A warm welcome to all of the Parents & Children! We have had a great start to the new term and we have been amazed by the children. They have all been polite, hard workers. We have been settling into Year 1 by thinking about the class rules, our presentation and our MacArthur class values. Take a look at our new display below.
If you can please come along to our Meet the Teacher on Tuesday 11th at 3.30pm.
We hope you child has enjoyed their first few days as much as we have!
Today Year 1 along with the rest of the school went outside to take part in Outdoor Classroom Day.
Outdoor Classroom Day is a global campaign to inspire and celebrate outdoor learning and play. The campaign days act as a catalyst for more time outdoors every day, both at school and beyond.
Learning and playing alongside Year 2, we became outside artists. We painted stones, made stick men and pictures using natural materials.
Today was Mrs Matthews' Reading Raffle assembly - there are many books to win, if you read 5 times a week! Our Y1 winner was very pleased with her choice.
MacArthur had a fantastic visit to Bressingham steam museum. After an eventful start involving a broken down bus, we had a brilliant day. There were a number of trains to ride on and lots of different things to see. The trains were very bumpy and chilly - not at all like the trains we ride on today!
We saw a Royal carriage complete with bedroom and bathroom, lots of steam machines and even got to go in an original Victorian signal box! There were lots of museums to visit as well, full of exciting things to look at!
However, MacArthur's favourite part of the day was the Victorian Galloper. Made in 1897 and recently restored, it was lovely to see the enjoyment toys from the Victorian era can still provide.
A big THANK YOU to the parents who helped out on our trip!
For some of us, the excitement of the day was just too much!
Year 1 had some visitors today...Year 3! Year 3 have been writing stories about Paddington bear! MacArthur were very impressed with their tales - some were scary, some were funny but all were brilliant!
In PSHE, MacArthur have started looking at our new Super Learning Gems. This week's gem was co-operation. We learnt that this means working together. We played some team games in the hall and four of us earned our co-operation gem!
MacArthur had a brilliant Victorian day today! Dressed as Victorian children they experienced life as a child in a Victorian classroom - complete with teacher and a dunces hat!
They took part in lots of different lessons including drill, reading, writing and arithmetic (the 3 r’s), art and technical drawing. They were on their best behaviour too!
