Autumn 1 Week 7 w.b. 16.10.23

What a busy week we have had in Year 1 and a fantastic first half term. Well done children!

We have had an exciting week learning about Italy. We have been learning facts about Italy including population size, currency and food. The children wrote their own menus for the class Italian restaurant and decorated their own Italian flags with collage. On Wednesday we were very fortunate to have Mrs Badini come to talk to the children about where she is from in Italy, Mrs Badini gave a presentation to the children with fun facts about Italy and its culture, famous landmarks and people. On Friday afternoon the children made their very own pizza and couldn’t wait to eat them! They were then treated to some Italian Cannoncini by Mrs Orsi-Harper who came in to make them with the children, they were super yummy! A huge thank you to all of our parents who have come in to support our learning this week. Please enjoy the photos!



To finish off our History topic this term the children were super lucky to have Mr Massih (Joshua’s dad) come and talk to the children about the future of toys! The children were shown a 3D printer and had first hand experience in watching a toy being printed. They were also fortunate enough to be given a toy aeroplane to take home, just like the one that was printed in class. This was a fantastic opportunity and the children were fascinated by the making process.

As part of our ongoing safeguarding we thought this may be a good refresher for the children. Please listen to the song and discuss it with your child.

Have a restful and much deserved break. We look forward to seeing you all on Monday 30th October.

Mrs Poyiadzis & Mrs Barnes
