Year 1 walk to St Gabriel’s Church | October 2, 2017

The Year 1 children leave school to start their walk.

Year 1 went for a walk around the local area to look for lots of things to learn about like different types of buildings, the materials they are made from, seasonal changes and plants. They stopped off at St. Gabriel’s Church to have a look inside and learn lots about the features of a Christian church.

In amongst all of that there was even time for a quick play in Barnes Park. They had a great morning out.

Last week the children learnt all about St George’s Day, the Queen and British Values. We finished this special week with a 90th birthday party for the Queen. All of the children made an English flag and were given party food which they ate out on the school field. After this the children played traditional British games such as duck duck goose, cricket and hopscotch. Everyone had an amazing afternoon – one that would have made the Queen proud!
