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!
Year 1 Became Earth Explorers!
To kick start our new topic ‘Earth Explorers’, Year 1 took part in an interactive theatre workshop. The children met their Earth Explorer Leader and began by exploring the weather and seasons. We then warmed up our bodies and voices by becoming different types of weather and learning a super tricky tongue twister.
Then we packed our rucksacks full of everything we might need ready to set off on our adventure around the world. We visited Africa where we met grumpy camels, India where we met thirsty elephants, the Artic where we met roaming polar bears, before we set of to Antarctica and met the waddling penguins.
The children had such fun flying the Torkington jet and each driver made sure to land their plane safely taking their responsibility very seriously!
