31 postmen? That’s not something you see every day right?!

Confused?.. Don’t worry, we’ll explain all about it!

With the sun coming out, and our topic being focused on our local environment, we had the PERFECT opportunity to take our learning outside of the classroom, and head up the road to the High Street..

Not only did we head off to explore and observe our local area, but we had a very important mission. Having spent some time discussing where we live,  we now know lots more about our personal addresses.

Rather than type them into a ‘Sat Nav’ and visit everyone’s houses, we thought about why else we need addresses… for the postman! So we decided to write ourselves  some special letters that we could post to arrive at our houses in a few days time.

Take a look at us carefully writing our addresses onto our envelopes:

.. and once they were stuffed full of our fantastic writing, with a stamp, ready to post:


And off we went…

Once we had observed lots of different things on the High Street (including the bakery making Miss Stephenson extremely hungry!), we posted our all-important letters:




Now it’s just time to wait for them to come flying through our letter boxes!

This week, 1S has been lucky enough to head off over the bridge to Dartford, to watch a theatre production of ‘Gangsta Granny’. This hilarious production is based on the book by David Walliams – definitely worth a read if you haven’t checked it out already!

So early on Thursday, we sang our way to Dartford (Miss Stephenson didn’t know ‘The Wheels on the Bus’ had so many verses!) on our FIRST school trip as Year 1s!!

 We won’t give the story away, but one thing we will say is all that talk of cabbage made us hungry for a delicious ice cream in the interval (not cabbage flavour thank goodness!).

This was the first time some of us had ever been to the theatre, but you wouldn’t have known it. 1S sat beautifully through the performance, and we were proud to get comments on our lovely smart sitting!!


Have you seen ‘Gansta Granny’ yet?

If not – you’re missing a treat! If you have – we’d love to hear what you thought!
