Red Nose Day
On Friday 15th March we decided to support Comic Relief by wearing red and bringing in a small donation. We designed out own red noses and learned a lot about how Comic Relief helps those less fortunate than us.
World Book Day
On Friday 8th March we celebrated world book day! We all dressed up as our favourite characters and had lots of fun designing book covers and book marks! Take a look at our outfits!
Our topic this term is Weather!
To welcome out topic of weather, we had a hook day! On this day we learned lots of different things about different types of weather and even dressed for our favourite weather condition!
At Reddal Hill we appreciate pupil voice! We therefore have school council representatives across all year groups. Our current school council representatives in Year 1 Lilies are Phoebe and Hassan.
They attend meetings on Wednesdays to discuss pupils ideas and issues about what happens at school!
World Mental Health Day
For World Mental Health day we all wore green and paid a pound to support the amazing work of The Samaritans. We spent the day learning lots of different ways to look after our own minds and the minds of our friends! We learned how to be kind and considerate to other and how to understand our emotions. Every day in year 1, we use our 'feeling sticks' and put them in our 'feeling pots' and discuss our emotions. Miss Skidmore and Miss Foster help us to feel better if we say we are sad or angry and help us understand how to deal with these feelings!
All in all, Reddal Hill raised an amazing £314 for The Samaritans. This will really help keep the charity going and save many lives of people living with poor Mental Health.
Thank you very much for your generosity!
Fruit Tasting for Healthy Schools Week!
As part of healthy schools week, year one did a fruit tasting afternoon!
We tried lots of yummy fruit such as raspberries, pomegranate, pear, pineapple and sour lime... just to name a few!
At snack time, some of us in year one are very very fussy! But we all enjoyed trying different fruits and some of us even discovered some new yummy, healthy snacks!
Our topic this term is: Babies and Families
On Monday we had our hook day for our new topic. We learned lots of things about each other and our families! We spoke a lot about what makes us and our family special. We also wore our favourite clothes to school!
