Patcham Infant School

We dream, we aspire, we thrive. Powerful learning for life

Spring Term



Once upon a time… Year 1 were quietly learning in their classrooms when…

BOOM!    From nowhere a strange package arrived in the Book Corner. They carefully opened it and found lots of Traditional Tales and a shiny, silver memory stickWhat happened next?

They decided to plug it in to the computer and on the stick there was a file called ‘message to Earth’. They opened the file and listened very carefully. The message was from aliens telling them that they had been observing Earth and they wanted to know about ‘reading’ and ‘stories’ and where on our planet the stories they had sent us had come from. 


Our mission was clear, we needed to read the books, find out as much as we could about them and make contact with the aliens…

A Marvellous Middle at Preston Manor...

Year 1 went back in time to work as servants at Preston Manor. Rosemary and Louise met us, showed us around the house and put us to work!

Look at all the jobs we had to do! We had to clean and polish in the bedrooms, wash, iron and clean in the laundry and boot room and prepare food and drinks in the kitchen.

We realised how hard it was to be a servant one hundred years ago! Our day would have started at 6am and finished at 10pm.
