Year 1 had a great day out at the CLC. We leant how to draw, write and animate on the computer. We are very proud of the way all of the children represented Hawley Primary School and they did great work, click on the link to see their creations. 4.2.22

Year 1 learnt about the Hindu festival of Diwali. We had some special visitors from Year 2 who told us all about how they celebrated. Then we looked at Rangoli patterns and made our own patterns using our maths equipment.

We learnt about why people celebrate Bonfire Night and used our paintbrushes very carefully to create these firework pictures 

As part of our celebration of Black History Month, the children in Year 1 have been listening to different poems and stories by John Agard and Grace Nichols. We watched a video of John Agard reading his poem ‘Windrush Child’ and read lots of other poems which you can see on this link
