This week in Year 1 the children have been planning and writing their very own stories based on The Three Billy Goats Gruff. We got to know the story really well first by retelling it using our class story map and using actions to help us remember what part of the story was coming next. Some of our finished stories included aliens crossing craters on distant planets and fish swimming through caves to get to the fresh, clean water on the other side.
We were lucky enough to to have Stevenage museum visit us this week and learned about electricity and light. We got to make our own circuits, look back at how light has been made in the past and investigate how shadows are formed.
We have also been busy getting ready for sports day next week and are very excited to be taking part in the events next Wednesday. A letter will be coming home today to remind us which house we are in and the colour we should be wearing.
