Year 1

St James Rocks!

… and we never let a bit of rain dampen our spirits! For our Autumn term Topic, Year 1 have been studying ‘Woodlands’ and creatures you may find in a woodlands setting. After looking at mini beasts (and with a bit of South Tyneside Rocks inspiration) we decided to paint minibeasts onto rocks and hide them around Hebburn Park. If you’re in that area then why not see if you can find any?

Hula Hoop Performance

Wow! What a performance KS1 and KS2 gave us. They were absolutely fantastic and the routine they have been learning with Jen was not the easiest!  Well done to all those that took part in the Hula Hoop classes on Monday and Friday after school.  We were all very impressed!

EYFS and KS1 Sports Day 2016

Wow! What an amazing morning we had.  Luckily the weather was glorious and we managed to have an amazing Sports Day.  We had heats in the Egg and Spoon Race using a Tennis bat and ball, the Obstacle race and finally the Sprint.  We had 3 winners from each heat who then went on to the Final.  All the children had an amazing morning and as you can see by the pictures we all had a lot of fun!

Dinosaur Fun at the Hancock!

On Tuesday 28th June 2016, Year 1 went to the Hancock Museum to learn lots about Dinosaurs and Fossils.  We had a great time handling fossils and thinking about what they could be.  We even got to hold fossilized Dinosaur poo!  Did you know we can find out a lot about a dinosaur from their poo? It tells us what they ate and if they were a Herbivore or a Carnivore!

After our workshop we went around the museum looking at the exhibits and even got to dress up and research information like Paleontologists.IMG_6140 IMG_6141 IMG_6142 IMG_6143 IMG_6145 IMG_6146 IMG_6147 IMG_6148 IMG_6149 IMG_6151 IMG_6152 IMG_6153 IMG_6154 IMG_6155 IMG_6156 IMG_6157 IMG_6158 IMG_6159 IMG_6160 IMG_6161 IMG_6162 IMG_6163 IMG_6164 IMG_6165 IMG_6167 IMG_6168 IMG_6169 IMG_6170 IMG_6171 IMG_6172 IMG_6173 IMG_6174 IMG_6175 IMG_6176 IMG_6177

Celebrating the Queen’s 90th Birthday

Year 1 had a fantastic day on Friday 10th June celebrating the Queen’s 90th Birthday.  We all dressed up in blue, white and red and learned all about the Royal family and the Queen and decided as it was her birthday we should send her a birthday card.

At lunch time we had a great time eating our packed lunches outside and we even sang Happy Birthday to her Majesty.

We had some very interesting visitors in our class today courtesy of ZooLab. We got to see Sid the African Snail, Freddie the Frog, Ben and Jerry the rats and Rico the Corn Snake.  We were very brave and managed to stroke and hold the animals sensibly so that we didn’t hurt them.  We had an amazing day and learned lots about the different animals that we saw today.

St Mary’s Lighthouse visit

We had a brilliant day at St Mary’s Lighthouse in Tynemouth (even if the weather was a bit chilly and wet!)  We created some fabulous sand art, we climbed the stairs to the very top of the lighthouse, listened and acted out a  day in the life of a lighthouse keeper and went rock pooling for creatures.  Although the weather wasn’t on our side we still had a fun day and managed  to see some very special visitors.  See if you can spot them in our pictures.
