Welcome to Class 1!
Gardening - June 2019
We have planted a Turks Turban Squash, a pumpkin, carrots, beans and potatoes to watch them grow, then eat them for our Harvest soup.
Reading Challenge Reward - June 2019
To celebrate the successful end to our Half Term reading challenge we held a Teddy Bears picnic outdoors. We enjoyed lemonade, squash, cakes and biscuits along with our lovely teddy bears. Well done everyone!
Victorian Day - May 2019
On Tuesday 21st May, the children stepped back in time to experience what it would have been like as a child to go to school during the Victorian times. They were all given a Victorian name for the day and took part in a range of activities from arithmetic to observational drawing and then in the afternoon making peg dolls and spinning tops. The children followed the rules of a Victorian classroom for the day and even got to try gruel for their snack! The children absolutely loved the day and learnt so much through first hand experiences. A massive thank you to all of the parents for their support with organising the brilliant costumes.
Gressenhall Visit - April 2019
On Monday 29th April, we took Year 1 and Year 2 to Gressenhall Farm and Workhouse as part of our topic on Victorians. This was a brilliant opportunity for the children to experience what it was like to have lived in Victorian times.
We're All Special
We worked really hard together as a school to produce this lovely display as part of our learning on everyone being different, but equally special. All children in the school then wrote down what made one of their friends special.
A Little Bird Told Me
Year 1 were part of a brilliant performance for this year's Christmas play.
As part of their topic on Beccles, Year 1 went on a walk around the town to learn more about the local area. They also enjoyed a visit from a local historian.
As part of their topic on hedgehogs, Year 1 used their maths skills to weigh out the ingredients that they needed to make hedgehog cupcakes.
Year 1 went on an autumn walk to help them research ideas for their autumn poems. They collected 'signs of autumn' to make an autumn crown.
Gardening - May 2018
We have planted peas, carrots, potatoes, beans and parsnips ready for harvesting later in the summer - yum yum!!
3D Shape Hunt - May 2018
Our class had great fun finding 3D shapes in our school. We even discovered that Mrs Bartrum's handbag was a cube!
2D Monster Shape Hunt - May 2018
Class 1 went outside in the sunshine to locate various 2D monsters, they then had to name them and list their properties.
Norwich Castle - March 2018
On Thursday 8th March, Ravensmere Infant School visited Norwich Castle as part of their learning on Castles.
We had a fantastic time meeting some of the residents of the castle and learning all about what life was like living in the castle.
The children had the opportunity to handle and explore various objects that were several hundred years old as well as having a go at making their own pennant. They also learnt what it was like to work in the castle and about the types of jobs that different people had.
We all had a brilliant day and have enjoyed bringing what we learnt on the trip back in to the classroom.
Little Red Riding Hood - March 2018
Class 1 have been learning the story of 'Little Red Riding Hood'. We have acted out the story and performed it to our class.
We were brilliant!
World Book Day - March 2018
Due to the heavy snow, we rescheduled our World Book Day for Friday 9th March and were so impressed with the amount of children that were able to come to school in such fantastic costumes!
The children also took part in some book themed activities throughout the day!
Alien Crash Landing
Ravensmere got a surprise this week as an alien spaceship crash landed in their playground!
The children approached the spaceship very carefully and listened to see if they could hear anything inside it.
They then cordoned off the area and made signs to let the aliens know they were welcome and not to be scared!
