Library Week 2017


The Year 1 classes had a lovely trip to Morden Library.  We were very sensible on our journey and our teachers were very proud of us!


Catherine, the librarian, met us at the library.  She told us how we could take books home and encouraged us to visit in the near future with our families.  Then she read us two very exciting stories which we loved!


On Friday 13th Malmesbury children and staff dressed up as their favourite book character.  We had a fantastic day and thank you for helping us with our costumes.

Celebrating a day of languages...

Year 1 celebrated the 'Day of Languages' by cruising to Vietnam on the MV Asian Princess.  We began the day learning about Vietnam, and how to say key phrases like 'hello' and 'thank you'. 


Miss Aldrich bought in some very special traditional clothes, and a fan from Vietnam, which were very beautiful.


We bought in our luggage with essential items, and made sure we had our tickets and passports at the ready!


We headed for the Boarding Gate and went through Customs and Security before boarding the Asian Princess...



We were welcomed aboard the Asian Princess by our very own

Captain Rivaldi, and then enjoyed some light refreshments, before disembarking at Hanoi.


We were then taken to the Ball Room where we danced until we joined the entertainment staff in the Music Room for some lovely singing!






Welcome to Year 1 : Willow & Elm


In Year 1 we have already made a great start to our learning.  As you will see from the photographs we are improving the use of our phonics , reading more difficult books in class and  have visited the school library.  We've also been painting and making collages for Autumn!  


It's great fun in Year 1 and we look forward to sharing our lovely work with you!
