It's Springtime! Our theme for this half term is *Interdependence*. By the end of this term the children will have a stronger understanding of what it means to depend on somebody and how others may depend on them.
Our key question this half term is:
Who do i depend on and who depends on me?
1CW Had their class assembly yesterday. The children shared the work that they had been doing this past half term. Including the work that they had been doing on the book 'Something Else', some masterful maths challenges and some of their amazing art work as well. Pictures can be seen below.

For weeks the children in Year 1 have been planning their own talent show. They thought long and hard about which talents they were most proud of and have practised their skills non stop. Everybody was so proud of them for their confidence and awesome performances. Well done Year 1! What an amazing way to end the year!
Yesterday Miss Evans brought her dog Toby into school. We are learning all about pets and how pets can depend on us so it was really good for us to spend time getting to know Toby. We watched Toby do some cool tricks, we brushed him and we took him for walk. We spoke about what Toby needs and now we are going to write and information booklet about how to care for a dog.
Today we had a very special visit from West Midlands Ambulance Service who came to talk to us about how we can depend on them when we are poorly. We learnt about using the 999 service properly if we ever need to and even got to ride the ambulance! We had a great time and really enjoyed trying on the helmets and watching our friends be bandaged. Thank you so much to the West Midlands Ambulance team who were so patient with us and took the time to answer all of our questions.
Below are some photographs from the 1LO'C Class assembly. They talked about all that they learned in class this term. Some photographs can be seen below:
Mr Willy Wonka was in trouble this week because he has not been using Fairtrade chocolate. The police said they would close his factory down if he didn't start using it straight away. We wrote Mr Wonka letters to help him understand how important this is.
Have a read of our amazing recounts about our Litter Pick.
We dressed up as characters from the story 'Charlie and the Chocolate Factory'. We have really enjoyed making and inventing new chocolate in our role play area and also writing letters to Mr Wonka about using Fairtrade chocolate in his factory!
We have been taking responsibility for our community by picking up litter in Manley Park. Well done 1CE!

Peer learning is a form of co-operative learning that enhances the value of student-student interaction and results in various advantageous learning outcomes. A program of education that has benefitted from the provision of 'intellectual scaffolding', set in motion by the teachers and leaders at Manley Park.
