The children have made a fantastic start to their computing learning this year! Over the last few weeks, we have been thinking about what technology is, how it helps us in our every day lives and naming the different parts of laptops and computers. Today, the children used this knowledge when logging on and using the mouse and keyboard to type!

This afternoon, the children continued with their DT projects on dens. Using our designs from last week, we created some prototypes! After discussing what a prototype is, we collected some sticks and got working. The children had a fantastic time and made some brilliant miniature dens for our classroom toys to try out!

The children were eager to use the sewing needles to secure their eyes onto their faces, taking care when using different tools and being successful in today's aims!

In today's history lesson, the children thought back to their own past experiences and showed us some special times they've experienced. We discussed winning awards, welcoming new babies into the world, Christmas Eve traditions, family visiting from abroad, birthdays and lots of other special times we have experienced! The children enjoyed sharing photographs of these special times that they had brought in from home - well done!

After a busy first day back to school, the KS1 children took advantage of the tranquil wildlife area we have on our field. Over the summer holidays, a new pond has been built and has transformed both the look and feel of our outdoor area.
