We are a Year One class, our teacher is Mrs Hicks and she is assisted by Miss Angove who is also our Lunchtime Supervisory Assistant.

The pictures below will give you an overview of some of the projects we are looking forward to this year and we hope you are able to visit us from time to time to see how we are progressing!

Our topic for this half term is 'What's Under My Feet?'. The main focus is on tin mining and we really enjoyed a visit to Geevor Tin Mine at Pendeen where we went underground, panned for gold and learned how miners were able to see in the dark without electricity!
Cornish pasties were a big part of the miners' diet so we had a go at making our own - they were delicious!
We have also continued with our swimming lessons this term and are all doing really well in the water.
Our topic leaflet and slideshow reflect lots of other things we have been getting up to...
During the first half of term we looked into volcanoes (though not in the literal sense...)!
We carried out volcanic experiments and asked lots of questions about how they are formed and learned lots about lava!
Our fiery theme continued in literacy; the tale of The Volcano Dragon was revealed and we used our imagination to write poems about the myth. We also read the story of Miss Fanshawe and the Great Dragon Adventure then innovated our own volcano adventure story.
A few more dragons featured when we found out how New Year is celebrated in China...!
