The final week of this half term has been a busy one in Year 1! On Tuesday we visited the prayer stations to learn all about compassion. We learnt about different types of compassion including caring for ourselves, for animals and we sent a prayer to different places around the world. On Wednesday we enjoyed doing some back to back drawings during PE. Thursday found us focusing on the story ‘The Good Samaritan’. We talked about how the Good Samaritan showed compassion, even though he wasn’t friends with the Jewish man, and made sure he was cared for. We then drew and wrote about our favourite scene from the story. During Tree Top Thursday we had great fun acting out the story! We also made Valentines Cards this week which the children loved making.
After half term we will be celebrating Welsh week and enjoying our school eisteddfod on Wednesday 1st March. Children are welcome to come to school dressed in red clothing or traditional Welsh costume if they prefer. World book day this year will be on Friday 3rd March. Children will be welcome to attend school dressed as their favourite book related character!
Year 1 have worked really this half term so please enjoy the well earned rest. We look forward to seeing you all again in a weeks time!
