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.
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.
Before half term Y1M visited Cleadon Park as part of our Science topic, seasonal changes. We looked for signs of Autumn using our expertise and checklists! Toffee got to come along too!
We spotted lots of brightly coloured leaves, conkers and berries. Here are some photographs from our visit.
Recently, children brought home leaflets for the Christmas Child Shoe Box appeal. We look forward to receiving filled shoe boxes donated to this wonderful charity.
If you are not able to fill a shoebox but would like to make a contribution towards one – please just send in the items with your child and we will fill shoe boxes with donated items.
Follow this link for ideas about what to include in your donated items.
