Autumn 2 -  RE Trip to Norbury Church

In November, Year 1 and Year 2 visited Norbury Church as part of our RE learning based around Christianity and different places of worship. We had a fantastic time learning all about the history of the church as well as the weekly running of services and the important part the church plays in our community. We particularly liked the part where we got to explore the church, looking at all the different artefacts we had learned about, and even having a go at playing the church drums and standing in the pulpit!

 

Spring 1 - The Great Fire of London

Year 1 began their half term discovering amazing facts all about ‘The Great Fire of London’ through looking at newspaper articles and Samuel Pepys’ diary. We then shared our knowledge with the rest of the school and our families in our class assembly. We had so much fun singing all the songs and showcasing our fire dance. For World Book Day Year 1 dressed up as their favourite book characters. It was lovely to begin our day of celebrations with our reading buddy partners. The children also enjoyed Lovely Ladies day and sharing their morning with you in school! We also attended the Singaround event this half term enjoying a morning of music, dance and song. They represented Torkington exceptionally well, we were very proud of their super behaviour and how they joined in with such enthusiasm. Then it was onto Enterprise Week, where the children learnt about raising money for charity. We planned, baked, and decorated biscuits and had so much fun in the process! To celebrate such a FABULOUS half term Year 1 finished off with a super fun Easter egg hunt as the children’s class treat and enjoyed eating the treasure they discovered at the end. Time for a rest ready for fun next term super stars!
