PSHRE - Healthy and Happy Friendships 

In PSHRE, we have been learning how to be kind and how to be a good friend. We were really happy when our friends said really kind things to us! 


We are very proud of our history timeline! We have learnt about so many different events and people during our time in Year 1 and in Year 2 so far...

KS1 Fieldwork!! 

In KS1, we went on a walk to our local park. We had to answer the question 'is litter a problem in our local park?' We really enjoyed looking for litter and litter picking in and around the park! 

We have created a display to show off our fieldwork!


LOOK! We have added to our timeline!!

We have added Black History (Mary Seacole and Windrush) and our new History topic (Travel and Transport - George Stephenson, when the tram travelled down the main road right outside of our school and the Wright Brothers). 


We have been talking about what we already know about Travel and Transport and what we would like to find out!! We have only just started our History topic and we already know so much!!!! Please ask us what we have learnt so far!

At Caldershaw, we know how important reading is: not only to enable us to find out about the world and research specific topics, but (most importantly) in giving life long pleasure. Please read your book every night to an adult and record it in your reading record book. A few pages will do, but make sure you understand what you've read and that you can answer the questions you're asked!
