That History Bloke visits Year One

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.

Animal Antics Visit

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!

We have been learning how to write instructions and making predictions about what the Jolly Postman has in his post bag!

Y1J’s Fantastic Gymnastics

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 Try Out the New Running Track!

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’s visit from Nexus

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.
