Class 1 - What have we been up to?

Roald Dahl - 13th September 

Today, we celebrated Roald Dahl day with a house quiz. The children really enjoyed working together and answering the different questions about Roald Dahl's life and his successes. 

English: Stories from a familiar author - Roald Dahl 

PSHE: Teamwork

Baton Relay 

What a fantastic opportunity taking part in the Baton Relay. Thank you to Fleetwood Charity for bringing it to us. Every pupil in school and nursery got to have a turn with the baton before sending it on its way to St John's. It was lovely to see family members supporting us as it left the school!

Farmer Parrs - April 2022 


The children in Class 1 enjoyed a fantastic trip to Farmer Parrs. We were led by Farmer Trina, who taught us all about the different animals on the farm. We had a very hands on experience, having the opportunity to feed different animals, hold a chick, stroke pigs, goats and llamas, bottle feed a lamb and stroke an owl. 

Science - Animals including humans

Science - Animal diet and habitats

English - descriptions of animals and textures

Food technology- Where our food comes from



The children listened to instructions about how to hold and care for the different animals. 

We used our sense of touch to describe how the animal felt. The children were amazed at how warm the sheep wool was. The children were very good at thinking about how the wool would be used when it had been sheared off the sheep.

We met Flower (the pig). The children spotted different foods that Flower had in her pen, this led into conversation about how diets differ for the different animals and humans. The children found it fascinating that some animals have a similar diet to humans. They were also very intrigued by how Eric the Cow used his tongue to pull up long grass in the fields. 

Rally Car Visit 

We were fortunate to have Mr Weardon visit us with his rally car that he was going to race in the local area the following day. He told us about some of the design features and also explained how the engine worked. The children were fascinated and asked some very interesting questions. 

English - Speaking and listening 

Science- workings of an engine

Design and Technology- design features

PSHE - meeting people

Bird Feeder Workshop

Mr Harding from Cardinal Allen High School led a workshop creating bird feeders. The children had to follow instructions carefully. They used recycled bottles which initiated a conversation about how we can reuse lots of different waste items. After completing the bird feeders, the children then took them to our outdoor space to enhance the nature areas. 

PSHE - Recycling and Teamwork 

Science- Living things and their habitats 

English- Following instructions 

Road and Fire Safety 

A representative from Lancashire Fire and Rescue service came to work with all children from Year 2 to Year 6. She discussed what to do in the event of a fire and how to exit the house safely. The children soon learn that they needed to use the back of the hand to check for heat as they approached a closed door. They were all able to demonstrate the "Stop, Drop and Roll" technique. 

The Lunchtime Library - September 2021

To encourage the love and joy of reading, we have introduced The Lunchtime Library which takes place every Tuesday and Friday lunchtime.
The library is set up outside in the playground, where children can borrow a book to share with a friend or read quietly by themselves. The older children, and members of staff, read stories to our younger children who are just starting out on their reading journey. 
As you can see, the children are really enjoying using the library and we have had a very successful first week of being open!

Trip to Lakeland Wildlife Oasis - 16th July 2021

Monkey Class went on a trip to the zoo!  
They thoroughly enjoyed exploring a butterfly house, learning about different sea creatures, minibeasts, reptiles and amphibians. They even had the opportunity to stroke a snake!

Ice Cream Parlour Treat Trip - 19th July 2021

All of the children have been working tirelessly trying to get themselves a place on the ice cream treats trip. Unfortunately, the winners were supposed to go to Wallings Ice Cream Parlour but this was not possible due to COVID. So instead, we set up our own ice cream parlour in school and the children made their own, it was enjoyed by all!
