Sparrowhawks

Welcome to Sparrowhawks!


We are the Year 1 class taught by Miss Currant and supported by Ms Simpson, Mrs Fox, Mrs Nagel and Mrs Dando. We love to learn in different ways, working outside and in the classroom with lots of different activities. 

We have had a very busy few terms in Hawks! 

Last term we focused on the Great Fire of London. We thought about the events in The Great Fire of London and wrote some stories about this. Our furry friends came to visit and helped us to think about how they would feel running through the streets of London, thinking about the things they would see, hear and smell. 

In Design and Technology we were busy making houses from The Great Fire of London. We worked in teams and made sure that we all worked together. After we had made them we put them outside in 'the streets of London' and thought about what it would be like being in London. 

 

We spent a lot of time rehearsing for our play and we hope you enjoyed it! 

 

We have lots of exciting things coming up including our class trip, the sports festival and much more! 

 

Below are some pictures to show you what we have been doing:
