Year 1

Year 1 – Oh I do like to be beside the seaside…

Yesterday Year 1 and 2 went on a trip to South Shields beach as an end of year treat. The children truly deserved it after all of their hard work in Year 1 this year. Everyone had great fun and the weather stayed nice for us all day! Needless to say that we didn’t stay in the water for too long as it was very cold but thankfully the warm sun dried us off quickly!

Year 1 – Fun on Games Day

Although Sports Day had to be cancelled on Tuesday due to bad weather, the children got out today and took part in Games Day. During the day the children got to take part in lots of different sporting activities showing that everyone can get involved and have fun through sport.

A great day was had by all! Take a look…


Year 1 – How far will it go?

As part of their Science lessons about forces, the children in Year 1 today carried out an investigation. They wanted to find out how they could make the car travel the furthest using a ramp. The children quickly thought that they could do this by increasing the height of the ramp but wanted to prove it! They thought about how they would test this and explained it (method) and then predicted what might happen. They recorded their results in a table by measuring the distance the car went.

You’ve been real scientists today- great job!

Year 1 – Being a good neighbour assembly

Today Year 1 presented their final assembly to Year 2, Reception and all their families. The theme of this assembly was about being a good neighbour and that means not just to the people who live next door to us but to the whole world! We used the story of the Good Samaritan from Luke’s Gospel to explain that Jesus wants us all to love each other as we love ourselves.

You all had brilliant speaking voices, fantastic acting and the singing was amazing. I’m very proud of you all!

Year 1 – Forces in action!

As part of their Science lesson, Year 1 went on a ‘Force Hunt’. We looked around school and outside for places where forces needed to be used. The children used ‘Force Arrows’ to show the direction of the force.

Well done Year 1 and you even spotted some things that I didn’t…
