Wigton Infant School

Welcome to Miss Parry's and Mrs Dalgleish's Year 1 Class page.

Spring Term 1- Week 2

On Wednesday we became police inspectors! DC Dalgleish and DCI Parry had some evidence from a crime that needed to be solved. We talked about what police officers do and what a police report is. Then the children had to investigate each piece of evidence to see if they could solve the crime and identify a suspect! The children really enjoyed developing their curiosity and  using their investigative skills! The evidence included: a broken chair, a bed sheet, an empty porridge bowl and a spoon with porridge on it...Can you identify the suspect by looking at the evidence below?!

Spring Term1- Week 1

This week we became storytellers! We have been reading the story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears. We have made our own story maps and added actions to help us retell the story. On Friday we then wrote the story using our story maps to help us. Mrs Dalgleish and Miss Parry were so impressed with how much detail the children included in their stories!

 

Autumn Term 2- Week 7 and 8

The last 2 weeks at school before the Christmas holidays have been filled with Christmas concerts, Christmas craft days and Christmas Parties!

We have also had a special visitor in school... Santa! Every Child got to meet Santa and he gave everyone an early Christmas present!

We wish everyone a merry Christmas and a happy New Year!

Lots of love,

Miss Parry, Mrs Dalgleish, Ms Burton and Mrs Hill xxx

We have been learning all about The Great Fire of London.  We have found out about who Samuel Pepys was and all about the diary he wrote. We have also discussed why and how the fire started and we compared the materials we built houses out of then and what we build them out of now. We made our very own Tudor houses and we even recreated the Fire of London with our model houses!

Autumn Term 2- Week 3

On Friday we had a Pudsey day to show our support for Children in Need. We talked about things we have at school and home that we take for granted and everyone made a Pudsey hat!

Autumn Term 1- Week 7 

What a busy last week of half term we have had! This week we have been learning all about harvest festival and why we celebrate this. We have made hedgehog bread rolls and even had a turn at being a scarecrow!

On Wednesday we also had an 'Big Draw' art afternoon and all parents and carers were invited along to join in! Activities included bubble wrap printing and painting with conkers.

 We finished the week off on Friday with a harvest festival service in St. Mary's Church.

Autumn Term 1- Week 5

 This week we have started our multi-skills sessions with our sports coach Ross. Our first session was all about getting us to work as a team! We played a game called crossing the river and we were only allowed to stand on the spots to get across to the other side. If we stepped into the water we had to start again from the beginning!

Autumn Term 1- Week 4

On Wednesday we went on our first school trip of the year to the Beacon Museum, Whitehaven.           Both classes enjoyed a toy workshop where they got to play and explore with toys from the past.         We also spent time at the Brick Dino exhibition. The dinosaurs were made entirely out of LEGO! They were very impressive! We all enjoyed searching around the Beacon Museum for dinosaur footprints and at the end of the day we were all awarded with a special Brick Dino certificate!
