The Wonderful World of Year 1

On a sunny Monday morning like any other, as eight sleepy-eyed teachers arrived at school, only to discover something very important missing from their classrooms. Was it the tables? No, they were still there. Was it the pencil pots?? No, it was something much more important than that!

To their horror, the teachers discovered that all the class mascots had mysteriously disappeared and were nowhere to be found! The children (being much more practical than the teachers) quickly organised a search hunt for the missing mascots and promised not to rest until the animals were returned. After a thorough search of the Hillside building, all the mascots were found in the amphitheater, gathered round a mysterious parcel addressed to Year 1…

Inside the parcel we discovered a letter and a beautiful handmade book. The letter explained that the Year 1 mascots had created a book so that the Year 1 pupils could learn more about them. Each page of the book was packed filled with pictures and facts about each animal. Year 1 enjoyed reading the mascot’s book so much that they decided to make a fact book of their very own!

Over the last few weeks, each Year 1 class has created their own book of facts, highlighting what makes each child in Year 1 special and unique. This project not only encouraged Year 1 to find out more about their classmates but also gave us the opportunity to share and celebrate our similarities and differences. We explored our family trees, compared our heights and speeds, and even created our own self-portraits. Please make sure to stop by and have a look at our amazing class books next time you are in Hillside. The children are incredibly proud of their work and love sharing information about their world with others.
