Blackbirds Class Page
We are a Year 1 class
Our class teacher is Miss O'Kane
As a class we have written this list of class rules:
We had a lovely end to the term with a visit from The Easter Bunny! He hid clues around the playground which we had to follow to find the bag of chocolate eggs at the end.
We return to school on Monday 9th April. Our topic will be musicals for one week and then dinosaurs for 4 weeks. You could take a trip to the World Museum over the holidays to learn about dinosaurs before our topic.
If you havent already, please remember to bring an empty plastic bottle into school.
I hope you all have a lovely time off school with your friends and family.
Blackbirds breakfast assembly is on Friday 9th March at 9am. Please help your child to practise their lines.

We have had a very busy week writing stories, adding numbers together and learning about aeroplanes and seaside holidays from the past. We also went on an Autumn nature walk around the school playground to see how the leaves have changed throughout this season. To finish, we had a visit from a lady who works in the Natural History Museum who brought in lots of animals for us to learn about. We even got to stroke a snake, frog, leopard kitten and look at an Australian stick insect and a hawk.
Take a look at our photographs.
Library day is Monday so remember to return your book in order to get a new one.
We have had a brilliant first week in Year 1. We have been learning all about our class bird, the blackbird and made some fantastic bird collages. Next week we will be learning about the famous artist Arcimboldo. He painted pictures using shapes of fruits and vegetables. We will also be learning about how to stay healthy by eating fruits and vegetables and making our own fruit kebabs.
Remember to bring your reading books and water bottles into school every day.
Please make sure that everybody has a P.E kit in school.
Have a super weekend,
