KINDNESS DAY

On Friday 31st March we celebrated Kindness Day at Norbreck. We spent time discussing what kindness is, how it makes us feel and how we can be kind to others. In 1H we also designed our own kindness bunting. We were on the lookout for children being exceptionally kind to others and it was very easy to spot. 1H are an incredibly kind class.

Anti-Bullying Week at Norbreck

The Week beginning 14th November was anti-bullying and friendship week at Norbreck. Year 1 looked at the difference between being rude, being mean and bullying. We focused on how to be kind and made our own friendship potion. We also spent time looking at the importance of words and how to use your power for good. We explored different feelings through the character of Beegu and how to help and be a kind friend.

Class 1H are all settling in so well to Year 1 and have been working hard. We are very proud of them.

 

We have been reading lots of texts including The Gruffalo and Oliver's Fruit Salad. In maths, we have been learning about place value, counting in ones and twos (forwards and backwards) and learning our number pairs to 10 and 20. Why not have a look at the weblinks at the bottom of this page and play some of the games?

 

Our topic is 'All about me' and we have been creating family trees, painting self-portraits and learning about our body in Science. We took part in an exciting 'senses' morning where we experienced different smells and tastes, went on a sound walk and explored sight and touch. Have a look at the photos below.

 

We are designing and making a fruit salad and hope parents can come in and taste these on Friday 21st October at 2.50pm.

​Also, it is parents evening on Wednesday 26th October and Thursday 27th October.

Star of the Day

​This is Dudley the dog. He is 1H's star of the day and someone will be chosen every day to take him home. Children will be chosen for all sorts of reasons such as being a kind friend, working hard, trying their best or listening carefully. I wonder who will take Dudley home today..........
