We had a visit from the famous poet Paul Cookson


Computing - Making a jam sandwich

In Computing in year 1 we have been learning about Algorithms. We thought about all the steps to we need to do to make a jam sandwich. We then made our own and ate them! They were delicious!


We read the book Pizza for Pirates. Then we designed and made our own pizza fit for a pirate!


Captain Raggy Beard

We had a special visitor come into our school. He was called Captain Raggy-beard. We practiced walking the plank and listened to pirate stories. We even went on a treasure hunt and found real mermaid treasure!
