'Inspiring Learning Together'

White Rock Primary School


Buzzards are beautiful, graceful and strong birds of prey. They have to find their own food by hunting, so they constantly have to learn where food can be found and how they can get it. Buzzards learn every day in the same way we do.  Buzzards have fantastic looking and listening skills. These skills are as important to us in our learning as they are to Buzzards in their daily life.


This Terms Theme

This term Year 1 are learning all about fairy tales! We have already listened to a wide variety of stories. We will be adapting them and writing our own versions. We will also be learning how to create different story settings in preparation to perform our own puppet show to Reception children. The children will have an opportunity to role play their favourite character. We would like to invite you to share our learning on Wednesday 17th July 2019.
