As part of our History topic of toys from the past, Year One had a visit from That History Bloke! Richard came to speak to us about life in Victorian times and we even got the chance to play with some Victorian toys!
We were excited to see the kind of things children in those times would have played with, and thought carefully about how things have changed. It was fascinating and lots of fun.
In year 1 we have been learning about mammals as part of our Science topic. We know that mammals are warm blooded, give birth to live babies and that they usually have hair or fur.
We were lucky enough to have a visit from Animal antics and got to meet lots of new animal friends, some of them were mammals! We listened to the facts and had to classify the animals before we got to see them. Our favourite animal was the chicken, who reminded us of Pollito from Despicable Me 2!
All of the children have worked together to recreate the Christmas story and have retold the story in their own words. The children have been very proud of their work that has been showcased and displayed around school.
Year 1 are enjoying reading the Jolly Christmas Postman in English.
We have been learning how to write instructions and making predictions about what the Jolly Postman has in his post bag!
The school heating system has been repaired and school is open as normal.

Thank you for your co-operation today.
The heating engineer has been busy all day and we are hopeful that the school will reopen on Tuesday 11th December.
Please keep checking the website for updates.
Unfortunately, due to the school heating system not working efficiently this morning, we are sending children home at lunchtime.
We apologise for the inconvenience and will update parents with regard to school on Tuesday 11th as soon as possible.
Thank you for your understanding and patience.
In PE this half term we have been learning how to perform a routine in gymnastics.
We do forward rolls, teddy bear rolls, straddle and pike shapes then end with a balance. Here we are holding a shape for 5 seconds. There’s a lot to remember in the routine but we try our best in every lesson and we’re getting better every week!
Year 1 had a great time testing the new running track as part of Health and Wellbeing week.
We increased out heart rate and breathing by running and walking on the different coloured parts of the track. Look at us go!
Y1J were visited by the school’s liaison officer from Nexus. We had learned a lot about public transport in Geography where we looked at the local area of South Shields.
We know how to stay safe on the Metro and we learned the five golden rules.
