Year 1 Experience Days 2021-2022

The UK Experience Day


We had a lovely day on Friday 22nd October celebrating all our learning about the United Kingdom and our reading book Halibut Jackson.


We spent our morning designing the palace from the story 'Halibut Jackson'. We used jewels, glitter and paint to design our palaces.


Before lunch we had some Northern Ireland fun! The children learned to sing a song in Irish called 'Rollaí Pollaí'. They also learned to say 'Is mise _________.' (My name is ________). They continued their learning by playing Gaelic football which was taught by Miss McPhillips. They got to see a lot of interesting jerseys from all over Ireland.


After lunch, it was time for our afternoon tea party. The children made some sandwiches and added some butter and jam to scones. There was a 'union jack' table where there were some lovely biscuits and treats. The children enjoyed their afternoon tea with a nice hot drink! "Tea or coffee anyone?"


When the food was all eaten, the children played some very fun party games and danced a lot! They seemed to have a really lovely day!
