Library Visit

Wednesday 9th October 

Year 1 had a lovely visit to the library this week. All of the children were really well behaved and listened carefully to stories about Teddy Bear's.

If children have taken a book from the library, please don't forget to return it! 



Poetry Competition


It's that time of year again when Warstones competes against local primary schools in the 'Annual Performance Poetry Competition'.  Warstones have done really well in previous years and we're hoping this year will be no exception!


All Year 1 children are encouraged to learn a poem of their choice to recite.  Funny poems with actions have always gone down well with the judges!  Pre heats will be held in class during week commencing Monday 23rd September.  One winner will be chosen to represent Year 1 in the 'Annual Performance Competition' at Castlecroft Primary School on Monday 30th September.

The overall Year 1 competition winner will recieve a £10 gift voucher!!!


Memory Box


This half term's topic is Memory box will teach children about changes over time, family and community. This project develops children’s knowledge and appreciation of local history, special memories, customs and traditions, and growing up.


We are asking children to bring in baby photo's of themselves to add to our class wall. We will endeavour to return these at the end of the half term.


We will be ending our topic with a teddy bears picnic and all parents and carers are invited! Invitations to follow.
