In class 1 we have been busy planting seeds for our spring garden. We helped Percy the Parkeeper by writing a set of instructions in our English work. We hope we will be able to observe our seeds closely to see how they change and grow. 
On Friday 9th February Class 1 enjoyed tasting pancakes! As part of our RE learning we have been finding out about Shrove Tuesday. This year Shrove Tuesday will take place in half term. We all made a Lenten promise which we will try to keep until Easter.

On Tuesday 6th February St. Mary's School enjoyed a visit from the library van. Class 1 loved listening to a scary story which made us all jump! We also chose a selection of new books for our library book box.

On Thursday 30th November Class 1 enjoyed a fabulous day out on the Santa Express. It was a very cold, frosty morning but we all got wrapped up in our warm clothes and set of on the coach to Ravenglass. We were so lucky to meet Santa on his special train, he even rode along in the carriages with us. We stopped for lunch before meeting Santa a second time. This time he gave everyone a special present before we said goodbye and hopped back onto the train. Santa even let some of us play Rudolph's jngle bells! We had a lovely day and we would like to say thank you to all of the adults who volunteered to come along and help us on the day.
Class 1 have been busy making magical reindeer food to sell at St Mary's Christmas Fair. First we carefully added oats to help the reindeer go really fast. Then we poured in some glitter to make the food sparkle and be seen in the dark. Next we added stars and sprinkles to make the food taste delicious. Finally we added the magic dust to help the reindeer fly. Santa sent us a special delivery of magic dust all the way from the North Pole! We even heard his jingle bells as we poured it into the bowl. Don't forget to buy your bag of reindeer food from the fair!

This week Class 1 have been thinking about the changing seasons. We have looked for signs of autumn in our outdoor area and also went on an autumn walk to Harrington Nature Reserve. We collected lots of colourful autumn leaves and used them to create prickly hedgehog artwork.
