For parents unsure of what IPC means, here is a link to the International Primary Curriculum home page.
We have been looking at materials and clothes in class for our IPC topic. One of the tasks was to design a tartan. Here are some of the children working at this task.
Such concentration required!

Very pleased with the hard work.

Thanks for sending in the shoe boxes. The children are having great fun painting and designing their Lila story boxes. Here they are in the very early stages in our new Art Activity room!

Thank you for sending in all the reflective items for our science topic.
Here is a fun game to play!

Light and dark

Year One are going to be studying the book below in our literacy lessons for the next two weeks. We will be making story boxes and doing lots of lovely activities around the book.

Lila and the Secret of Rain

Author:David Conway and Jude Daly

Lila’s Kenyan village is suffering a terrible drought. When Lila hears her mother say that ‘without water there can be no life’ she sets out with her grandfather’s help on a quest to uncover the secret of rain and so save the village.
This modern folk tale reminds us of how necessary and precious water is for survival and provides opportunity to explore together some larger themes of conservation and for the children themselves to consider ways in which they themselves can make an active contribution.
Year IG have been enjoying making number bonds to 10 with cheeses and cubes!

What patterns can you see? Can you make up some take away sentences for the patterns?
If      0+10=10                        0+20=20
          1+9=10                        1+19=20
          2+8=10                        2+18=20
           3+?=10                       3+ ?  =20

Can you continue the patterns?

Look at Yr1 on the day they came to school in either Traditional/National Dress or their favourite clothes.
We had a great time talking about what we were wearing, using super vocabulary to describe textures, colours, materials....
There are copies of these images on the corridor wall outside 1H - do take a look!
