… 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?
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!

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!
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!
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.
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.
