Year 1 have just finished their half term swimming sessions. All of the children have gained water confidence and had a great time learning to keep safe in the water. They even had a chance to meet Armband Alfie!
KS1 Exmouth Beach Trip
As part of the Key Stage 1 seaside topic, Years 1 and 2 went on a trip to Exmouth beach. The children had a brilliant day and enjoyed meeting the lifeguards and learning about beach safety, having a tour around the RNLI station, creating beach art and paddling in the sea.
Year 1 enjoyed their visit to Tiverton Castle and even came into school dressed as royals, knights and peasants. They looked around the castle grounds and enjoyed seeing the old castle ruins. The children had the opportunity to try on armor and helmets and feel the weight of a canon ball. The day ended with children making sketches of the castle for a class display.
In our home learning we have made igloos as our topic is all about the Arctic.
