This week, we started a new topic for DT. The children loved exploring a variety of puppets and watching a video of a marionette puppet being made. The children used hand and finger puppets to create stories and shared them with the rest of the class. We considered what the puppets were made from and discussed how they work.
It has been another busy week in Year One.
In science, we carried out a fair test as part of our everyday materials topic. We set up a test to see which fabrics would be suitable to use for an umbrella. The children made predictions and then observed what happened when water was dropped on to the fabric.
In music, the children have been learning about pitch and rhythm.
The fabulous Year One class 22/23
Our final week in Year One has been filled with love, laughter and some emotional good byes.
On Tuesday, we said goodbye to the wonderful Mrs Cooper who has been at South Tawton and Little Beacons for many years. She has been a huge part of the children’s lives and we will miss her greatly! Thank you for everything, Mrs Cooper!
Sports day was a huge success. Thank you to all of the family members who came to cheer on the children and participate in the biggest event of the school year… the mum’s and dad’s race which was not at all competitive!!
On Friday, we had a leavers assembly for some very special members of staff! Thank you Mrs Marvin, Mrs White, Mrs Cooper, Mrs Watkins, Mrs West and Miss Coleman for everything you have done for our school and community. You will be missed a huge amount but will always feel part of our South Tawton family!
Mrs White receiving a very special gift which she will treasure forever!
