Polesworth Abbey November 2017
This term, to help with our Christmas learning, we visited Polesworth Abbey.
While here the children were told all about the first Christmas. They visited the tax office, to pay their taxes to the tax collector and sign the census. After we then had a mission to find the star. Underneath the star we found the stable. Inside the stable there was such a special sight..... Mary, Joseph and newly born baby Jesus were inside, complete with angels and sheep!! The children sang 'Twinkle Twinkle' as a present to the new baby Jesus.
After, the children dressed up as special characters from the Nativity, to act out the special Christmas story.
Hartshill Hayes October 2017
Our first school trip was an autumnal day at Hartshill Hayes.
The children were very excited to go on a coach for the very first time as class 1! When we arrived at Hartshill Hayes, we were looking for signs of Autumn, the children spotted squirrels, autumnal leaves, acorns and conkers.
After lunch, the children worked in teams to build dens. They were amazing!!
We had such a wonderful time on our first school trip.
