Take a look at what we have been getting up to this half term in Year 1!
We had a fantastic time exploring the Centre for Life and learning all about our senses!
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. 🙂
For our DT topic this half term we have been looking at healthy eating. We enjoyed cutting and chopping fruits and vegetables to make different smoothies.
To celebrate World Number Day (08.03.2023), we decided to hold our own Maths Rockstar Day. We took part in different challenges ranging from numeral recognition in Nursery, Numbots activities in Reception and KS1, right up to TTRockstars Battles in KS2. The winners in KS2 were allowed to pick an adult to compete against live in the hall. Of course the children were the fastest thinkers and were victorious over staff. There were also prizes for best Best Dressed and Best Air Guitarist.
To complete our topic of the Great Fire, Year 1 went back in time to 1666. We experienced a range of activities from the past and even learnt all about their punishments too! Our favorite activities of the day were tasting Thomas Farriner’s bread and ink writing. Then in the afternoon we jumped back into our time machines and had a visit from South Shields Fire and Rescue service, they showed us how to be safe around fire and even let us have a look inside the engine!
On Thursday, we celebrated our love of reading by sharing books together with our friends. The children thoroughly enjoyed reading together and getting lost in the imaginative worlds.
We also shared the text “The Dot” across the whole school and completed a wide range of activities linked to dots and believing in ourselves. Each year group shared their work in Assembly.
