Year 1

Year 1 – Colour Mixing!

This week in Art Year 1 have been mixing colours. They learnt about the primary colours and how these can be mixed together to create secondary colours. We used a colour wheel to show the different colours that we had made. We then used the wheels to talk about complementary and contrasting colours and how famous artists used these in their work. Great job Year 1!

Year 1 – 1 , 2 , 3…

This week in Maths we have been counting out lots of different objects. We have been learning how to count reliably up to 20. We needed to make sure that we did not double count or miss any objects out. We have been counting shells, making bead necklaces, making cube towers and Lego models which all involved lots of counting. Well done Year 1!

Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes!

In English this week, we have been learning about labels and exploring when we might use them. We went on a ‘label hunt’ around our classroom and found lots and lots of labels! We then used what we had learnt to label parts of our bodies. Have a look at our amazing work…

 

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…
