Role Play

We have been learning all about people that help us in Class 1.
We have been taking on the roles of doctors and dentists as well as the emergency services!


Making our own packed lunches

Class 1 had a great time making their own packed lunches today. Thank you to all the Mums who came to help us! We made salad and wraps,pitta breads and rolls with tuna,egg,ham,and cheese. Some children tasted all of them! As it was such a lovely day we decided to eat our lunch in the garden and had a picnic. For dessert we made cereal bars and we all had a little yoghurt.

We were amazed by how many children tucked into all the raw vegetables, carrot and cucumber were the most popular.
Well done everyone for trying new foods.



'Exploring Nature'


Class one has been exploring Nature in our garden area.
We used different experiments and found Insects, Plants, Leaves, and Animals by using magnifying glasses, our eyes, our ears, and our nose.

'Happy Nowruz!'

On 21st March Class one celebrated Nowruz with Las and Lanaz and their Mums. It is the celebration of the New Year in Kurdish society and is a festival welcoming the Spring. We shared some delicious chicken biryani together as well as lamb koftas and salad. All the children really enjoyed the food……Amelia even said “Can we have this everyday?” Many thanks for all your hard work and Happy Nowruz!

"Spring Flowers"

In Class 1 we have been looking carefully at some Spring flowers. Some of us chose to look through the magnifiers to see the flowers close up and some of us wanted to represent the flowers with the colourful chalks. We all were very focussed and concentrated well as we found out more about the flowers. We used our senses to see, feel and smell the flowers and we learnt new words about them like “petal” and “stem”

Number Rhymes

We have been learning some number rhymes in class 1. 5 little speckled frogs, 5 little ducks and 5 elephants.
The children have really been enjoying using the props to go with each song. Some of them are beginning to recognise the numerals up to 5 and are learning how to count one more and one less each time.



We have been acting out the roles of waiters, chefs  and customners in the cafe this week. We take orders and cook them up in the kitchen. Anyone for cappuccino and a panini? Phew it’s been hot and busy work.

'Christmas Celebrations'

Class 1 had a wonderful Christmas celebration

'Real fruits and vegetables'

This term class 1 have been exploring real fruits and vegetables in the role play area. We were really good at concentrating to cut them up and made delicious meals for or friends!


We have been interested in exploring different kinds of light. We used torches and tea lights and even a light box. We found the lights very fascinating and spent a long time focussing on different ways to use them.
