All Saints Church
As part of our current RE topic we have been learning about Baptism. On Friday 18th October Year 1 went on a trip to our church, All Saints. Father Christopher met us at the church and showed us how a real baptism takes place. We saw the font, the shell that is used to wash away sins and the two types of special oil that are used too. Some children were chosen to help Father Christopher act out a baptism so that we could see what it would be like. We learnt a lot from this trip!
Today (30th September) we went on our first Year 1 trip. As our first topic has been ‘Into the Woods’ our teachers thought it would be a good idea to visit Wendover Woods. After an exciting journey on the coach we started our trip by going on a ‘Gruffalo hunt’. We had to use a map and follow the route to find all of the animals from the Gruffalo. We saw lots of exciting things in the woods while on our walk. At the end of the walk we even found the Gruffalo! After some lunch we went to a den building area. We worked as teams to build dens for the different animals that we thought might live in the woods. Before we went home we were lucky enough to have a little bit of time in the play area too! What an exciting day we had!
On Monday 23rd September 10 eggs were delivered to our class in an incubator. We looked after them and by Friday all of the eggs had hatched and we moved them into the brooder box. Each day we have been looking after them by cleaning them out; giving them fresh water and food. Once they were a bit bigger we even made a run for them and got to hold them very carefully. We have loved having the chicks in our class.
