Nightingales Class Page
We are a Year 1 class
Our class teachers are
Mrs Mylett and Mrs Oasgood.
What a really busy first term we had! Have a look at some of the things we have been doing so far in Year 1-it has been lots of fun and there is still so much to do.
Reindeer visit and Grotto
We had such a busy morning with Santa visiting and his reindeer. We were able to tell the elves lots of facts we had learned. Did you know that they have big hooves so they don't sink in the snow?
Bulb planting at Sudley Field-October 2017
We walked to Sudley Field to plant bulbs using a special tool. Although we searched for a Gruffalo hiding in the trees we didn't fnd one! We did find lots of colourful leaves and we found out about an unusual tree called a tulip tree. Try to find out more about facts about this tree and share them with us in class.
Sponsored Dance - 12th October 2017
We had a fantastic time today dancing to raise money for The Royal British Legion. We danced for 15 minutes to four songs including 'Cha Cha Slide' and were all exhausted at the end!
Please remember to bring all sponsor money into school by Wednesday 18th October.
Finding out about Liverpool John Lennon Airport
Mr Greer works at Liverpool John Lennon Airport and came to speak to us about his job.
Some of us were even allowed to use some of his equipment and pretend to do his job!
Charity Day 2017
We are trying to raise money for The Royal British Legion by doing a sponsored dance on Thursday 12th October. We are also allowed to bring a small toy to school on Tuesday 17th October if we bring in £1.
More classroom fun!
We were very lucky to be visited by a Gruffalo and the Gruffalo's Child!
We like building models and have used them as a starting point for writing.
Our science investigation table was lots of fun.
We were visited by Sophie who came to Sudley Infant School when she was a girl. One of her teachers was Esther's nan! Sophie always loved gymnastics and worked really hard at it. Now Sophie works in the Beatles Cirque de Soleil show in Las Vegas! While she was visiting her family she kindly came to see us and showed us some amazing video clips of her show. Her showreel showing some of her skills is below.
As part of our Science work this week we went outside to plant...an empty plastic bottle!
When Mrs Mylett showed it to us we had lots of brilliant ideas about how we were going to use it-a rocket, a mini lab, a time capsule, a plane, a volcano, an instrument to shake and many more but nobody guessed what it was actually going to be.
The bottom was cut off and then a group of children went outside with Miss Muchmore to plant it in the school grounds. We will be checking how much rain is collected inside it every few days so we are hoping that it rains every day!
Blackbirds class have also planted a rain collector but theirs has a different design so we are going to compare how much water they collect and see who has more!
Welcome to the children and parents of Nightingales class!
