As part of our farms topic, the Year 1 children went to Copesgrove Farm this week. We were a little worried about the weather but..it was kind and stayed dry for us all day! We had a really exciting day where we met Elvis the bull, did Autumn treasure hunts in the wood, toasted marshmallows and built dens for Bertie the badger. The children loved being outside all day and we were told that we were the politest Year 1 class that Kate had ever had at the farm!!
It has been a wonderful first week back in Year 1 with lots of exciting things happening! We have had lots of visitors to teach us about kindness. This has involved the Tooth Fairy who has taught us how to be kind to our teeth, a zoo which has taught us how to be kind to animals and representative of Stroud Food Bank who has given us ways to look after people in our community.
In class, we have talked about “Colouring our world with Kindess” and making it a nicer places. We have explored different ways that we can make our world more kind and colourful, both in and out of school. We even wrote our own stories about animals that learned how to be kind!
We ended the week on a high, dressed as Superheroes – our new Superhero power is KINDNESS!
