This week we decided to make a treasure island by looking carefully at the human and physical features you might find; including rocks, ships and palm trees. We used our Enterprise skills to solve problems, make decisions and work together to create the island, the Enterprise characters were very impressed!

In Year One we have been inspired by the work of Carol Schiff, an artist who paints pictures of the sea and builds texture using different mediums. We had a go at blending different shades of blue poster paint together and used these to create pictures of the sea. We used white to look like waves and […]

Look what we found! This week in Year One we discovered an old compass near our school pirate ship. We decided to open it to look inside and found the name E.Teach. We began to investigate and we think it belonged to a famous pirate known as Captain Blackbeard. I wonder how it got there…

A home for nature!

In Year One we had a visit from the RSPB to look at different homes for nature around our school.

We used our map skills to find different nature […]
