Year 1 - India
Welcome to India class. We are in Year 1 and our teacher is Mrs Lilley. Mrs Long and Mrs Riccobena are our Teaching Assistant. We’ll be learning through lots of exciting topics!
In our topic work this week we have been thinking about different types of fruit and where they come from, in particular fruit from far away countries. We looked at how the fruit gets from where it grows to the supermarkets that we buy it from. We tried lots of fruits including orange, mango, grapes, passionfruit, kiwi, papaya, nectarine, pineapple, dates and pomegranite. Most of us tried at least one new fruit that we had never eaten before. Some were delicious, some not so delicious but we all enjoyed the taster.
On April 20th Year 1 went to visit Norwich Castle. We met Lady Isabelle, Caroline and Maud.They told us about living in a castle.They were preparing for a jousting competition so we made pennants to show our support for our favourite knight.Did you know that up to four people could go to the toilets together? They used to gossip while they were there! We had a great day in the sunshine.
As you may remember, recently the whole school had a trip to Houghton Hall. We went to see the Colour Space paintings and outdoor sculptures by the artist Damien Hirst. Everyone had a fantastic visit and everyone made up their own minds as to whether they liked Damien Hirst's art or not! Look at our photos to see what you think....
