Hello Year One,

It has been lovely to see so many of your faces in school the past few weeks. It looks like you've been having lots of fun with Mr Rees and Ms Barnham. I loved seeing your rangoli patterns in the playground this afternoon: what a colourful sight they are! I hope those of you who aren't in are keeping well and staying busy.

Today there is a new PSHE task all about kindness. Being kind is really quite important isn't it? It can make a big difference to the people around you and make them feel very happy. Mr Attride made me a nice cup of coffee this morning and it certainly made me very happy! Being kind doesn't have to be hard either - it can be something as simple as helping to tidy up without being asked, or saying something nice to a friend. Try to think about what small acts of kindness you might be able to do over the next week and have a go at recording them on a kindness chart. Click here for the lesson on making kindness count and how to make a kindness chart.

Take care and hope you all have a wonderful Wednesday!

Ms Attride

Tuesday 7th July

Hello Year One. I hope you had a grrreat day yesterday. Did you get to know the story 'The Tiger Who Came to Tea' even better? What did you

think of the tiger? Was he friendly? Why do you think so? What a lot of questions. Phew! 

Yesterday in class we flew from Bristol to Delhi over Ireland, Jordan and Egypt, noticing features of the Earth as we travelled. Before we left,

we watched this video all about our lovely city...Bristol! It is from the Visit Bristol website and shows lots of our landmarks you will recognise.

How many can you name? Click below to watch it:

When we landed in Delhi, we took in the sights of the city. Lots of us liked the buildings of the Old City but also thought the art and lights in

the New City were great too. What will you think? Click below to glimpse Delhi:

The flight took twelve hours and when we landed, the first thing we talked about was the heat of the city and India's hot, dry climate in the

north of the country. We visited the Red Fort, Jantar Mantar, Qutub Minar and Jama Masjid and took our sketch books along with us. You can

find the sights we saw below if you want to do your own sketches.

Today we will learn about the different prices of some food items and make rangoli patterns on the pavement (playground) in chalk. 

You can find a template under the price list.

Have a wonderful time. 

Let's write a postcard home later in the week.

Bye for now!

This Week's PSHE and History Activity: Paul Stevenson and Princess Campbell

How did these Black Bristolians make a difference?

This week in school, we have learnt about the story of Rosa Parks from the 'Little People, Big Dreams' storybook. You can find an animated

version of her story below. We drew the bus in which Rosa stood up for her rights. Next, we started to explore the lives of Paul Stephenson and

Princess Campbell. They are two very important Black Bristolians who made a difference to our city by doing something heroic. You can find

out about them below. Pages 1-4 tell their story and there are some suggested activities on pages 5 and 6. You may just want to discuss the

stories with your child and use them a start point for other learning. Parents, I am also sharing 'A Parent's Guide to Black Lives Matter'. It is

here to help structure conversations and support you in answering any questions your child may have. I hope you find it useful.

This term’s RE: Why is Our World Special?

How our differences are what makes us special!

Last week we thought about what makes each of us different and unique, and how these differences are what makes the world so special. This

week I’d like you to listen to a story called The Hueys in the New Jumper  by Oliver Jeffers. Click here to watch a YouTube video of the story. 

Please remember to always ask an adult before accessing YouTube.

It’s a great book all about being different and how boring it would be if we were all exactly the same! After watching the video, could you

have a go at designing your own Huey? Think about how you can make your Huey different to all the other Hueys! Click here to download a

template Huey for you to start your creation on. Please do send in any pictures of your Hueys. I’d love to see them!
