Take a look at what we have been getting up to this half term in Year 1!
This week Year 2 visited the Life Centre in Newcastle. We had an amazing day and loved every second. On the morning we took part in a space workshop and found out all about being an astronaut. We even made our own space breakfast! On the afternoon we explored the museum and especially enjoyed the Planetarium and the science show!
We had a fantastic time exploring the Centre for Life and learning all about our senses!
Following on from their history work all about Neil Armstrong and his voyage to the moon, Y2 looked at the footprint he left behind on the moon’s surface. They then predicted which material would leave the best footprint in flour. Following the investigation, the children discovered rubber and plastic left the best print. We then talked about which material would hold a footprint best – soft sand or flour. The children correctly predicted it was the flour.
Year 2 have had a great time starting their Explorer topic. We found out what an explorer is and even did our own exploring.
Year 1 have had a fantastic last day with lots of toys, laughter and of course a big group hug! Have a fantastic summer Year 1!
To celebrate the opening of the new coastal path in September, Creative Seed have worked with all our children to rehearse an amazing carnival dance.
The children have been encouraged to attend the parade and join in the dances – once we know more specific information we will be sure to let you know!
Year 1 had a lovely time sharing their work with their families!
Year 1 have had the best day down at the seaside! We found so many sea creatures like crabs, shrimps, fish, starfish and even a Sea Hare which was huge! The children behaved fantastically and really did us proud. 🙂
