Do monsters really exist?

What’s that creaking outside the door?

This term we are answering the question – Do monsters really exist? 

Last week we did lots of interesting work on the ‘Gruffalo’ and went on a monster hunt into the deep dark woods to see what we could find.  This week we have also been looking at monsters that really did once exist… Dinosaurs

How many dinosaurs can you name?

All the children have been learning lots of different facts and putting it all into our own class dinosaur book.

Did my Nan have a ripstik?

Welcome to Year 1,

This term our topic is Did my Nan have a ripstik? We are learning about what toys our Mums, Dads, Nans and Grandads played with. The children have been very excited by the old toys brought in by the Salford library service, it would be great if they could look at some of their parents and grandparents old toys. Have a look in the loft or the garage to see if you can find any!!

I have also asked the children to ask the teachers what their favourite toys are and already Mrs Noone has told us that she had a tin pram for her dolls. The children found this a little strange – tin!!
