We hope you are having a lovely half term break and we look forward to seeing the children safely back in school on Monday 3rd June.
A massive thank you to all the dads who participated in the FRED programme. Goldthorn Park is officially the best FRED school in the country! We have been recognised as having the most committed dads, children and staff out of 99 schools who also took part in the programme.
What a wonderful achievement!
In English, the children were reading a book called 'Spaghetti and Meat balls for all'. In the story, the characters made food for a large group of people and hosted a dinner party. We decided to give the children an opportunity to experience making their very own vegetarian spaghetti dish and having a dinner party.
The children had a fantastic time! They peeled, chopped and grated tomatoes, onions, mushrooms, carrots and peppers in order to make a tomato sauce for our meal. We added garlic into our sauce too!
Then the children watched and listened as the teachers began heating the vegetables and turning it into a sauce. The children estimated how much salt would be needed in the sauce.
We then boiled the spaghetti in water, added a little salt and oil.
After the food was made and mixed together, the children learnt how to fold their napkins. Then, we had a dinner party with relaxing music as we ate our delicious spaghetti!
On Tuesday 26th March, Reception enjoyed a trip to the Wild Zoological Park. The children learned about a range of wild animals from Asia, South America, Australia and Africa. They had lots of fun meeting various reptiles, emus, wallabies and lemurs. They even got chance to feed the meerkats. The children also had the opportunity to handle the animals including; a corn snake, blue tongued skink, a bearded dragon and a sulcata tortoise. The day ended with a fantastic free flight bird show. The children excitedly looked on as a bald eagle, a white backed vulture, a milky eagle owl and rainbow coloured macaws soared through the air.
Getting ready to welcome our lovely mums, nans and people who care for us to
our Mother’s Day assembly.
We created an Acrostic Mother’s Day poem together to share about how we feel about our Mums.
We wrote our own poems telling our mums how much they mean to us.
We finished our assembly by singing our ‘You are my sunshine’ and played instruments and sang along with Mrs Worton and her Ukulele.
We all really enjoyed ourselves.
The whole school watched a theatre production of the Wizard of Oz.
Year 1 had a fantastic day! We watched the theatre performance and enjoyed retelling the story in our golden writing!
