The children loved going on a hunt around school to find ten escaped dinosaurs. They learnt about compass directions and used their compasses to follow directions around the school to find the escapees! They also identified various features around the school located at different compass points and they gave each other directions to follow to get to key locations around the classroom and school.
As part of World Book Week, Year 1 children had the fantastic opportunity to join in with a Skype call with a school in Missouri in the US. The children loved talking about their school and life in Exeter and Broadclyst and comparing the similarities and differences between where they live and Missouri. The call included a lovely opportunity to read a story together and to talk about our favourite books and authors.
