victorian teacher, in a Victorian classroom, whilst wearing Victorian clothes. They were given a short Maths and English lesson and were even required to write on a slate board. The children were then able to explore the Victorian town and experience what life was like for a Victorian child.
One of Wolverhampton's Lollipop Ladies volunteered to help show children in Reception and Year 1 how to cross the road safely. The children then took it in turns to show each other how to cross the road.

In year 1 our homework project this half term was to build a waterproof boat to rescue Grandpa pig. Everybody has been very busy building and testing their creations.
In DT we have been learning how to prepare food safely and hygienically. This week we prepared salads and chopped the vegetables using taught grips such as 'the claw' and 'the bridge'. We really enjoyed tasting what we made, all our hard work made it taste even more delicious.
As part of our learning about black history month we learnt about great sportsmen. We then painted a portrait of Muhammed Ali using skills from our art topic.
