Welcome to Year 1’s fantastic, new blog!
Please take some time to have a look. It would be great if you could leave a comment and tell us where in the world you are.
About a Nurse – By Abdulahi
Yesterday a real life superhero called Fiona came to visit our school. She taught us about her work as a nurse in a hospital.
Fiona showed us her stethoscope and torch. She uses her stethoscope to check patients’ hearts and her torch to check patients’ ears, eyes, and inside their mouths.
We think Fiona is a real life superhero because she looks after people when they are ill and makes sure they feel better!
This afternoon we learnt all about Shrove Tuesday, and what it means to Christians. We learnt about Lent, the time of fasting before Easter, and that some Christians give up special foods for Lent.
We shared some pancakes with lemon and sugar. Luckily, this morning in maths we had been practising halving shapes and making sure that the two parts were equal. So we could halve our pancakes and share them fairly with a friend!
Maybe a bit too much lemon on this pancake!
Today was a fabulous wow day, with all the children and staff dressing up as superheroes! We were lucky enough to have a visit from the fire truck and firefighters from Highgate Fire Station, real life superheroes who also shared with us some really important safety tips. They asked all children to go home tonight and check that they have working smoke detectors in their houses – have you checked yours lately? For more information about keeping safe at home, please visit our local West Midlands Fire Service online: Fire Safety Inside the Home .
Thanks to everyone involved – we had a SUPER day!
