Our Sponsered Memory Walk for Alzheimer's

I am so incredibly proud to announce that our wonderful infant’s raised an outstanding

£830

for the Alzheimer’s society!

Our Welly walk took us down from school to the local players. We walked the whole distance of the play area and field before returning back to school for a well-earned snack. It was just over a mile and about 2000 steps each!

But that wasn’t all we did…

During the Autumn term we had lots of discussions about what Alzheimer’s is and what it means to have this life changing disease. We shared a story about a child’s grandmother who has dementia and what this meant for the child and the symptoms they could see.

We had a visit from our local Alzheimer’s Society representative who told us facts about dementia and how they help people. She explained that the money we have raised will be split equally into research for a cure, community support and individual help and care.

I would like to say a massive thank you for all of your support and time that was put into getting all the sponsors.

Here we are completing our walk on a beautiful October day!

Our Spring Term 1 Topic is...

'Are you ready to be a Time Traveller?'

Take a look at our topic web to find out all of the wonderful things we will be getting stuck into this half term.

LONDON'S BURNING!

On our first journey through time it took us to Pudding Lane in 1666.

The Great Fire of London has just started!

Take a look at how we worked together to put the fire out using the tools they would have used in 1666. There were no fire engines, hoses or protective clothing.

Ask your child how they tried to stop the fire!

Testing Materials

Year 1 asked themselves,

What material will be the most flammable?

Before we conducted the experiment we predicted what results we thought we would gather. The children thought the paper would burn first, then the cardboard and then the wood.

 

Here is what we saw...

Numbers! Numbers!  They're everywhere!

At the start of the Autumn Term we went out and about looking for as many numbers as we could find. Take a look what we created!

Creating Our Memory Bottles

As we shared the story memory bottles, we talked about our favourite memories and why they were special to us. We went on to creating our very own Memory Bottles, filling them with our memories.

Each one unique and individual just like us and our memories.
